 Can a long press action be added that can disable/enable a motion sensor rule? An example for the need of this feature is if you have a study/office that maybe doubles as a guest room. During normal usage, you would like the light to go on when you are active in the room, but on the occasion you have guests staying overnight, you could just long-press the switch to disable the motion sensor rule so that they can manually toggle the lights when they need them.

Multi button controller

by EddieSitt on ‎06-20-2017 01:18 PM
Can Wemo make a multi button controller?
It can be a low voltage controller that speaks to the light switches in a different location.
I guess it can be a wall mountable app. (Controller)

Embedded bluetooth phone check

by PER on ‎06-16-2017 02:19 PM

We can now pair a bluetooth phone with hand sets in the house. What about making house phone that will allow you to control wemo devices. Multiple hand sets if you go to bed, instead of carrying your cell with you everywhere have the house phone set check what's on and turn it off. Also small video screen if you want to check the cameras. Set up buzz patterns for the motion detector.

I am using the wemo maker on my battery monitor as a trigger to turn on wemo switches for hot water etc when batteries are full on my off grid set up.
A feature that would be amazing is to use the standby mode of one wemo switch as the trigger for another switch to utilise solar power during the day and not overload the inverter.

Thank a million if do a app update to include this feature

Poor performance

by Edinburgh_lad on ‎06-14-2017 01:55 PM

I'm actually beginning to hate your Wemo Light.


I'm yet to have a seamless firmware update procedure - every time I try to do it, there's a problem (it doesn't matter if bulb/main unit are near the router or not). 


Do you actually check if these firmware updates are ready to be released?


Thank God you no longer make this product - fewer people put out of their misery when using Wemo bulbs!

Hello. I received this product. I don't know if it is safe to install to replace my current light switch. My existing light switch had one black wire and one white wire coming from the wall, each connected to one terminal of the single (not multi) light switch. I saw this post and want to know if this is safe/would work for me.But I don't have any ground wire coming out of the wall for the existing light switch, just a black wire and a whilte wire.

1. Black wire from the wall switch to WeMo black wire
2. White wire from the wall switch to WeMo switch black wire (lightening bolt)
3. Connect both the WeMo white Neutral wire and ground wire together to the copper ground wire

Wemo dimmer scenes

by hillsy85 on ‎06-06-2017 09:49 AM

Having waited patiently for and purchased 5 Wemo dimmer switches for my house, while I love the basic functionality of them, I am a little disappointed in the lack of "scenes" within the Wemo App that could be triggered by Alexa / IFFT functions.


For example, I want to be able to say "Alexa, turn on/trigger evening lights" and that would turn on dimmer A, B and C to preset dim percentages, or "Alexa, trigger bedtime" which would turn off all lights except the bedroom light.


I would like to think that smarter people than I are already working on this and will be in a future update, but if not... WHY NOT!?

Issue #1


When I first got my Alexa I bought two light bulbs.  I then learned I needed to get the little wall hub.  None of it worked well so I took it back.  Now I have some smart plugs two and one insight plug.  None of them need any type of router/hub etc.  


My issue is, is when I enable the WeMo skill it finds those old lights that I don't have anymore and the names conflict with items I do have now with Hue.


Is there some way to purge that info?  I've deleted and reinstalled the App on the iPhone to no avail.  My only fix is to not enable the skill.


Issue #2


When I go to remote access theirs all kinds of devices I don't have anymore.  I can only disable them but not forget them.  Is there anyway to get rid of them?  I have like 4 Brian iPads but I can't tell which is which. I only have one now.

I know google has recently made changes to how OAuth works for security purposes, but the main probelm is when trying to link wemo with ifttt, using google sign in, i get a 403 error dissalowed user agent. Does any one know of a work around for this or does belkin have a team updating their app to fix this issue or maybe if its an ifttt baised issue

Issue with LED lights misbehaving

by idkpmiller on ‎06-02-2017 06:00 PM



I have mongst other devices three hallway Wemo LED lights that I call Ent 1 Light, Ent 2 Light and Ent 3 Light.

I group these together in the Wemo app in a group called 'Entrance Lights'.

I then use this group for turning on/off and setting the dimmer using Openhab 2 and Alexa.


This was all working really well until I had some issues with Ent 2 Light playing up and I made the decision to swap it out for a spare LED light as a troubleshooting exercise; oh boy did that screw things up.


I have since returned the original LED back amd removed the new one but I still have issues.


Currently, I have a Lighting Group called 'Entrance Lights' and a single LED called Ent 2 Light that I cannot get to join the group.

Openhab is still discoverying the replacement light that is no longer installed.


The old LED ID which is incorrectly discovered is 0-231502B010090F:94103EA2B278795C


How do I sort this out? And for future reference if I have a bad bulb what is the correct way to replace it so it simply slips right in????

Blink function for IFTTT

by witsend11541 on ‎05-31-2017 11:17 AM
I am deaf and I use Wemo light switches to notify me when someone rings my Skybell. Currently the Wemo light switch only supports turn on, turn off, turn on then off (which only counts as one blink if they were off), turn off then on, and toggle.

Please add a blink function to IFTTT- it should blink at least 3 times, 5 is good, returning to the original state. Even if I'm in an adjacent room, I will notice this, where I won't for one blink, especially in the daytime. Philips Hue can do this, 10 times, which is a bit much.

I have integrated two Wemo Makers to my alarm system(Bosch Solution 16). One maker monitors for alarm activation events and pushes ios notifications to household iphones. The second maker monitors alarm system armed status, when the system is armed all lights and appliances on standby are automatically turned off.

Ceiling Fan Control

by jedwards on ‎05-28-2017 07:49 AM

Would love to see you guys release a ceiling fan controller to replace the wall switch.







Just recently bought the WeMo Mini Smart Plug and set it up with my espresso machine. The scheduling and the auto-off features are both great ideas! It would be super if we could use them simultaneously.


From what I can tell, currently, there is only the option to have the plug either switch on and off for a given scheulde (multiple schedules are possible) OR have the plug automatically shut off after some time interval.


Implementing support for both should be relatively easy with the following logic:

  • When the switch flips on, set the auto-off timer
    • When the auto-off timer fires, check to see if the plug should be on or off for the current time
      • If it should be off, automatically turn it off
      • If it should be on, do nothing (plug stays on until scheduled off time)





Wemo Dimmer IFTTT Channel?

by Gump0r on ‎05-25-2017 05:27 PM

I purchased the WEMO Dimmer recently after waiting patiently for it's release to market. So far I have been pleased with it in general, but the lack of an IFTTT channel for the Dimmer has halted my ability to be as creative as I wanted to be with it and been dissapointing for the $80 sticker price of the device.


When will there be an IFTTT Wemo Dimmer specific channel? The Wemo Light Switch channel will not do what I am primarily looking for.


Specifically I wanted to be able to control:

  • Dimmer % amounts
    • It's movie time! Dim the lights to 10%
  • Fade in
    • Allow us to have it turn on and fade up to x%
    • Only if the light is already off
  • Fade out
    • Allow us to have it fade off from the current level
    • Only if the light is alread on
  • Turn on (Available on Light Switch)
    • Basic turn on to the last dim level
  • Turn off (Available on Light Switch)
    • Basic turn off from the current dim level
  • Toggle (Available on Light Switch, but not wth fade option)
    • If on, turn off. If off, turn on.
    • Allow a flag to have it toggle fade in or toggle fade out


Warm regards,

WeMo Maker board

by RogerWemo on ‎05-25-2017 02:47 PM

Can we please have a WeMo maker Board only?

It would be great to have a wide range power input 5 - 15 volts and a SMA connector for theWiFi antenna.

This would allow us to incorporate it in other projects or a weather proof housing.

.... set all my devices to a pre-defigned state.  


for example, the "I'm going to bed button" - turn the bedroom lights off on a 30 minute fade, turn the lights outside off, turn the living room dimmer to low.... etc.


I find myself each night going through the routeen of changing the status of the same devices, a one touch button would make the interface so much more friendly.

Light/fan switch

You need to add wall switch that works with a combo fan and light switch
