I recently purchased a Belkin WeMo Insight smart plug for evaluation with my Sense. There were no problems linking to the WiFi, updating the firmware, and getting it working with the Wemo App from Belkin. The device (a hanging lamp with five LED bulbs and a dimmer), correctly turns on/off using their App. My next step was to complete the integration with Sense.
I enabled Wemo in the Sense Integration settings. Those instructions read: “Connecting Wemo Insight Smart Plug to a device allows Sense to reliably track that device and its energy usage. It will also give you the ability to turn your device on and off, directly from your Sense app. To get started, simply connect a device to your smart plug and Sense should detect it automatically.”
Since that time (two days ago), the status in Sense settings still reads “Looking for plugs”. I had expected the smart plug device name to appear in the Sense device list by now, but it has not…
That lamp is controlled manually (not with the Wemo App), and is used often.
Are my expectations incorrect? What should I be looking for?
