Wemo Insight Switch with Google Home and IFTTT – Setup and Working

The Wemo Insight Switch gets setup and connected to my home network. From there, I get the Wemo Insight Switch connected to Google Home and the Google Home application. Finally, I get the Wemo Switch connected to IFTTT (If This Then That) and make sure that it’s ready for all of our future home automation.

The Wemo Insight Switch is a smart home automation power outlet that comes with a power monitor capability. It’s capable of being a monitor for device power usage. It’s also capable of interfacing with Google Home and IFTTT applications as part of the overall capability of this smart device.

WeMo has produced the Insight Switch as a bit of a power monitoring device, with the opportunity to automate.

IFTTT is one of our favorite home automation applications and it’s used to connect to the Wemo Switch as well. Once all of these devices are connected and ready to be used in your home for automation, we leave you with the thought of our next video being about an automated Sump Pump (or any pump, really).

    Hi. Is there a way to trigger an event based on how much energy the insight plug at any given time. I would like to establish if an appliance is on standby or not and then accordingly send a trigger to IFTTT

    I think this needs an up, menus aren’t the same when you go to add a device in google home. By this step the Wemo device is already added so it’s off its own network and when you go to add a device in google home it wants you to connect to the devices network which is now gone because it’s added in the wemo app. In the wemo app you can try to connect to ifttt but it gives you a PIN number and says pick a channel. I have several type of devices so don’t know which one the pin relates. Even if I pick a channel it says success but what does that mean? I go back to google home try various things….nothing.a it mess now. If you can update your video it might help. Thanks if you can.
