I have two new wemo dimmers, both with latest firmware, will not respond to the nest rule - i am using iphones with the latest IOS.
I have tried all the suggstions in this thread with the exception of deleting the cache - that seems to be an option only available in android.
Any ideas on how to resolve this?

Despite the claims from Belkin https://www.belkin.com/us/resource-center/wemo/works-with-nest/ the wemo will not turn on and off with the nest auto away.
I contacted Belkin tech support - the following is a reply from one of their Engineers.
"I wanted to follow up on the ticket that is open under your name. I understand you are unable to get the Wemo to work with your Nest Home. This can be attributed to the fact that Belkin discontinued the feature after Nest renamed the Auto Away feature with the Eco feature"
Here is the Nest web site, from almost two years ago, where Nest advised their developers of the changes to they could make changes to their products.
Belkin has no plans to fix this, but continues to make false claims on their web site.
Other than that, the wemo dimmers work as advertised.

Here is my reply from Wemo “cares”. I have made a complaint with Nest and am ready to pursue a complaint with Industry Canada regarding false advertising

I wanted to follow up on the ticket that is open under your name. I understand you are unable to get the Wemo to work with your Nest Home. This can be attributed to the fact that Belkin discontinued the feature after Nest renamed the Auto Away feature with the Eco feature. With this, I would suggest trying IFTTT. It is a free app that allows you to make your devices work together. Check out https://ifttt.com/ to learn more.

This is unfortunately not a workable solution because IFTT does not let you choose more than 1 IF condition.
I want my lamp connected to the Wemo switch to turn off when I leave the apartment and only turn back on if between certain hours and status is home.
Has anyone found any other alternative solution? Is there another device other than Wemo that will let you use Nest home/away assist with sunset/sunrise schedule settings?

Not another device, you can use a wemo if you run AutomationManager as a server. You can trigger it using the "THEN" in IFTTT and an AM rule condition such as between certain times, or between sunset and a given time (including sunrise).
