Updating the firmware of your Wemo® device

All computer programs, excluding firmware, require an operating system to function.  Updating your Wemo® device's firmware to the latest version keeps it running smooth and gives you one less thing to worry about.

New firmware releases are posted on the Wemo Firmware Server.  Your Wemo reaches out to this server daily and compares your current firmware version to what is the newest on the server.  If an update is available, a pop-up message will appear on your Wemo App to prompt you to install it.

IMPORTANT:  If you are using the Apple Home app with your Wemo Mini, you must continue to update the firmware of your Wemo devices through the Wemo App when a firmware update is available.

Before you update the firmware of your Wemo device, check the following:
  • Your Wemo App should be up-to-date.  Click here to download the latest version from the App Store®.  For Android users, click here.
  • Your Wemo device or devices should be properly set up.  For more information, click here.
  • Your Wemo device should be powered ON.
  • Your Wemo device and the mobile device where your Wemo App is installed should be connected to the internet.
  • Additionally, if your Wemo Mini has a HomeKit code, you can set it up with the Apple Home app.  If your Wemo Mini does not have a HomeKit code, you will need to set it up with the Wemo App.  To know how, click here.

NOTE:  Wemo App images may vary depending on the device (iOS or Android) being used. 
Step 1:  Open the User-added image App.

Step 2:  Update your firmware through one of the following methods:
  • If a firmware update is available, you'll be prompted by a pop-up window.  Tap Yes to proceed.
NOTE:  If you select Not Now, the pop-up window will appear again after 24 hours.
