Wemo Setup

Before you begin with setting up your Wemo® device, here are a few things to consider:
 

  • You must have the latest Wemo app installed on your mobile device and a Wemo account.  For instructions on how to create an account, click here.
  • Verify if your Wemo supports Apple® HomeKit® by checking if there is a HomeKit code label at the back or side of the device.  For more instructions, click here.
  • Your mobile device must be connected to the same Wi-Fi where you want to install your Wemo.  Make sure to have your Wi-Fi password ready.  To learn how to check your Wi-Fi settings when on a Belkin router, click here.  If you want to change your Wi-Fi settings using the router's dashboard, click here.
  • You may need to disable the Smart network switch (sometimes called Mobile Network Switch or Auto-switch to mobile network) on your Android™ device.  If you're using an iOS device, you may need to disable Wi-Fi Assist instead.  To learn more, click here.
