Meet the Wemo App for Android™

The Wemo App lets you control your home appliances and electronics through your Wemo® devices using an Android™ phone or tablet.  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 your Wemo ON from anywhere you can connect to the internet.


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

App Features
This 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/restore them to factory defaults.
User-added image 
NOTE:  Some routers have a maximum amount of devices they will support.  Therefore, some Wemo users may see other devices drop off their network, or their network may limit the number of Wemo devices they can connect.
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 active and inactive rules you have created for your Wemo devices will be listed here.

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.
