♨ eWeLink CAST Updates: Version 2.5 - NSPanel Pro supported

Hey, guys,
The CAST App for Android tablet is here eWeLink CAST App is available!, please have a try and let us know how’s going.

I subscribed to the ewelink cast plan, and downloaded the app cast, but I don’t understand how to connect to the program? I can’t get past the QR code.

hi, please check here: eWeLink CAST App Guide

thanks for the hint. but here’s the problem. I don’t need a tablet for my life and it’s not advisable to buy it only for cast. I am trying to install app ewelink cast on my phone. I want to try using cast in this way, since it’s also not very convenient through the browser. The idea itself is very good, much more convenient than through the ewelink app. but the downside is that everything is done through the browser. The development of the app ewelink cast is another big plus, but it is a minus that it is aimed primarily at the tablet. It would be nice if they took into account the option for smartphones. Actually, due to the fact that I use the phone, I can not enter the program. due to the difference in the display between the phone and the tablet, there is no link on the screen to enter your data, and I did not understand how to use the qr code. ewelink version is latest.

Hi, I’m sorry that it is not adapted to the mobile phones for the time being, the QR code may not be fully displayed on the mobile phones, we will consider adaptation and optimization.

For scanning the QR code to log in, it requires the eWeLink App version to be higher than 4.33. The eWeLink App V4.33 has been submitted to Google Play Store. Please note that the update may not be immediately visible to everyone at this point, as Google releases the update gradually. iOS users can expect to access the update by the end of June.

I hope the [ewelink cast app] can have settings to prevent accidental touches (for example, requiring a confirmation button to be pressed before operating after a standby period of more than 3 minutes). I also hope it can force the display of the cast app interface and prohibit users from exiting the app or logging out of their accounts (requiring a password). This would be useful for Android tablets or Android TVs used as fixed control panels.

Thank you.

Is there any way to edit tempurature/humidité auto mode on webcast (cast tablet)

Haven’t plan for this, the CAST is designed for simple control cases.

Please add the ability to scale the device window itself in the Ewelink cast app. At the moment, everything on the tablet is displayed too large and in order to find the desired device, you need to scroll up or down a lot. Too few devices fit in the viewing window.

May i know the model of the table?

xiaomi pad 5
too much free space at the top and sides. It could be used for more devices displayed. I repeat. Screen scaling (decrease) to display more tiles, so as not to scroll up and down for a long time, would be very useful !!!

This is how my devices are displayed on the phone from the browser and it is much more convenient than in the app cast.

Noted, discussing with our dev-team.

It would be nice in Cast App if we could rodate the screen, choosing the default from landscape or portrait.

Hey Julhio, nice to see you in this discussion.
The current architecture of the CAST is designed for horizontal display, we do have received some similar requests for vertical display recently, noted that and need some time to evaluate with the engineering team, let you know if we have a plan or concern.

Additionally, would you please let me know the model of your tablet?

Hi @yitie.

I liked the Cast App, it looks more interesting than use the IP address, but with only horaizontal is not practical to use on cellphone or even on my tablet.

My tablet is a Samsung Tab S6 Lite.
If they do the portrait display, let me know that I will test it and send you the feedback.

Copy, still evaluating.

BTW, we have release the iPad version of CAST App for Apple users last Friday.

Necessary improvements for app cast. I use a tablet in combination with app ewelink and macroDroid to announce events in ewelink by receiving push notifications. But I encountered the problem of a long delay in receiving notifications in ewelink. I disabled the screen lock on the tablet, granted all possible permissions to ewelink, removed all battery restrictions on the tablet, but this did not help. As soon as the tablet goes into sleep mode, notifications stop coming. I see the only way out. In app cast, which I also use, make the following settings: 1. Be able to independently set the time to turn on the screensaver - 5 minutes is too much. The battery is running low. 2. Be able to install screensavers yourself. I personally need it as dark as possible, for less battery drain, because… It is not possible to keep the tablet constantly connected to the charger. This and that theme that we have now illuminates the room too much and interferes with sleep. This is very important to me!!! Another question. When can we expect the addition of multi-channel zb devices?
And you also need a page refresh button, since device tiles are not always updated - they freeze. And you have to close and re-open the program to refresh the page.
