What's New in eWeLink App V5.2
The newest release of the eWeLink App, Version 5.2, is here with four impactful updates designed to elevate your smart home experience. These include enhanced widgets, customizable scene notifications, improved temperature difference accuracy, and support for Matter lights.
Android Widget Upgrade: Sorted Devices and Scenes in Homes
In the eWeLink App v5.2 update, we've refined the process of creating Android widgets. Devices and manual scenes are now neatly sorted by home, providing a seamless experience. When adding widgets, you can conveniently filter devices and manual scenes by home. This upgrade streamlines the selection process, saving time with features like one-click select all and one-click deselect all.
Filter Devices by Home:
When adding the "Device Control 4x2" widget, the device selection page now allows you to filter devices by home. Easily locate devices specific to a particular home, and take advantage of multi-select, deselect, select all, and deselect all operations for a more convenient device selection experience.
Filter Manual Scenes by Home:
Similarly, the "Manual Scene 2x2" widget supports filtering by home on the selection page. Swiftly choose a desired manual scene within a specific home, simplifying the process and enhancing efficiency when adding widgets across different households.
Customizable Smart Scene Notifications
In previous versions, eWeLink sent fixed system notifications when smart home automation scenes were triggered. In the eWeLink App v5.2 update, we've upgraded scene notifications to provide a more flexible and personalized experience. Now, when creating scenes, you can enrich push notifications with custom messages, supporting up to 100 characters. You can easily customize reminders, device information, operation suggestions, and other key details. For example, configure a "Sunset mode" scene with a personalized push message like "All the curtains are closed; the lights in the courtyard and living room are on."
Improved Temperature Difference Accuracy
The temperature difference trigger functionality can be made more flexible to meet personalized user needs. For example, users could choose any two temperature and humidity devices for comparison, enabling triggers based on differences between rooms, floors, or indoor vs outdoor. In eWeLink App 5.2, temperature difference setting precision is now accurate to 0.5°C, enabling more precise fine-tuning of values. This higher precision caters to diverse geographic and seasonal needs, ensuring comfort even in extreme weather.
Support Adding Matter Lights
Excitingly, eWeLink App 5.2 now supports adding Matter lights with dimmable, cool-warm, and colorful capabilities. You can seamlessly scan and control Matter lights within the app for a more integrated smart home experience. Customize brightness, change colors, and adjust color temperature to suit various occasions and needs. Note that when adding Matter light devices, a Matter hub is required. eWeLink-supported Matter hub is NSPanel Pro. Please update it to the latest firmware version 2.0.0.
eWeLink App version 5.2 has been submitted to the Google Play Store and it will be accessible gradually. iOS users can expect the rollout at the end of December. Stay tuned for an enhanced smart living experience!
