No idea, doesn't actually exist yet other than prototypes, I guess.

I'd say it'd be about as hackable as the Mini Pro.

However, I reckon their API will be more robust, so will be able to at least do things like write adapters for Home Assistant, or web apps, etc.

Two new Mini Pros just arrived! Looking forward to seeing what I can manage with those.

Incidentally, Kankun appears to have either rebranded as Konke, or perhaps just market themselves differently depending on location.

Just installed LuCI on one of my switches. Seemed to install fine!

Once opkg is installed and updated, just run:
opkg install luci

Then browse to: http://<your-switchs-ip>/cgi-bin/luci

Login with root and the password you use to SSH into your switch.

Slightly off topic, but perhaps one of you will know of something...

I'd like a device that's basically a wifi-connected light switch that calls an on / off URL depending which state it's switched to. (Hopefully that makes sense.)

Anyone know of anything? Could basically be used as a light switch that turns the Small K on / off, for example 😊

+Garibaldi Melecio Sure, though I've been having trouble (generally, not with Kankun specifically) since the last update 😞

If anyone has newer versions of the Kankun firmware than 3.3, I'd love to get hold of them and add them to the listing on http://homedash.org
Thanks!

I've made an attempt to get the README for my kankun-manager project translated into Chinese. If anyone in this group can read it and let me know if there are errors (translation errors only please!) that'd be fantastic! 😄

For anyone interested, I've released the Ansible deployment script I use to configure my Kankun switches.

Sure beats configuring them individually!

Also includes the `kankun-json` script that I've been working on again recently, with some assistance from +Matt Joyce and his excellent additions!

Pull requests always welcome to both projects!

+Chop Labalagun Ah ok. This script does all setup and installation from that point, and can handle many switches simultaneously 😊
