MagicHome with ESP8285

Yet another MagicHome RGB controller. I specifically had this one.

Aside from it going 9-28V, there are no other external model numbers etc, however opening it up revealed a very different configuration inside, using an ESP8285 chip directly on the board.

Identifying this board~

Looking closely you can see it's an ESP8285, on the main board, it has the part number: ZJ-WFMN-A V1.1, ZJ-WFMN-B V1.1, ZJ-WFMN-C V1.1, or ZJ-WFMN-D V1.0

Arilux devices~

The devices are similar to the Arilux devices. Here is an overview:

Flashing~

I found that on the back it has pads to solder to so you can flash it.

board back

The IO0 port is GPIO0 that needs to be pulled to ground when powered on for flashing (as per all ESP devices). I soldered cables to each of these. Note that some are very close to other pads, so be careful. If you want to avoid soldering, also pogo pins work well with the pads.

Template configuration~

Arilux LC01 (ZJ-WFMN-A V1.1)

Automatic configuration:

Field Value Function
Module type 37 Arilux LC01 Module type

Manual configuration:

Field Value Function

GPIO13 39 PWM3 BLUE

Arilux LC02 (ZJ-WFMN-B V1.1)

Field Value Function

GPIO12 39 PWM3 BLUE
GPIO13 40 PWM4 WHITE
GPIO14 37 PWM1 RED

Arilux LC03 (ZJ-WFMN-A V1.1)

GPIO4 51 IRRecv IR Remote (optional, view console for debugging!)
GPIO5 38 PWM2 BLUE
GPIO12 37 PWM1 RED
GPIO13 39 PWM3 GREEN
GPIO15 40 PWM4 WHITE

Arilux LC11 (ZJ-WFMN-D V1.0)

GPIO4 147 ALux IrRcv
GPIO5 40 PWM4 COLD WHITE
GPIO12 38 PWM2 GREEN
GPIO13 39 PWM3 BLUE
GPIO14 37 PWM1 RED
GPIO15 41 PWM5 WARM WHITE
GPIO16 159 ALux IrSel

With all that done, one of the critical things I needed to do so I could set the colors was to run the command to set SetOption15 1.

After that it is possible to test the lights functionality, e.g. with the command Color #ff0000ff.

RF control~

If you have an RF variant, you will want to configure the GPIOs like this:

  { "MagicHome RF",    // Magic Home RF (ESP8266) - (Arilux LC10)
     GPIO_USER,        // GPIO00 Optional Button
     GPIO_USER,        // GPIO01 Serial RXD and Optional sensor
     GPIO_LED1_INV,    // GPIO02 Blue onboard LED (optional)
     GPIO_USER,        // GPIO03 Serial TXD and Optional sensor0
     GPIO_ARIRFRCV,    // GPIO04 RF receiver input (New Tasmota ALux IrRcv 147)
     GPIO_PWM2,        // GPIO05 RGB LED Green
     0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, // Flash connection
     GPIO_PWM3,        // GPIO12 RGB LED Blue
     GPIO_PWM4,        // GPIO13 RGBW LED White
     GPIO_PWM1,        // GPIO14 RGB LED Red
     GPIO_LED2_INV,    // GPIO15 RF receiver control (New Tasmota ALuxIrSel 159)
     0, 0
  },
Tasmota template
'{"NAME":"MagicHome RGBW RF","GPIO":[0,0,56,0,147,38,0,0,39,40,37,159,0],"FLAG":0,"BASE":18}'

or like this:

  { "MagicHome RF",    // Magic Home RF (ESP8285) - (IRrecv)
     GPIO_USER,        // GPIO00 Optional Button
     GPIO_USER,        // GPIO01 Serial RXD and Optional sensor
     GPIO_LED1_INV,    // GPIO02 Blue onboard LED (not soldered)
     GPIO_USER,        // GPIO03 Serial TXD and Optional sensor0
     GPIO_IRRECV,      // GPIO04 IR receiver input 
     GPIO_PWM1,        // GPIO05 RGB LED Green
     0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, // Flash connection
     GPIO_PWM2,        // GPIO12 RGB LED Blue
     GPIO_PWM3,        // GPIO13 RGBW LED White
     0, 0, 0
  },
After choosing the correct module type in your Tasmota configuration, press a key on the remote after boot for the device to learn your code. No need for the below rules for the RF varient

Full Set of rules for IR remote~

Each rule can only be 511 characters long, some of the colors below use the built in predefined shortcut color numbers.

Rule1 On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF906F Do Dimmer + EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF9867 Do Color2 1 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FFE817 Do HSBColor1 13 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF02FD Do HSBColor1 23 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF50AF Do HSBColor1 33 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF38C7 Do HSBColor1 43 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FFB847 Do Dimmer - EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FFD827 Do Color2 2 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF48B7 Do HSBColor1 140 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF32CD Do HSBColor1 160 EndOn

Rule3 On IrReceived#Data=0x00FFB04F Do Power 1 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FFA857 Do Color2 12 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FFB24D Do Backlog Power 0; WakeupDuration 1; Dimmer 100; Wakeup EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF00FF Do Backlog Power 0; WakeupDuration 5; Wakeup EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF58A7 Do Backlog Scheme 2; Speed 1 EndOn On IrReceived#Data=0x00FF30CF Do Backlog Scheme 3; Speed 5 EndOn

A Google Sheets Document to edit the desired actions and create the three needed rules is linked here.

Don't forget to activate the rules

Backlog Rule1 1; Rule2 1; Rule3 1

The hex codes for the "Data" value come from the data tag when looking at the JSON sent via MQTT. You can also view this data on the Tasmota console screen. From here you can program it to do whatever you want using Rules.
