How to bind Cameras to eWeLink Support devices

Table of Contents

Sometimes instead of just controlling the devices to perform certain actions, we would also like to check the device state or the environment it is in and manage them accordingly.

Let’ s take the garage door as an example.When opening the garage door remotely, it would be more secure if we know what is going on exactly e.g the open or close of the door and the surrounding environment.

The“Bind camera with a device” feature of the eWeLink app helps to achieve this purpose. It connects the camera with devices such as a smart socket, switch, RF Bridge, smart doorbell, roller shutter,etc. Adding a camera view at the top of the device page, controlling device with real-time monitor view, saving time to switch between the app, thus improve user experience.

How to bind Camera

  1. Enter the device page, tap the camera icon at the top-right corner.
  2. Select the camera from the pop-up
  3. Complete binding.

User Scenarios

When a camera is bound to an eWeLink Support security hub, we can check the live view of camera by tapping on the push notification sent by eWeLink app. This helps us find the cause of security alerts easily.

Another useful scenario is access control. When we bind a camera to an eWeLink support access control or smart doorlock, we can verify the identity of the visitor on the device page and decide whether we should let him in or not.

Compatible cameras

Currently, this feature is only available to eWeLink support cameras, respectively  eWeLink Support IoT cameras such as Sonoff WiFi IP camera and the ‘eWeLink camera’ app.
