I have a normal on/off wall switch and i want to convert it to wifi with an esp8266.
i could not find anything about this on the interwebz, everyone seems to use the sonoff devices but unfortunately those do not fit in european wall boxes.
if anyone has an idea on how to do this, your help will be welcome to me and maby others searching for something similar.

@SweetPants, my goal is to be able to control the light with domoticz as well as with the wall switch

Then checkout my project at viewtopic.php?f=51&t=23796

No need to place the ESP behind the wall switch, too little space there and reception is bad.
I have the first prototype running, but it takes some hardware design knowledge and SW (ESP SDK) knowledge to get this going.
