Welcome to WeMo wemoPic

Local SDK for iOS and Android

The very philosophy of our company, People Inspired Products, centers on creating products inspired by the consumer. WeMo technology is built from the ground up to enhance everyday life by answering the need of the consumer for greater control of their life. With that in mind, we want to give you even more capability to explore just what you can do with WeMo. Here we have provided the WeMo Local SDK. With this kit, you can build and modify your own apps to unleash the full potential of your connected home devices in the ways that you see fit. This local SDK is designed so that you can explore WeMo and use it as a tool to make it your own. Create it, tweak it, rework it; whatever you want to do with WeMo on a local level, now you can.

The WeMo Ecosystem

WeMo is comprised of three elements:

The App
All the action happens here. The app allows you to control your connected devices through a variety of ways. Through integration with rules and IFTTT, room for customization is huge. With the SDK, you can modify what the app does at the local level.
The Switch
This is the physical element of WeMo system. The switch plugs into your wall socket and syncs to your system via WiFi. It allows you to turn your electronics on or off, set schedules and design rules to govern your connected devices. Combined with a motion sensor, rules can be set to turn on or off electronics when motion is detected. The switch can be controlled through any Internet connection on your phone. But for the purposes of this SDK, they will be controlled through your local connection.
The Cloud
The cloud ties it all together. Commands sent to and from WeMo devices travel through the cloud from phone to WeMo or WeMo to phone.
