Meet the Wemo App for iOS

The Wemo App lets you control your home appliances and electronics through your Wemo® devices using an Apple® iPhone® or iPad®.  Whether you want to turn OFF a light from bed, turn ON a fan from the couch or make sure your lights are ON before you come home at night, the Wemo App will work for you.

NOTE:  Your Wemo device must be successfully set up before you can configure it using the Wemo App.  To learn how, click here.
 

 
What can you do with it?
 
You Make The Rules
The Wemo App allows you to set Rules for your Wemo devices to follow, such as turning ON the lights in the evening so you never come home to a dark house again.
 
Control It Remotely
Using the Wemo App, you can turn ON your Wemo from anywhere as long as you are connected to the internet.
 


How can I get it?
 
You can download the Wemo App for free on the App Store® where you can also find reviews and up-to-date information on compatibility.

App Features
 
The Devices list
 
The Devices list is where you manage your Wemo devices.  Under this list are those devices that have been added to the network.  From here, you can turn your devices ON and OFF, make changes to the settings, and reset or restore them to factory defaults.
 
User-added image
 
NOTE:  Some routers have maximum number of supported devices or their network may limit the number of Wemo devices that can connect.  Therefore, you may see other devices disconnect from your network.
 
The Rules list
 
Another feature of your Wemo is the ability to create Rules to automate its functionality.  Using the Wemo App, you can create Rules for your Wemo device to follow.  All the enabled and disabled Rules you have created for your Wemo devices will be listed here.

NOTE:  If you are using the Apple Home app to manage your Wemo HomeKit™-supported products, make sure you are only using one app to manage the rules, otherwise you may run into rule conflicts.  To learn more about Wemo Rules, click here.
 
The SETTINGS page

Got questions?  We’ve got answers!
 
Q:  Do I need the Wemo App running all the time for my Wemo devices to work?
A:  No.  The Wemo App is only needed when you want to make a change to the Wemo or to control a Wemo via Wi-Fi or remote.
 
Q:  Can I control Wemo through a web interface?
A:  No. 
 
Q:  Can I use one Wemo App to control multiple locations?
A:  Not at this time.  A single Wemo App can only control Wemo devices at a single location.
