Style Name:Insight Switch

Product Description

Did you forget to turn off the curling iron? Are the kids still watching TV? Is the dog sitting in total darkness because you’re running late? The Wemo Insight Switch gives you control of your lamps and small appliances whenever you want, wherever you choose and gives you on-demand reports about energy consumption and costs. Paired with Amazon Alexa, you can control your home with your voice. When Wemo works with Nest Thermostat, you can set your lights to turn off automatically when you leave the house or go into away mode. No central hub or subscription is required. Also has an on/off switch on the unit, in case the Wi-Fi goes down. Compatible with Apple iOS 8 or higher and Android 4.1 or higher.

Style: Insight Switch
I have 5 of these units all operating daily since December 2014, using on-off rules defined in the iOS app. They always turn on reliably in accordance with the programmed rules. However every day at least one of the five randomly fails to turn off (different one each time) requiring me to regularly check the app or appliance/light and manually turn off the failed one. (This defeats the object for having them) All units have the latest firmware 2.00.7166.PVT and the latest iOS App to control them 1.10.2 .
The units are maximum 20ft from the wifi hub, and signal strength at the unit is excellent checked by independent wifi analyser tools. There is also no co channel interference on the WIFI channel I am using. This would suggest that the firmware to these units is still only at prototype phase and flawed. I have cleared the units and reprogrammed all the units from scratch and within a couple of days they are back with their random failure to switch off. I would recommend waiting until the firmware is fixed or updated as there is a serious reliability issue with them when programmed to switch off at a certain time. (Maybe the switch software needs to be rewritten to ensure a multiple switch off pulse is sent?) If this could be fixed these units would be excellent.

Following extensive investigation of my issues by the WEMO support team and their engineering experts during February, it has transpired that if one does a soft reset (not defined in any instructions) and then reset the name of the device and the rules, they all work perfectly. It transpires that a soft reset clears down garbage in the Belkin Cloud server that can be prior present even for new devices.

Blew as soon as it was plugged in and fired a burning ember across room which had to be stamped out. It blew my breaker and I am having to return it hours after it arrived

It worked well at first (no more than 3 days) and then completely dropped connection from my network for no apparent reason. Countless number of resets, reboots, firmware updates, app reinstalls simply fails to resolve the problem. I personally believe that this item should not be on sale in its current state as it just doesn't work - Belkin you need to sort this out!

By RobinJ TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 14 Feb. 2014
Style: Switch Verified Purchase
The WeMo switch is a very nice idea, poorly implemented. Once you've downloaded the WeMo app, installing the switch is pretty straightforward, although it's worth plugging it in close to your router in the first instance - it seems to get noticed more reliably.Then you can turn it on and off from your phone (or tablet).

The problems start when you try to set up rules to control the switch. Belkin say you need at least Android v4, which I have, but attempting to save a rule, having set it up, invariably results in the app hanging. That's assuming I've managed to set up the rule at all, which isn't guaranteed. A search of the relevant Web communities indicates that many users have exactly the same experience. Belkin technical support isn't good. There are several dead links to articles whose titles indicate that they address precisely these issues.

So why have I given the device 3 stars? Because, once you've linked the device to your wireless network, you don't need the WeMo app at all. Join the IFTTT.com site, link your device and account and set up whatever rules you like from there. It all works easily, transparently and reliably. Belkin seem to have shot themselves in the foot by reinventing the wheel and making it square.

There is one remaining problem (that I know of). The switch has a habit of turning itself on a little after midnight if no on-off sequence spans two days. Belkin appear to know about this because there's a support article about it. Or rather, there's the title of a support article. Naturally, the link is broken. There's an obvious work-around: simply set up a rule to turn the switch off at, say 00:15 but that's a bit primitive.

So, in summary, I like the device and find it very useful now that I've spent some time tinkering and understood what works, what doesn't and how to get round the latter. But it could be so much better.

## Update
- 4 years later: 10th November 2016:
- Two WeMo Switches still in working order.
- Firmware for devices continues to be updated.
- iOS app still works with old devices (e.g. iPhone 4s).

Summary:
- Recommend status:
- At time of purchase: Yes.
- Four years later: There are no doubt many more and newer products on the market by now, including a newer WeMo model. More choice than what was available at the time of purchase. The below review still stands.
- Note: This is a review of the original WeMo Switch, not any other WeMo product.

### Unit:
- Size: 3/5. 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. some power strips have a larger distance between sockets)
- Build quality: 4/5
- Initial set up: 4/5.
- Weight: Appropriate.
- Appearance: Clean. Minimal.
- Noise: Runs silently. Emits a single click sound when switching a device on or off.

### Functionality + iOS Application:
- Using with: iPhone 4S running the newest OS available to it.
- Load time: As of version 1.15.2 the app takes a couple of seconds to load (i.e. cold launch app, find devices).
- Function: 4/5. Works perfectly.
- Ease of use (once set up): 5/5.
- Very customisable.
- Responsiveness: 5/5. 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?")

### Scheduling:
- Allows for fairly specific rules.
