Support for Adding Matter Bridge
Create Scenes with Matter Lights
Customize Your Insight Sections
eWeLink app V5.3 enhances user experience by allowing customization of Insight sections. Previously, the sections in Insight were fixed, but now users can choose which sections to display and arrange them. Gone are the days of a one-size-fits-all approach; you can now select and organize sections to suit your unique needs. Insight includes five sections:
● Home Ambience: Connects to temperature and humidity devices for real-time monitoring.
● Live Video: Adds security cameras to monitor the home environment in real-time, enabling monitoring of up to three different cameras.
● Devices On: Provides a clear overview of which devices are currently on, such as switches, plugs, air conditioners, fans, lights, etc.
● Energy Dashboard: Track and manage the energy usage of devices, with options to view consumption by group, weekly, and monthly.
● Presence Simulation: Randomly turns on/off devices like lights to simulate presence at home, enhancing security.

Q: What is Matter Bridge and Why is it Needed?
A: A Matter bridge is a device or software solution that connects non-Matter devices (such as those using Zigbee, Z-Wave, or other IoT protocols) to a Matter network. The bridge extends the connectivity of non-Matter devices, allowing them to operate within a Matter fabric. This means that devices that were previously incompatible can now function seamlessly alongside Matter devices. While some end devices could technically be upgraded to support Matter, using a bridge provides a simpler, more stable, and better user experience.
Q: What’s the Difference Between Matter Hub and Matter Bridge?
A: A Matter Hub acts as a central point of control for Matter-enabled devices within a smart home ecosystem. It facilitates communication, control, and coordination among various devices. A Matter Bridge serves as a connector between Matter-enabled devices and those that don’t support the Matter protocol. The Matter bridge allows for the integration of older or non-compliant devices into a Matter-based smart home ecosystem, ensuring that users can continue to use their existing devices without needing to replace them for compatibility reasons.
