Eero and older Wemo devices

I have some older Wemo mini plugs that are pre-homekit.  I went to check them the other night and realized that I'd not user them since I went with the eero router (pro 6) from my ISP. And in that process of moving to the new router, I'd changed the SSID of the WiFi network. I didn't see a way thru the Wemo app to just change the name of the network they connect to, so after much searching, I reset the devices. I had trouble connecting to their WiFi network so that I could set them up again using my iPhone. So I installed the Wemo app on my iPad and I was able to connect to the Wemo Device's network and then I was able to tell it to connect to my eero-based house wifi. Everything went well until I had to put in the password for the WiFi.  I could see the password so I know that I'm not fat-fingering it and I know that it's correct, but the Wemo device says that it can't connect and prompts me to re-input the password.

Is there something about the Pro 6 that would not allow these older devices to connect?  I've tried to talk to Wemo support, but their chat person finally wanted me to get someone on the phone and that's been almost impossible.

  • They'll work perfectly to connect and the 5GHz will restart in 15 minutes and your Wemos will stay connected to the eero at this point.


  • You are right but Wemo is compatible with the Home app and your Apple devices. When using Wemo Mini or Dimmer, or the Wemo Bridge and the Apple Home app, you can control Wemo connected lights and appliances from your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, and HomePod. Dinar Guru
