Wemo integration stopped working?

Hey anyone, my Wemo integration stopped working yesterday. Home assistant can no longer see any of my WEMO devices and nothing has been changed. I’m on 0.95.4.

Can someone confirm their wemo devices are still working (i’m wondering if Wemo have done something to block Home Assistant).


I have two WeMo power switches that are still working in HA.

When I moved to a different server and installed fresh, I also lost Wemo devices, but then I manually assigned them in the configuration and they’re working just fine. Setup static IP’s for the MAC addresses on your router and explicitly tell HA where they are and they’ll work.

You may need to reconfigure them in the Wemo app…I recall doing this too.

@arretx Thanks I just assigned the Wemo devices a static IP and configured Home Assistant to those IP addresses. All’s working again.

Many thanks!

No problem. A bit annoying when things don’t work the way they did the first time. I remember Wemo just firing up and being recognized right out of the box when I put HASS.io on my Pi3.

Yes, I forgot I had set mine up as static ip some time ago because I had exactly the same issue. Glad you got them going again.

I have the same issue did the update to Hassio and they stopped being recognized by HA. I had mine static and still no joy getting them back up and recognized again. Something in the 96.5 broke them. I tried doing it though discovery but nothing so put them back static, rebooted host, and still no luck. Not sure what broke them.

Did you add the Wemo Integration? What does your config yaml look like for Wemo?

Yeah I had the Wemo Integration setup and in the config Yaml I had this:



Add discovery: false as well. I just did that this week as even with static addressing it was sometimes not showing.

Will do I will try that

  discovery: false
    - !secret wemo_ip

That is my config.

@DavidFW1960 after having to rebuild HA I checked out the config on wemo. Still not joy it seems to be an issue with last few upgrades to HA that broke it.

David I tried it different ways on getting Wemo device to work again. The integration part is detecting them but it is not putting any devices in that list. It states no devices listed. I did it with discovery and then did it with static still no joy so it has to be something in build 96.2 and up that broke it since that is when it happened. Bad part is my poor Pi died so migrated over to UnRAID NAS and the config snapshots would not take so had to rebuild it from scratch.

I’ve just turned discovery back on for wemo as it started not being detected again and with discovery false it then wouldn’t pick it up when it came back online. It’s being discovered again now. I’m nthis close to throwing it away and using one of my spare Sonoff S22’s I have laying around.

LOL yeah no joy there either. I guess I will be doing the same with some Sonoffs or Converted Tuya switches.

Did you get it working or switched to the Sonoff? I have a couple Wemos laying around and wanted to set up some automations for Xmas lights.
They do not show up in the integration no matter what the configuration.yaml file has. All are static. An entity is created but the automations do not see the entity.
