I have several wemos that work great with openHAB, but they were all setup with the iOS app before wemo switched to cloud control (that change is what led me to openHAB).
I’ve now bought a new wemo, and the wemo app will not activate it without me making a cloud account. It’s my understanding that if I activate the wemos with a cloud account, they are permanently locked out of local (and therefore openHAB) control?
Whether or not that is true, I don’t like the idea of relying on a manufacturer app to setup a device to work with an open source platform, which leads me to:
Is there a way to setup a wemo (tell it what WiFi to connect to and whatever else happens during initial setup) without relying on a pre-cloud version of the official wemo app?
