I've foolishly sunk almost $150 into this crap, none of it works, the company obviously doesn't give a sheet about it's customers (note that there are zero responses here to customer questions...).


Really, how hard is this, you morons at Belkin?  All I want to do is TURN ON A FECKING LIGHT BULB!  You can't even get THAT right?  Gawd, you are idiots...


Fine.  Belkin, I'm done with you dishonest, incompetent assoles - you'll never get another dime from me as long as I live.


Can anyone suggest a competing brand that actually works?  THANK YOU.

New features to light switch app

by Anonymous on ‎06-03-2014 01:02 PM
We need a dimmer function to be added to the app (not sure if the hardware will allow this).

More importantly, a widget feature to control lights on the android home screen would be great! That way you could turn on and off from the android home screen.

When I'm on my PC, it's pretty irritating that there isn't a web browser or client version for windows. Right now there's only for ios and droid. If you're trying to reach the largest client base, won't it make sense to a windows version too>

Wemo Master App Switch

by Simonc715 on ‎12-25-2015 05:37 PM

Would be great to have a master switch on the iPhone App whereby you can assign various devices to the switch and with a single click switch all devices on/off - such as lamps

Has anyone else had any trouble thier Wemo bulbs turning on outside of the times I have set.


I made a rule to turn my group (2 bulbs) on at 20:15 and turn off 22:15 which works, but they also turn on again at about 22:45 and do not turn off again.


Why does this happen?

WeMo Controlled Door Lock

by CSD on ‎06-05-2014 01:43 PM

Would love to see a WeMo-controlled lock that will enable user to remotely controll visitors' access to property.  Ideally, it would also send an alert when door has been opened and by whom.  


I had pre-ordered one from a different company but cancelled becuase it would've required physical changes to be made to my door.  Plus, since I'm already using WeMo in my home, I'd prefer one that is on the same platform...

Use Amazon's new IRL Dash Buttons for WeMo bulb on/off fobs

Group Commands

by WEMO Maker Inventor on ‎05-28-2014 08:47 PM

I'd like to be able to group on/off commands with scenes.  One button called "all off".  Something like that.

Cycling colors

A way to create a rule in either IFTT or Wemo's rules to cycle colors in the RGBW strips or Gardenspot?

3-way switches

Status: Under Review
by coreymcl on ‎06-18-2014 01:29 PM

I for one have a number of light switches I would love to replace with WEMO's however the switches in question are 3-way. While I understand if the WEMO devices don't talk to each other, but neither do the analog switches I have today. Please consider adding 3 way switches this way your customer won't have to look at other products such as z-wave devices. 

Thanks for the consideration.

Future Product - Power Strip

Status: Under Review
by Community Manager on ‎07-26-2012 01:00 PM

Love the concept of your single switch, but let's face it, I have more power cords than outlets. Unless I rewire my house to have more electrical plugs, your single switch isn't going to cut it to make my house fully (or semi) automated. It would be really cool if you had a power strip that would allow you to control each individual outlet. That way, I can still plug in out of my electrical gadgets yet control each one individually. Now that's something I would invest money in...

I used several of these devices to overcome issues with electronics while away from a 2nd home (parents).   I use my phone for my residence and my wife's phone for the parents.  But after buying some for a third location, I can't even see Wemos using the app. 


Interestingly, In three different locations where I also have wireless cameras these DLink register to their network and ALLOW cameras from these different areas to be seen and controlled from one screen - I am able to operate devices in 3 homes.  I don't think their scheme is proprietary so this could merely be a software update for Belkin.  

I'd like each Wemo device to include a temperature sensor that could be used to trigger events and provide insights. Take some examples:

- When temperature < 14 degrees c, turn on my electric blanket.

- When temperature > 28 degrees c, turn on fan.


This also allows us insights. Example:

- When we the central heating is on, the back room of the house is still 4 degreees cooler than the front rooms.

- Turning the heater up is using a lot more electricity but producing only a small temperature increase.


To provide these insights you'd really just want to see a graph of electricity usage, cost, and temperature.

Wemo Light Switch without Load wire

by fcallin on ‎10-22-2014 07:25 PM

I'm assuming I won't be able to use the wemo light switch in the outlet I wanted to. In the box I have a black, white and ground wire coming into the box. There is no load wore.  Am I correct to assume I can't use the Wemo light switch?

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.

netcam shutdown

by navedori on ‎01-23-2016 06:50 AM

Why does the camera stop working after 7-10 days? It has the power light on, but the IR LEDs do not respond and it does not connect over the internet.

Just can't get my weMo Switch to work.  Won't connect to my wireless connection in my home.  Got a Westell router.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

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.

3d touch wemo app

3D touch support for the IOS app would be useful.

Ceiling Fan Control

Status: Under Review
by pocketjacks on ‎06-02-2014 01:36 PM

It would be nice if Belkin were to partner with a manufacturer that already provides a wall plate ceiling fan control that could also tie into IFTTT.  Example such as "If the outside temp goes below 75 degrees, set the bedroom fan to low".  This way when it cools down while you're asleep, you won't be chilly because the fan is too high.
