Control SONOFF DIY Mode devices on LAN or log in to eWeLink account to control all eWeLink Support devices

Log in to the Home Assistant Lovelace console (usually the URL is http://homeassistant.local:8123/ ), click Supervisor at the sidebar to open the HassOS dashboard, then click the eWeLink Smart Home card to enter the add-on information page. Click OPEN WEB UI, the eWeLink Smart Home Web UI page will list all DIY devices on LAN searched by mDNS. You can also click the Login button in the upper left corner and log in to the eWeLink account to connect all eWeLink Support devices.

Setup Scene, Automation to control eWeLink Support devices

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 a Scene that contains your devices, and then select Activate Scenario in Action > Action Type of Automation.
