To connect to your Shelly 1L, connect your device to the Wi-Fi network with a name(SSID) like shelly1l - 84CCA87D7CDC. Use the universal IP address for all Shelly devices - 192.168.33.1 to access your device's Web Interface, where you can set a Wi-fi network for the Shelly 1L to connect to. Once done, through the app on your mobile device or through home.shelly.cloud, you can go into the Settings and search for Device information. There you will find the Device IP and be taken to the Web Interface of Shelly 1L.

General - Home page

In the web interface, you will see three icons at the top of the screen, including one for Wi-Fi and Cloud connection, as well as an icon indicating the state of the web interface(passwords protected or not). Here is what the different status colors mean:

  • Wi-Fi icon:

    • Red: Wi-Fi connection is disabled.

    • White: Wi-Fi connection is enabled, but not established.

    • Green: Device is connected to Wi-Fi.

  • Cloud icon:

    • Red: Connection to Shelly Cloud is disabled.

    • Green: Device is connected to Shelly Cloud.

  • Lock icon:

    • Red: The web interface of your device is not password protected.

    • Green: The web interface of your device is password protected.

In the home page of the Web Interface, you will see a power button on the right side of your screen, which you can use to turn the switch on and off. In the middle is a button “CLICK TO SET”. When you click on the text you will be taken to the POWER CONSUMPTION setting.

  • Choose time interval: time, sunrise, or sunset.

  • Set the time for the specified day(s):

This function requires a working connection to the Internet, so the device can synchronize the time. In this setting you can also view, delete and edit your existing schedules.

Internet & Security

WI-FI MODE - CLIENT

In this setting, you can connect your Shelly 1L to your home network by selecting a Wi-Fi network and typing in its password. Enable Wi-Fi Client only, or both Wi-Fi Client and Wi-Fi Client Back-up. If both are enabled, and the Shelly device disconnects from the first network, it will connect to the other one. When connecting your device to your home network, you can also set a static IP address for your device to acccess it at.

WIFI CLIENT - AP ROAMING

Enabling this setting will make it so the device periodically scans for a better access point when the RSSI signal strength value is below the one you have chosen from the drop-down menu.

Access point

This setting is responsible for the lock icon in the home page of the web interface and when it’s enabled the icon will be green and the lock will be closed.

SNTP SERVER

SNTP synchronizes your device's system time with a server that has already been synchronized by another source. There is already a set server, which is the default one - http://time.google.com, however if there are any problems, you can easily change it and enter a new one in the text box. Changing this setting will reboot the device.

ADVANCED - DEVELOPER SETTINGS

In this setting, you can enable/disable Cross-Origin Resource Sharing, CoIoT and MQTT. If you enable CoIoT, a text box will appear, where you can type in the CoIoT peer. There you can enter mcast for multicast or ip:port for unicast. A device is required when the CoIoT peer is changed.

You can also enable MQTT, but actions via Cloud connection will be disabled.
