When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Wemo showing offline in Alexa Ap but works
« on: December 06, 2016, 04:23:09 am »
Set up 4 Wemo wall plugs to control lamps. All are working fine with the rules I have set up for each. Noticed in the Alexa ap that all 4 switches are showing offline. This just recently changed, have no idea what happened. Alex can discover all 4 devices but still says offline. The Wemos work fine with no issues following rules or voice commands. How do I fix the annoying offline issue in the Alexa ap?

Thank you

I see it all the time too but imo, as long as the device is working with echo, I could care less what it says on the app.

Renegade600's reply is useless.
My Echo also suddenly lost touch with its Wemo switch ... and now can't  find it ... used to work fine. Has Wemo recently "upgraded" their software? ... or is Echo lagging? 
Alexa can't install the Wemo skill because she isn't sensing a switch she had no trouble finding and controlling last week.
My conclusion: Wemo (Belkin) is sloppy with their IoT code ... not ready for use in a grown-up's house. If Echo & Wemo want to run our houses, they need to UP their game.

well at least I did not hijack someone elses thread that had a completely different problem.  please start your own thread.    the thread you hijacked was about being offline but still worked.  yours is offline but don't work.  two completely different situation.   If you are going to knock someone elses solution or comment, make sure it even applies first.

did you open your wemo app to see if there are any updates?
