3-way switches

Status: Under Review

I for one have a number of light switches I would love to replace with WEMO's however the switches in question are 3-way. While I understand if the WEMO devices don't talk to each other, but neither do the analog switches I have today. Please consider adding 3 way switches this way your customer won't have to look at other products such as z-wave devices. 

Thanks for the consideration.

Sounds like with the new update and the long press rule that allows for one switch to control others, including toggling other switches it's now possible! Wiring two Wemo light switches like described by Mike P and then setting a toggle rule to turn on and off with the opposite switch when it's pair is pressed should do the trick! I haven't tried this yet but I'm going to try it soon and in theory it it makes sense.

Please, for the love of Pete and progress, please create 3-way switches!!  There are so many 3-way switches at both homes that I would love to add to my set up!

 

Please, please, please, please!!!!  Guaranteed sales of at least 16 with this guy!

 So this post started over 2 1/2 years ago - anybody from Belkin R&D / Development got anything to say?

I am looking to buy switches for two houses but do not want multiple vendors, as no Wemo available for three way, I guess I'm going an alternate route.

 

A date - 1 month, 6 months, this year - any clue is good

I started with Wemo and purchased a number of switches... after realizing they don't work as 3-way... I returned them and went a different route.  This was over a year ago and I haven't looked back.  No regrets.

This is really easy to accomplish if you redesign the switch to add one more connection.  

 

If you are replacing a pair of 3-way switches, then you have a traveler wire running between them.  You connect the new wire from each switch to the traveller wire and the switches can now signal each other.  Only one switch is connected to the load (the master switch).  The master switch functions normally except that it can also be turned on and off by somebody pushing the button on the remote switch or sending an on or off signal via Wi-Fi to the switch.  A W-Fi signal to either switch or a button press on either switch sets both switches to the same logical state.

 

I have Pass & Seymour occupancy sensor switches (RRW600U) in my stairwell and they function like this.  In fact you can connect multiple remote units on the same traveller wire.  Belkin just needs to substitute the motion detection function with Wi-Fi control and then it would work.

Though if you have white, black, and a traveller you don't need to do any signalling at all (or wait for Belkin to get 'round to it), just add smart switches and optionally synchronize them with automation.  The problem is older wiring sometimes doesn't have a neutral wire in all of the boxes.  There are a few options even in that case: Wemo 3 Ways.
