eWeLink App V4.29 (Jan. 9, 2023)
View the scene list by home
We originally displayed all our scenes directly on the Auto Scenes and Manual Scenes pages. While scenes by home were clearly labeled, users with a large number of scenes were struggling to locate scenes in a timely manner. Now you can view the scene list by home in this new version.
