HI WEMO team! Aside from the 3-way+ switches one of the other needs is something for bathrooms and other older home installations. I have two spots in my home where a single gang double switch would be needed.
The first is in the bathroom where it's one switch for the light and the other for the fan, the other has the interior lights and the porch light. One could potentially try to rip out the old gang box and put a double gang in or cut a new hole in to install a second switch, but a solution like this would be much cleaner and definitely preferred.
It's 2018 and there's still no dedicated iPad app. Is there any light at the end of the tunnel for this? I'm trying to flush mount iPads to have wall-mounted lighting control and I'm stuck using these blown up iPhone app interfaces.
I feel as though you guys are really limiting your potential here.
Please add a feature to the APP to create a folder, name the folder and assign a device to a folder. I currently have 11 devices and, as I continue to automate my house, I will soon have 20 or more. I would like to create a folder called security and put all my security related devices in it. Another fold to contain fans, etc.
I'm using the WeMo Mini Smart plugs to control multiple lamps throughout the house. I'd like to controll a single room with a button and to do so I'd need to group a few of the Mini Smart Plugs into one. This is not currently an option on the Phone App. It appears the only grouping options is for their LED bulbs...
This would also make creating IFTTT rules much simpler as currently you can only select either "All Devices" or a single device.
An additonal help would be to have their own widgets so we don't have to open up the app every time we want to toggle lights on and off (or make IFTTT rules).
It would be very helpful for WEMO to develop 3-way switches that can be used to control a single light from multiple locations. I am surprised that WEMO does not already have this type of switch in its offerings. The lack of 3- and 4-way light switches forces users including myself to other manufacturers. Leviton has this functionality in their wifi capable switches. Their switch can have up to 4 additional locations besides the main switch. The other 4 locations require companion switches that are only about $27.95 each with the main 3-way costing about $45.00. Please develop this if you are not already doing so. If need be, purchase the Leviton Model DW15S-1BZ main switch and the DD0SR-DLZ companion switch and reverse engineer your own.
Supporting two or more locations (such as home and work or two homes) would be amazing. Just add login credentials just like ring and ever other app out there. I love the switches and the new dimmer switch. Besides bug fixes and fixing firmware issues this would make it a solid product.
I have a Wemo switch on most single pole light switches in my home. I would love to wire up my 3 and 4 easy switches, but you don't support it. Please fill this need. You could use ad-hoc wireless communication to communicate the state of each switch to the others in a group.
I believe there are multiple reasons that Belkin should provide a web interface for managing an indivisulas WeMo network. Here are some of the reasons I would like it, I am sure others have some good reasons also.
1)Cell phones become obsolete too quickly to be used as the only manager for a product that should be expected to be in use for many years.
2)I use my WeMo device in remote locations, some are hours away but accessable remotely. If I lose/break/upgrade my phone, it is unrealsitic to have to travel to all of my remote sites to get my network back on my phone. A web interface would not only allow for me to continue to control the network, but could possibly allow for me to push my network to the Belkin App on my new phone.
3)Phone operating systems update so frequently, requiring frequent application updates, which can only lead to issues for us users.
4)Belkin should have no issues with constructing a web interface considering they have been in the networking game for years.
Wemo maker is one of the best solutions for smart gate and garage door openers on the market, with the compatibility of wemo bridge it would be the best! Come on guys please re consider its extinction and add it back to your line up.. While addressing the KRACK issue would be perfect! please please please add it to the wemo bridge to work with homekit , some of us really love its brilliance.
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.
I found this thread once before and it is the same problem that I have but there was no osted solution. The app works for on/off and dimming and the switch turns on and off but the dimmer slide on the switch doesn't work. Any input?
Microsoft Cortana supports a number of other smart home lines like ecobee, Hue, TP-Link Kasa, and others. Belkin, please make a Cortana skill for Wemo devices so I can control my Wemo switches like I could with your competitors. I can't imagine it would be that hard to port the existing Alexa skill over to Cortana.
