We’ve had Wemos for a long time and don’t have any Homekit gear. I’ve been considering a Wemo hub. However, I noticed that they have started need ing an account. If account fatigue is a thing, count me in.
On Wemo’s account faq, I see the following:
“Wemo Accounts works using the Wemo Remote Cloud Server. When controlling your Wemo devices, your App will communicate with the Wemo Remote Cloud Server which relays commands from your App to your Wemo Devices. With Wemo Accounts, only users who you share your login credentials with will be able to access and control your Wemo devices.”
So now instead of working within my home network, all commands to Wemo devices will go through a Wemo cloud on the internet. I can’t believe this will result in better performance, and am concerned about my home’s Wemo devices having anything to do with an external cloud service.
Any other Wemo users out there? Please share opinions or experience with the new account.
