MAKER WORK WITH HOME BRIDGE

by Caz on ‎04-21-2018 04:27 AM

WeMo maker with home control PLEASE

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 Widget

by philc on ‎11-05-2018 01:15 PM
Recommend that you consider changing the current configuration of your widget which is extremely large and difficult to see if on/ off. The widget's button should show full solid green when ON instead of the current ring circle. Thank you.

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.

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!!!!!

Device folder

by GregOfLodi on ‎07-19-2018 12:56 PM

Please add a feature to the APP to create a folder, name the folder and assign a device to a folder. I currently have 11 devices and, as I continue to automate my house, I will soon have 20 or more. I would like to create a folder called security and put all my security related devices in it. Another fold to contain fans, etc.

Have an option to keep the dimmer Light bar to stay lit (blue) when light is off. So light switch can be found easier in the dark.

It also will give it a high tech look.

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.

WeMo Power Strip

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.

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.

Set Default ON State after Power Outage

Status: Planned
by Community Manager on ‎08-10-2012 02:10 PM

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.

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.

Dimmer Light bar as night light?

by Gc1976 on ‎03-02-2018 05:15 PM
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.

Make Wemo Bulbs HomeKit Compatible

by Quazar on ‎02-23-2018 06:54 AM
Belkin has discontinued the production of the Wemo bulb, not sure why because they work great. Now for everyone who has a bunch of these bulbs they are left behind and to but Hue lights because the bulbs are not currently supported by the Wemo Bridge. What is the point of making a bridge if half the products are not even compatible with it?? This was a terrible business decision (to discontinue the bulbs and quit supporting them) because I’m now switching completely to Phillips Hue. I imagine most people will end up doing the same.

Index my devices alphabetically

by Fred on ‎11-26-2017 06:41 PM
Wemo devices, in the 1st page of the app, should be alphabetical to make them easier to find. Listing is now “last installed at the bottom of the list “. Belkin, Please do this

Power Strip

Get on it as others already are.

 

And make them all HomeKit compatible, without an extra purchase.

 

From a discussion thread:

Integrate with Stringify

by calabaza on ‎01-12-2018 09:39 AM

It would be great if you could integrate with Stringify, much like you have with IFTTT.  Using stringify allows for more complex actions, so I think this would only be benefitial.

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.
