Ewelink android vs ihost.local

Why ihost can’t be controlled, configured in ewelink app?
Why no options in ihost.local to receive notifications (exp for door sensors) on phone, laptop,…?

Because the eWeLink CUBE is a localized system, it does not transfer any data to the eWeLink Cloud, so it has no connection to the eWeLink app.

iHost is positioned to allow users to connect and manage devices locally, and you can see that we are working hard to make it more compatible with different brands of zigbee devices - as a result, we cannot guarantee that these connected devices will be compatible with the eWeLink cloud and the eWeLink app.

Thank you for answer, and sure that you work hard, bon courage !!
Its very great that no cloud connection and ihost is a super and very nice idea and product.
I am not a développer, but i think there is a way, to make ihost sending notifications (its important i think, smarthome-security),
And to create android/iphone based application (iWelink) working as casting page.
In web browser ihost.local is not pratique, confusing.
I know that needs a lot of work, and hope that it will be done.

Thank you!


You can try using ihost’s Matter bridge feature. It connects ihost to apple home, Alexa, google home and SmartThins matter networks - so you can receive notifications from ihost on those apps

Hello, what is the model number of the device that shows offline?

Well… it doesn’t. Connections are crippled and unstable, if possible at all.
