Is this compatible with the iPad mini?
The mini isn't listed as a compatable device, but it has the same specifications (basically) as the iPad 2, which is listed. Why isn't the iPad mini compatable?

Yes, it is compatible with the mini. Matter of fact, I just turned my front room light on from work! My WeMo's work with iPhone 4, 5; iPad 2, 3 and Mini. On rare occasions the app goes wonky, but fixes easily by turning iDevice WiFi off and on, or by accessing WeMo app with another device.

In theory, perhaps. But, in practice, the Wemo app works quite well with my iPhone 5, but not so well with my iPad Mini Retina.
Virtually all elements of the Wemo app are operational on the IPhone. On the iPad Mini, certain windows will load, but the "Save" and "Edit" buttons are rarely operational. The effect is that changing rules for switches have become iPhone only activities. In addition, the main screen frequently refreshes upon opening the iPad Mini app and loses connection with one or more switches which necessitates reseting each switch that is suddenly not being recognized. If Wemo continues to list the iPad Mini as not fully supported, I can fully understand their reasoning.

It works fine with my iPad mini. It is an iPhone app, so it runs in a small window on the iPad mini, just as it would with the full-sized iPad.
