Product Information

    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.

  • Wemo has tortured me for two years now

    I really really wanted this Wemo Switch to work. Sometimes it does work (for short periods) but eventually (1) will lose network I really really wanted this Wemo Switch to work. Sometimes it does work (for short periods) but eventually (1) will lose network connection or (2) will require a firmware update that will hose it.

    After last firmware update - I reset the WEMO again. Took a few tries - but got it back up and running.

    However - and this is trully bizarre...

    Every time I try to turn it on/off with IOS Iphone app - this does work - but somehow it causes iphone to indicate that the "SIM IS INVALID"!!!

    Huh? Then iPhone is essentially hosed until the iPhone is power-cycled,

    How is this WEMO app messing with the SIM card validity? Still scratching my head on that one - makes no sense.

    I am an electronics engineer - and I really want to see this work reliably - but this product has zero value if you cannot trust it to work.

  • Do not buy if you have more than one home

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    Very short sighted product. If you have more than one home useless you can not control switches in more than one location. For e Very short sighted product. If you have more than one home useless you can not control switches in more than one location. For example if you put a switch in at your home and want to put a switch in at the cottage it will not accept it. It accepts the devices but does not display them and even better it locks the IOS device so you can NEVER see the other lights yet they look programed on site
