With the WeMo app, you can control all of your WeMo products from anywhere on your iPhone or iPad.
Be at home even when you’re not
WeMo is a family of products that you can use to control just about anything in your home – from anywhere. Adjust the temperature on your Crock-Pot® Smart Slow Cooker when you are running late at work, make sure the kids’ TV turns off at bedtime, and light up a dark room before you walk in. WeMo is designed to make your life a whole lot easier.
Set it, forget it, and get notifications
Don’t ever worry that you left your porch light on by setting a rule to turn off at sunrise, set alerts to let you know when your dryer cycle is done so your clothes won’t get wrinkled, and have your lights and electronics deter intruders by simulating occupancy while you are lying on a beach in Hawaii.
These are just some of the things you can do with the WeMo app.
Integrate WeMo with IFTTT
With IFTTT (if this then that), you can connect your home to the web for endless possibilities. Set your sprinklers to stay off when rain is in the forecast or have the lights come on when you approach your front door. You can even have the lights flash when your favorite team scores.
If you can think of it, you can probably WeMo That.

Simple app controlled outlet
This is a simple way to control a power outlet via an app. Take the switch out of the box, plug it into a power outlet, set your This is a simple way to control a power outlet via an app. Take the switch out of the box, plug it into a power outlet, set your wifi to the WeMo, configure it in the app, hit the "done" button after the app finds it, and then you can turn the outlet on/off or make timer rules for it to go on and/or off. I'm using it to control an air conditioner, so I can turn it on about an hour before I get home, so it'll be nice and cool. Additional security features would be an improvement ... anyone on the same SSID with the WeMo app can control any outlet on that network. …

Good idea but not there yet:
1. You can not set it up remotely. In case your iPhone App crashed (or else), you cannot set WeMo up Good idea but not there yet:
1. You can not set it up remotely. In case your iPhone App crashed (or else), you cannot set WeMo up remotely. No web access, telnet..etc.
2. You cannot have more than one locations and controlled by the same App on iPhone.
3. Tech support not good. I emailed the (first) question above, they simply direct me to online support web page, which is useless.
I am returning my WeMo. …

I'm not sure who answers the questions on these products but I can only assume they haven't bought one and are purely speculating. I'm not sure who answers the questions on these products but I can only assume they haven't bought one and are purely speculating. Let's clear up the UK 220V issue straight off. It IS 220V and works perfectly in the UK. Any mention of 110V is for the US plugs and is nothing to do with the UK plug. If you walk into an Apple Store and take a look at the bottom of the box it makes it quite clear that the plug is a 220V version.
Unfortunately Apple are using the US photos which doesn't help the confusing but trust me, it's the UK plug and will work fine.
Onto the device. It's a fairly bulky thing and very similar to the old plugs you'll have seen for turning your lights on and off when on holiday. Well this of course does exactly that but it works remotely so you can be switching your lights on and off from anywhere in the world. The other very useful feature is the ability to set times for the switch to come on and off and at set times including picking specific days. As you add more switches you just give them custom names and before you know it you've got home automation in the palm of your hands.
This really is a great device that does exactly what it says on the tin. …

Needed something more than a timer. Wanted to switch things on at home whilst I am on the move, out of the home, this is the best Needed something more than a timer. Wanted to switch things on at home whilst I am on the move, out of the home, this is the best solution. You can set things to operate between sunrise and sunset, timed, motion and remotely. I can switch lights on if I am going to be later than usual, switch my Zip tap boiler on and off aligned to current needs and not have to wait for the tank to boil up for that cuppa when you get home. Way better than timed switches that cannot remotely react to your change of plans. Excellent. …

Worst Excecution of a Great Idea I've Ever Seen
Einstein said The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That is also th Einstein said The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That is also the description for the WeMo Setup. If you follow the directions you can get the WeMo network up. Getting the WeMo to recognize your WiFi network is highly problematic. After the 4th or 5th time it worked.
Mine also keeps saying there is a Software Update available even immediately after doing the update. I show that I have 1.12 so it should be current. FWIW after saying it had successfully installed the update, the iPhone App kept saying it was installing the update.
Now having done the update, the schedule works and I can operate the WeMo at home, but I can't turn on "Remote Access" Maybe it will work tomorrow!!!!! Insanity again. …

"Can my WeMo App control WeMo devices in different homes (on multiple networks)?
No, WeMo App cannot control other WeMo devices in different homes. Currently, an Android™ or iOS device can only control WeMo devices in one (1) location. To control WeMo devices in multiple locations, you will need another iOS or Android device for each location."
