App controls the WeMo Switch and WeMo Motion.
The iPhone home remote. Control stuff in your home – from anywhere.
Belkin’s new WeMo system is a family of simple, ingenious products that use your iPhone and your home Wi-Fi® network to connect you to the things and people you love. WeMo is your home at your fingertips.
WeMo can control just about anything.
With WeMo you can turn on a light from another room, or turn it off from across town. You can put your home on a schedule—living room lights go on in the evening, kids’ TV goes off at bedtime. You can check to make sure you turned the iron off, after you’ve already left. WeMo Switch is the iPhone home remote.
The Complete WeMo System.
The WeMo App runs on your iPhone and controls any electronic device you plug into a WeMo Switch—if you can plug it in, you can turn it on or off with WeMo. And WeMo Motion lets you control the devices when motion is detected. Have the floor lamp go on when you enter the living room, and turn off when you leave.
WeMo Switch and WeMo Motion are available at major retailers.
The WeMo family of products is great at automating repetitive tasks, and at allowing you to control your household in ways you’d never thought possible.
The beauty of WeMo is it’s completely modular. You can control as much or as little of your home as you like. Control one light, one room, or the whole house. There’s no limit to what WeMo can do. If you can think of it, you can probably do it with WeMo. WeMo is your home at your fingertips.

Fantastic - does all it says, even more
Fantastic product, very well done in every way. Unusually easy automatic setup (normally with this many aspects, it's a lot more i Fantastic product, very well done in every way. Unusually easy automatic setup (normally with this many aspects, it's a lot more involved, but this was super simple). Works perfectly as a remote or automated (with all sorts of real simple ways to have it controlled, including sunrise/sunset, and even more complex things like weather if you want to get into the IFTTT option) on/off power outlet, but even better are its power monitoring features (which is the feature this WeMo "Insight" switch adds). The screen shots of the app show what you get, current watts being used, costs (if you enter your electricity cost), etc, which gives you a true amount for what things like a heater, car battery/engine warmer, christmas lights, etc (N.B. only if the WeMo switch is inside a garage with extension out to car/lights/etc, it can't be used outdoors), or other high-wattage items actually cost to run, and lets you save money by controlling them to only have them on when really needed, or turn them off after you leave if you forgot. Things like electronic devices aren't as easily controlled because most such devices default to off when the power is turned back on at the outlet (i.e. you have to turn on the WeMo, then manually turn on the TV in most cases), but you can turn them off, and even more useful is that the WeMo can monitor when they are manually turned on and off (and even notify you of that, or you can email a log of past activity) or you can set a time range when the device can be used. You program the WeMo from the app, and it then works independently (i.e. your phone can be turned off and the WeMo keeps doing what it's supposed to). This is the only such product (from anyone) that I've found that monitors actual power usage and even includes programable actions based on that, and so nicely done not requiring the app to remain connected to the device for it to keep doing what you programmed it to do. Very well thought out and done Belkin. …

Not AirPlay compatible

These devices cause AirPlay to cut out and Belkin has not been able to correct it. Below was the response I got from them.

Disappointing and Buggy!
Got this as a birthday gift and was really excited to try it out. Unfortunately this product should really still be in the beta te Got this as a birthday gift and was really excited to try it out. Unfortunately this product should really still be in the beta testing phase. It feels like Belkin released it to the public just to get ahead of any potential competition. Setting up the device is a bit of a headache and 50% of the time it still doesn't recognize the device when my iPhone and router are only 10 feet away; and if it does recognize it, it will say it's on when it's off and vice versa. Very buggy!
Also, this thing acts almost as if it were possessed. I completed a software and firmware update, hard reset the device, cleared all rules and talked to Belkin's help desk and it STILL turns on/off randomly every morning around 9am and during the day and middle of the night. The last time it did that, it was a rapid on/off for over 5 minutes. I uploaded a video onto YouTube of it. Because his device is automatically turning on/off it is costing more electricity to operate which is fundamentally the opposite of one of the reasons to purchase it in the first place – to monitor and be efficient with energy consumption.
Overall, it's very disappointing because Belkin was a reputable company and this technology has so much potential. I don't recommend this product, and will actually be returning this one. …

Simple and beautiful product with little "insight"
As WiFi smart plugs go, the Belkin WeMo Insight Switch is beautifully designed, easy to set up and simple to use. Ironically, it l As WiFi smart plugs go, the Belkin WeMo Insight Switch is beautifully designed, easy to set up and simple to use. Ironically, it lacks the useful utility experience eluded to by it's namesake. The app provides little to no real insight. It would be great to see a visualization of the data it collects and review that data by date and time, run reports and ultimately draw some usage conclusions.
Additionally, the plug itself lacks an external power button, making the app the sole option for turning power on and off. Sometimes, it's easier to just flick a switch. …
