I purchased a WeMo Mini Wifi Plug.
I installed WeMo app - all looks great. I can see it and control it.
I WAS able to add it to my ST app - it found it just fine.
My problem is that in the ST app, the plug is ALWAYS showing as ON. When I tap it, it thinks for a second and shows as still on. When I look at the plug, it is actually turned off and I have confirmed this by opening the WeMo app. I have even unplugged it from the wall, and waited up to 30 minutes, but some reason ST still thinks that I have the plug connected and on. It does not even show as disconnected. When I plug it back in for a few minutes, I can pseudo control it again with the ST app, but again the ST app refuses to show it as off or disconnected. Only in the WeMo app or physically looking at it, do I see it being controlled.
My goal is to have this connected to my Chest Freezer as I am in a new home and my chest freezer seems to keep tripping the GFI outlet it is plugged into about once a week/ every other week or so (my only option where it is stored). I need something to notify me if it ever becomes tripped again so I don’t lose a fortune in frozen food. I would like to set this up as an automation as well that turns my HUE light in my bedroom a certain color when the plug loses connectivity or turns off.
This is pretty much new construction (less than 2 years old) and the overall electric here has been pretty annoying so far in the 50 days we have been here.
Thanks in advance.
