Please create a web application so we can control our WeMo devices from any device that supports a browser

Creating the web app that could access our devices through your WeMo server would eliminate the need for building apps across multiple devices and platforms. I currently have some wifi cameras from another company and they provide both apps for iPhone/iPad and the web based interface that I can use from a PC or Mac or another tablet that has a browser.

Excellent Idea

I stongly support this as well.

 

1. The remote access issue is key.  I have two properties several hundred kilometers apart.  Right now I need two devices, one to control each property remotely, which is ridiculous.  If one device breaks or gets lost, I lose any ability to control one location.  In addition to the apps, there should be a web interface that can be used in addition to the device.

 

2. We need more management abilities, for instance to remove old "authorized remote devices" from the list. 

 I had to do a factory reset on my phone.  When I reinstalled the wemo app and set it up for remote access, it figured I was accessing the network from a difference device and now my phone shows up twice. One is legit, the other is just old history hanging around and there is no way to remove it. 

Also, I have a couple older devices that have since broken or been replaced.  However, there is no way to remove these from the list of "authorized devices" since I do not physically possess the devices anymore.  So there is no way to "Forget and Disable" the device. This could be done from a web app.

I agree.  One should be able to control their WeMo devices via the PC.

Especially since the Android app is such junk.

I agree with this, a web application is much easier to manuver than any phone.

 

I have a Nest Device and although the phone app is good the website is just do much better if making changes.

 

I believe that this is the way to go... you have the ability to do things with the Netcam's online seems like you could merge that into that site to give you total control via a web portal.

 

IMHO

I have wanted this for so long!  My job puts me at sea for months at a time, and I only have internet access.  My wife is not tech savvy, and with our homes being spread across five states it is impossible for her to try to troubleshoot or check on statuses of the devices.  Please make this happen!

Yes!  A web app to manage my wemo devices makes total sense!
