Default to always-on after power failure or reboot

by Jay6k on ‎11-11-2018 05:31 AM

I desperately want this feature for my wemo insight. I use it to report on my sump pump which I need to always be in an alert state. I have an IFTT routine that has worked in the past but it takes time to phone home and my wemo’s Internet connection can be spotty at its location in my house. Default-on option, please!

I have both the older WEMO switch Australian plug format and also the insight electronic version but that does not survive (functionaly speaking) a blackout or power outage. The older type with a mechanical button on it does keep working once the blackout is over! Note that range extenders can help if your wifi is spotty - in particular the more expensive TP-Link one AC1750 with fold out aerials on a slider (Officeworks) really helps!

Automation Manager to the rescue ... I have lots of devices setup that faithfully recover after a power outage.
