So I picked up a few wifi switches on amazon when there was a good sale. Never was thrilled with the app that it required, so I went about reverse engineering it..
After taking it apart (1 screw and snapping it open) it turns out it has a cheap esp-8266 microcontroller wifi module ( the esp-12F to be exact).
I will update the documentation as I get more figured out.
Looking at the design and the 2 different brands I have looked at it looks like these, like most chinese consumer products are probably just rebrands of the same product.

Managed to whip up a programming jig with some wire, bread board, pin headers, plastic and some hot glue.
After following the traces back I was able to power up the micro-controller for programming.
