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.

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. …

Simple and superb
This white plug-in-plug adapter is a very simple gadget to set up. Previous experience with these WiFi enabled things has been pa This white plug-in-plug adapter is a very simple gadget to set up. Previous experience with these WiFi enabled things has been patchy, but this was incredibly easy. Plug it in, press the button and then configure the WeMo through the easy to use App. Simple. I was expecting a tricky part, but there wasn't one.
If you are keen to explore further, you can set rules from the App itself and activate, or deactivate them remotely, simply switch it on and off remotely, or if you are really adventurous, you can register for "If This Then That" which is a web-based system which enables you to link the WeMo to external "Actions", like a website reporting that the sun is setting in your area, or that the temperature will be below zero that day...
Unbelievably simple, and the possibilities are almost endless.
Get one. Then see how long it takes before you are thinking about getting another... …

Won't connect to my wifi
This device refuses to connect to my wifi network because there's spaces in the password. Thoroughly useless.

I have 4 airport extremes dotted around the house to ensure full coverage. all my other wifi devices work perfectly. As an example- we have 22 philips hue bulbs... never a problem!

Poor quality device - regular reboots required

Works well (to start with). So far so good... but it just stops working after a few days. I get it working nicely one weekend and by the following weekend it just isn't picked up by the iPhone app any more. I've applied all the firmware patches and it just drives me nuts. I bought it so I could wake on a Saturday and turn on a heater in a shed allowing it to get nice and warm before going out. I've had it now for 3 months and not once after a week's work have I been able to do that. Every time I have to go into a cold shed and reboot it. I've had enough. I'm going to try alternatives. …

"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."

How many amps does the Belkin WeMo switch handle?
- Asked by Terry O from Bellingham
OK, just after I submitted the question, I continued to sleuth for an answer. I viewed the image of OK, just after I submitted the question, I continued to sleuth for an answer. I viewed the image of the switch and there on the plate near the power prongs was the information on amperage or current draw.
So, the answer is 15 amps. Multiplying that number by the voltage provides the number of watts which the switch can handle. …
