Using Sonoff 4 button remotes to trigger scenes?

Hi I have the sonoff RF Bridge and 4 of your 4 button remotes. At present if I want the remotes to trigger a scene in eWelink to control Wi-Fi sonoff switches then I have to configure each remote as an alarm in the RF Bridge. This means I can only have 4 buttons in total controlling scenes. Could remote control buttons be made to control scenes rather than just alarms controlling scenes? That way I would be able to have 16 scenes that I controlled from RF remotes. I am doing this because I have a switch that I want to control both on and off by any one of four remotes for different family members. The reason is it is an outside light we wish to control as we drive towards it and using the phone to do it is illegal in the UK.

Hmmm I missed that update .... just yesterday I ordered  two more RF bridges to go with the RM433, but I just checked and the 4 alarm limit is indeed gone!

 I have several Wifi-only sonoff switches, I want to control using RF-remotes. I pairded them to my Sonoff Switch, I can see them in my Ewe-link-app, but what can I do with them?

What's the use of adding RF-remotes to this ewelink-app?

Read my previous post! here is again:


The Sonoff Bridge can learn remotes (1 to 4 buttons) but only for sending these codes OUT! This means that you could replace your existing RF remote (ex. TV or AC) with your smartphone.


If you want to use Sonoff physical RF remotes you must learn each button as ALARM.

Since the last firmware update (3.3.0) you can learn 16 alarms.


And yes, you must have a Sonoff RF to WIFI bridge (the little black square box).

Thnx Ugo!
