    Tap 'add' in scene tap CANNOT find shared device by others.

    Please note that shared devices cannot be used for creating scenes at the moment.

    Only the device owner has the capability to do that.

    Can you provide specific development schedules and milestones?
    I currently need this feature desperately, and I am willing to subscribe and pay.
    Or tell me that when I don’t need to unlock through the screen, Siri can use a third-party app to control shared device on or off.

    First thing first, you don't need to unlock the screen to run Siri shortcut to control eWeLink devices now. No need to change. 

    Sorry, but we don't plan to allow shared users to use Siri control at the moment.

    Therefore, there is no schedule for it, either.

    When a device can be shared and used, we can use the Siri shortcut to turn the sharing device on or off, which is a very important feature.
    Since you can’t provide a specific schedule. can you provide us that when I don’t need to unlock through the screen, Siri can use a third-party app to control shared device on or off?

    For the device owner, no need to unlock the screen to control devices via Siri shortcut. 

    Sorry but I don't understand what you mean by using a third-party app to control shared devices via Siri?

    The Siri control here relies on the eWeLink app to be set up and running which means eWeLink app is REQUIRED for Siri control.

    Since you say "Sorry, but we don't plan to allow shared users to use Siri control at the moment."

    I am using Google Home to add eWeLink device which is shared to me by others.
    And then, using Google Assistant to bridge Siri but need to unlock through the screen.
    It's very inconvenient.

    If you can bypass the limit of the eWeLink app by using Google Home with Siri, then it is good for you. In this case, the requirement to unlock the screen has nothing to do with eWeLink, since the request was done through Google Home. Please consult Google Home if they will stop requiring unlocking the screen. 

    If you create a Siri shortcut on your own devices via the eWeLink app directly, then there is no need to unlock the screen.

    I know that create a Siri shortcut on my own devices via the eWeLink app directly, then there is no need to unlock the screen. But the eWeLink device is not my own. So, your answer CANNOT solve my problem. I am willing to pay the money please face up to this problem.

    Now I understand your request. It will be forwarded to our product managers for consideration. 

    Thanks for letting us know.

    When can we expect Siri control with shared devices? This is a deal breaker for me. I need to automate all my house, but if my wife and my children can not use Siri to activate all the devices, it makes imposible for me to do it.
