What should settings > Firmware Update do?

On my tablet it cheerfully offers "Let's see if we have anything new for you..." and spins forever.  Well, maybe not forever, I didn't wait THAT long, but more than an hour which seemed sufficient.

 

Android 5.0.2, WeMo v1.22.  14 wemos including a link with 2 bulbs.

Re: What should settings > Firmware Update do?

Funny that.  You'd think belkin would ask for a trace log or something from their app to figure out what's wrong.  Or at least say they know and will fix it soon.  If they continue to ignore this bug it's going to make it tough should we ever decide to allow them to upgrade our firmware...

I do wonder why they haven't pulled the plug and exited from the IOT business – just like Iris by Lowe's. How hard can it be to do something that actually works properly? Do you think the Dev resource is being outsourced and there's a SLA in place? If they had an internal Dev team, we'd see more frequent updates.

Yeah, I'm thinking outsourced too, and given this and the latest firmware, the "engineers" working on this stuff don't even have access to real devices...

 

I've lost hope for any redemntion like Iris - belkin tends to abandon us once they decide they can't fix their firmware...

Seems like a bad version of a dance move – one step forward, two steps back.
