I was having difficulty with my Wemo Switches lately. Constantly going offline and Smart Lighting app misfiring (commands not working). I got fed up with it and reported it to Support. I had heard back from them 3 hours later letting me know the NEW WEMO APP is here. And should fix current Wemo problems. I followed all their instructions and so far so good (1 hour after completing instructions). I got my fingers crossed. I’ll report back if anything comes up.
Below is the email from Support:
