Do the WeMo minis need the app to run? They seem to shut down when I shut down the phone!!

Are the WeMo minis *required* to be connected to the app all the time? When I close my phone or tablet, the minis go back into blinking mode. My whole Alexa system is on a 5G network, and I don't use the 2.4G network for anything, other than setting up the WeMo minis. But I thought they would still work once I shut down the app/tablet/phone.

I think this is pretty useless for me if I have to have the mobile device on all the time, I want to use them with Alexa, which works fine without the app, and on the 5G network.

No, they don’t need the app once they’re set up. But it sounds like you’ve paired the devices to your phone’s mobile hotspot rather than your home network.
