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.

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


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 on 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:  Can I control Wemo through a web interface?
A:  No. 
Q:  Can I use one Wemo App to control multiple locations?
