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.

MAKER WORK WITH HOME BRIDGE

WeMo maker with home control PLEASE

Input Devices

by dbx on ‎04-04-2018 06:10 PM

WEMO has the output devices fairly well covered.  (light switch, dimmer switch, wall socket devices)

 

What I would like to see are input devices that can be used to trigger the existing output devices.......

     Bring back a motion detector. (indoor and outdoor)

     A temperature sensor that could be used to control output devices through rules.

     A hand held single function or multifunction remote (use WEMO without a phone while on home wifi network)

     A panic button that could be used to turn on several lights with one button push.

     A humidity sensor.

     And most of all......   produce the WEMO Maker again.

     

Have an option to keep the dimmer Light bar to stay lit (blue) when light is off. So light switch can be found easier in the dark.

It also will give it a high tech look.

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.

We want 3-way (multi-location switches)

by bholl on ‎12-23-2017 02:09 PM

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.

When on the same wifi as my wemo device, I'd expect to be able to control said device even when the cloud service is unreachable.

 

Other forum posts list a number of paid 3rd party apps which allow this, so I wouldn't expect many technical challenges in implementing this feature.

3 and 4-way switches -- please!

by TheQ on ‎12-09-2017 09:57 PM
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.

Wemo device name vs Home Name

by hursey on ‎03-28-2018 07:22 PM

OMG... EVERY TIME I ope the Wemo app I am asked whether I want to use the Wemo Device name or the Apple Home device name...EVERY TIME! Can the app just please remember my preference or give me the option to have it stop asking?? So Annoying!

Make Wemo Bulbs HomeKit Compatible

by Quazar on ‎02-23-2018 06:54 AM
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.

Power Strip

by DancingBrook on ‎02-16-2018 08:59 AM

Get on it as others already are.

 

And make them all HomeKit compatible, without an extra purchase.

 

From a discussion thread:
I would like to see a WeMo power strip.  I would invision the following:

 

1. 110VAC with fuse protection

2. ~6 outlets

3. Each outlet can be controlled

   a. together (on/off) e.g. master power

   b. individualy (on/off), each outlet seprately

   c. in groups (on/off), e.g. group 1 = outlet 1, 2 and 3, group 2, outlet 4, 5 and 6.  Group 3 outlet 1 and 6.  

4. Groups can have timers/rules et against them

5. Allow proper integratino with IFTTT, more than 1 product to be interfaced with IFTTT

 

Devices are Not Available

by RonFromPbg on ‎01-08-2018 05:11 PM

Two Wemo Smart Plug/Outlets installed and linked to Google Home.  Worked originally.  Then one stopped responding and the other a acouple of weeks later.  Verbal commands result in "It looks like the <device name> isn't available right now.".  Have unlinked Wemo from Google home and relinked it, several times (including today after the indication that all systems were patched).

Have asked Google Home to sync which does not result in anything working.

This issue has persisted since mid-November.

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.

Index my devices alphabetically

by Fred on ‎11-26-2017 06:41 PM
Wemo devices, in the 1st page of the app, should be alphabetical to make them easier to find. Listing is now “last installed at the bottom of the list “. Belkin, Please do this

WeMo app

by txmmoore on ‎03-12-2018 10:20 AM

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.

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.

Dimmer Light bar as night light?

by Gc1976 on ‎03-02-2018 05:15 PM
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.

Wemo and Apple Homekit integration

by Mjrgab on ‎07-15-2015 07:12 PM
I think all ios Wemo user want HomeKit integration. We want to use Siri for control our wemo device.

WEMO Dimmer - allow night mode to turn off Dimmer LEDs

by YVR ‎02-18-2018 01:25 AM - edited ‎02-18-2018 01:32 AM

Hi Wemo team, 

 

whilst the dimmers are great, the constant small light indicators on the switch can be really annoying, especially in the bedroom. 

 

Pls. add the functionality to turn this off in the app, so that the lights only come on when the dimmer is actually used. Ideally, this function should be incorporated into the night mode, so it can be timed.

 

Thanks!

app update...

by dmor on ‎12-17-2017 10:53 PM

The rules option needs to be able to tell me at a glace which mini switch is using what rules intead of oppeing each rule to remember what switch does that rule.  Very frustration if you have like 7 mini plugs at 2 locations
