The Wemo® Mini Smart Plug​, F7C063 lets you turn electronic devices ON or OFF from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet.  This home automation device uses your existing home Wi-Fi to provide wireless control of lamps, heaters, fans, and more.  You can even set schedules for your devices and control them remotely with an active mobile internet connection.

Before you begin:
  • Know your default Wemo Wi-Fi name which is located on the product label at the back of the Wemo Mini.  The name will appear as Wemo.Mini.xxx, where xxx is the last three digits of the serial number.
  • Check if your Wemo Mini has an Apple® HomeKit™ code sticker on the back.  If so, write it down.  You will need this for setup.  You will be asked to scan the code but if you are unable to scan it while it’s connected to a power source, you can just enter the code manually.  You can also find the HomeKit code sticker on the Quick Start Guide that came with it.  DO NOT UNPLUG the Wemo Mini during setup, this will cause the setup to fail.
 
Requirements:
  • Existing Wi-Fi 
  • Wemo App 1.21 or higher
  • iOS 11.3 or higher
    • iOS 11.3 is only required if you will be managing your Wemo Mini with the Apple Home app, otherwise iOS 9 or higher is required.
