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 on 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 drop off 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.
