How to Use eWeLink?

EWeLink is an App used to control ITEAD smart home products. This post I am going to show you how to make Sonoff WiFi switch and Slampher WiFi light holder work with the App. Sonoff and Slampher are ITEAD's latest home automation products, which are being crowdfunded in Indiegogo recently. There are Android and iOS versions for eWeLink. So I will introduce them separately. 

How to use iOS eWeLink with Sonoff and Slampher?


First of all, you need to get Sonoff and Slampher installed with an appliance and E27 light bulb. As you can see, there are SET button on Sonoff/ Slampher. By long pressing it, the green indicator LED will turn fast blinking, which means the device has entered into pairing status.
Download and Registration
Download iOS eWeLink from Apple App store and install. If you havent have an account, register with your phone number, the password must be at least 8 characters. Enter the verify code you received to submit. If everything is fine you can login with this new account.
Now you need to add device to your list. Below are iOS eWeLink Instructions
1.Long press the button on Sonoff/Slampher until the green indicator LED fast blink to enter pairing status.
2.Go to phone Settings >WLAN/Wi-Fi >connect with the network begins with ITEAD-1000***, 
enter default password 12345678.
3.Go back to the App to click CONFIRMED.
4.Enter your Router SSID and password.(SSID can be number, letter, hyphen and underline; Password only number. If no password, fill in 8 random numbers )
5.Go back to phone setting> WLAN/Wi-Fi
6.Select your own wifi or cellular network to connect.
7.Return to eWeLink to name your device to complete pairing.
It shows This device has been added successfully! , this means it can be used now.
It fails when it showsThis device has been registered by other user.
When adding new devices, it takes a while to connect to server. Please wait a moment until the icon shows online.
Note: If you see the new added device is offline, please wait for a moment. If it keeps offline, please power off the device, then power it up, hopefully, it will become online.

How to use Android eWeLink with Sonoff and Slampher?


It is the same as iOS, you need to get your devices well installed. Then search eWeLink from Google Play market to download and install.
Android eWeLink Instructions
1.Open WiFi on your phone, long press SET button on Sonoff/Slampher until the indicator LED fast blink to enter pairing status.
2.Register and login your account, click + to add devices.
3.Click Start searching to search devices.
4.Select the device you want to add, and select your WiFi account and enter password (No special characters allowed ).
5.Name the device.
Registered successmeans you added it successfully. If this note doesnt appear, you may face a timeout, please add again.
Note: If you see the new added device is offline, please wait for a moment. If it keeps offline, please power off the device, then power it up, hopefully, it will become online.

Delete devices
For iOS version, enter a device, you will see an icon right after the remote button. 
For Android version, to delete a device, you need to go to the devices list, then slide the device name from right to left. You will see the delete icon, just press it to delete your device.

Manage Group
This function currently only Android eWeLink has, later ITEAD will upgrade the iOS eWeLink and enable this function.
Click the top right corner button on device list interface. Youll seeManage Group””Exit Account””Exit e-Welink. Click Manage Group to add or delete group. After adding group, you can long press to select the device and move it under your group. If you delete a group, the devices belong to this group will still exist.

Add Timing Schedules
You can set maximum 8 timing schedules for each device. Both single timing and repeat timing are supported. We can set turn on timing schedule so that our device will auto-turn on at a preset time, or you can set turn off timing schedule.
Enter into our device, click setting icon to set the date and time.

Share Devices
Enter the device you want to share, click shareicon then enter the Phone number (this phone No. should register and login first, stay online) you want to share with. Then he/she will receive an invitation message, by accepting the invitation, he/she will have the authority to control the device you share. Only the owner of the devices has right to share devices.

So this is all about how to use eWeLink to work with Sonoff and Slampher. One thing must be sure, the App will be upgraded in the near future. Thus, eWeLink will have more functions and can control more devices. If you are interested to learn more about Sonoff and Slampher, search them on Indiegogo and you will get more information there. You can learn more about the installation, pairing with 433Mhz RF remote or others from another blog.

  1. I cannot register for ewelink app because it never sends the verification code to the phone.

  2. The problem solved. I managed to get the app registered thanks to developers of the app. They quickly replied to my problem and Im really happy for their service.

    Heres the trick. When the ewelink app ask to enter verification code, You have click on "send"button to get the code. When you get the code on your mobile phone, you have to enter it there and again click on the send button along with your desired password. Thats it.

  3. How much customization can be done in this app? I will have up to 20 devices to control from the display with the following constraints. Device icons would need to be similar to the letter "Y", but oriented "north", "east", "south" or "west" (that is up, right, down, left) as well as have a state indication, preferably red or green for on or off. Finally, I have some Boolean equations (ANDs and ORs of the states of about 10 other devices) that will determine the state of about 8 additional devices that also respond to the same wifi control signals, but are not controlled by normal display touch. However indicating the state of each of those eight additional devices on the Android display would be a good thing. I plan on using a 7-inch (or so) Android tablet connected via WiFi to these devices: http://www.banggood.com/USB-5V-Or-DC-7V-32V-DIY-Four-Channel-Jog-Inching-Self-locking-WIFI-Wireless-Smart-Home-Switch-p-1065544.html?currency=USD&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=cpc_elc&utm_campaign=Ele-DPA-en-NF-M-p180&utm_content=zia

    The fine lines forming a figure 8 with overlay-ed loops is my layout design The devices will control track turnouts (the Y's mentioned above) and how voltage will be applied to the rails.

  8. If it says the other user does not exist, try setting up an account on the other device so you can send devices to it to control.
