In the past, no internet access could be disastrous for smart home devices, because you will lose control over your devices in app. To keep away such embarrassment, we introduced LAN mode through eWeLink 3.5.0.
In 3.5.0, when your cellphone and smart home devices are connecting to the same WiFi, devices remain controlled over local area network even if connection to public internet is cut off. However, it is not convenient enough, as you have to manually enable LAN mode.
This time, we make this feature easier and more convenient through 3.5.10.In 3.5.10, LAN takes priority over WAN to control devices,which means your devices are controlled through LAN connection no matter if your router is connecting to internet or not.There is no need for users to manually switch to LAN mode. As a result, users have more reliable and stable control over devices.
Your devices will remain under control even when your internet service provider cut off your internet.And, you don’t need to do anything. Just turn on/off your devices as normal. Transmission delay will be greatly reduced,too.Moreover, being controlled over LAN means higher security and privacy.(Note:Schedules, scenes, share and other functions still require internet connection to set up. )
This change is applied to 3.5.10 on supported devices with firmware version 3.0 which will be released soon as well.
