I'm a fan of WEMO
on 19 November 2017
I now own 7 switches, 1 Insight and a Motion sensor. I love them, collected over a number of years and use them to mainly control lamps, but also to turn on and off phone chargers, computers, my home cinema and even to open and close the curtains. When I'm out of the country I use the timer function to turn lights on and off and open and close the curtains. Every morning I use the timer again to open the curtains, so I never have to come downstairs to a dark room. Something that is very important to me. The motion sensor sits by my front door. So as soon as I walk into the house the living room lights come on and the lights turn. No more stumbling around in the dark, I find this very welcoming. The clever app allows you to program the motion control to only turn the lights on after dark.
I don't like using my phone app to switch stuff on/off and actually there is a significant delay. I now have a number of echo devices. The voice control and connectivity to the WeMo devices works perfectly. I bark out commands and my house responds, brilliant, and it response time is much quicker than the app. My only complaint is they are big and don't really blend into the background. I did decide to experiment with the TP-Link version, they are smaller and works fine, but not as much functionality in the app. So I've returned to the WeMo devices.
