    Great Product. Wanting more now...

    • Written by from Ontario

    I just got home with my new WeMo switch. Easy to hook up. Secure once married to your wireless network. I wasn't sure it would work away from home, but it works awesome over 3G / 4G with my VPN to home. It is like I am just there at home.

    Wish it was a little cheaper in price, but works as advertised. The rules work good. I was worried the app would have to stay open to make it turn on and off with a rule. It looks like the switch has some smarts and knows what time it is.

    Now I want about 10 more for the house.

    Solid product

    • Written by from Calgary

    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.

    Great Device

    • Written by from SAINT AUGUSTINE

    I travel a lot and I have 3 of these running the lights in my house. Easy to set up and nice to have different time schedules for the week and the weekend. If you are using multiple timers, there is a feature that allows you to take a picture of the room they are in so that you can distinguish them on your iPhone.

    Switch it up

    • Written by from West Palm Beach

    I just got this and think it is just the coolest little device I've seen in a while. It's efficient and unique and works like a charm. It has many different uses and you can use it on the go for at home from any of your iOS devices. Now that I have one I want more. You can set it up on a timer , or just use your IPhone to control the switch from wherever you are. I highly recommend it to anyone.

    Setup was straightforward. I got it connected to my home wifi and hooked up to IFTTT within minutes. Has a lamp set up to turn on and off automatically based on sunset/sunrise events, and it has been working flawlessly so far.

    Cool

    • Written by from San Diego

    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 ; )

    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!

    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.

    Almost perfect....

    • Written by from Forest Lake

    Have got 5 WeMo Switches and a Motion Detector and have had zero problems getting them up and working.

    Only issue seem to be that sometimes when I have pulled a switch from the PowerPoint it can lose its config......the Motion Detector keeps its config when moved.

    Also the app doesn't let me change the name or icon of a device once setup.

    Bring on the light switch and while your at it can you make them as Powerpoints so I can replace the ones I have in my wall and control them remotely....maybe even a powerboard would be cool to.

    Also the scheduling is excellent but havnt yet tried IFTTT.

    Works as advertised (I have four now!)

    • Written by from Emmitsburg

    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!

    Very useful

    • Written by from Burton

    Have 2 and have had them for 5 months.......use the timer device flawlessly to turn lights on and off. One thing I found during setup, If you have a router EXTENDER, turn the EXTENDER OFF during setup so it connects to the main router, then the set up goes smooth. I can access these from my home network, another network, and cellular just fine

    Belkin WeMo Switch

    • Written by from Navarre

    have been using them for a few months now. Have not had any issues to speak of, those that have been experiencing problems probably have WiFi interference problem. On of my switch was on the edge of my network (weak signal from router) and sometimes would take a while to show up on the app (30 -40 seconds). added an wifi extender to my house and that took care of it. you must understand the operation of these switches, they use very little bandwidth and are not dumping information every second. all and all am very happy with the switch, wish they would make a 240vac one to control my spa heater.

    Very impressed

    • Written by from Closter

    I bought 4 of these to control various lights at our house, one being the outdoor landscape lighting. They work great.

    I am an average computer user, I understand how things work and that's about it. No problem at all setting it up. They detected my networks right away.

    Our house has 3 Airport Extremes, and these are spread out on different airports (same internet provider, it's just that one airport can't send the signal to all the places so we needed 3). They all show up right away on my iPhone app.

    I set up the outdoor landscape lighting to turn on at Sunset, off at 1AM. Works great. Very nice to have that feature.

    The rules you can set are pretty neat. If you are using it as a "somebody's home security feature" you can set the rules to turn lights on and off at different times on different days. And it's very easy. Those other timer type things from Lowes take forever to program. This took about 30 seconds. Programs just like the alarm clock on the iPhone.

    Overall, great product so far. I could see adding a few more of these to the house.
