Orvibo B25 wifi power socket

On ordering more Orvibo S20s, I received an updated version with default software that I couldn’t make work using the previous UDP tricks for the v1.The are listed as model: B25UK.

It has a different layout inside:

But there is a potential replacement firmware available and the rx/tx/0V/5V pins are clearly marked. Note 5V rather than 3.3V

To figure out what was connected where, it was easier to remove the lid:

Using the terminology of L for Left side, B for bottom and R for right, counting from top (for L/R) and left (for B), e.g. top left module pin = 1L, top right = 1R, the following connections were traced:

2L: one side of LED: GPIO4
3L: ‘100’ on comms connector: GPIO0 – ground to reprogram via serial
4L: unused? with resistors to power lines: GPIO2
5L: unused? with resistors to power lines: GPIO15

1B: unused? with resistors to power lines: GPIO13
2B: relay: GPIO5
3B: RX
5B: TX
6B: untraced

1R: untraced
2R: Switch: GPIO14
3R: one side of LED: GPIO12
4R: untraced
5R: untraced

The LED is red with GPIO12 is high and GPIO4 is low, blue when reversed. Off when both the same.


The following can be used in sonoff-Sonoff-Tasmota firmware to at least start to get the functionality working.
