Wemo integration not seeing new Wemo WiFi Smart Outdoor Plug

Hello all,

I recently installed a Wemo Outdoor WiFi Smart Plug. I’ve assigned a fixed IP to it, and it is showing up and controllable in the Wemo app. However, when I list that fixed IP in the configuration.yaml file, it is not showing up.

Has anyone had any luck adding one of these newer Wemo switches to their Home Assistant setup? Is there anything about these switches that are different than previous Wemo switches?

FYI, more research suggests this is a known issue with pywemo and the new hardware and is being actively tracked here:
