5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 23 Nov 2012
By Greg
Style Name:Switch
Summary: I recommend this product.

- Size: Ok. A smaller unit would be welcome. The width of the unit can prevent neighbouring plug sockets from being used. However, this may not be the case depending on the chosen power supply (e.g. surge protection power strips or power sources with a larger distance between sockets).
- Build quality: Very good.
- Initial set up: Easy.
- Weight: Appropriate.
- Design: Nice.

Functionality + iOS Application:
- Load time: As of version 1.4 the app takes a couple of seconds to load.
- Works perfectly.
- Easy to use.
- Very customisable.
- Extremely responsive. Triggered switches are nearly instant (under a second).
- Switches and status can be triggered and viewed remotely. (Handy for cases of "Did I leave the *item of choice* on?")

- Allows for fairly specific rules.
- Rules can be set for:
- Weekends
- Weekdays
- Individual days
- Rules allow for:
- Turn on only.
- Turn off only.
- Turn on then off.
- Keeps time perfectly.
- Active rules can be overridden easily.

- Set up: Fairly straight forward.
- Functionality:
- Works perfectly.
- Responsiveness: Very good. 8 seconds for IFTTT 'recipes' to trigger. (e.g. recipe 'if email contains tag '#hall-light' turn on hall light).
- Straight forward set up.
- Allows for interesting use. (e.g. turn on a fan if the weather is over 18 degrees Celsius).

Product packaging: Very nice, good quality, easy to open, Apple-like, no nonsense. Would be easy to re-package.

Price (As of 2012-11-23, 39 at Amazon) :
- Single unit: Slightly expensive.
- Multiple units: This would get expensive quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars WeMo Belkin switch 17 Jan 2013
By Cheryl
Style Name:Switch|Verified Purchase
FANTASTIC! It operates from an app on my iPhone and it accepts programmes which it calls rules you can make on your iPhone. I find it easier to work than the conventional automated switches for home security and switching on of lights etc. You have a remote facility too which you need to enable in your app settings once you've set up the WeMo. You must download the app first, plug in the switch wherever you want it and the go to the app and follow the onscreen steps to set it up. I can switch lights and whatever else is attached to it on from Australia or wherever I am in the world through a wifi connection. Absloutely first class.

Style Name:Switch with motion sensor
Couldn't get it working with the Android app. Kept losing connection. Tried restoring the two devices a few times, but gave up after an hour and a half of frustration.

Style Name:Switch|Verified Purchase
I wasted three hours of my life trying to get this to work with my network and iPad. I tried every fix on the Belkin support website and looked at independent forums for help. The fact is that this product seems to fail more often than it works. Amazon should not be recommending it to their customers in my view. A great concept but save your money until they have got it to work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Falls off the network 20 May 2014
Style Name:Switch|Verified Purchase
I have 5 of these. When these devices work, they work very well.

However, my experience has been that they fall off the network a lot. The only way to restore them onto the network is to reset them (turn them on and off from the plug). Isn't the point of an automation switch not to have to be on site to manipulate them?

They are also too big. On most of my dual sockets I cannot put plug two devices in side by side.

The registration process on the iPhone app does not always work first time either.

Definitely some room for improvement here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super easy & works well 24 Nov 2013
By A. Shah
Style Name:Switch|Verified Purchase
Really easy to install - worked like a charm. The app provides an easy step-by-step guide.
Sometimes the app does not recognize the device but that seems to be an issue with the wifi router.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lost wifi signal 18 Jun 2013
Style Name:Switch|Verified Purchase
I had some recent Virgin internet issues and my router needed to be restarted.

Every time the Wemo's had to be re added to the wifi from scratch as they didn't pick up the signal gain.

As long there is no lost wifi signal they are very good

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work for me 28 April 2014
Style Name:Switch|Verified Purchase
I've bought Belkin kit before and all but one item has failed to work out of the box or given up the ghost after a while, so I should've known better. I was looking for a Home Automation solution that didn't cost an absolute fortune and was suckered into looking at this. I couldn't even get it working with my Apple set up. I have the latest products and operating systems, including an Airport Extreme running 2.4GHz and 5GHz on 802.11ac. The Wemo didn't detect my 5GHz signal (the one I use) so presumably it has no support for it. Then it said there was a firmware update on the iPad app so I let that run through until it said it was completed and the blue LED on the Wemo stopped flashing. Then it said there were no devices, then it said a firmware upgrade was available and it just seemed to repeat this sequence in a never ending loop. I never got it to work. Having previously spent days managing not to get one of their top of the range modem/routers working, I wasn't going to get suckered into this and have returned it to Amazon. There is also a significant security flaw reported for these devices - something about creating open ports in your firewall that are inadequately protected and which provide a mechanism to get into your network. Working for an ant-fraud company, I tend to be more paranoid about this stuff than most people.

It just confirms to me that Belkin make quite attractive (if bulky) equipment, but they are difficult (sometimes impossible) to set up and have many limitations and flaws. I don't think I'll ever buy any more Belkin products.
