Top Customer Reviews
I set up two of these. The first one hung twice trying to get it to connect - after some unplugging and re-plugging - and starting/restarting the app I finally got it to connect - entered my wifi info and we were away. It then did a firmware update for a couple of minutes and now seems to work like a champ.
The second one seemed to realize that I already entered my wifi criteria and skipped that step - nice touch.
I bought one of these to set a more complex timer for a collection of old cellphones I have on chargers. I only want them to charge 3 days a week, on off peak hours. It was easy to setup that schedule, and it seems to be working well so far. I will update this review if anything changes over time.
NOTE: These seem to work fine when away from the house as well - you don't have to have your phone on the same wifi network to use them.
Relevant background to my skill levels:
I bought a couple of the plugs so that I could experiment with how to automate my home. I am neither a software or hardware engineer, however I am a (very highly) qualified engineer and I have self taught myself a lot about network hardware & application of software packages. I have an advanced router with repeater, fully LAN & WAN connected house, with network switches, POE devices etc. that I installed & runs pretty cleanly.
First of all the app - I am still on 2nd level support waiting for a response to an issue where I am patient zero. I can create a rule, but it does not give me the choice of days. It is the same rule every day or no rule at all. I have tried installing the app on 2 i devices, same issue(the even have different itunes accounts to further firewall them from each other) So the app is highly buggy. App version 1.17.1.
2nd, the switch(es) I have RMA'ed one of my 2 as I still could, the first one I am stuck with. The 2nd one experienced worse functionality issues than the first one. It had to go as this is a defective unit.
The rules limited me, so I tried anyway.
Initial first time setup was quite smooth & I was initially impressed. (Hadn't realized the rules issues yet)
Paired it to Alexa, that was pretty smooth too (Still impressed)
Ran it for a few days, had fun having Alexa switch it on & off etc.
Then we had a power outage. Big system failure on the WEMO.
After restarting power, everything else came back up properly.
I tried restarting the first switch (the still semi functional one that is not RMA'ed) several times to see if it would boot up, it actually would not boot up until I had pushed the power button several times & actually physically unplugged & replugged it several times.
The WEMO devices were not recognized by the app on my phone, until I switched it to the same wifi network as they were running on. This i snot helpful when you are trying to make a remote access switch.
So after trying & rebooting I have given up.
I cannot set up a smart house with devices that require a full factory reboot and me to delete the app, reset all rules from scratch, every time the power fails or blips.
So sadly I have to say the devices are junk, the app is junk and they need to be fully redesigned before both parts of the system become stable & reliable.
Sorry Belkin, but you also have a lot of people on your own Community pages with many similar problems & your own support is not the one finding solutions, it is other users who have more time to do this than most of the rest of us have.
So, folks, if you read this far, don't waste your time & money, these devices are great in concept, but are far from Implementation Ready for mainstream use.
I have never been paid to write a review - good or bad and I have never been given anything for a review, except for one thing that was sent to me that I didn't want & I contacted the vendor & asked for an RMA (They said donate it - so I did). What you read is my genuine experience.
Sadly 1 star reviews get pushed out of sight on Amazon & they are hard to access (even your own ones).
Thanks for your time.
Updated 3/17 to add rules screenshot showing the app issue with no days selectable. App version 1.17.1 (420001) that I am trying to deal with on 2nd level support. I still struggle with the concept that I am the only person with this issue & that it is identical on 2 unrelated Apple devices that are on different accounts.
Just a side note - when Customers are on the phone with your reps, when discussing the product, it really makes a better impression of your company when they are aware of who your major competitor(s) are. 1st level support had never even heard of TP Link (check the recording it you don't believe me).
So long story short, if you have other WeMo devices in your household, and have trouble getting this WeMo mini to connect, try unplugging as many of the other devices as you can (they will automatically reconnect online after you plug them back in), factory reset the mini, and go through the setup process again. It should hopefully work.
