How to add and remove a scene in the Apple Home app for your Wemo® Bridge and Wemo Mini

Scenes let you control accessories simultaneously with a single tap.  For instance, you can create a scene called "Arrive home" that turns on all of the lights and unlocks the front door when you arrive.  When a scene is no longer relevant to your preferences, you may delete it from your Apple Home app.  To know how, follow the instructions below.
 
NOTE:  These steps are applicable for the Wemo Bridge and the Wemo Mini.
