    Used every day!

    • Written by from Bromsgrove

    We have two WeMo switches and they have worked flawlessly now for over 6 months since we got them. Easy to set up, easy to configure; certainly no issues through a BT Homehub anyway.

    They tell you they need updating and that's happened a couple of times without drama. I love the fact you can take pictures of the devices they control so you know what's what.

    Much better than a timer as they can have scheduled on or off switching regardless of their status at the time and you have remote control of course. Very much recommended!

    worked first time, easy to use

    This switch gives complete remote control of electrical appliances. I bought this switch so I could remotely control the light in the front room so not to return to a dark house in the evening. Works perfectly and have now though of many more uses: electric blanket, slow cooker, room heater. This is a revolutionary idea and Belkin has done it right. It is a little bulky but no more than any other timer. Well done.

    Simple and superb

    • Written by from Maulden

    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...

    Brilliant

    Received this product today. Easy to set up. Product works exactly as it says it should. Tested it via my home WIFI and over 3G and both work perfectly. WIFI is instant on and off, over 3G there is a slight pause but only a second or two. The list is endless what can be done with this product and now I've tried and tested it I will be purchasing a few more.

    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.
