I've updated firmware to 2.7.0
eWeLink on my android is still on version 3.5.1 (from july 16th 2018) and don't have this option. I've uninstalled and installed from zero, but the version on my playstore is still 3.5.1
I'll wait for the app update on the playstore, I've never tried aptoide.com, I prefeer to wait the new version on the Android PlayStore ( hope it arrives quickly ;) )
All your messages were very useful, thanks to everyone
this has also worked for me and the R2 (firmware 2.7.0) has now the power on state available. It also changes the layout and menu structure of the switches slightly. The wrong symbol ° has now been replaced with the correct unit kWh, so this is all fixed too.
Seems like this version should be on the official app store!
No option for me :(
My app in on version 3.5.1.
That is great news, I am taking out the POW R2s I have out of their boxes and trying now. I hope I can see the update.
I have newest ewelink 3.5.1 from play store:
you have had the same problem as me, even if you update the POW R.2, new options do not appear.
The solution is easy. You must also update the eWeLink app on your device.
problem solved with the 2.7.0 update.
Do not forget to also update the app so that the power state options appear and can be used.
Sonoff POW R2 updated to 2.7.0. Still no such option.
Here you can see the version and the power on state
