Control WeMo Switch with virtual device?

Question

Dear Fibaro Experts,

 

I would like to control my WeMo switches using the Home Center 2 (e.g. via virtual devices).

 

Belkin released a SDK (

) but it does not look like that there is a simple HTTP API that I could control with a LUA script.

 

My slow and not very reliable workaround is that I created a virtual device @ HC2. Once I turn the virtual device on / off it sends an email to my IFTTT account. As WeMo has a own IFTTT channel the email triggers IFTTT to send a turn on / off command to the WeMo cloud. This in turn sends the turn on / off command to the switch itself. In other words, twice around the world with 5-10 seconds delay to control a device that is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as my HC2

Does any of you have a solution?

 

I would appreciate your help and guidance.

 

Best regards,
Alex

No easy way, since available SDK only allows you to develop such features in an app, no way to do it via virtual device or scene.

Same issue here, would be nice if Fibaro properly supported IFTTT or better started to improve integration with other non-zwave products.

Not an official Channel from Fibaro, but the best solution so far.

hi, i've worked out how to do this with LUA directly to the wemo using a VD. Open a tcpsocket and send the xml directly to device.
