    First WeMo Switch

    • Written by from caledon

    This is hands down one of the best first impressions that I have had of a product. There are very few pieces of technology where you open the box, download and app, power the product, and you're basically set. I haven't tried all of the other products yet but the switch is definitely a must purchase. Thanks Belkin for making getting out of the shower in the morning far more enjoyable! (I use the switch to power a space heater in my washroom 15 minutes before my alarm goes off in the mornings).

    As promised/expected

    The installation was as easy as the reviews I read said it was. Quick and easy. I have the switch plugged into the upper outlet and can still plug something in the bottom though a bulky charger might be a problem to fit. I used it for a light behind something that was impossible to get at without this. It has worked perfectly. Very pleased.

    Awesome Product!

    I've been using home automation products for many years now. Wemo wins, hands down! Easy to configure (not sure why others are having such difficulties), easy to use, rules to turn devices on and off work great, and as soon as the wall switch comes out, I will be in line to buy several!!

    If you're on the fence about buying these based upon some of the reviews, ignore them and spend your money. You won't regret it!

    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.
