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.
Now that we have Harmony Elite, their remote can control Bluetooth and WiFi devices. There's even an socket HW button on the remote. But WeMo integration is sadly missing! Please try to cooperate and implement
I used several of these devices to overcome issues with electronics while away from a 2nd home (parents). I use my phone for my residence and my wife's phone for the parents. But after buying some for a third location, I can't even see Wemos using the app.
Interestingly, In three different locations where I also have wireless cameras these DLink register to their network and ALLOW cameras from these different areas to be seen and controlled from one screen - I am able to operate devices in 3 homes. I don't think their scheme is proprietary so this could merely be a software update for Belkin.
Numerous people have asked why the WEMO app doesn't work with WEMO devices at multiple locations and only received put-off responses. This is not rocket science. Both DLink and Samsung have apps which control their devices located at multiple locations. A simple interim solution is to supply multiple apps with different names (WEMO1, WEMO2, etc) so users can use one app for each location. But the correct solution should be easy to implement.
Perhaps someone at Belkin can explain why anybody should continue to buy your products when Belkin continues to ignore the needs of its customers. Perhaps Belkin should replace the head of its division which is responsible for WEMO with a person who actually cares. Otherwise Belkin will make what otherwise could be a good product a commercial failure.
As a customer I am regretting that I purchased any Belkin product, and this experience will effect any recommendations or specifications for Belkin products in the future.
But it is not too late. Stop daydreaming, get out of your chair and actually solve the problem or replace the person who is ignoring your customers with someone who is competent to solve the problem.
I would like to be able to specify something along the lines of "When switch A is turned on/off, turn on/off switch B and C also". This should be done entirely on the local network, WITHOUT hitting IFTTT.
My setup is: In my living room, I have a wemo light switch, and two wemo outlet switches. I would like to just press the light switch and have all 3 switches turn off/on. Right now, I have an IFTTT rule set up to do this, but there is something like a 10 second delay for my light switch to send its state change off to IFTTT, have IFTTT process it, and then have IFTTT turn off/on my two outlet switches.
This could be done entirely on the local network almost instantaneously, without having to hit IFTTT.
I would like to be able to control my WeMo switches through the pull-down widget menu in iOS. This way I could control my switches without having to log in to my phone, open the app, and wait for switches to load.

Would love to see a WeMo-controlled lock that will enable user to remotely controll visitors' access to property. Ideally, it would also send an alert when door has been opened and by whom.
I had pre-ordered one from a different company but cancelled becuase it would've required physical changes to be made to my door. Plus, since I'm already using WeMo in my home, I'd prefer one that is on the same platform...
