I have my living room lamps plugged into it. They go on when I enter the room, and shut off 5 minutes after I leave. The sensor works perfectly. Not sure what the previous reviewer was talking about. Also, you can set it to only turn them on during certain hours so the lights aren't coming on during the day.

    1. I haven't had a any problems with setup or operation on our home wifi.
    2. The WeMo app controls the switches both locally and via 4G.

    The Bad:
    1. WeMo app crashes pretty often on my iphone 5 - maybe 1 out of 5 times the app is opened.
    2. WeMo integration with IFTTT is pretty unreliable. I have a switch setup to turn on a lamp at dusk and then off at a set time. The on time can vary by 2 or 3 hours from day to day and same with the off time.
    3. Switch status has to be manually refreshed when viewing with the app to see the latest switch state.
    4. The motion sensor takes some moving around to get it to operate a switch like I wanted. For example, I put it in the TV room and set it up to turn off the lights when no one is in the room. Turns out you can't put it 10 ft away from the couch and have it detect any but large motions. Moving your head or an arm won't always be detected. It it is only a 3 or 4 feet away it will detect small motions that occur while being a zombie in front of the TV.

  • Good Devices and Work as Claimed...IF you have a strong Wifi Router

    When I first began installing these devices I noticed I'd lose them from the device list. I'd have to reset the router to get the When I first began installing these devices I noticed I'd lose them from the device list. I'd have to reset the router to get them reconnected so they could be rediscovered. As I began to actually depend on the devices it got more and more annoying when they'd drop off the device list. I had wifi extenders which seemed to help, but I'd still lose devices.

    For various other reasons I opted to upgrade my wifi router. The new one seemed to work worse than the old one, with ALL the WEMO devices dropping off in one gulp. I blamed the router...but before junking it I thought I'd try some "tricks" to reduce interference and to promote a stronger signal. They worked. Turns out my router was fine...it was where it was placed, and interference from my neighbors' routers that was creating all my wifi troubles.

    So I've had a good solid several weeks of strong wifi connections and reliable use. The built-in rules for WEMO are very nice but tying the WEMO devices to the IFTTT system really adds some unique functionality. I can turn on my bedroom light and, at the same time, the lamps turn on as well. I have a heater in my garage that only turns on if it's actually cold outside. When my family comes home the outdoor lights turn automatically when my smartphone tells them we've returned to the area.

    I have 16 wemo devices now and I fully intend on adding at least two more (so that all the lights on one floor are WEMO enabled).

    But I'll agree with some of the other posters...if you've got a weak wifi signal, or wifi interference, they're annoying as heck to set up and maintain. And even if you do set them up, despite the interference/weak-signal, they may not function as you'd hoped (may not connect completely to IFTTT services).

    So only get these if you've got a strong, reliable, wifi signal where-ever you plan on placing the wemo.

  • Wemo does not adjust for sunrise and sunset

However, despite setting and re-setting the rules numerous times, they will not turn on at sunset and off at sunrise per the rules I set. It may start following the sunset/sunrise rules, but then does not appear to keep up with the daily changes or change to daylight savings time. Turns on now at 5 pm even though sunset is at about 7 pm. Minimalist instructions and support make it difficult to troubleshoot. I have to rate it a 1 because the main reason for purchasing this product is to automate the lights so that they go on at sunset and off at sunrise and it does not do that reliably.

  • Sunset doesn't update daily

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    I have to redo the setting to turn on at sunset every few days. Say I set it today and sunset is at 5:52 instead of updating daily I have to redo the setting to turn on at sunset every few days. Say I set it today and sunset is at 5:52 instead of updating daily it will stay at 5:52 until I redo the setting. Whats the point of having sunset as an option if it doesn't update on it's own?
