Meet the Wemo App for iOS

Control your Thermostat
Wemo works with Nest®.  Using the Wemo App, you can control your Nest Thermostat to save you from having to switch to another app.


How can I get it?

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.

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.
