6. Ventilation control
by Heikki Kivistö

In the box behind the normal Zehnder remote control there are two Shelly Unis. The outputs of Unis are soldered parellelly to the microswitches of remote to have speed 1,2 and short/long time 3. Above the box there is DHT22 which turns “”short 3″” on if humidity in the bathroom is over 80% (=somebody showers). The other Uni is connected to two SD18B20 – one is just showing the outside temp, other is triggering “”long 3″” once sauna reaches 50 C.
Furthermore there are webhooks with IFTT from Netatmo, it turns on “”short 3″” once CO2 level is over 800 ppm.
Of course one can also control ventilation directly from the remote control or with Shelly App.
Transformer for the Unis is feeding also led starry sky in sauna – that is controlled by Shelly 1.
Intercom remote control for Aiphone GT is in pipeline, but the solenoids for pushing the buttons are still in China …

13. Home Cinema Automation
by Marian Szetyinszki

My lifetime project of a personal home cinema took many months to finish. After installing the LED strips I discovered Shelly modules and became a huge fan of Shelly. Tons of ideas came to my mind and several projects created after. This video is a showcase of one of the Shelly projects. It presents where and how I had used the Shelly modules to automate the home cinema, to sync and group various lights in order to create atmosphere for different occasions, to auto switch the projector when in the cinema mode ,to pull the screen in such scenario and many more actions by just simply combining Shelly and some additional HW engineering and SW programming understanding for additional optional advanced enhancements.
It is a big fun and it is so easy and affordable to use Shelly out of the box!

14. Gate remote control
by Marian Szetyinszki

Typical motorized gate opening drivers are closed systems with RF remote control. The remote controls are low range closed security coded RF systems which makes it almost impossible to integrate to any home solutions, mainly for older drivers. If remote key lost, or new remote needed for new household members, one must buy a new RF remote control, let them coded for the particular gate, usually by servicemen . This is rather complicated and expensive process. Moreover, in case you forget to close the gate when leaving, you cannot do any remote control closing…. I solved this issue with a simple installation of Shelly 1. Now I can control the gate from my mobile anywhere in the world . I can share the gate control with any trusted people with no additional cost! No remote control purchasing and coding by servicemen anymore! And as a bonus, as a hobby programmer I can integrate the gate opener to any other projects- including, but not limited to, the smart watches…

17. A Smarter Dishwasher
by Mike Isaac

This is my integrated dishwasher. A budget model that doesn’t even have a built-in timer, but only installed about two years ago so we certainly did not want to rip it out. I decided instead to use energy monitoring to track the state (off, running, finished) and expose this to Home Assistant, along with the relay in the Shelly to enable automatic demand-shift timing based on my dynamic energy price tariff.

4) Remote control turn on/off of a refrigerator with control of the temperatures of the freezer and refrigerator areas; and check the ignition of the engine by reading the wire under the ignition switch that uses the trivalent refrigerator (anti-theft). Turns off the refrigerator automatically if the batteries are running low. Installation done by the workshop https://www.laregroup.it/
5) verification of the level of “”black water”” for automatic activation of the macerator for pouring into an additional tank, made by the workshop www.stopngocamper.com/
6) Used as an anti-theft device by verifying that the VR’s driver’s cab courtesy light is on and sending a notification to your cell phone.
7) Sending a notification to your cell phone when the RV alarm siren sounds by intercepting the burglar alarm “”enable wire”” and reading it with an input from the Shelly UNI.
8) you can read if you’ve left your RV’s service switch on by reading the 12V voltage with an input from the Shelly UNI
9) and other ideas that we will continue to implement

22. Shelly+Sirena+Faretto Led – Invento un allarme per la mia casa usando il dispositivo Shelly Motion
by Massimiliano Comaschi

Ho deciso di fare un allarme per la mia abitazione usando i dispositivi Shelly. Ho scelto questi dispositivi perché ne ho già installati tanti nella mia abitazione, per far accendere lampadine, aprire cancelli e cancelletti e salire e scendere tapparelle. Se vuoi qualche idea guarda i miei video precedenti. voglio fare accendere una sirena ed un faro in caso di intrusione e come rilevamento di movimento userò uno Shelly Motion, che lo considerò un buon prodotto molto personalizzabile. Ed unirò due Shelly 1 per comandare la sirena ed il faretto. Questo è solo l’inizio, poi più avanti voglio inserire anche dei sensori per porta finestra sempre di Shelly e altri sensori, sirene e faretti. Comunque per ora mi limito alla prima configurazione e voglio condividere con te il mio lavoro.

23. Software based Thermostat for underfloor heating
by Franz Goschala

I was looking for a control-unit for an underfloor heating, which I can use with Homekit for a reasonable price, but I found nothing, which is flexibel enough. Thats why I decided to create my own software thermostat to control the underfloor heating. The node-red flow controls a Shelly RGBW2 in “”white mode”” to get 4 independent channels for the underfloor heating valves (24V). Combined with a temperature sensor on the wall it works like a normal thermostat. Now it is possible to set the target temperature manually via HomeKit App or automatically by a CalDav calendar entry.

29. Interfacing with Loxone
by Stephen Shephard

This project show you just how versatile the Shelly range of products are. My main automation system uses the Loxone miniserver. I needed to know my power consumption and control a standard lamp. While it is possible to do this via Loxone its not that easy. Using Shelly products I was able to to this quite easily and all at a reasonable cost. So now Via the Loxone app on my phone I can see how much energy my apartment is consuming and turn on the standard lamp with ease.

40. Augmented Reality in Agriculture Treatments
by Massimo Rossi

This project has been implemented combining diverse technology components of which Shelly plays an important role controlling essential parameters like temperature and humidity and working as actuator in irrigation system. Traditional methods used in agriculture require time, dedication and long stable presence on field. What makes it more difficult to achieve this is amount of time is the traditional method of production with outdated technology. One of these modern technologies is Augmented Reality (AR). Although the application of this technology in agriculture is already in its infancy, it shows very promising qualities for a possible revolution in the agricultural production processes.

44. Managing Home electrical boiler system with Shelly relays and Home Assistant
by Plamen Danov

The project is related to transforming a house boiler electrical heater into a smart device. The goal is to control the heating process of the water based on different parameters and reduce electrical consumption. The heater control can be divided into two different areas. Controlling of the main heater with a power of 6KW and controlling of the second heater with the additional power of 3KW. The Shelly relays are controlling the high power circuit commutators based on the logic integrated into the Home assistant server. The First heater is activated based on control logic taking into consideration the average outside temperature last 3 days, outside average temperature last 30 minutes, and the position of the heating valves in the house. The second heater is controlled by logic taking into consideration the boiler in and out the water temperature.

45. HVAC smart monitor
by Gerardo Ortiz

My project is based on Shelly uni. I have developed a very accurate tool to measure differential pressure in a central AC unit. I have joined a Shelly uni with an analog differential pressure sensor with a range of +500 Pa -500 Pa (+-2 in h2O), and I added to them an analog process monitor, and 2 static pressure tips. Knowing the differential pressure on the equipment allows me not only to calculate air velocity along the system, but also to know when AC filter is clogged to replace it, or to know if the evaporator coil is frozen, or if the AC blower is mulfuntioning. I have created an scene that trigger a notification when the differential pressure reaches a threshold value. Also, I have incorporated to the smart monitor, 3 DS18B20, and 1 DH22 sensors (I am using 2 Shelly uni).Those sensors are dedicated to monitor AC suction line temperature, liquid line temperature, supply air temperature, and return air humidity, and temperature. With all that data and doing some basic math it is possible to evaluate precisely equipment performance. Finally, I have wired an AC float switch to the Shelly uni to monitor when the AC drain line is clogged, notifying when that event occurs, and also turning off AC unit to prevent water damage. Finally, I have added a water leak detector just in case water might reach the AC closet floor. I have created another scene for the purpose of being notified in such a case. In the video I am sharing everybody can see how accurate is this monitor compared to a Testo differential pressure tool I have hooked side by side. Also, notice that the ADC values of the Shelly uni correspond to the same numbers shown on the display. To summing up, I can tell everybody that a differential pressure sensor is not only useful for monitoring an AC unit as shown, but also very useful for developing medical tools, for measuring negative or positive pressure in surgery rooms to prevent cross contamination, etc.

47. Smart – Phone Recharger
by Giorgio Menon

The idea is very simple, I have a wall sockets close to my bed, where I leave my phone on charge during the night. Exploiting the internal switch capability of Shelly 1L and the Shelly integration with Home Assistant, I can switch-on the wall socket during the night and as soon as the recharge is complete, using an HA automation sensing the phone battery status and if it is more than 99%, the automation will switch-off the wall socket using Shelly 1L. I’ve posted a detailed PDF file, with photos and descriptions on Facebook. Here below the link of the group. Bye!

48. Shelly 1 – outdoor lighting solution
by Hamish Moore

The outdoor light needed to have the function to switch off but stay lit to light the way from the shed to the house. A sensor was not the preferred solution due to false activations and the lack of ability to leave on when the shed is occupied but nobody is outside. I configured a shelly 1 to work as a normal push-button switch for the on and off then configured the long press as a “run-down” timer. Simple but effective solution using the shelly 1 and shelly app. This needed to be simple and easily used by the client.

55. Touchless, Handsfree kitchen cupboard
by Vitali M

As an owner of the „Blum Servo Drive“ a motorized solution for my Cupboard“ . I was searching for an idea to control the doors touchless with my voice only. Then one day sone shelly1 left over and I bought some extra buttons of the Servo drive and tried to connect them with Shelly and Alexa. I opened the Button of the Servo Drive, soldered some cable to the + and – to trigger the action.
Connected the stuff with my Shelly1, placed the timer option to 1sec, so shelly went automatically off and it imitates a „push“ to the button.
servo drive get his signal and opener close the door. Ok, after Shelly works fine over the Shelly app, next step is to connect my device with Alexa and place a routine. Now your kitchen becomes full handsfree and comfortable. Did it to all five of my cupboards, in the video I show only the function of one of them and without Alexa. But it works great 🙂

57. Active booster convector (heating/cooling)
by Valentijn Demeyer

I’m heating my home with a heatpump. To keep the efficiency of the heatpump as high as possible I try to keep the water temperature as low as possible. A downside of low water temperature is that convection is very low, even convectors. To overcome this problem I’ve added a touch of smart home to the convectors, by adding PC fans to boost the heat exchange. These are dependent on the room and water temperature. In total 4 rooms are boosted like this. A plus side is that the system also allows me to take full advantage of the heatpump by cooling the rooms during a hot summer evening.

A number of battery charging applications in a small company required a smart solution to make better use of the solar energy from the PV installation. 2 forklifts and 2 charging stations for mobile stage lighting. We tried to keep the existing situation as much as possible. When they plug in a load, they used to push the button that activated a timer for a certain number of hours. Now, we added a second button which makes a ‘delayed start’ possible (if they decide they have the time to wait until there is solar energy injection into the grid). The 2.5 reports the input to an energy management tool running in the cloud. This tool then activates the appropriate output when there is e.g. energy surplus. Also info from Shelly EM, 3EM, PV inverter and DSMR smart meter is used. Outputs of the Shelly devices control the heat pump and managed loads like the battery charging.

71. BaController_12v_SolarPower
by Colin Bacon

I have a solar panel on my barn which I use to power my gardens and greenhouse with a 12v power supply. I use the shelly’s to scheduled lighting and control and direct the watering system to various parts of the garden and greenhouse. I’ve used both the 240v Shelly 1PM to controls my river pump and 12v configuration on the Shelly1 to control 12v water valves, to direct the pumped water either to the front or back of the house and then using another bank of shelly’s to control the water going to the herbs garden, window-boxes, greenhouse and lawn. It also switches on a 12v heater in the greenhouse once the temperature reaches < 5 degrees Celsius. Another bank of 12v shelly1’s controls the garden lighting and the 12v supply to the WIFI Fritzbox in the garden.
I have created a 3D printed enclosure to housing 3-4 shelly 1 units in compact one control box. The shelly’s are connected to a single sided PCB to simplify the wiring. Each shelly 1 has an associated toggle switch and LED so I can always override the shelly schedule when I’m out in the garden and also see which ones are active or not.
This solution automates my gardening chores tremendously and gives me piece of mind when I’m mostly travelling, as I can now monitor or remotely control whatever is going on in the garden due to the the cloud access and MQTT data features which are feeding data to my dashboard.
Absolutely brilliant 🙂

73. Smart heater
by Peter Nunez

After failure of a thermostat, it was time to put my Shelly 1PM in action and turn the old Water Heater in a smart device.
Not only the heater became smarter, but also the implementation of this project is decreasing my environmental impact (more energy efficient), at the same time it is leaving my wallet with some extra money at the end of the month (to buy more Shelly devices).
Energy Efficiency:
Smarter device that only turns on the device when it is necessary, optimizing power consumption. The lower the power consumption, the lower the impact in the environment.
Savings:
The lower the power consumption, the lower the bill at the end of the month.

75. Roller Shutter automation
by Nicolò Invernizzi

Every morning, i say “Ok google, good morning”. It turn on my bedroom light (Shelly 1) and my desk LEDs (Shelly RGBW), turn on my PC and opens the shutter (Shelly 2.5). Another automation is “Ok google, good night”, It turn off my bedroom light, set LEDs to 2% and close the shutter.

77. Smart doorbell
by Mattia

A smart doorbell that allows me to open my house’s main door with a tap of a button in the Shelly app.
This is very useful, for example, if I forget my keys when I’m out, or for when I have some grocery bags and I don’t want to pull out my keys.
For more details, please refer to the project detailed description on the document!

78. Multi tool
by Gerardo Ortiz

In this project I have used 2 Shelly uni, and 1 Shelly flood inside an enclosure. I have also used a Shelly gas add-on mechanism. I have added to my enclosure a very accurate differential pressure sensor. I have hooked up 1 water rope sensor, a temperature probe, a soil moisture sensor, and finally a protimeter tip. To demonstrate how accurate is the differential pressure I have incorporated to my multisensor, I have hooked up side by side my Testo 510i. As you will see in the attached video, with the Shelly uni you can be very creative joining this wonderful device with some other well designed sensors. This multi tool allows me to ping point, and monitor water leaks in general at a distance, all together with my other tools. Not to mention, the great possibilities you have to monitor the performance of AC units, such as monitoring air flow velocity, clogged filters, blower malfunctioning, temperature, humidity, ac drain line stoppages, etc. Without any doubt the Shelly uni is for me a superb device, and my favorite one
