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.

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. …

Great Product. Wanting more now...

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. …

Nifty little switch

The device itself is a little bigger than I was expe I have to hand it to Belkin, the WeMo Switch is a pretty nifty little device. 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. …

Went on holidays to our home in Tenerife, leaving a WeMo switch controlling the heating back in Ireland. On installing another WeM Went on holidays to our home in Tenerife, leaving a WeMo switch controlling the heating back in Ireland. On installing another WeMo switch in Tenerife, WeMo deleted my remote access to the WeMo in Ireland without warning (I established later that you only have remote access to WeMo's in one location - major shortcoming). Heating left on 24/7. I am a programmer and desperately tried to get telnet, web or any kind of access to the device in order to switch it off. Technical support were totally clueless and unhelpful. Head office did not return any of my calls. If you loose your remote access settings from your mobile to a WeMo device, you are doomed. I wish I had read some of the reviews below before buying this product. …

WeMo Switches and support is a desaster
I used WeMo switches for a long time. With every software update of the app or the firmware of the switches there came up new prob I used WeMo switches for a long time. With every software update of the app or the firmware of the switches there came up new problems. Especialy the rules are not working as it is promised in the maual. The explanations in the manaual are reduced to the max. Nobody can really understand what is meant or the function of the rules (for example the sunset rules). But at least I got the system running. The support ist not worth the name. The answer I heard very often: "there must be a software problem and we try to find a solution". Yo´ll never get a concret answer to your proplem.
The system itself is from it´s functions (as it should be) very good, but there are so many software buggs that everyone will earlier or later stop to use the system because it´s not reliable at all.
Sorry to say, but the system is still in a development phase and not ready at all for a worldwide market. Improve the system, improve your people and improve your support - otherwise WeMo will keep a recomendation as a desater company. …

Limited scope and a bit unstable
I purchased a regular and Insight version of this switch late last winter. They were both OK, but my first negative observations I purchased a regular and Insight version of this switch late last winter. They were both OK, but my first negative observations were: I didn't seem to be able to control them from both my iPhone and my iPad. I got some flaky error. So I just used my iPhone. Then while traveling in September the switch on my router went off by itself. I have my WeMos on a separate network, so I was able to power cycle it successfully. Today, I updated the firmware and my Insight switch is "Not Detected" about 2/3 of the time. Also, I don't see a way to have multiple homes setup on the same WeMo account. It should allow for that for multiple WiFi networks in the same building or for vacation homes. …

"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."
