    Works as advertised...

    • Written by from Ottawa

    I installed this unit in my main entrance hallway to control the external lights. It was easy to do. Those complaining that you cannot remotely control this unit do not know what they are talking about. It is false statement. I am at work and I just tested the WeMo app and I can control my various Belkin WeMo units. Another time, I was in another city and turned off my bedroom lights using cellular service and it worked. Another reviewer complained that his unit lost access to his WiFi about a dozen times in one night. I have never experienced this. The manual clearly states that you cannot use metal face plates because it will interfere with the WiFi reception. I think this is the person's problem. Read the manual people. Great device and I can do everything as advertised.

    Works great when FW/SW are in sync...

    • Written by from Cypress

    I've been using WEMO devices for some time now. I have five in use and they are all working well. They were working poorly about 6 months back, could not see them most of the time even when on my home network, but at least the programmed rules kept working fine. That was either resolved by a FW update or SW update. Working well now and I love the them. I have two outside and they stay attached to my network, no problem.

    Works great!

    The switch was easily picked up on my wifi network and works flawlessly. Its almost magical the way you can set it turn on at sunset (which is different everyday, duh?) or off at sunrise. I have the 2 Wemo Insight switches and they work great too. Thanks Belkin!

    Excellent - if you have the correct electrical box

    • Written by from Burlingame

    I installed one of these last week and it works great. Now we can turn the light on and off by pushing the switch itself or using the app installed on our iPhones. The kids thought it was hilarious that mommy was controlling the lights remotely while on a trip. The app shows if the light is on or off and even when remote it seems to always match reality.

    Installation notes - you must have a fairly deep electrical box (the thing in your wall where the wires come in) for the Wemo switch to fit, as it is a very deep part. If you have very stiff wire or multiple wires coming into the box it might be a tight fit. The front of the Wemo switch is a standard size so you can use the existing cover from a rocker type light switch (if it isn't metal) instead of the oversize plate that is included. Finally, the firmware update that you will probably have to do after connecting to your network should be done after you have finished installation and your circuit breaker is back on for good. It took several minutes and cutting power in the middle of a firmware update is a good way to brick most electronics.

    It took me about 15 minutes to take out my old switch and put in the new switch. I follow the directions that I found on the website it was easy. I turn on the power I loaded the app I connected to Wi-Fi that took about another five minutes. Then I push the on off button on my iPhone and it worked flawlessly next I turned off the Wi-Fi on my phone and just used the 3G and it still worked flawlessly. And amazing product totally reliable well worth the money. In the past when I went on vacation I would put photoelectric cells on all sorts of different lights but when you drive past the house that's lit up at 4 o'clock in the morning it doesn't really send out the right message that people are at home. This will be great especially if I forget to turn on the lights for the dogs if I stay out longer than what I thought I would. I would have no hesitation recommending this to anyone

    Great product! Installation and setup was easy and straight forward. Been using it for two weeks for our front porch light and it works flawlessly. Light is programmed to come on at sunset and stay on till midnight 7 days a week. Also set to come on in the morning at 5am and go off at sun rise on weekdays. Highly recommend! Plan on getting more.

    Excellent & 1st Class Quality...

    • Written by from CALGARY

    I bought 3 of these units to run 3 sets of exterior porch lighting. They are very straight forward to install and work with the existing double and triple socket faceplates. But it is not recommend for 2 or 3 way light switching. The instructions and online video’s via the Belkin website is easy to follow, as well as using your own common sense. I have been running these switches for about a month via my iPhone 4S, using the WeMo application. I configured it, so that the lighting is automated. This is ideal for the short daylight of winter and long nights of darkness here in Alberta. Excellent product, well done Belkin.

    Effective and elegant.... Highly recommended

    • Written by from San Diego

    I purchased a total of three, and I've been extremely happy. Read the requirements carefully because there are exceptions, but it is exceptionally well designed. You can use it with IFTTT and helpful for those time when you're away from your home (light switches). You can have it set up to a plug too, that is how its set up for my lamp in my living room.

    DIY install, fairly straight forward!
