Wemo Bridge -Siri needs to say “kitchen light switch” not “kitchen Light”

I just set up the Wemo bridge, and managed to get everything working however I seem to need to tell Siri to use the word “switch” in order to get Siri to turn on any of my WeMo light switches. it would be a lot more convenient if I could just say “Siri turn on living room light” instead of “Siri turn on the Living Room light switch” is there anyway to rename the device or do anything else to get it to work without saying the word “switch”

You can rename the device name in the Home app or the Wemo app (assuming you’ve allowed the Wemo app to Access Home data).  As far as I can tell you can use either the type name (outlet, switch, etc) or the device name when talking to Siri.

Hi everyone! You can simply edit the device names on the HomeKit app and Wemo app so it will be addressed by Siri. 

Hope this helps.
