Power failure alerts

by Tipnel on ‎07-18-2017 08:38 AM
A single plugin to a circuit that will alert you when the power goes out. This could alert you to outtiges for refrigerators, freezers, home security, ect. It could include a failsafe power back-up for a mobile alart system.

I believe there are multiple reasons that Belkin should provide a web interface for managing an indivisulas WeMo network. Here are some of the reasons I would like it, I am sure others have some good reasons also.

 

1)Cell phones become obsolete too quickly to be used as the only manager for a product that should be expected to be in use for many years.

 

2)I use my WeMo device in remote locations, some are hours away but accessable remotely. If I lose/break/upgrade my phone, it is unrealsitic to have to travel to all of my remote sites to get my network back on my phone. A web interface would not only allow for me to continue to control the network, but could possibly allow for me to push my network to the Belkin App on my new phone.

 

3)Phone operating systems update so frequently, requiring frequent application updates, which can only lead to issues for us users.

 

4)Belkin should have no issues with constructing a web interface considering they have been in the networking game for years.

3-way switches

Status: Under Review
by coreymcl on ‎06-18-2014 01:29 PM

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.

I would like to install many wemo controlled dimmers in my home.

Ceiling Fan Control

by jedwards on ‎05-28-2017 07:49 AM

Would love to see you guys release a ceiling fan controller to replace the wall switch.

 

Thanks

 

 

Would be really nice if you could add the ability to group lights together but still be able to turn them on and off separately. This is really useful for rules and IFTTT.

Wemo Dimmer IFTTT Channel?

by Gump0r on ‎05-25-2017 05:27 PM

I purchased the WEMO Dimmer recently after waiting patiently for it's release to market. So far I have been pleased with it in general, but the lack of an IFTTT channel for the Dimmer has halted my ability to be as creative as I wanted to be with it and been dissapointing for the $80 sticker price of the device.

 

When will there be an IFTTT Wemo Dimmer specific channel? The Wemo Light Switch channel will not do what I am primarily looking for.

 

Specifically I wanted to be able to control:

  • Dimmer % amounts
    • It's movie time! Dim the lights to 10%
  • Fade in
    • Allow us to have it turn on and fade up to x%
    • Only if the light is already off
  • Fade out
    • Allow us to have it fade off from the current level
    • Only if the light is alread on
  • Turn on (Available on Light Switch)
    • Basic turn on to the last dim level
  • Turn off (Available on Light Switch)
    • Basic turn off from the current dim level
  • Toggle (Available on Light Switch, but not wth fade option)
    • If on, turn off. If off, turn on.
    • Allow a flag to have it toggle fade in or toggle fade out

 

Warm regards,

Neil

 

3 Way Light Switch / Dimmer

by mrarango on ‎06-16-2015 10:31 PM
I would love to see a Wemo 3 Way light switch. I have multiple locations in my home where I have 3 Way switches and I would love to be able to control those lights with my iPhone, preferably with HomeKit.
And if you could also figure out a way to make it dim dimmable that would just be awesome!!!!!

iOS 8 Homekit integration

Is Belkin/WeMo is working on adding support for Apple's new HomeKit platform comming in iOS8?

Open Source the Firmware!

by bschonec on ‎05-13-2015 09:43 AM

You'd have thousands of developers almost overnight if you open sourced the firmware.  Look at all of the companies out there that are doing just FINE with open source.  Red Hat, PuppetLabs, Ubuntu.  Belkin, you make the hardware and let the hacking community make the best firmware possible.

I understand that the current app only has the ability to control one location remotely.  However, this seems to be a silly restriction and significantly limits the functionality of the product.

 

I have two properties that are several hundred kilometers away.  Right now if I want to control both properties remotely, I need two separate devices, one for each property, which is ridiculous.  If one device breaks or I lose it, I lose any ability to control one property.  And if I happed to lose the device that controls the property that is truly remote, the only way I have to reconnect a new device is to physically drive 2-3 hours just so I can connect to the wifi and restablish connection. Again, this is ridiculous.

 

Both locations go to the cloud before they go to my device.  Therefore, it should be fairly simple to be able to select different locations from within the app.  From the app on a single device, I should be able to switch back and forth between property A and property B.

 

As a point in reference, I have a wifi thermostat in each property.  I am easilty able to control each property from a single app on a single device.  In addition, there is a web interface which I can use if my device breaks.  This is not rocket science. I have had these wifi thermostats for 3 years. Please consider adding this basic funcationality to your app.

Status: Planned

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.

Status: Under Review
by daviddshoop on ‎07-30-2014 03:55 PM

I would like to see a WeMo power strip.  I would invision the following:

 

1. 110VAC with fuse protection

2. ~6 outlets

3. Each outlet can be controlled

   a. together (on/off) e.g. master power

   b. individualy (on/off), each outlet seprately

   c. in groups (on/off), e.g. group 1 = outlet 1, 2 and 3, group 2, outlet 4, 5 and 6.  Group 3 outlet 1 and 6.  

4. Groups can have timers/rules et against them

5. Allow proper integratino with IFTTT, more than 1 product to be interfaced with IFTTT

 

Thanks.

I am using the wemo maker on my battery monitor as a trigger to turn on wemo switches for hot water etc when batteries are full on my off grid set up.
A feature that would be amazing is to use the standby mode of one wemo switch as the trigger for another switch to utilise solar power during the day and not overload the inverter.

Thank a million if do a app update to include this feature

Garage Opener Relay

Something that you could add as on open/close close button for your garage would be cool.  Simple feature tells you open or closed.

IOS 10 Widget

Having a widget for IOS 10 would be a great feature, and would allow for control over my lights without opening the app. 

Blink function for IFTTT

by witsend11541 on ‎05-31-2017 11:17 AM
I am deaf and I use Wemo light switches to notify me when someone rings my Skybell. Currently the Wemo light switch only supports turn on, turn off, turn on then off (which only counts as one blink if they were off), turn off then on, and toggle.

Please add a blink function to IFTTT- it should blink at least 3 times, 5 is good, returning to the original state. Even if I'm in an adjacent room, I will notice this, where I won't for one blink, especially in the daytime. Philips Hue can do this, 10 times, which is a bit much.

Thanks,
Clint
