Shelly Plus 2PM - Cover Mode

Status and Control

From left to right across the status and control bar, you see the Device image, name, and up/down button to control the cover. Directly below the status and control bar is the current cover position as a percentage, and the current Device power in watts.


Move the slider left or right to adjust the cover position to your preference, and observe the position percentage on the right-hand side of the slider. Sliding the button to the left reduces the position percentage, and sliding the button to the right increases the position percentage. You may also increase/decrease the cover position percentage by using the up/down buttons in the control and status bar at the top of the page. Once you click the up/down button, the button will appear as a pause button. Press this pause button to stop cover movement at your desired position.

Press the ☆ Save button (to the right of the slider) to save your favorite positions. These will appear under the Saved Positions header on the same page, located below the slider.

Saved Positions

Your favorite positions will be saved here. Click the trash icon to delete the saved position.


This tab only appears for Shelly Devices with power metering (PM) capabilities.

Observe a chart with the Shelly Device consumption displayed in watt-hours (Wh). Above the consumption chart, you can select the time interval and the date from which you want data to be shown. Below the consumption chart you have the option to download the consumption data by clicking the DOWNLOAD button. This downloads a table of your Shelly Device consumption data.

If a firmware update is available, then you will observe a "Firmware Update Available" text below the Consumption chart. Click the UPDATE button to update your Shelly Device firmware.

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

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

    • Time: Click up/down button, or type in a number, to set a time in hours and minutes.

    • Sunset/Sunrise: The Shelly device may turn on/off automatically at sunrise/sunset, or at a specified time before or after sunrise/sunset. Click up/down button, or type in a number, to set a time in hours and minutes.

  • Set the action as on/off.

This function requires a working connection to the Internet.

Web Hooks

    • Cover closed

    • Cover opening

    • Cover closing

  • Add URLs: Input URL to send the Shelly device a command. You may add up to 5 URLs per web hook, which will be executed one after the other.



Register Shelly Device to connect to up to 2 different Wi-Fi networks. Either input or select the Wi-Fi network. Can select an open network, and also set a static IP address. Enable Wi-Fi 1, or Wi-Fi 2, or both at the same time. If both Wi-Fi 1 and Wi-Fi 2 are enabled, and Shelly Device disconnects from one of the networks, it will connect to the other.

Access Point

Enable to configure Shelly Device to create a Wi-Fi AP and you can connect to its network. Can also set it to be an open network.


Enable to connect Shelly Device to its cloud. This allows you to control it remotely, and receive notifications and updates about your devices.


Enable to allow Bluetooth communication.


Enable to configure Shelly Device to execute actions via MQTT.

Favorite Positions

Type in the cover position you want to save, or click the target icon to the right of the text box to set the cover position to 100%, and press the SAVE button. This newly saved cover position will appear under the Saved Positions header on the Status and Control tab of the device.


With power metering capabilities, the Shelly Device precisely monitors your appliances power consumption.

Max Power Protection

Configure Shelly Device to turn off when power consumption reaches a set value in watts (W). Please note the power range you can set is 0 W - 4480 W.

Max Voltage Protection

Configure Shelly Device to turn off when voltage reaches a set value in volts (V). Please note the max voltage you can set is 280 V.

Max Current Protection

Configure Shelly Device to turn off when the current reaches a set value in amperes (A). Please note the max current you can set is 10 A.

Obstacle Detection

If an obstacle is present, the cover movement will be stopped and, if configured so in the settings, reversed until the endpoint is reached. Obstacle detection can be enabled or disabled for only one of the directions or for both. You can input the Max power threshold for the cover. Press the SAVE button to ensure your new settings are saved and applied to your Shelly Device.

Safety Switch

This function works only if the Input Type is set to Button and Control Button Mode is set to Single. Input 1 controls the cover movement, and input 2 acts as a safety switch. From the options below, you can choose how this function works.

  • The checkboxes under “Moving direction” allow the safety switch to be configured to stop the cover movement while opening, while closing, or moving in either direction.

  • If the Stop checkbox under “Action” is checked, engaging the safety button will stop the cover movement until the safety switch is disengaged or until a command is sent by the physical button or the mobile application. If the Reverse checkbox under “Allowed move” is checked, the movement is resumed in the opposite direction until the end position is reached.

  • If the Reverse checkbox under “Action” is checked, engaging the safety button will stop and immediately reverse the movement until the end position is reached. This option requires Reverse movement to be allowed under “Allowed move”.

Application Settings

Pin Lock

Enable and set a device pin lock.

Sync Name

Keep the device name in sync with the name given in the app

Exclude From Event Log

Do not show event log reports for this device in the app.

Consumption Calculation

If your device has power metering capabilities, this application settings is available. Enable/disable exclusion of device from total room/account consumption.


Input an email and share control of the Device with another Shelly Cloud user. The other user will only have access to the Device's power button (on/off), and be able to see the Device Information. The other user cannot see the other device settings.


Device Profile

Set the desired use of your Shelly Device. The current guide section describes Shelly Device settings when the device profile is set to cover. If you’d like to use Shelly Device as a switch (on/off), then please select “switch” and see the “Switch mode” section of this guide. Please note that changes to the device profile will restart the device and clear all existing schedules and webhooks.

Input type

These settings define the way Shelly Device interprets the attached physical button(s) or switch(es). The options are Button or Switch.

Control Button Mode

As a cover controller Shelly Device can work in 3 modes: Single, Dual or Detached.

  • Single:
    If the input is configured as a Button in the Device settings, each button press cycles open, stop, close, stop…
    If the input is configured as a Switch, each switch toggle cycles open, stop, close, stop…

  • Dual:
    If the inputs are configured as buttons:

    • Pressing a button when the cover is static, moves the cover in the corresponding direction until the endpoint is reached.

    • Pressing the button for the same direction while the cover is moving, stops the cover.

    • Pressing the button for the opposite direction, while the cover is moving, reverses the cover movement until the endpoint is reached.

    If the inputs are configured as switches in dual input mode:

    • Turning a switch on moves the cover in the corresponding direction until an endpoint is reached.

    • Turning the switch off stops the cover movement.

    • If both switches are turned on, Shelly Pro 2PM will respect the last engaged switch. Turning off the last engaged switch stops the cover movement, even if the other switch is still on. To move the cover in the opposite direction, the other switch has to be turned off and on again.

  • Detached: Shelly Plus 2PM can be controlled through its WebUI and the App only. Even if buttons or switches are connected to the Device, they will not be allowed to control the cover movement in detached mode.
