Application guide - Android


Recommended Posts


Shelly Cloud is a home automation app for managing and controlling Shelly home automation devices. 

The App offers the possibility to control all Shelly devices remotely from any internet connection by using the cloud option. There is also an option not to connect your devices to the internet with local control mode. Devices do not need to be connected to the cloud or to send data there. 

A Shelly Cloud App user account is required to access, include, and control Shelly devices through the application.

Shelly devices are compatible with other most widely accepted both local and cloud based home automation platforms. Having a Shelly user account is necessary to include your Shelly devices to home automation platforms like Amazon Alexa or Google Home. See further details at https://shelly.cloud/support/compatibility/.

Shelly Cloud allows you to create scenes for automatic control of devices at predefined hours or based on other parameters like temperature, humidity, light, etc. (with upcoming add-ons or available sensors on shelly.cloud). Shelly Cloud allows easy control and monitoring using a mobile phone, tablet, or PC. One Shelly Device can be grouped with other devices in the application. It can also be set to trigger actions on other Shelly devices, run schedules, scenes, and web hooks.

The first time you load the Shelly Cloud mobile app, you have to create an account which can manage all your Shelly devices. You need to use an actual e-mail because that e-mail will be used in case of а forgotten password!

Forgotten Password

In case you forget or lose your password, click the Forgotten password link on the login screen and enter the e-mail used in your registration. You will receive an e-mail with а link to а page where you can reset your password. The link is unique and can be used only once.

First steps

Once you login, you will be taken to the default home page Rooms. Click the ADD button to add your first room. Set a room name, select an image for the room or upload your own. Then, you will be taken to the page of the room you just created, where you are going to add and use your Shelly devices. Click the ADD button to add a device to this room. Follow the steps below to add your device.

Device inclusion

Step 1

When the installation of your Shelly Device is done and the power is turned on, Shelly will create its own Wi-Fi Access Point (AP).

Step 2

Make sure the Location and Local Network for the Shelly Cloud app are enabled in your phone settings.

Please keep in mind that the inclusion process is different for iOS and Android devices.

Android inclusion

Select Add device from the menu button  on the top right of your Shelly Cloud App. Select your home network from the dropdown list and enter its password.

Select the method via which you want to add your device:

  • Wifi: You will see listed all of the available devices. Choose your Shelly Device from the list and click Yes when asked for inclusion. A message will pop up asking for your permission to connect to your Shelly Device's AP address (e.g. ShellyPro3-f008d1d8bd68). Click the Yes button.

  • Bluetooth: Select a device to add to your Wi-Fi network via Bluetooth.

  • Barcode Scan: Scan the barcode from the device box.

Step 3

Once this process is completed, approximately 10 seconds later, a pop up button will appear on the top of the page with ADD DISCOVERED DEVICES on the home screen of the Shelly Cloud App. Click the ADD DISCOVERED DEVICES button and find your Shelly device in the list. If you do not see it, try again by clicking the SCAN button.

Step 4 

You can choose which available device from the list to include. If a newer firmware update is available, the app will first let you update and then add the device. Click the ADD DEVICE button to move to the next step of the inclusion process.

Step 5

Enter a name for the device in the “device name” field. Select a room which the device will be added to. For easy recognition of the device select an image from the list of existing ones or upload your own. Click the DONE button.

Step 6

If you’d like to connect your device to the cloud and control it remotely, click Yes. In case you want to control your devices only locally, click No.
