The 2Smart Cloud mobile app’s main screen is titled “Favorites.” You can pin frequently used widgets here to have quick access to your smart device’s primary functions. In this tutorial, we will show you how to use your favorite widgets in a mobile app.

What widgets you can add to favorites and how to do it

Adding widgets to Favorites has no restrictions — this feature is available for each widget on any 2Smart Cloud smart device. These can be basic widgets for controlling device functions and service widgets for notification settings, firmware updates, etc.

To add a widget to favorites, simply click on the icon to the left of its title. The icon will turn green, and the widget will appear on the home screen — you can control the device’s corresponding function immediately after launching the application, without having to navigate to the device’s control window.

How to group favorite widgets

You can create groups of favorite widgets for easy sorting on the home screen. The groups will be displayed as separate tabs. The grouping logic can be anything — you can create separate groups for each device or different devices with similar functionality (for example, “Lighting”, “Climate”, etc.).

  1. To create a new group, go to the Settings screen and select “Groups with favorites”.

How to rename a widget in Favorites

If the selected widgets belong to several different devices, it makes sense to change the titles of some of them. This possibility will help distinguish similar widgets — for example, widgets for turning on/off the device.

  1. To rename the widget, click on the edit icon on the Favorites screen.
