I found a link stating that WeMo App cannot control other WeMo devices in different homes. To control WeMo devices in multiple locations, you will need another iOS or Android device for each location. Here's the link to tthat: http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?articleNum=72619 To properly configure the WeMo device, you need to uninstall the WeMo App, then reset the WeMo device and turn it Off. After that, download the latest App then turn the WeMo device On. Use the latest App to reconfigure the unit.

I can now control the switches one way, but it's interesting. Because the wifi networks in both homes are named the same, the wemo app does not find the the switches when I am at the second home, but if I switch to the guest network it finds them and they work just fine...

It sucks, but you're right, it can't. I tried that myself, thinking I could fool it into thinking all devices are under one roof, but it's too smart, it knows the routers themselves are different, it doesn't just look at the SSID. So far, only using IFTTT apparently is the only way to pull it off with one IOS device controlling Wemos at two locations.

The WEMO App keeps a list of devices it expects to see on a network. If you connect to a network with the same SSID it sees that and then sends out a UPNP request to see if those WEMO's are there. Since it doesn't find them it doesn't show them.

Add me to the list of people trying to control Wemo's in two different locations. It never even occured to me the app would be locked to a particular location.
Currently my only choice is to use one device for one location and one device for the other.
There must be a way around this!

Controlling WEMO devices in multiple locations using 1 handheld device is a nice idea. I'm pretty sure Belkin will provide an update if this feature will be available. Let's just wait and see. :-)

It's on the roadmap. It was pushed out a bit due to different issues we ran into during the year with releasing all the new products that came out as well as a couple of hiccups that required a lot of attention. I'm not sure where the DEV team guys have it placed for at the moment though. Sorry about that. But it is on the list of "will be implemented".

Interesting that this isn't supposed to work but I have devices working in my house and also at my cabin 100 miles away and all working from my iPad & iPhone. Maybe it's because I do all of my Wifi setups manually since I have hidden SSIDs?
