Setting up the 2nd gen Wemo Mini Smart Plug, F7C063 using an iOS mobile device

The Wemo® Mini Smart Plug, F7C063 lets you turn electronic devices ON or OFF from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet.  This home automation device uses your existing home Wi-Fi to provide wireless control of lamps, heaters, fans, and more.  You can even set schedules for your devices and control them remotely with an active mobile internet connection.  

The 2nd gen Wemo Mini comes with the Apple® HomeKit™ code that lets you control your Wemo Mini using the Apple Home app.  This article will guide you through steps in setting it up.

Before you begin: 
  • Know your default Wemo Wi-Fi name which is located on the product label at the back of the Wemo Mini.  The name will appear as Wemo.Mini.xxx, where xxx is the last three digits of the serial number. 
  • Determine if you have a 1st or 2nd gen Wemo Mini by checking if it has an Apple HomeKit code sticker at the back. 
  • Without sticker - 1st gen
