    Brilliant

    • Written by from Narberth

    Brilliant product. So useful and simple to set up and use. Better than those light timers when your away. I even use it to switch lights off when the wife is home to make her jump. Worth getting one for that!

    Superb gadget

    • Written by from HARTLEPOOL

    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.

    This device is really neat! It was much larger than I had expected, but the functionality is awesome! I'm really happy I purchased this and will be getting more in the future!

    Great product!

    • Written by from Rancho Cucamonga

    Picked this up at my local Apple Store. I have one room in the house where I'm constantly forgetting to turn off. And normally, I don't think about it until I'm about ready to fall asleep. I just pickup my iPhone, open the WeMo app, and turn off the lamp. And set up was a breeze too! Great product. Good for those who constantly forget to turn off the light. There are only 2 complaints. 1, the price. $50 is fine if your going to use 1 or 2 of them, but try to populate your house with these and they get expensive. 2, size. Due to the size of the WeMo, you can't plug 2 into the same outlet, which is bad if you have 2 items you would like to use WeMo for on the same outlet.

    Great idea, and a few improvements will make it amazing.

    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.

    Almost there

    • Written by from San Francisco

    These are great and in my opinion well worth $50 in order to stop using the wonky legacy light timers ("tic, tick, tic...") or other systems that are not as reliable. Give one of these a try and you will never go back!

    Second switch install tricky

    • Written by from White Lake

    Love these devices and would have given a 5 star but setting up the second device was a little more difficult, even though I selected "remember network" on first device I had to enter the network again, then it selected the guest network anyway! Also on the first device I got an error message pop up installing the firmware update yet the device was fine afterward. Writing rules are easy but I wish there was an option to vary the on/off times per rule, say the times can vary by n number of minutes on a random basis to avoid the set schedule and make it look more like someone is home. No need for a motion switch so no comments about it.

    Works as advertised

    • Written by from Edmonton

    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.

    Easy Set Up

    This is a great product that requires no technical skills. You can control your lights from anywhere you have WIFI or 3G connection. APP is nicely designed and simple. Highly recommend this product.

    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.

    Nifty little switch

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I have to hand it to Belkin, the WeMo Switch is a pretty nifty little device. The device itself is a little bigger than I was expecting, but setup was a lot simpler than expected. I had no problems getting it up and running, nor connecting it with IFTTT, which was a very nice surprise to see. Plain and simple, it's a very simple device with a fair amount of potential. That said, it /is/ a little limited in what it can do right now, hence the 4/5. Other than that, no issues with it at all.

    Simple app controlled outlet

    • Written by from Mineola

    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.
