There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Install failed in connection of phone app to device now device basically cannot connect to anything and cannot been seen on network. Reset switch, phone, turned off power, nothing works just blinking green wifi symbol then blinking orange wifi symbol then solid green then poof.
My favorite answer from them is to move it closer to router, a light switch hahahahahaha BTW my wifi is super strong so that aint it either.
Setting this up properly does require some networking knowledge and how to properly implement security. The switches both work on hidden and broadcasted SSID Wifi networks. Half of my switches work on the hidden SSID and the other half are connected to the broadcasted SSID. They do support security password keys, but if you want an extra layer of protection, turn on your router/basestation's MAC address control to enable only recognized and authorized devices access to your wireless network.
I have assigned static IP address to these switches by way of their MAC addresses, to avoid IP conflict when power cycling happens to my router. This is the general rule for all of my stay-at-home devices.
My eleventh switch will be arriving tomorrow. The first switch I bought in 2013 is still working to this day. All switches are still working reliably.
Works perfectly with NEST thermostat, Amazon Echo and IFTTT.
Update Dec 2017
1. The WEMO App first lets you name each switch and then allows you to set up "Rules" for unattended on/off times to a switch or a group of switches. So that a switch or a group of switches will turn on/off at a scheduled time.
2. The Amazon Alexa App allows you to first create intelligent named "Groups" of switches, such as "Exterior Lights", "Interior Lights", "Living Room Lights", so you can use voice control to address them in a meaningful way. "Alexa, turn off Living Room Lights" or "Alexa, turn off All Lights."
3. IFTTT will integrate all the functionality of your smart devices with WEMO and ALEXA (NEST and others too). i.e. The GPS in a smart phone can be used to create an invisible fence that can turn WEMO switches on/off as you pass in/out of its perimeter. My living room lights and exterior lights come on when I'm about half a mile from home. NEST can also sense I'm coming home and start cooling/heating the house. The are thousands of "recipes" ready to use.
With these three Apps together, there are thousands of possibilities to automate your home if you are willing to experiment. These are just some of the ways I use mine.
Update March 2018
1. Recently purchased the Wemo Mini Smart Plug to make the uplights in the kitchen cabinets smart. Set up was easy but I first had to add the switch's MAC address to my basestation before connecting to one of my home's SSIDs.
2. That makes twelve switches and all are active and functioning as you can see.
3. The Wemo App is very laggy, but luckily with voice activation, I rarely launch the app except to take screenshots. I use Alexa's voice recognition instead. The Mac version of the app needs to support higher resolution displays like the Android one does.
Coudn't get a signal from it. Tried everything.
Emailed customer service no reply.
Chatted with them. They spent 45 minutes with me before they asked me to disassemble my light switch. I had an electrician put it in. I PROBABLY could have done it, but after 45 minutes, after which they asked me to turn off and on my phone and then find another phone to check with, I wasn't about to start disassembling stuff.
Getting an RMA from them was like pulling teeth. Its been 10 minutes and I still don't have an email from them about the RMA (which is a whole other department that requires approval).
This is the kind of service I'd expect from a tiny chinese company no one has ever heard of. Now that I know Belkin is like this, you can believe I'll never buy anything from them again.
Top international reviews
I switched to TP-Link and had no problems, have another 2 on order to replace these ones.
Even now one of the switches consistently would drop connection and unpair, even though I have a small home and this switch is pretty close to the router. Wemo tech support is GARBAGE- I used the app twice to put in a support request ('would you like Wemo to contact you with your problem?') only for them to send me a generic 'case closed' email.
Would I still buy my 5 switches from them again? No.
Will never buy WEMO again.
1. Wires come pre-stripped, but needed a bit more insulation stripped off. Not a big deal.
2. The switch is quite bulky compared to the one that I pulled out. Was a pretty tight fit into the switch box.
Other than that, comes well packaged and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. Install was easy, and didn't have any issue with the WeMo app or syncing up with Alexa. Will be buying a couple more if they ever go on sale.
I have schedule for sunset, sunrise, specific hours. Timeouts, etc.
App is better in iOS than Android
Once installed, the switch can be operated without setting up. Perfect in case it was unable to communicate with my access point.
Setting up the switch from the app was a different story. I have had issues trying setting up the switch as it wasn't able to communicate to the app. It was either an issue with the connecting to the switch or the Wifi password was incorrect. The issue turned out to be that this switch (or the firmware that was currently installed) could only connect to 2.4Ghz Wifi connections. Once everything has been setup though, the switch works pretty well.
The app is straightforward to use and allows the user to enter a routine schedule to turn the light on at anytime.
update none of these smart things are professional equipment. Have to repair and reconfigure every week its junk. That goes for ecobee and weemo too. Avoid any smart devices.
After 3 years of operation, I've found that even operating on just one network, the app is very buggy - it crashes a lot, takes a long time to refresh devices (even where there is a strong WiFi signal), and devices often just drop off altogether.
Belkin needs to do some major software and firmware updates. Until then, I do not recommend buying this product.
Note: the unit I received was previously opened and the wires were twisted (i.e. for wire nut). Not completely happy but the unit looked undamaged and seems to work fine.
