5. Next, the device will be registered by eWelink and add it to your account，it takes 1-3 minutes.
6. Name the device to complete.
7. Maybe the device is “Offline” on eWeLink, for the device needs 1 minute to connect to your router and server. When the wifi LED is on, the device is “Online”.
You can set the switch among 3 working modes: inching/interlock/self-locking mode.
1. In self-locking mode, you can turn on/off the 4 connected devices independently. For example, if you turn on CH1, connected device keeps on. If you turn off CH2, connected device keeps off.
2. In inching mode, you can turn on the connected devices for 0.25-4s. For example, you can turn on CH1 connected device for 1s, then auto-off.
3. In interlock mode, you can turn on 1 device every time, and turn off other devices at the same time. For example, if you have turned on CH2, then when you turn on CH3, CH2 will be auto-turned off at the same time.
We will introduce how to switch among the 3 modes below:
As you can see from the image, there are S5, S6, K6 and K5.
CAUTION: Please cut off the power supply before switching S5, S6, K5, K6. Whether you use DC or AC input, make sure you have unplugged the power plug every time!!! It’s very dangerous if you don’t cut off the power supply, and the new settings can not be activated.
S6 is interlock /inching&self-locking switch: Toggle to the right(0), it enters into interlock mode; Toggle to the left(1), it enters into inching &self-locking mode.
K5 is inching/self-locking switches: From left to right, there are 1, 2, 3, 4, correspondingly for channel 1 (CH1), channel 2 (CH2), channel 3 (CH3), channel 4 (CH4). Toggle the switch down (0), the corresponding channel enters into inching mode; Toggle the switch up (1), the corresponding channel enters into self-locking mode.
- Please note that if S6 is toggled to the right(0), your 4CH Pro is in interlock mode, it’s invalid to set K5.
K6 is used to set the delay time for inching mode. From left to right there are 1, 2, 3, 4, correspondingly for CH1, CH2, CH3, CH4. Toggle all switches down (0000), the inching time will delay for 4s; Toggle all switches up (1111), the inching time will delay for 0.25s.
Please refer to the delay time setting list below:
Pairing with 433MHz RF Remote：Quickly press twice one of the switches below, then press one of the ABCD buttons on your RF Remote. If paired successfully, the button will lit up in red, and the corresponding status LED will blink in green for 4 times. You can press the button to turn on or turn off the related channel.

4. Problems and Solutions
Read the detailed FAQ on Itead Smart Home Forum. If below answers can’t solve your problem, please submit a feedback on eWeLink.
1. My device has added successfully but stays “Offline”.
Answers: The newly added device need 1-2 min to connect to your router and the Internet. If it stays offline for a long time, please judge the problem by the wifi led status:
1.1. Wifi led quickly blinks one time and repeats, which means device failed to connect to the router. The reason may be you have entered wrong WiFi password or your device is too far away from the router, which causes a weak WiFi signal. The device can not be added to the 5G-wifi-router, only the 2.4G-wifi is OK. At last, make sure that your router is MAC-open.
1.2. Wifi led slowly blinks one time and repeats, which means the device has connected to router and server but failed to be added to device list. Then power on the device again, if it still not working, just add the device again.
1.3. Wifi led quickly blinks twice and repeats, this means the device has connected to the router but failed to connect to the server. Then please confirm your WiFi router works normally.
2. Why the APP can not find the device in pairing status?
Answers: That’s because of your phone’s cache. Please close the WLAN of your phone then open it after a minute. At the same time, please power off the device if you can, then power up to try again.
3. My WiFi is expired, can I connect the devices to LAN? Can my phone be directly connected to device hotspot?
Answers: Currently this product does not support LAN or directly connect to hotspot. It must connect to the WiFi router.
4. The wifi led keeps off, even if the device is powered on. Press the button but the device does not work.
Answers: The circuit may be broken, please send it back for testing. Return shipping postage and packaging will be at buyer’s expense, if the device is damaged by the buyer, and the buyer should bear extra repair cost.
