    WARNING not 802.11 compliant

    • Written by from Gherang

    In particular WPA/WPA2. It will not join a network with some special
    characters in the key (e.g. ",'). 802.11n specifies all printable characters
    special and alphanum.

    It would appear Belkin have known about this for at least 6 months
    but still have not fixed it. It makes you doubt the value of the "WIFI certified"
    logo on the box. Also they should warn you in the documentation.

    Would advise waiting until device meets standards and software
    is more mature.

    That said if you are prepared to reset all your devices (laborious)
    to a less secure key the remote access is useful.

    Works perfectly - very easy set up

    • Written by from Kingswood

    Belkin Wemo just works. Installation very straight forward after one glance at a simple instruction menu.

    Connected first time to the wireless network.

    Love it!

    Better than a plug in timer!

    • Written by from HOBART

    Works exactly as advertised. Easy to set up, simple to program. Turns on or off remotely with IOS app and can be combined with rules or timers. Recommended without hesitation.

    Where do I start?

    • Written by from Mt Claremont

    Bought 2 of these. 1st one worked fine. I then made the big mistake of installing the second. What a shame I did. The dreaded "cannot find device" comes up every two days or so. I've given up rebooting the devcie as I have far more important things to do in my life.
    Schedule can only be setup incorporating BOTH switches. What use is that?
    Firmware keeps updating on one of the switches but it never completes.
    Wifi range is very poor. Belkin state: "WeMo devices should have the same or better range than most other Wi-Fi devices". This is not true in reality. Another Belkin statement: "Some routers take multiple attempts to acquire a connection". That's right blame it on other equipment. I've NEVER had to try and connect other devcies multiple times.

    If you have a boring life and need something to occupy your free time I strongly suggest you buy 3 of these. You will NEVER be bored again as instaaling them will take you ages and they cause errors every few days just to keep you active.

    I bought and installed 2 today. No problem with the installation or the software update. So far, so good.

    Good but Expensive

    • Written by from Irvine

    This is a great product and it performs flawlessly as advertised, and I haven't had any problems with it. However, $50 is way too much for what it is. I would say $40 would be a fair price for this product and many more people could start automating there homes.

    As promised/expected

    • Written by from Vancouver

    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.

    Very hard to set up

    • Written by from Sydney

    When you finally get it working it does what it says on the tin, but this was a difficult experience and the Wemo app is buggy

    Awesome Product!

    • Written by from Edmonton

    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.

    • Written by from Frankston

    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.

    works great but ...

    • Written by from Breitenfurt

    my wemo seems to be incontinent! When it is shut off, still a little of power is going through! So the control light of my coffee machine is still visible!!! Don't know if that is ok or not?! When wemo is off, there should be no power at all!!

    Easy Home Integration

    • Written by from Bluefield

    I now have two WeMo Switchs and I love them. They work perfectly on my home network and they work just as well remotely. Easy set up takes about 5 minutes per unit. I would have gave them 5 stars, but I think at $50 per unit, it's a little pricey. I've found them cheaper from internet stores.
