Hi. I have a few switches already. I just purchased the plug. I was hoping to use a wemo light switch to turn the wemo plug on and off. Is this possible? I don't see anything in the rules to set this up.
This should be basic functionality, and i'm also surprised that after so long, it's not the case.
Hooking a light switch to existing power is easy. Having it control a lamp in the room via a plug switch would be ideal.
Also long-press functionality should also be accessible from within the app. One could hide plug switches from the main list, to avoid double-ups.
Essentially, the best way to do this would be to group them, so that whenever either one was turned on, both were turned on. That way, you could also use a light switch to control multiple outlets -- as well as having wemo motion trigger multiple switches.
Groups could appear on the main interface with the edit button allowing you to add/remove switches from that group.
Add a long press rule - you can control multiple other devices, and because it's not using the IFTTT network, it's faster (assume it's still using the wemo cloud, so probably won't work if you're offline.
