Manually entering the Apple HomeKit code

The Apple® HomeKit®​ code is used by the Apple Home app to detect your Wemo® devices as an accessory and add it to the Apple Home app.  The Apple HomeKit code is provided in the Quick Install Guide and can also be found at the back of the Wemo device. 

IMPORTANT:  The HomeKit code is unique to each Wemo device.  If you have more than one of the same Wemo device, make sure it matches the Wemo you are setting up.  For more information about Apple HomeKit-supported Wemo products, click
