    Not so bad, but not stable

    • Written by from Montreal

    I bought this product for my mother's house. I was badly tired to go change the schedule of the old mechanics style she got before. So with the description of this product, I was thinking I just have to buy this new one and set-up with the sunset and close in the midnight. I was thinking no more set-up will be needed. But my parents start to told me than the light doesn't close at night and often (not always) the light keep open when they wake-up. I find than sometimes the Wemo lost his connection and probably if it's when he suppose to close, he just... not close? I just don't really know. But it's work until it doesn't... just not stable. I have "hue" from philips at my apartment and I just love more this concept and it's reliability. Not perfect to but so much better. I just don't understand how reliability his not the first criteria for a company? Who knows?

    Simple and beautiful product with little "insight"

    • Written by from Barrington

    As WiFi smart plugs go, the Belkin WeMo Insight Switch is beautifully designed, easy to set up and simple to use. Ironically, it lacks the useful utility experience eluded to by it's namesake. The app provides little to no real insight. It would be great to see a visualization of the data it collects and review that data by date and time, run reports and ultimately draw some usage conclusions.

    Additionally, the plug itself lacks an external power button, making the app the sole option for turning power on and off. Sometimes, it's easier to just flick a switch.
