Dear Jewel Deng
Thanks for your reply
Maybe can let user change the setting ? The unlock step really bother me.
How can I let shared accounts add scenes to their Siri
Tap 'add' in scene tap CANNOT find shared device by others.
I will forward your suggestion for our tech team's consideration.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Please note that it is required to unlock your iPhone to control eWeLink devices via Siri from
the new version out of the concerns of privacy and security. For some users who haven't
taught Siri their voices, their Siri can be awakened by anyone, which will pose a security
Hello after updating my IOS version to 16.3.1 I have lost the ability to control my ew-link devices with siri. I have deleted and set up the manual scene in a attempt to resolve this issue, adding it to siri. The tab works via the shortcut app when pressing the icon, but if you try via siri it says that “there has been a problem, try again later”
This answer is different if the manual scene is deleted, so i believe it not to he down to me setting the scene incorrectly or a problem with siri, as I believe it attempts to perform the task but fails when accessing the ewlink app.
