Belkin Wemo Binding

This binding integrates the Belkin WeMo Family. The integration happens either through the WeMo-Link bridge, which acts as an IP gateway to the ZigBee devices or through WiFi connection to standalone devices.

Supported Things

The WeMo Binding supports the Socket, Insight, Lightswitch, Motion, Dimmer, Coffemaker and Maker devices, as well as the WeMo-Link bridge with WeMo LED bulbs.


The WeMo devices are discovered through UPnP discovery service in the network. Devices will show up in the inbox and can be easily added as Things.

Binding Configuration

The binding does not need any configuration.

Thing Configuration

For manual Thing configuration, one needs to know the UUID of a certain WeMo device. In the thing file, this looks e.g. like

wemo:socket:Switch1 [udn="Socket-1_0-221242K11xxxxx"]

For a WeMo Link bridge and paired LED Lights, please use the following Thing definition

Bridge wemo:bridge:Bridge-1_0-231445B01006A0 [udn="Bridge-1_0-231445B010xxxx"] {
MZ100 94103EA2B278xxxx [ deviceID="94103EA2B278xxxx" ]
MZ100 94103EA2B278xxxx [ deviceID="94103EA2B278xxxx" ]


Devices support some of the following channels:

Channel Type Item Type Description Available on Thing
