Product Information

  • Overview

    The Belkin WeMo Switch and the free WeMo app work together to let you turn electronics on or off from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch wherever you are.

  • 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.

Secure once married to your wireless network. I wasn't sure it would work away from home, but it works awesome over 3G / 4G with my VPN to home. It is like I am just there at home.

    Wish it was a little cheaper in price, but works as advertised. The rules work good. I was worried the app would have to stay open to make it turn on and off with a rule. It looks like the switch has some smarts and knows what time it is.

    Now I want about 10 more for the house.

The device itself is a little bigger than I was expecting, but setup was a lot simpler than expected. I had no problems getting it up and running, nor connecting it with IFTTT, which was a very nice surprise to see. Plain and simple, it's a very simple device with a fair amount of potential. That said, it /is/ a little limited in what it can do right now, hence the 4/5. Other than that, no issues with it at all.

    I have had an almost perfect experience with Wemo. I use the Switch for turning on table lamps around the house using the free App I have had an almost perfect experience with Wemo. I use the Switch for turning on table lamps around the house using the free App. This gives manual control, a variety of timer controls (time of day, sunrise/ sunset and off sets of sunrise/ set), there is even a random mode for when you are away from home which activates between sunset - rise using your geographical location to know when that is. They can also be automated via IFTTT.
    Set up via the App is so simple it's almost child play.
    If I have one complaint, it is with remote access via the app. The app states that it is continually updating firmware. This stops when i return to my home network. I get round this with IFTTT where i can send an email, text etc to remotely control the units if needed.

    Basically they used to work fine and since the latest update they don't respond with the network. Even if you get them setup it se Basically they used to work fine and since the latest update they don't respond with the network. Even if you get them setup it seems the wifi on the plugs turns itself off after a certain amount of time and then they are undiscoverable. Belkin need to change this back quick or a lot of people are buying really expensive pieces of plastic. Revert back to the old update settings and give us that as an update or sort it out properly
