Anyone know how to solve this? I have a Himalayan Salt Lamp that has a tap on switch that also acts as a dimmer. I’ve connected my WeMo switch (i have several other on with normal on/off lamps) and I can hear it click on and off but it has no effect on the light. The lamp switch is like the one in this photo.
I’d really love to have this lamp on a timer!
Solved! Go to Solution.

This not a fault of the WeMo.
It is unlikely that you will get your touch dimmer lamp to light up when powered through your WeMo at initial switch on. This is because the lamp's default state at powering up i.e. plugging straight into your wall socket or powering via a WeMo is almost certainly "off" due to its internal electronic switching circuitry.
Once you have switched the power on via the WeMo, you should be able to use the lamp's touch dimmer facility.

Hi, iamfancyp. Try to connect a different lamp or electronic device to the WEMO switch to test if also does not turn it On/Off. Also, what's the model number of the switch? Can you also check the LED status as you tap the On/Off button on the App? Have you also tried pressing the physical button to further see if it behaves the same?

I have the same lamp. I cut the dimmer off from the cord and connected a standard plug to it. I then have my WEMO dimmer switch control the wall socket taht I plug it into. No probllems.

Did you lose the touch-dimming facility after replacing the plug?
Edit: Ah! Upon closer reading I see you cut off the dimmer unit so the dimming facility must have been lost.
