PSA: If Wemo smart plugs are unreliable, try configuring them via Homebridge

Cupertino, October 6, 2021

When I saw a pack of 3 Wemo Smart Plugs at Best Buy for $ 50, I thought such a good deal is too good to be true. It seems that it was and, for many months since I owned them, I had to deal with consistent abandonments and scenes that failed due to the fact that they did not respond. In a last-ditch effort to make them run consistently before throwing them in the trash out of frustration, I noticed that there was a Homebridge plugin that was not only available, but was easily advertised on the Homebridge homepage. "These things already have HomeKit support. It's weird, "I thought. Little did I know. Ever since they hit it off, they've all been absolutely * solid rock *. The plugs didn't fail once a week, I made them go over the Homebridge, I couldn't be easier. I am now aware that I am echoing what other people have said here in the past, but it needs to be repeated for beginners like me, because these corks in hell have finally a redemptive arc. The best option is not to buy WiFi-based sockets (especially Wemos) first, the second best option seems to be Homebridge.
