eWeLink Add-on User Guide

Welcome to use eWeLink official Add-on

You can use Home Assistant card to manage devices.

Note: Devices connected through Home Assistant REST API and WebSocket API can only be mapped as entities instead of devices, which makes it impossible to directly control devices via Home Assistant’s Scene and Automation.

To solve this problem, you need to enable the Advanced Mode (Lovelace Console > Profile > Advanced Mode).

To use eWeLink Support devices in Automation, you need to first create Scene that contains your devices, and then select Activate Scenario in Action > Action Type of Automation.

You can open eWeLink Smart Home WebUI to edit device name, enable/disable devices, and upgrade firmware.
Apart from basic configuration, you can modify the following features:

Power on state -

By setting power on state, your device will automatically be set to ON, OFF or Last Sate status when power is on again.
On - Turn on the device.
Off - Turn off the device.
Last State - your device will be in the same state as it is before power outrage.


When inching mode is enabled, the device will be programmed to turn off automatically after a set period (0.5 - 3600 seconds), no matter if you turn it on by voice, in app, by physical button, with schedules, scenes, or any other possible way.

There are many scenarios inching can make your life easier. Heaters, TV, and other devices that are often turned on but easily forgotten to turn off can save energy by utilizing inching. For example, you can enable inching for the corridor lights and set the inching time to three minutes. In this way, the lights will be automatically turned off every time it’s on for three minutes.

Tip: You can set inching for each channel of multi-channel device.


If you want only one channel of a device can be turned on at a time, the interlock feature makes one channel mutually dependent on the other channels. When a two-gang device is connected to a garage door motor respectively to pull up and let down the gate, you wouldn’t like to see both actions being done, which certainly will burn your motor. Such scenarios are where interlock mode is required.

Note: When interlock is enabled, it may affects the timing, scene and other functions.
