    Can you include some more info about the components you used and how they were installed?

    Sure. Happy you find it interesting. The only component apart from the lamp itself and the wire is the Sonoff basic WiFi switch (https://banggood.app.link/h87d2LoX3Z). The Sonoff has screw terminals and a clear marking of input and output as well as live wire and neutral wire, so there is really only one way to install it. The Sonoff is fastened to the lamp via a nylon strip. Hope this helps.
