Shelly 1 vs Shelly 1L - How To Choose The Right Model
The Shelly 1 is best described as a single-channel WiFi-operated relay switch.
A Shelly 1 can be used to switch on or off an appliance with a maximum load of 16A. The Shelly 1 can be used to control a light, however if you need to control a light where you have no-neutral wiring then you will need a Shelly 1L instead.
The Shelly 1 uses a Dry Contact relay, and can operate in a number of different power modes:
- AC 110-230V ±10%, 50/60Hz
- DC 12V
- DC 24–60V
The Shelly 1L is also a single-channel WiFi-operated relay which is more specifically intended to be used to control lights.
A Shelly 1L can work with or without no-neutral wiring, making it ideal for placing behind a light switch to make it smart. The 1L has a lower maximum load of 4.1A and can only be used with AC 110-230V ±10%, 50/60Hz
In summary, the key differences are:
|Power Supply||AC 110-230V ±10%, 50/60Hz
|AC 110-230V ±10%, 50/60Hz|
|No Neutral Wiring||No||Yes|
