Ceiling Fan Control

Status: Under Review
by pocketjacks on ‎06-02-2014 01:36 PM

It would be nice if Belkin were to partner with a manufacturer that already provides a wall plate ceiling fan control that could also tie into IFTTT.  Example such as "If the outside temp goes below 75 degrees, set the bedroom fan to low".  This way when it cools down while you're asleep, you won't be chilly because the fan is too high.

That app on the phone seems a little slow and not as smooth or fluid as i would liek a home automation product to be. if there wa a desktop app to set rules and possible web browser access when away. That may aleeviate some of my frustration with the app.

app update...

by dmor on ‎12-17-2017 10:53 PM

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

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

 

Light/fan switch

by Janlumenti on ‎05-19-2017 12:45 PM
You need to add wall switch that works with a combo fan and light switch

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.

 

Thanks! I'm eager to hear everyone's comments!

We all have wall warts everywhere.  Enough already!  They don't look good.

 

I understand why you've gone the direction you've gone with respect to plugging into electrical outlets.  Doesn't require an electrician (I'd argue swapping a receptical doesn't require an electrician either).  For every device designed to plug into a receptical, I'd like to see an comparable wall-plate version.  For recepticals, those could be proud of the wall by as much as 1/2 inch in my opion, if package size isn't available.

 

A perfect example is the motion sensor.  If there were a decora compatible in-wall version, you could sell me at least a half dozen for integration with the Light Control Switch.  One can easily add a (2)-gang box where a 1-gang box existed (or 3-gange where 2 existed, etc.).  Then a motion sensor could be installed adjacent to the swith location OR adjacent to a wall receptical.  It's just cleaner installation overall and one could better utilize Light Control Switches elsewhere in my home.

 

While I'm on the subject, the product line could benefit from a Light Control Swith with integrated motion sensing as well.  That mimics a common switch on the market.  I'd pay as much as $20/switch more for the additional functionality.

 

Same thing with the receptical switches (of which I own 4)...I'd much rather they were integrated into the wall and didn't take up limited recepticle space.  After all...if one has children, those are probably all occupied by a transformers with a multitude of different plugs associated with an even wider variety of stuff.

 

Here's an application that's an annoyance in my home built in the 90's:  the wall wart that is the CO detector.  How about a 3-gang, WeMo enabled CO detector?  Cut some drywall and swap out a 1-gang for a 4-gang at a wall receptacle...wire into power...nice clean installation.  And besides the alarm, with WeMo and IFTTT integration, one could have bedroom lights flash or something.

 

At some point you're going to have to deal with new construction.  Dangling off an outlet isn't a great plan and other companies have more integrated options.  I'd buy integrated product for remodeling my own home.  Haven't at this point because the consumer adopted standard doesn't seem to have settled, and I don't want 10 more things dangling off my router either.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dedicated iPad App

by markstaint on ‎06-16-2014 09:03 PM

Hi there - I was directed to this site from getsatisfaction.

 

I was hoping to get some insight (excuse the pun) on when or if there is an iPad app in development. It is really frustrating to have no access to landscape mode, especially when that is exactly how the netcams want to work. I have my iPad wall mounted as a control station, and this feature would be awesome

Wemo device name vs Home Name

by hursey on ‎03-28-2018 07:22 PM

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!

IOS 10 Widget

by A1 on ‎09-19-2016 05:43 PM

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

IFTTT wemo lighting channel is great, but there's no toggle action. The switch has toggle, but the lighting only is on or off. So you have to make a separate recipe for on and off, which is annoying, especially for the Do app, where you only get 3 buttons

Wall receptacle

I would like to see WeMo as a normal recessed standard wall receptacle. Not something that sticks out.

HomeKit integration

by plo90 on ‎09-28-2014 05:28 PM

HomeKit integration so that I can use Siri iOS 8 to control my devices.  Or how about an add-on for notification centre to allow easier access?

WeMo app

by txmmoore on ‎03-12-2018 10:20 AM

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.

Ceiling Fan Control

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

 

Thanks

 

 

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.

My biggest idea for these plugs is some basic reliability. Every app update that comes through comes with enhancements for coffee pots and crockpots and yet every week often times multiple times my switches drop off the network, the names get muddled, pictures disappear. Why is all this effort being added to other devices when you cannot even get the basics right?

 

You want us to 'Wemo That' and make everything Wemo but I will certainly not be spending any more money on the switches given their reliability and in fact really want a refund for them but I doubt this will be forthcoming. 

 

If you can nail the reliability then these will be fantastic products that would be highly recommended. These products feel like you have released the product and forgotten about it, ongoing support is essential as is actual product improvement, especially when you want us to trust you with electricity in our homes. 

 

An iPhone 6 optimised app is also a bare minimum, the iPhone 6 has been out for nearly a year now and yet it still is not optimised? Much much smaller companies had apps ready for day 1 and yet nearly a year later you have nothing? Again this feels like a product you released and given up on. The least you could do would be make the SDK open like Philips Hue so at worst and you truly have forgotten about this then others can take up the challenge and release better apps and improve the relaibility. 

 

Cheers.

How about a establishing a group construct .. where for exmple you could define group  to have all 2nd floor switches . I would like this group construct carried over to IFTTT.

I know this can be done already with IFTTT, but if you have high number of Wemo switches it would be tedious.

Essentally all switch could/should be a default group. You then could quickly implement something like a IOS proximity event to turn all lights on.
