Thank you! I've tried a few boxes and this one has definitely been the best work with. I've remixed your front cover to house an HTTM capacitive touch switch as this works a little better for my project. I've uploaded my remix in case it is useful for anyone else and have credited and linked you as the source, hope you don't mind. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2820884

Sonoff Basic Decora Cover (Capacitive Touch Version)
by Timpro

Cool! Great remix!! How is the sensibility of the sensor through the plastic? I was hoping for something like that... That people could design new faceplates.. That's why I made it modular... Thanks!
I'm waiting for a shipment of new sonoffs to create new faceplates with temperature sensors and another one with a paddle like button. I will also modify the middle plate to add some kind of teeth to grip the wiring... Stay tuned!

The sensitive is perfect actually. I just uploaded a quick video to YouTube: https://youtu.be/Nk1kS23YD8s

I have a version of the faceplate with a small grille on top to allow for a DHT22 or light sensor. 2 of my sonoffs I modified to use DHT22's but I quickly found out they will not provide accurate temperature readings as the sonoffs itself produces quite a bit of heat. The sensor was reading roughly 27C mounted ontop of the casing without the faceplate installed, which unfortunately just won't work. It should, however, provide a proper humidity reading if you were to use it for a bathroom fan which is what my intention was until I discovered I have no neutral wire in the switch box.

I also forgot to edit the code to make the Rx and TX pins gpio's so I ended up soldering onto gpio04 on the esp itself which actually caused me more problems in the end and I lost 2 sonoffs out of it (let's forget that happened). So I'm just using 2 as normal switches right now.
