- How to create a Long Press rule for your Wemo®
Long Press rules allow your Wemo® Wi-Fi Smart Light Switch, F7C030 to control another Wemo device or a set of Wemo devices just by pressing the power button for 2 seconds.
Before creating a Long Press rule, ensure of the following:
What devices are compatible with this rule?
The Long Press rule can be set to control the following Wemo devices:
F7C027 – Wemo Switch
F7C029 – Wemo Insight
- F7C063 – Wemo Mini
- F7C059 – Wemo Dimmer
IMPORTANT: The Long Press rule can only be created and triggered by a Wemo Light Switch.
So where do I start?
Step 2: Tap on Long Press to open the rule creation screen.
- Toggle – Toggles the state of the device you want to control. This means if it is ON, it will turn it OFF, or if it is OFF it will turn it ON.
- Turn On – Will turn the device ON.
- Turn Off – Will turn the device OFF.
- Pretend Someone’s Home – Will enable the Away Mode rule.
Why can’t I give my Long Press rule a custom name?
A Long Press rule is different from other rules. Like other Wemo rules, a Long Press rule can control multiple Wemo devices at the same time. Unlike other rules though, a Wemo device can belong to only one Long Press rule at a time. Long Press rules do not have a specific time they are available to run, like other rules, and are active all day.
Your rule will be given a default name when created based on the Wemo device that triggers the rule and will immediately go active.
