Once your Shelly device has been installed and powered up, you will need to connect it to the Shelly Cloud app. This can currently be done inside the app itself but there is another, more stable way via the Shelly Web UI.
Shelly has grown dramatically over the years globally and so has their product range. With this growth has seen more demand on the Shelly Cloud App which was originally built and designed to control just the Shelly 1. Since then, more and more device types, automations and clever new things have been added. Whilst we know there is a new Shelly Cloud App in BETA testing at the time of writing this, the current app is still operational and can have some issues in connecting new Shelly products to your account.
By connecting to the Shelly Web UI, you are connecting directly to the Shelly device via a local IP address rather than via the app which takes away any annoying glitches caused when connecting via the Shelly Cloud app.
It is always a good idea to setup your Shelly product at the location where it is going to remain. If you have multiple Access Points for your home wifi network, the Shelly will always default back to the first Access Point it connected to. If you are like us and setup your Shelly devices on a bench before installing them then make sure that is as close as possible to its final home to ensure it doesn’t stick to the wrong Access Point on your network.
