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. No matter if it's a lamp, a fan, a heater, curling iron, stereo, you can activate it or put it on a schedule. WeMo uses your home Wi-Fi network, and also operates over mobile Internet—so you can control things even when you're traveling. WeMo is completely modular, allowing you to control as much or as little of your house as you like. All it requires is that your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is running iOS 5 or later.

    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.

    Good idea but not there yet:
    1. You can not set it up remotely. In case your iPhone App crashed (or else), you cannot set WeMo up Good idea but not there yet:
    1. You can not set it up remotely. In case your iPhone App crashed (or else), you cannot set WeMo up remotely. No web access, telnet..etc.
    2. You cannot have more than one locations and controlled by the same App on iPhone.
    3. Tech support not good. I emailed the (first) question above, they simply direct me to online support web page, which is useless.

    I am returning my WeMo.

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.

  • Worst Excecution of a Great Idea I've Ever Seen

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    Einstein said The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That is also th Einstein said The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That is also the description for the WeMo Setup. If you follow the directions you can get the WeMo network up. Getting the WeMo to recognize your WiFi network is highly problematic. After the 4th or 5th time it worked.

    Mine also keeps saying there is a Software Update available even immediately after doing the update. I show that I have 1.12 so it should be current. FWIW after saying it had successfully installed the update, the iPhone App kept saying it was installing the update.

    Now having done the update, the schedule works and I can operate the WeMo at home, but I can't turn on "Remote Access" Maybe it will work tomorrow!!!!! Insanity again.

We have four Apple Time capsules that all look like they are one. It works perfectly. Belkin told me I had to separate the 2.4 form the 5 and rename all as different wifi for these to work. We did buy 8, but that is not a huge amount. Apple should not sell these.
