Issue with my rules

I had to reset my link and 5 bulbs to factory and reinstall because my rules dissapeared after the app update and the app wouldn't let me create new ones. It kept saying "rule cannot be saved, having trouble saving this rule now. Please check the status of all your wemo devices." So I reset my link to factory settings and reset my bulbs. They now toggle on and off just fine from the app, and I am able to group the bulbs to my liking just fine. But when i try to create a rule, I still get the same message.

I thought resetting the link to factory settings clears all pre-existing rules. And would enable me to create new ones, but this is not the case. Is it because they are still stored in the belkin cloud somewhere? How can I fix this?

Re: Issue with my rules

I had the same problem. No matter what I tried it didn't help. 24 hours later it started working again on its own. I suspect its a server problem.

Hi! As far as I know, the rules are not stored on the WEMO cloud. Those are saved on the the WEMO device itself and the app also stores a copy of the rules. I suggest that you try doing the following: 


* Force close the app 

* Uninstall/reinstall


Installing the app on another handheld device will help in isolating the challenge you've encountered. I would also suggest doing another factory reset

Re: Issue with my rules

I've had the exact same problem. Did you figure it out? I can't delete old rules. Factory reset all four devices. Force closed app. Cleared cache and data. Uninstalled. Reinstalled app. Added all four devices back. Can toggle on and off but can't delete rules after factory reset. Help!?!

Re: Issue with my rules

Same issue here too. Been fine for years. Now can't save rules. Something changed somewhere but no idea what it is.

Re: Issue with my rules

Delete all your long-press rules, then create the new rule you want. Finally, recreate the long-press rules. This should allow the save. 


I'm not the originator of this workaround, but it worked for me.
