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.

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. …

Very buggy and unreliable
Given the high price you would expect it to be somewhat reliable. 90% of the time the app say the devices can't be detected and ye Given the high price you would expect it to be somewhat reliable. 90% of the time the app say the devices can't be detected and yet I can ping them.

Had this for 6 months and finally had to throw it away
The initial setup was easy and the scheduling worked well but it became frustrating when the WeMo app would randomly insist it cou The initial setup was easy and the scheduling worked well but it became frustrating when the WeMo app would randomly insist it couldn't see the switch on the local wi-fi network and I would have to change to 3G just to turn it on or off.
Firmware updates seemed to make the problem worse until I was having to do manual resets every couple of weeks just to keep the switch working.
It finally became unresponsive a few days ago and wouldn't even connect to my iPhone to perform a clean setup so regretfully I've had to get rid of it.
Great idea, shame about the reliability. …

"Can my WeMo App control WeMo devices in different homes (on multiple networks)?
