OMG... EVERY TIME I ope the Wemo app I am asked whether I want to use the Wemo Device name or the Apple Home device name...EVERY TIME! Can the app just please remember my preference or give me the option to have it stop asking?? So Annoying!
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 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!!!!!
It would be a great enhancment to allow grouping on the WeMo app. I have several WeMo devices (24) and to find the one I want to switch is difficult. But, if I knew it were in a group, say "garage", then I could open that group on the app and turn on or off the switch.
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.
The rules option needs to be able to tell me at a glace which mini switch is using what rules intead of oppeing each rule to remember what switch does that rule. Very frustration if you have like 7 mini plugs at 2 locations
Hello I think it would be great to be able to set the Wemo dimmer light bar as a night light. Customizing the existing colors and setting on/off times would be a fantastic feature. Even allowing to turn it on for specific scenes etc.
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.
In the automation rules set it would be great if you could syncronize the on / off of a wemo switch with another device. For example I have a light switch that controls a wall socket that I used to turn on a lamp. But in the same room there's another lamp that isn't on a switched wall socket but I have a wemo light bulb in it. It would be great if by pressing the wemo switch I could turn both on / off with a single press.
If you are a consumer like me, there's a chance you bought the WEMO dimmer thinking the blue light below the timmer looks great as shown in most marketing materials. Well to my surprise, that light goes away when dimmer is all set up, and there's no way to change the behavior of the indicator light!
My suggestion is to allow end users to choose what the indicator light below the dimmer does. In my case, i'd like to make the indicator light below the dimmer stay on all the time or when the lights are off.
In addition, since that's an RGB light, it would be awesome to let us use a color wheel to change the color as well.
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.

Hi Wemo team,
whilst the dimmers are great, the constant small light indicators on the switch can be really annoying, especially in the bedroom.
Pls. add the functionality to turn this off in the app, so that the lights only come on when the dimmer is actually used. Ideally, this function should be incorporated into the night mode, so it can be timed.
It would be nice if the WeMo modules could be configured to use a default ON state after a power outage, such that lights would come back ON when the power returned.
Firstly, I believe that ON/OFF state should be remembered even after a power outage anyway, so that if a light was on, it comes back on when the power returns. IMHO this should be the "normal" behaviour since this is what would be expected if WeMo switches weren't being used. Right now, after a power failure, any WeMo connected lights remain off.
Additionally, however, I would like to see an optional setting that could be used to have lights turn ON, regardless of previous state, following a return of power to the WeMo modules. This would not only be useful for things like actual power outages, but also switched outlets -- allowing a lamp to optionally be controlled by the wall switch. In this case, turning ON the wall switch would turn on the WeMo which would turn on the attached lamp.
Please add the new function to allow the wemo dimmer switch to change the level of the output within the rule (schedule). Like turn on the light on sunset at 100% and change to the level to 50% after 12:00am till sunrise to turn off.
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%
Allow us to have it turn on and fade up to x%
Only if the light is already off
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
