I have a large sunroom with 4 ceiling mounted lights, most of the time I only need one on.

While I can use the the app to control the lights, I would like it easy for others to control the lights individually with for example 4 buttons or switches on the wall.

Possibly single press to change the state of the lamp on/off, or a long press to change the brightness.

API or Open Source Project

by raz0r53dge on ‎07-27-2015 05:05 AM

WeMo needs to be open sourced or turned into an API with which other developers can not only enhance the functionality of the product but also enhance the security of the product. Given the position of connected power plugs in the home as something that has an influence over electricity and physical products in our homes, security is of utmost importance. If a computer is hacked it may be inconvenient or even costly, if a connected home product is hacked it could be dangerous or worse. Can we trust Belkin to keep these devices secure when they cannot even ensure the basic functionality of their product. I cannot pretend to know what goes on within Belkin but there is a distinct lack of transparency shown about development roadmaps or even evidence that our feedback in these forums is being listened to and actioned, therefore how can we trust these products in our homes.


The ideas in forums such as these should be of the utmost importance to Belkin and the level of interaction should be significantly greater. We are the consumers who are willing to engage with Belkin and help to improve the product for the future. Most consumers faced with the problems many of us have would simply throw these devices away and tell their friends never to buy from Belkin. Instead we persevere and seek out forums where we can come together and try and offer solutions. It does not feel like Belkin appreciates or even acknowledges this. 


If you want to sell these products and sell hardware, then you need to open up control of this software to other developers so that reliability and security do not need to be concerns anymore. Furthermore you will add in functionality that enhances your product, think about the positive experience consumers have in owning Philip's hue bulbs. Don't like something they've done? Download a different app, want a function that they do not offer someone else may well have developed it. WeMo offers no such positive experience. Think something is missing? Too bad. Think the app is incomplete? Too bad. Belkin would rather generate hashtags from our experiences than fix the products we rely on.

Outdoor motion Sensor and wall switch

by Jerjohns on ‎07-27-2015 12:24 AM
Similar to the design of the Heath Zenith motion light set.
It would be nice to have my outdoor lights motion and Wemo controlled.

We would like to set it us so certain switches can not be turned on during a certain time, even if you click the switch manually. Is there a way to create a rule that will say from x time to y time the switch remains off unless the rule is turned off?

Changeable plug adapters

by Ozmike on ‎07-26-2015 01:16 AM

Travelling as often as I do - for months at a time, I would like to see the ability for WEMO SWITCHES to be formatted simliar to a Universal Input, Interchangeable Plug, Travel Adaptor With USB Charging Outlets. This would give the WEMO SWITCH global appeal.

  • Interchangeable adaptors for travel - allows use in 98% of the world
  • Austomatic Voltage 110-240V. No Transformers required
  • Total combined output 2.1A max. 
  • Charges iPads (1.7A required). Normal 1 port USB chargers only allow 0.5A, insufficient to charge an iPad.

Extrapellating this idea could see Blekin make a WEMO USB PORT the could turn on / off periferals, saving power.

surveillance camera

wemo needs to have cameras (netcams) that are meant to be used outside so that both the inside and the outside can be monitored

WeMo switch counting time ON

by adibacco on ‎07-22-2015 09:38 AM

I think it would be a nice feature to know how much time the WeMo switch was ON during last day, last week, last month. 

The WeMo switch could also be programmed to inhibit switching ON if a certain threshold of "ON time" has been reached.


If you have a child, consider how useful this would be to stop the PLAYSTATION after, for example, two hours per day of usage.

Refrigerator monitor

by memorybank on ‎07-10-2015 07:47 AM

An Insight swithch (always on, no switch) with two teperature probes (preferrably wired) to monitor refrigerator / freezer temperatures and power usage. Will always default to 'on' after a power outage or network failure. I am taking delivery of a new refrigerator today and would find this very usefull.

Add Random Away Rule

by db on ‎07-09-2015 02:39 PM
I would like to be able to set an Away rule that selected switches can be randomly turned on & off for a specified period of time to give the appearance of being home and moving about the house.

For instance: Of my five WeMo switches, select three of them to randomly turn on for 30 min between the hours of 4 PM to 11 PM where one of them would be on during that time frame.

Currently the only way to accomplish something similar as far as I know is to create several independent rules, all of which must be activated.

Please consider (along with adding HomeKit support.

Wemo Home Security System

by Jasper76 on ‎07-07-2015 12:39 AM


Just started buying into the Wemo Suite, with both lights, motion sensors and a Camera HD. But I'm missing what seems like a logical next step, namely a home security systems that bridges all of the above (as well as the coming door/window sensors).



What I'm interested in is a hub (with a LOUD siren) that you can arm/disarm with either your phone or preferably a token of some sort (to my kids or wife who doesn't want to fiddle about with apps all the time). For the token I guess you could use the key chain sensor. 


I've been looking at providers such as iSmartAlarm and Scout Alarm, and they have much of the same hardware as Belkin but with the added vulnerability of being startup companies, so I'm not too keen to risk placing my bet on them, especially as I would much rather add to my current eco-system than start up a new. 


I don't know if that's in the pipeline as it seems like such a logical next step, but otherwise please, please consider doing at least a Home Security Hub that can bind together your different sensors/devices and add a siren/notification. Oh, and stickers for the window (as theses are as much a deterent).

New Rule for Routers

by kimbakat on ‎06-30-2015 02:51 PM

While running a network or for home.....it would be REALLY helpful to setup a function to turn a device OFF and then ON again :30 seconds to 1 minute later.


This is great for rebooting a router from a remote location AND/OR as an option for someone to reboot a router if it's in a locked server room.


Please let me know if this is possible now.

We looked for creating this custom rule in the app..but could not find the feature. Thanks!!!

Allow a pre-set power cycle option

by marklyn on ‎06-12-2015 09:35 PM

I'd be highly interested in a wemo product that let me power cycle it from the internet with an 'auto-on' option.  I take long trips away from home and I regularly check in on my home automation (alarm, a/c, cameras, etc.).  Sometimes there is a problem that only a physical power cycle to the router will fix.

It would be very handy to have an option where you could tell the wemo insight plug to power down the plug for say, 1 minute, then power it back up.  That would reset my router and allow me access to everything again.

Light Sensor.

by NZ_user on ‎06-09-2015 11:57 AM

What i need is to be able to switch / control the lights on when it's starts to get dark and off again when it gets light - not just when the sunrises and/or sunset's. So a room sensor (idealy built into the light switch) that monitors the light level and switches on/off inline with a set value. Some form of Hysterisis needs to be added so that (for instance) people walking past the sensor that cast a shadow does not trigger the lights on/off. My plan is for when it gets dark (to a selective level) the curtains are drawn automatically and the lights fade to on...
