This review is from: Belkin WeMo Home Automation Switch and Motion Sensor Bundle for Apple iPhone,iPad and iPod Touch (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Belkin is a name that I trust, I have had several USB hubs from Belkin and they have all performed well.
However I have had nothing but trouble from this, potentially very clever and useful device.
It was packaged well, but with minimal instructions, the tiny sheet that did come with the device was printed so small it was barely legible, even with reading glasses.
Why not print the instructions, which as after all essential large enough to be easily read.
WeMo app downloaded from apple's app store, where the app has been given consistently good ratings.
The app was enabled and connected to the wemo fine. I had real problems getting it to connect to my router though. In the end turned everything off and on again and finally the connection was made.
But after 2 hours of fiddling it still cannot find the switch or movement sensor.
Now I might be doing something wrong, but I cannot see what. The app is just not able to communicate with the switch.
I had high hopes for this product, and was going to use it for fun purposes, like turning the desk light on and off in my other half's office, but I am so disappointed it just does not work.
I will persevere, and if I get it going will share my tips here, and add additional stars as applicable, but at the moment I am far from impressed.
