eWeLink has send out an e-mail newsletter today (September 28th, 2020) with information about what has changed in eWeLink 4.5 and what their expectations for eWeLink 4.6 are. Also the updated Sonoff Basic R2, IFTTT and the Woolley SA-001 are featured in this newsletter.
Not subscribed to the e-mail newsletter yet? You can do it within the eWeLink app. You can read how to do that in this KB article: Does eWeLink have a newsletter? How can I subscribe to the eWeLink Newsletter?
Want to know the exact changelog of eWeLink 4.5.1? Have a look at our App releases pages.
Below is the most important content of the newsletter we tried to recreate here. We left out the recommended products section and Sonoff discount code. Be aware that the document at the link with the eWeLink tip includes an example with the Sonoff Micro but the Sonoff Micro is still not supported on IFTTT. So it actually is a bad example.
WHAT’S NEW IN v4.5.
GOOGLE APP FLIP LINKING
The new version has incorporated the google app flip linking technology. It now allows users to link with Google without entering login email or password.
BULK TIMER EDIT
Daylight saving is coming to an end. For users with multiple timers, it used to be a pain to adjust all the timers one by one. Not any more. With bulk timer edit, you may edit as many timers as you want with one change.
We are now working around the clock for the release of V4.6 which would include the following new features.
Change WiFi info
ON/OFF of TH devices as trigger
Support for Arabic & Hebrew
NEW EWELINK SUPPORT PRODUCT
SONOFF launched an upgraded version of BASICR2/RFR2, with ETL certification. It holds smart features with the previous BASICR2/RFR2, but more durable, safer and better use experience. It has great electrical insulation, moisture and dust-resistance, electric shock-resistance. You want safety, performance and durability? You got. You don’t want an expensive price? It has the same price with BASICR2/RFR2.
