    Yes, you just have to install the app on each device. We currently have it running on two iphones and 1 ipod touch.

  • I couldn't do that. After setting up the switch, only the iPhone that was used to set it up could detect the switch. The other iPhone can't even detect the switch at all. I have looked for answers on the net and couldn't find the solution.

  • I completely closed the App and then restarted and it found the device on the iPad that I had set up on the iPhone. A simple refresh would not do. I would try this before reinstalling the App.

    Good luck.

  • Yes, it can be controlled by multiple iPhones/iPads. The easiest way I have found to set this up is to have the WEMO setup on one iPhone. Once this one is working to your satisfaction (names, photos, etc.), download the WEMO app on the second iPhone, The app will download slowly, but once it is ready to open all of the WEMO devices are set up with the exact same settings as the original iPhone set-up. This corrects the problem of the second iPhone not finding your WEMO device (a common problem) if the WEMO app is already preloaded . This setup procedure can be repeated for all devices that will control the WEMO.

  • The entire Wemo system plays nicely with multiple iPhones and iPads. Very easy to set up.
