    Great Product, Works Well

    This is a great device to have if you have a purpose for it. It works very smoothly and installation is simple. The app was horrific for a bit, but they've fixed it with the latest update.

    Works as advertised (I have four now!)

    Love my wemo’s! I purchased two more to bring my total to four. I am unsure why some folks are having the issues that they are. I can easily control my switches when I am not on my home router with no problems and set-up is fairly easy. A few times I had to start the process again but all four our great. I love having some of the switches turn on everything at once since they share the same clock. Of course, if your wi-fi is down, your switches won’t turn on. I am getting more creative with them as I go. My daughter thinks she can magically turn on the lights!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Belkin WEMO SWITCH!

    Bought this to connect to my high end espresso machine, so I could preheat and or program wake up to my schedule! for under $50 I think this product is GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!!
    Only issue I've had relates to remote (ie outside of my LAN, for example driving home from work). Im sure my network is blocking access, but have been unable to rectify. Spoke with the MOST polite customer service ever, who attempted to elevate my question to higher level technicians, but failed to follow up.
    Still, this product is worth the fact that I can essentially "turn on" my coffee maker from upstairs, so it heats up while I'm showering, and then premium capp is ready and fresh w/in 3 minutes before leaving for work. GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!!!

    Works perfectly - very easy set up

    Belkin Wemo just works. Installation very straight forward after one glance at a simple instruction menu.

    Connected first time to the wireless network.

    Love it!

    Works as advertised

    I received the unit as a Christmas gift. Downloaded the app for my phone. Had a bit of trouble with the app not seeing the unit at times. However, an app update fixed the issue and everything works flawlessly. Now am using IFTTT to link it to the task I'm using it for, which is cool in itself.

    Cool

    Based on some of the other reviews, I am bracing myself for a somewhat hard time setting my 2 switches up and was very pleasantly surprised when it was a breeze -- it was literally plugging in the switches, download WeMo app from app store, find WeMo Wifi on Setting, open WeMo app. Voila! Would gladly fill my house with these switches if they are more affordable ; )

    The switches are excellent.

    These switches couldn't be easier to set up. After reading the included leaflet, it takes literally 30 seconds to get them going. I understand those having some issues on MAC-address filtered networks, but those people should also be clued-in enough to diagnose issues easily. MAC filtering has its place but usually suggests someone with a clue is in charge.

    I've used many of these types of switches before, both IR and RF based. These are fantastic for those of us who are constantly glued to our iPhones or iPads. Beats having to walk around with another remote.

    It would be nice if Belkin made a version with built-in dimmer. I imagine (much) more than half of these will be used with lamps, and many CFLs and LED bulbs are dimmable now, so it would be fairly useful to have a slider next to the on/off button.

    I'd also like to see proper iPad graphics put into the existing app (making it universal). I think it's lazy when large companies won't spend the extra couple of grand to develop a pretty ipad interface for functionality which already exists in the app.

    Better than a plug in timer!

    Works exactly as advertised. Easy to set up, simple to program. Turns on or off remotely with IOS app and can be combined with rules or timers. Recommended without hesitation.

    A simple device that does exactly what what it's supposed to do.

    Very simple to setup and use. I just wish there was a wall switch version.

    Accurate Box

    Does exactly what it says on the packet. I will be buying more.

    Works for me

    I bought and installed 2 today. No problem with the installation or the software update. So far, so good.

    Good but Expensive

    This is a great product and it performs flawlessly as advertised, and I haven't had any problems with it. However, $50 is way too much for what it is. I would say $40 would be a fair price for this product and many more people could start automating there homes.

    worked first time, easy to use

    This switch gives complete remote control of electrical appliances. I bought this switch so I could remotely control the light in the front room so not to return to a dark house in the evening. Works perfectly and have now though of many more uses: electric blanket, slow cooker, room heater. This is a revolutionary idea and Belkin has done it right. It is a little bulky but no more than any other timer. Well done.

    Amazing!

    I love that I can turn my light on when I leave work so I dont come home to a dark house! You can also set it to turn on the electronic of your choice at a certain time on a certain day. Amazing! Plan on getting more! Buy now!

    Finally

    I have been looking for a device like this one for a while. Even when I'm half way across the globe it works perfectly.

    Simple and superb

    This white plug-in-plug adapter is a very simple gadget to set up. Previous experience with these WiFi enabled things has been patchy, but this was incredibly easy. Plug it in, press the button and then configure the WeMo through the easy to use App. Simple. I was expecting a tricky part, but there wasn't one.

    If you are keen to explore further, you can set rules from the App itself and activate, or deactivate them remotely, simply switch it on and off remotely, or if you are really adventurous, you can register for "If This Then That" which is a web-based system which enables you to link the WeMo to external "Actions", like a website reporting that the sun is setting in your area, or that the temperature will be below zero that day...

    Unbelievably simple, and the possibilities are almost endless.

    Get one. Then see how long it takes before you are thinking about getting another...

    Brilliant

    Received this product today. Easy to set up. Product works exactly as it says it should. Tested it via my home WIFI and over 3G and both work perfectly. WIFI is instant on and off, over 3G there is a slight pause but only a second or two. The list is endless what can be done with this product and now I've tried and tested it I will be purchasing a few more.

    Solid product

    I use this device to control my espresso machine, which works best if it warms up for 1/2 hr before I use it. The WeMo works great as a timer outlet, scheduling the machine to turn on before I wake up in the morning. But the real value to me is being able to start the machine from my phone if I am out and decide I want a coffee when I get home. No more waiting for warm up.

    Works well with Time Capsule wireless router. And is much cheaper than other home automation solutions. Very fit for purpose.

    Brilliant

    Brilliant product. So useful and simple to set up and use. Better than those light timers when your away. I even use it to switch lights off when the wife is home to make her jump. Worth getting one for that!
