Work with Stringify

by nscheetz on ‎11-15-2016 10:04 PM

IFTTT is only good for simple applets. There is far more flexibility in Stringify.  Please partner with them so that WeMo devices can be included in Stringify experiences, They are FAR more robust than IFTTT and easy to create. Thanks

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 Smiley Wink


Many thanks!

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.  

WEMO app multiple locations

by NAE on ‎06-21-2015 01:25 PM

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 want to replace and existing dimmer switch at the top of our staircase with a switch  that can detect motion and turn on the lights but also allow me to dim the lights when they are on.

Any solutions??

HomeKit integration

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 in iOS widget

by A1m1o1 on ‎07-26-2015 07:20 AM
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.

Wemo water detector

by eddyruiz on ‎04-20-2015 10:11 AM

Wemo water detector. works when a water pipe breaks and the person is not in the home the water detector will avice before it is  too late. example (washer , dishes washer, refrigerator, sinck, toiles, water heater, etc.

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.

Status: Under Review

I love that the WeMo Insight can log power consumption information but hate that there were no software tools to see the data.  So I created my own. 

The writeup is here.
But more importantly the actual result is here.

A WeMo module that can send infrared control signals.

by PeterJameson ‎06-22-2016 01:09 PM - edited ‎06-22-2016 01:11 PM

Hello Belkin


Since many WeMo users want to switch their entertainment devices on and off with WeMo, and cannot do so since most TVs and HiFis etc. have electronic on/off switches that return in the standby mode after the WeMo cuts the power to them, it would be a good idea to introduce a new WeMo device that can send infrared signals for on and off.


Since there are so many standards for infrared signals, such a WeMo device could be made so that it can learn the code from the entertainment device's remote control handset.

Windows Universal App

Please write a universal app for Windows 8.x and Windows Phone 8.x. Looking to deploy these in the houses I rent out for security purposes when they are empty...

Local Grouping of switches/outlets

by dhaaa on ‎10-24-2014 02:30 PM

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.

WeMo Controlled Door Lock

by CSD on ‎06-05-2014 01:43 PM

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...

Outdoor camera and security.

by Curious on ‎11-30-2014 01:49 PM
Is wemo going to have and outdoor camera with night vision and some security components like a smart deadbolt and door or window switches. I can see these being in demand with your already developed products.

For my application, I need the momentary option of the relay switch on the WEMO Maker to stay on longer than it is set for. It would be nice if we had the option to select the amount of time the switch stays on. Like 1 second, 2 seconds, 3 seconds because sometime certain applications need a longer press of the switch.


For now I am using the toggle switch but pushing it twice to act as a momentary switch that stays on for 2-3 seconds. Maybe Wemo would update the program to provide that option.
