WeMo Hacking

I've spent some time reverse engineering my WeMo switch. It's pretty cool and I figured out how to get it to do what I wanted. It's based on UPnP, which I found the miranda tool to be the best (closest to working with WeMo, and easiest to read)

I had to make some modifications to the miranda package to get it working, and to get it properly reporting the details of the device.

To use, download, cd into the wemo folder and open a python intepreter:

$ python
>>> from wemo import on, off, get
