Setting up the Wemo Doorbell on your Apple Home network

The Wemo Smart Video Doorbell, WDC010 is designed to work with your Apple® Home network.  To set up and begin using the Wemo doorbell, you will need an iOS device supporting iOS 12 or higher that has the Apple Home app. 

After you have connected it to your home wiring and turned power back ON, the Wemo doorbell will boot into setup mode.  When the status light and status bar are both blue, you can begin setup. 


Using NFC Setup 

If your iOS device supports NFC, you can use this for a quick and easy setup. 

 
Step 1:  Unlock your iOS device and hold it near the doorbell.  The Wemo Doorbell's NFC transmitter is located between the LED status bar and the LED status light.  Depending upon your iOS device model, you may need to move it up or down slowly to active NFC setup.

Step 2:  Once detected, a setup prompt will appear.  Tap Continue to add to your home network.  The Apple Home app will take over and continue setup for you. Simply follow any on screen prompts.  Once the Home app finishes setup, you can begin customizing and using your Wemo Doorbell.
 
IMPORTANT:  If you are using the chime bypass connector or not using a doorbell chime at all, please leave the Chime Doorbell setting in the Home app set to OFF.  Turning it ON when not using the Doorbell Powerkit can damage your Wemo Doorbell. 
 

Using HomeKit code Setup 

If your iOS device does not support NFC, you can use the HomeKit® setup code located in the quick start guide that came with your Wemo doorbell.  If you misplaced this code, you can also find it on the back of the doorbell.

IMPORTANT:  Your doorbell will need to be connected to power for setup.  If you are using the code off of the back of the doorbell, make sure that you connect it back to power and it enters setup mode before trying setup.

 
Step 1:  Open the Apple Home ap and tap on the plus icon in the top right hand corner. 

Step 2:  Open the Quick Start Guide that came in the package with your Wemo Doorbell and locate the HomeKit setup code to scan it with your devices camera.
