Style Name: Energy Conserve Socket Verified Purchase
Belkin - you've really let me down here! I am a huge Wemo fan and evangelist - eight wall switches, six lamps controlled through the outlet and have two sensors. Then I bought three of these. My wife just smelled a burning odor and found this plug smoking in our wall. Please see photo below.

Please note that this product could have killed my children. I just feel lucky my wife found this in time. I have three of these that are now useless. Wemo/Belkin - I do expect to hear from you with a plan for taking these back. I do note additional burned plugs in other reviews and have also reported this item to the CPSC. Sigh - do not buy this.

***Update*** March 15, 2015

HOURS after I posted this review, Belkin contacted me telling me how critical it was for them to get in touch with me to rectify this. I replied immediately. Two weeks went by and I heard back from them on March 5th asking for my receipt and the photo taken of the burned Conserve Socket. I sent these to them on the same day with a request for them to contact me immediately. Amazingly, two weeks later I still have not heard back from Belkin about this. I can only surmise that I received my initial email because Belkin only cares how my review affects their sales and could not care less about nearly burning my home down with my three children inside it. For shame Belkin!! You've officially converted this Wemo evangelist into a Wemo hater.

While it works, it works fine, as stated, you can set the timer to 3 different settings of 30 mins, 3 hours or 6 hours and the unit would shut off after that time.

However, I wouldn't recommend using this with anything that draws a lot of power (a heater for example). In the manual it states this outlet can handle upwards to 1800 watt. It doesn't, and I found out the hard way.

I used this with my radiating heater. It has 2 settings, 900 watt and 1500 watt. While using this with 900 watt, it works fine. However one day I used this on the 1500 watt settings, 10 mins in, I started to smell burning plastic and saw this outlet puffing smoke.

As you can see in the photo, part of it melted. Good thing I was nearby, I wouldn't wanna imagine what would have happened if I wasn't. It was already past my 1 year warranty as this was the first time I used the max setting on that heater. But from here on I would be careful with any Belkin products that has electrical currents running through.

So, if you are using this for a lower wattage use, it's great for what it does. Just don't use it with anything that draws lots of power.

Style Name: Energy Conserve Socket Verified Purchase
I purchased this two years ago. It worked really consistently to power a Dyson AM05 Hot + Cool Fan Heater until this winter.
The time it stayed on seemed really reduced. 6 hours became 3 or less. A few weeks later I started smelling burnt plastic or burning wires.

My immediate thought was that the Dyson unit was on fire. It was not and showed no sign of any issue. I unplugged it and ran a test with another outlet without the Belkin socket. The Dyson ran fine with no odor emitted.

That's when I noticed the Belkin plug. It must have shorted out and was burning whenever I activated it. See the attached photos as both the front an rear have fire damage.

I will send it back to Belkin and see what their reply is. This is obviously a major concern.

I originally bought three of these, as I knew I wanted at least two right away. I sort of figured another usage would show itself eventually.

Anyway, I bought one for my stereo system, as I like to go to sleep with music. Yet, I wanted it to turn off the entire system after so many minutes, as I usually fall asleep pretty quickly. The 30 minute setting was perfect for this, and it performs flawlessly. I really like that the unit has a LED on the same side as the button, so you KNOW when it's on, AND, it's a green LED that turns bright immediately, then drops to a dim glow until the unit turns off. This is wonderful for bedrooms as the light is so low, you don't even notice it.

The other usage I got it for is to turn off my space heater in the winter time, as this unit can handle up to the full 15 amps of pass through current. I tested that, and that also works. I am not sure whether I will use the 30 minute, the 3 or 6 hour setting. See this is for my computer room, and I expect I'll only need it for the first 30 minutes, as my computer does a good job of heating the room after it's on a while.

Update: After only a couple of months, one of the units stopped working as a switch. It now just passes the electricity through, effectively leaving it turned on forever. This makes it worthless when it fails.

Style Name: Energy Conserve Surge with Remote Verified Purchase
We bought two of these to use for the computer and game room. We wanted a way to turn off the power drain when items were not in use. The remote capability of this unit seemed like just what we were looking for. The first one we bought initially seemed fine and so we bought the second one. When the second one arrived, the remote did not function at all. We did some trouble shooting and narrowed it down to the switch function just not happening. If the switch had made a good connection, everything would have worked. About that time, the first one's remote started behaving badly. The light on the switch was blinking as if a connection was constantly being made. Also, the switch started to feel a little spongy, like connections were not being firmly made.

While the surge protectors themselves may be fine, we bought these for the advertised functionality of the remote switch. We are an adult only house, no kids pushing the switches or playing with them. The switches appeared to be be very poor quality. Instead we bought the green Tripp units, which were a iittle more, but didn't have any switch to worry about.
