Product Description

The Belkin WeMo Switch and WeMo Motion Kit gives you wireless control of your home appliances and electronics, turning devices of your choice on or off as soon as movement is detected. The sensor plugs into an outlet and detects motion up to 10 feet away. It then sends a wireless signal to the WeMo Switch to turn the connected device either on or off. Using the free WeMo App you can program a light to turn on when you walk into the house or the TV to turn off when you leave. In addition to motion control, you can always use the WeMo App to turn your electronics on or off, anytime, from anywhere. You can also connect your Motion sensor to IFTTT.com so you can get email or SMS notifications when your children get home from school, or even when your cat visits the litter tray. WeMo uses your home Wi-Fi network, and also operates over mobile internet-so you can even control things while you’re away. WeMo is completely modular, allowing you to control as much or as little of your house as you like. WeMo is your home at your fingertips

WeMo Motion Turns Electronic Devices On/Off

The WeMo Switch and WeMo Motion Kit makes it easy to set schedules for home appliances and electronics and turn devices on and off remotely. The sensor detects movement up to 10 feet away and wirelessly signals the WeMo Switch to turn the connected device on or off, depending on your preference. The sensor's 6-foot cord lets you place it in the optimal position.

To get started, simply plug the sensor's A/C module into an outlet in your home and position the sensor. Next, plug the WeMo Switch into a separate outlet, and plug a device like a heater, fan, lamp, or stereo into the switch.

Next, download the free WeMo app from the Apple app store to your iPhone or iPad. Connect the sensor and switch to your home Wi-Fi network and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.

Control Devices Using Your iPhone or iPad

You can use your iPhone or iPad to tell the sensor what to do, like have a heater turn off when you exit a room. You'll have wireless control wherever you go--the WeMo kit connects to mobile Internet networks so you can program the sensor to turn devices on or off even if you're away from home.

Set Schedules with WeMo App

The free WeMo app makes it easy to set schedules for appliances and electronics in your home. Use your iPhone or iPad to program a lamp to turn on or off at a certain time of day.

Add Multiple Switches and Motion Sensors for Increased Control

The WeMo kit is completely modular, allowing you to control as much or as little of your house as you like. You can add an additional WeMo Switch to provide control of more areas of your home. Additionally, multiple switches can be linked to one sensor--turn on a light and heater or a set of lights at the same time with only one sensor.

Warranty and Compatibility Information

The Belkin WeMo Switch and WeMo Motion Kit is compatible with Apple devices (iOS 5 and higher) and your existing Wi-Fi router. It is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

This product is not ready. The lag is unbearable. Constantly searching for devices. Tries to upgrade firmware 1540 all the time (or firmware upgrade never finishes). Motion sensor blue led indicates detections reliably, but the app has either a huge delay or unreliable detections showing. This causes the rule not to trigger most of the time. Just a simple rule to turn on switch for 1 minute when detecting motion fails 9 times out of 10.
I drop my expectation to just turning on/off the switch repeatedly. Guess what? It stops switching (long app delay) after 3 clicks. The control sometimes comes back after several (tens of) seconds, but not always. I repeat this on/off switching test and find the longest continual switching I can get it to work is 8. Granted that most folks don't do this but it shows the usability of the communication protocol (or lack of).
A normal use case would be starting the app and turn the switch to on/off. Again, the lag is unbearable. It doesn't show incorrect switch state. It just doesn't respond.
Taking picture to use as icon doesn't work either. It just shows white background.

Maybe all my issues are relating to old firmware. But firmware upgrade doesn't work. Any idea what to do except to return it?

Package Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Let me answer the first question - what exactly does this do?

It controls ONE light. One side plugs in between the light and the wall - this is called the switch. It can be operated via the iphone/ipad app on or off. The other thing is a sensor. It also plugs into the wall, but does not control a second light. Instead, the sensor monitors motion via the round can thing and reports that motion to the iphone/ipad app. The app allows you to set "rules" that turn on and off the switch based on movement or time of day. You can adjust the sensitivity of the sensor and the time the switch stays on after motion ceases. By having the switch and sensor separate, you can put the sensor at the bottom of a flight of stairs and the switch on a light at the top, so once you start up the stairs the light turns on.

You MUST have an iphone/ipad/itouch to use this. It is entirely dependent on the app.

Good

The switch, once set up, actually works as intended.
The sensor seems to work well and has a decent range of motion.
It works even when traveling (you dont have to keep your iphone/ipad in the same wifi network).
It integrates with IFTTT, assuming you know what that is (google it - it is an "if this than that" service).

Bad

The set up can be problematic, not because of wifi issues, but because the app kept freezing on my ipad.
The sensor does not include a light sensor - allowing you to not turn on the light if it is already bright in the room.
The switch makes a loud click when it turns on or off.
There are much less expensive alternatives.
The switch does not allow dimming - it is on or off.

Package Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Conceptually, this is an outstanding product and Belkin has taken phenomenally complex home automation products and made some good strides to a more mainstream level. Sadly, Belkin didn't take this product to full bright.

This is an expensive product that essentially turns on or off one outlet based on motion detection or remote control from an iDevice. The design of the product sucks up two full outlets, and in some cases can rob four. The device feels cheaply made. The installation is not as dirt dumb simple as the in box drawings led me to believe. All these things wouldn't be a big problem if the device did something useful and responded quickly. I've set this up to turn on a light in my finished basement. Instead of turning the light on the instant the motion detector sees me move, it takes a good few seconds to turn on the light. It also requires a fair amount of movement to activate - if I'm working on my computer in the room, every 15 minutes the light turns off.

I can see, however, somebody that is in love with home automation, and maybe invested in X10 technology, would absolutely adore this device. I'm pretty sure the price of admission for X10 is higher than this simple kit. I'm trying so hard to find a good use for this device, and frankly I'm coming up completely stumped in my house.

Installation requires some pretty twisted steps to work. First step is to download and install the WeMo app from the iTunes app store. There is no iPad version of the app - so this beautiful app is relegated to the 2X pixilated view on an iPad, a really big miss in my opinion.

Plug in the outlet side of the equation (the part that has a three prong outlet on it. Way easier said than done, plug it in.

This is a great idea for those who have to walk across a room to turn on a lamp. The "turn on" feature is activated by your motion. Unfortunately, I haven't had the success I had hoped for. Make sure the motion sensor is above the level of your cat or dog, or the light will be constantly turning on. You do set the hours for the motion sensor to activate the light. Even so, the instructions for setting up this system are sketchy. Also, sometimes it just doesn't work - I've had the switch device get lost from my iPhone; and, I've had the motion sensor show "motion" permanently - when this happened I had trouble getting the light to come on. I've had to redo the setup once. I love the idea and when it works right it is great. Maybe an update of the app will solve the problems I'm having. Or maybe, my room setup is just not conducive to this product working well. I'm keeping the product and hanging in there, because when it works it's really great.
