Phone calls for managing 2Smart Cloud devices: detailed instructions
You can control any 2Smart Cloud smart device using a phone call. This option is convenient in a variety of situations:

  • you need to remotely turn on the device while in an area with unstable mobile Internet coverage or when megabytes have run out on the tariff;
  • a family member with a simple push-button phone who is unable to use the 2 Smart Cloud smartphone app needs access to device management;
  • you need temporary access to device management (for example, lighting on the site) for workers;
  • you need the simplest voice control of the device — after linking the number and adding it to contacts, just say the command “Call the contact light”, and your assistant (Google, Siri) will dial the desired phone, and the light will turn on.

Please note! This way of managing smart devices is completely free. Minutes will not be charged according to the tariff of your mobile operator — the call is automatically reset after one ring tone.

The instructions below will help you introduce the necessary settings to turn on/off the device and control it remotely using a phone call.

How to add additional numbers from which you will make calls


You can link multiple phone numbers and control your devices from any of them. This option is convenient in a variety of situations:

  • if you have several numbers, you can connect them all and not think about which SIM card to dial from when making a call;
  • you can share access to device management with family members who do not want or cannot use the mobile app (for example, if they use a simple push-button phone);
  • you can grant device control access via phone to a work crew, courier, or neighbor who looks after your property while you're on vacation, and then you can simply remove the number from the list and revoke access.

To add a new phone number to manage go through the following steps:

1. Go to the “Settings" screen of the 2Smart Cloud application and select "Phone call control".

Using a phone call to turn on and manage devices is only one of the methods available to 2Smart Cloud users. Additionally, you can control the device using Siri or Google Assistant voice commands, a Telegram bot, or an iPhone shortcut. Likewise, the application's sharing function enables you to instantly grant permanent or temporary access to your devices' management.
