Could there be a setting in the wemo app to swap the functionality of a Wemo Light Switch PRESS with LONG PRESS?


I like having physical light switches on bedroom walls for guests, accessible right when they step in a room.  However, I have rooms where the hardwired switch goes to an inconvenient outlet.  I can program the Wemo Light Switch LONG PRESS to toggle on/off a different outlet than the hardwired one controlled by a normal PRESS (via a Wemo Mini Smart Power Plug).  It would be great if I could just swap what a LONG PRESS does with what a normal PRESS does. 


Maybe there's some other way -- other than rewiring the room.  Thanks all

Dimmer level adjust

by CheersN on ‎03-09-2019 12:11 PM

It would be beneficial to change the dimmer output % by time schedule. Once the light is on let's say 6pm, I want the light to adjust its output to 50% at say 720pm. Right now to do this the first rule must turn light off at 720,,then a second rule turns it back on 1 minute later due to App minimum switching scheduling and sets light to 50% until whatever turn off time. It would be advantageous to leave light active and just a timer rule to set a new light level percentage.Kind of like a schedule within the rule. If light on, then if time A set level to X percent. An if once statement. The primary rule will turn the light off.

Hard to impress your sweetheart when it's not a smooth transition,, just sayin...

Is it possible to create a rule option that will automatically turn off the device, if the device's "Now" watts are BELOW a set threshold? Is it possible to create a rule option that will automatically turn off the device, if the device's "Now" watts are ABOVE a set threshold? If not, could you add this functionality to the Wemo app?

Granular Access Control

by TheWraith ‎02-25-2019 04:13 PM - edited ‎02-25-2019 04:22 PM

I have numerous Wemo MiniOutlets throughout my home.  I don't want ALL outlets accessible to ALL people with a smartphone who install the Wemo app while on my wireless network.  Granular access controls is needed for this sort of home integrated product. 

- I might only want to give my children access to the Wemo outlets IN THEIR ROOM - not ALL Wemo outlets.  Maybe I don't even want my children seeing I have a "basement s.e.x dungeon", let alone the Wemo units named "S.e.x Dungeon Lamp", etc.

- I don't want my friend who uses my wifi to come over, install Wemo, and have access to ALL my home automation.

The fact there is NO authenticated controls over this product is appauling.  I am also an Arlo user.  I create/add accounts I want to add to my Arlo system.  I can select which cameras each account has access to, whether they are readonly accounts, admin accounts, can rename or reconfigure the cameras or the system at large.

With Wemo?

...just install the app and WELCOME TO FULL CONTROL!

This sort of lack of security should never have allowed the product to leave the development stage.  It would be a security best practice to setup a unique VLAN/SSID for "Wemo Equipment" in the home and have that wireless network NOT your "client access network".  Of course, then you lose the convenience of using your smartphone to control the Wemo equipment without diassociating from the normal network, connecting to the "Wemo network", etc.

Belkin needs to create access based controls for this product.  The ability to select which units which accounts have access to either control and/or configure, along with if they have rights to configure "rules" for their devices, is a must have feature.  How can you deploy "smart home automation " products without authentication and access controls?

What is this... the 90s?

EDIT:  Seriously?  We're adults...we can't post comments with the word "s.e.x" in them?  Ridiculous.

If you find out that the Norton remove and reinstall tool is not working, then you should try the following solutions for a quick fix. The tool can help you with the installing and uninstalling procedure of Norton products and should be seen as a utility, which needs to be repaired on an urgent basis.


  • Ensure the net connection and see if it is stable
  • Disable the firewall protection
  • Install the latest updates and update device drivers
  • You can also again install the tool if nothing works.

Still faced problems and feel that the tool is not working the way it used to do before even after reinstalling, you must take guidance from norton customer care right away.

WEMO Dimmer

by txmmoore on ‎02-20-2019 04:25 AM

I really like the wemo dimmer, but it would be a nice feature on the "fade out" if you could select how long the fade out takes place.  For example, if you have the fade out selected, and the fade out time is 5 minutes, then it will take 5 minutes for the
light to fade to zero from the point the light is sitting.  I have a living room light that I have turn off every night around 7 pm and I would like for it to slowly fade for about 15 minutes.

Fan Switch

by kylecwhite on ‎02-07-2019 04:19 PM



Are there any plans to create a new Wemo swtich to control a fan and light combo? Similar to the recently release Lutron Casseta switch?


I would want 6-7 of these in my house and would complete the transition to smart switches.

I have all of my outside lights on WEMO switches and I have the Ring doorbell. I live in kind of a rural area, so I like having my yard lit up when the Ring detects motion. I used to have IFTTT turn my outside lights on between 11pm and 5am whenever it sensed motion. The problem is there is nothing to tell them to shut off after, so once the lights came on they would stay on all night. This happens 3-4 days out of the week. What I would love to see is a setting that I can use that will allow me to do something like this:

Switches - All Switches
Time Active - 11:00pm - 5:00am
Auto Shutoff - 2 min

This way anytime the lights I choose come on in between 11pm and 5 am would automatically shut off after 2 min. Hope his makes sense.

Solar Switch

by txmmoore on ‎01-29-2019 05:04 AM

How about the development of a solar switch?  Have it gauge the amount of light it sees and then activate wemo switches.  You could apply the app so that depending on sunrise, sunset, or perhaps major storm where cloud coverage is bad it could active 1 or more wemo devises?
