Before setting up the widgets, please check if you had already updated your app to 4.2.9(3) via TestFlight. After updating the app to 4.2.9(3), you will see the widget option in the profile of the app.


Adding the widgets in the App


Firstly, we need to set up the widget on the SwitchBot app.

1- Go to the profile page and tap Widget Settings

2- Select the device that you want to control into the widget column (currently, only the SwitchBot Bot, Plug, Scene can be added here)




Then, we need to go to the side screen and set up the widget.

1- Swipe left to go to the side screen

2- Tap Edit, then tap Customize

3- Select SwitchBot Devices and SwitchBot Scenes and tap Done

4- Then you should be able to access the devices you added to the widget




Adding the Meter widget on the home screen


Currently, only the SwitchBot Meter can be added to the home screen widget.

1- Long press the anyplace on the home screen until the apps start to waggle

2- Tap the + icon on the top left

3- Swipe down to find the SwitchBot



4- Choose SwitchBot and you will find two options of the widget, small size, and medium-size

5- Choose the one that you prefer and tap "Add Widget"



6- When it is added to the home screen, choose the device that you would like to be displayed

7- Return to the home screen and there you go




Currently, the widget function on the iOS system is still in beta, the temperature displays in Celsius in default but the uint is in Fahrenheit. The dev team is working on fixing this.

Any suggestion about how to optimize this would be appreciated. Thank you for your interest and wish you enjoy the new update!
