Wemo Switch and IFTTT  
- Wemo should understand where I am, but apparently it thinks I'm somewhere else entirely as the light was on when I woke up at 4:00 AM this morning. A small thought in that regard: if they can screw up getting the proper sunset time for my zip code, how much can we trust their security? -
