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!!!

Is this Sensor rugged enough that it could detect when the mailbox is opened or closed if put inside the mailbox?

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...

Wemo lamp socket

by ssc1478 on ‎06-08-2015 05:34 PM

It would be awesome to have a replacement lamp socket that is wemo. The socket could be turned on manually like the traditional way, or controlled via wemo app.  Lamp sockets are very easy to replace - most DIY folks would not be intimidated.

Trigger logs

by insideout on ‎06-08-2015 06:36 AM
I'd like to see the ability to see a trigger log in the wemo App especially for the away mode. I know the ifttt can do this but it means logging into another app or logging into something on the web. Be easier in one place.

rule option of LED bulbs or Switch

by WeMoIan on ‎06-07-2015 07:33 AM

Can you make an option for a rule action  to have a LED blub flash on and off for say 5 seconds when motion is triggered?  I have been using IFTT to notify me by SMS when my cat is at the front door (IFFT motion sensor on camera) but sometime I miss the text so it would be also good if it could flash a Wemo LED light bulb several times as a visual alert in additon to the SMS?  This could also be useful as a visual doorbell for the hearing impaired.

I wanted a way to turn off the Internet if the kids had not finished their homework. After some study I added a second router for a second home network. And then put a WeMo wi-Fi switch so that I could turn it off at midnight and back on at 6 AM automatically. I've then equipped my wife's phone and my phone with the app to turn it off or on manually when the kids complete their homework.

Additional Trigger in the Wemo App

by BurghDOC on ‎05-28-2015 07:40 AM
Please add a wall switch being turned 'on' and a wall switch being turned 'off' as triggers to list list available in the app. Also add the ability to toggle a switch (change the state to the opposite) as a response. This would allow setting up three way switch applications. Wiring is changed so the one switch controls the light. The other is not connected to any output. It just acts as a trigger for the master. I currently use this function through IFTTT, but there is a delay that is unpleasent... I can live with the slight delay I experiance such as when using a Wemo motion to trigger a wall switch.
0 Kudos

<p>I just got into WEMO devices and I love them. I invision replacing all my wall switches with new WEMO ones but I can begin to really consider that without Dim capability built into the switch. I have many 3 way and even a 4 way switch so it would be even better if it had support for that as well. To go just one step further, couldn't it measure power consumption of whatever the switch is powering Smiley Happy</p>
