I have been following the other threads and see everyone is optimistic that Belikn will add support for Apples Homekit. Does anyone have a sense of weather all existing wemo products will be compatible with homekit? I have been seeing a lot of sales and steep discounts on items in the wemo line lately that have me worried if they are trying to clear inventory for new models. I have a good investment in wemo and want to buy more but im stalled waiting to hear more about homekit and wemo.
My guess is Apple would require all home kit products to have a high level of security and for wemo to be secure and not open to any device on the wifi network. My concern or wonder is can wemo implement security with just a firmware upgrade?
Just my random thoughts, as I grow tired of waiting for apples homekit release and more info from belkin
Is there anyone who could help me and relieve me of the last nine hours of stress I have had. I don't know the reason, but haven't used wemo link until today trying to hook up eight bulbs. I am able to connect to the link with no problem and the app says I am connected but after eight hours it is still not able to locate the bulbs what the hell am I doing wrong?
I don't remember if my wemo link was originally connected to my singleband router but regardless to that it is now hooked up to a dual band router and I believe it is on the 2.4
I just purchased the WeMo switch and motion control. If I now order the WeMo bulbs alone, will they work with the switch and motion control that I just purchased or do I need to order another control to work the bulbs. I am thinking they will all work, say if I get three bulbs off of the switch and motion control I will be getting tomorrow.

We desparately need the Wemo Light Switch for the UK this will make it far easier to automate the lighting in the house and also enable the use of the lights in the normal manner for people who dont use the app.
It would also be good to introduce RGB bulbs to enable mood lighting.
I have a VPN server that connects me to my home network. It seems like when I VPN in to my network the WEMO app is not able to see the device. It tells me there is No Network Connection even though I can ping the device. I also have upgraded to the latest firmware WeMo_WW_2.00.10062.PVT-OWRT-LS
I do not want to enable Remote Access as I want to control my switch locally on my network and not through the WEMO cloud.
I don't see why the app is not able to communicate to the device when on VPN.
I have several WeMo switches and motion sensors and whem i was playing around with them I was very sad to find out that if my A/C is disconnected from power that when using the switch it will not come back on and I was trying to find a solution to this problem when an Idea hit me. Programable IR light. My A/C like many others uses an IR remote control and if I could put an IR emitter on the WeMo app it would allow me not just on/off but full functionality of the A/C. that also led me to realize that would open up the posibility of full control of a TV as well or anything that uses a remote.
Even if it's 3 speeds or something a wireless motor controller/fan controller would be nice. I use a inline exhaust fan to move heat and air conditioning throughout the house. Could also be used for exhaust fans in bathrooms, paint booths, etc or even to power box fans, Windows fans in the summer.
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.
The one challenge that I have is that my rates are based on time of day. The insight switch is one of the few that I have found that allows for exporting of data, but appears to be limited to daily numbers. I don't have one so I cannot speak from experience, but all the resarch I have done points to daily, weekly, or monthly exports.
Is there a way to get more granular data exports (hourly) from the device? Obviously it has to keep a certain amount of detail data to be able to do the calculations. Would love to be able to export this...
I bought the WeMo bulbs under the impression that I could use them with IFTTT but I can't seem to make it work. I haven't found any information about it online either. Does anyone know what's going on there?
