It seems like every time there's a power outage (I live in Central America so this is frequently) the rules for my wemo light switch stop working. I can still see the rules listed in the rules section of the app but they just don't work. I have to delete and re-create the rules to get them working again. Obviously this is an annoying hassle as we have two or three power outages a week.
Anyone else had this experiece? Any one figured out a fix? Thanks.

Hi, stullsen. If the power outage occurs, instead of deleting and recreating the rule, try to power cycle the Wemo device instead. Also, make sure to update the firmware version of your Wemo device.

@jbutterfly Remote Access feature allows you to easily and securely control Wemo devices in your home from anywhere and at any time after initial set up process. For it to work, the feature should be enabled on the handheld device while connected to the home network to use it outside to control the Wemo units remotely.

Shut up, Carl. That wasn’t remotely helpful or related to OP’s question.
OP: what is probably happening is the wemos finish rebooting before the WiFi, and then get lost tying to find a network that doesn’t exist yet. If you are able to remotely cycle the wireless AP, do so. Once the WiFi is back up the wemos should notice and reconnect.
