Sorry if this has been suggested. I like the idea of the long press extending the functionality of the switch/dimmer, but long presses currently only work with other Wemo devices. Long press functionality would be infinitely more useful if long presses could be shared with HomeKit. If the HomeKit API doesn’t natively support the long press then each Wemo switch/dimmer that supports long press could be presented as TWO devices to HomeKit: short press on/off, and long press on/off. Then the long press can, for example, trigger a HomeKit scene.
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.
Please make inwall outlets. They should be in two parts. Why? Because changing outlets is horrible. Making them two parts will allow Wemo to put all the brains and controllers in an outershell that can be pulled out and replaced when something like the WiFi chip becomes outdated. Also will make repairing broken units way more user friendly by not requiring to turn off power at the breaker and not taking 20 minutes to do.
Being able to control lighting by voice or a tap activated switch would be a great boon for disabled individuals residing in assisted living facilities. The problem is that these residences have central wifi, not individual routers in each apartment. So the perfect solution of "smart" outlets, either paired with echo-type devices or just used with a phone or tablet app, just won't work. Is there a way around this problem?
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 office has the WEMO Mr. Coffee machine. I'd really like to configure a way to have it push alerts to a specific Slack channel only when a new pot of coffee has been brewed. While I am not a software engineer, I work at a custom software engineering consultancy. We tried this once before but ran into problems with the api not being fully built out at the time they attempted it. Has there been any update on the api that would allow for this to happen?
I would be nice if there was a option for a wemo Mini plug to never turn on the status light. and to expand on that maybe have a option to only turn it on for a certain amount of second after the plug was turn on. the main reason I am asking is I am using 2 of the plug in my baby bedroom to control and heater and humidifier, but the status light is a bit bright. I currently have them cover with white electrical tape.
Belkin has discontinued the production of the Wemo bulb, not sure why because they work great. Now for everyone who has a bunch of these bulbs they are left behind and to but Hue lights because the bulbs are not currently supported by the Wemo Bridge. What is the point of making a bridge if half the products are not even compatible with it?? This was a terrible business decision (to discontinue the bulbs and quit supporting them) because I’m now switching completely to Phillips Hue. I imagine most people will end up doing the same.
I would really like to have a single gang wall switch that is both a standard on / off switch but also has a wemo motion sensor built into it. This would be very helpful for smaller rooms, particuarlly bathrooms. It would allow you to automatically turn on / off lights and or fans based on motion without having to have a clunky adapter plugged into the wall.
In the automation rules set it would be great if you could syncronize the on / off of a wemo switch with another device. For example I have a light switch that controls a wall socket that I used to turn on a lamp. But in the same room there's another lamp that isn't on a switched wall socket but I have a wemo light bulb in it. It would be great if by pressing the wemo switch I could turn both on / off with a single press.
I'm using the Wemo insight to power a device that idles at around 200 watts. When it's performing it's full function it draws about 700 watts of power. I want to set up an IFTT email to trigger if the device fails and falls back to idle but the Insight won't let me because the highest the threshold will go is 99 watts. My device will never go below 99 watts even at idle. This would be really helpful functionality to add. Or, if there are any known work arounds that'd be great. Thanks.
