  • What's Included
  • The Belkin WeMo Home Automation Switch, used with WeMo App (free download), work together to let you turn almost any plug-in device in your home on or off. By having the WeMo Switch and the WeMo App installed, you can create rules from your smartphone that turn the WeMo Switch on or off remotely, or to a schedule that you define, so you can save money by turning devices off when they are not in use - also conserving energy. Just plug your lamp, or fan, or stereo (almost anything) into the WeMo Switch, and you're ready to control it with the WeMo App. And WeMo is completely modular. With multiple WeMo Switches, or WeMo Motion sensors, you can control as much or as little of your home as you like - and you can control it all from anywhere using your smartphone! The WeMe App works on mobile iOS (v5 or higher) devices like the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. WeMo is your home at your fingertips.

    WeMo is a family of simple, ingenious products that allow you to control home electronics from anywhere. Turn them on or off, trigger them with motion, and even put them on a schedule. WeMo lives on your smartphone and uses your home Wi-Fi and mobile internet. Setting up and using WeMo is a snap. WeMo truly is your home at your fingertips. WeMo can make your home a more convenient, easy place to be. When you return home, your lights are on. Leave the room, and the TV turns off. Turn off a light downstairs after you've already turned in. Put your home on a schedule - bedroom and living room lights go on in the evening, the kids' playroom gadgets go off at bedtime.

    The WeMo App
    With WeMo you run your home right from your iPhone. The free WeMo App lets you control individual or multiple devices. Turn off a lamp from the other side of the home. Turn on the lights in the living room, from the other side of town. Schedules are easy to set up too - have a heater or a fan turn on a half hour before you get home to make the temperature just right. With WeMo, it's all up to you. Click here for a video tutorial on setting up your WeMo App.




    WeMo and IFTTT (IF This Then That)
    WeMo is just a great idea - giving you everything you need to make your home a more comfortable place right now. And WeMo is growing every day. For example, WeMo can interact with web-based social media and Apps through a great service called IFTTT. So when the sensor at your front door is triggered, you get an email. Or when the sun sets, your hallway lamp goes on. Very cool. Click here for more information on IFTTT.

    Remote Access for WeMo?
    Remote access is a useful feature for controlling your devices while you're away from home. You can access your WeMo and your WeMo devices anywhere you have an Internet connection through your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. Click Remote access is automatically enabled when you setup WeMo as long as the network you are using has an Internet connection. With remote access enabled you can control your WeMo from anywhere your iOS device has an Internet connection. This includes other Wi-Fi networks or your 3G/4G mobile connection. When the WeMo App is launched outside your home, the App contacts the Belkin cloud, the cloud redirects the phones request to the appropriate home, and then you can see and control all the WeMo devices.

    Control WeMo with More Than One Apple Device
    WeMo will automatically appear on a second iOS device connected to the network. All the customization done on one iOS device will automatically appear on any additional iOS device you connect to the same Wi-Fi network, including WeMo device names, icons and all the rules. You can use as many iOS devices as you like with WeMo without any problems.

    How Many WeMo Devices Can You Control?
    You can add as many WeMo devices as you like. Because each WeMo uses such little bandwidth on your network, you shouldn't notice any side effects. When you setup a WeMo, give it a name, add a picture or create rules - all the information is stored on the WeMo itself. This means that you don't need a hub or a dedicated controller in your home in order for WeMo to work. This means that you can easily control multiple WeMo devices from different iOS devices. When you're away from home all the rules work because your WeMo devices can talk to each other through your home Wi-Fi. Please note however, some routers have a maximum amount of devices they will support. Therefore, some WeMo users may see other devices drop off their network, or only be able to install 1 or 2 WeMo devices at a time.

    Security
    WeMo supports all the latest Wi-Fi security modes including WEP, WPA and WPA2. Therefore WeMo is as secure as you make your home Wi-Fi network. Remote access has been designed with the latest security enhancements in place. In addition to this, the cloud only stores a key that connects your iOS device to your home and not any device specific information.

    Range
    WeMo devices should have the same or better range than most other Wi-Fi devices. Therefore you can put WeMo wherever you get Wi-Fi connectivity using your laptop, tablets or phones. Bad weather and barriers like walls, cabinets, and doors will reduce Wi-Fi Range. If there is an area in your home you have Wi-Fi dead spots you might consider adding a Wi-Fi range extender. WeMo uses very little bandwidth so your very unlikely to see any impact to network performance.

    What Can I Use With My WeMo Switch and Motion Sensor?
    You can essentially control any appliance or electronic device with an on/off switch. A lamp, a fan, a heater, a stereo, you name it. If you can plug it in, you can control it with WeMo. Here are some fun ways that customers are already using their WeMo devices:
    Lighting Control: Connect your WeMo Motion so the room lights up when you enter.
    Radio: Have your favorite station turn on when you enter for the morning shower.
    Air Conditioning Units: Turn on your AC window unit shortly before getting home.
    Air Purifier: Turn on your air purifier shortly before you get home.
    Electric Coffee Maker: Set your morning beverage to practically make itself.
    Privileged Control: Forgot to turn off the TV. WeMo gives you control even when you're not in the room.
    Play Practical Jokes: Set up your WeMo Motion without telling the family and watch the fun ensue.
    Note: The manufacturer recommends you do not set your WeMo to control devices that have important information stored on them (i.e. computers or cable boxes). Valuable information could be lost by abruptly shutting off these kind of devices.

    Works but have to make sure it is close to router. Does not work more than 20' through 2 walls. If ease of setup and ability to set it up manually through usb removal of switch on it to prevent kids from turning it back on, more MORE range. And most of all ability to connect and use it with PC.

    Could not get it to work with my home network. Tried for hours. Even took to work and tried there with no luck. It was just totally inconsistent in its ability to connect to the network and be seen by my iphone (ios 7.2). And believe me, I installed and un-installed the app many times as well as resetting the device. Not sure if it's because both networks are pretty secure and this really needs a more 'open' network to operate properly. But to me, if a device that is connected to the internet (and open to unwanted intrusion) cannot work in a secure network, then it just invites problems that I am not willing to risk. I should add that I am an IT professional with over 30 yrs experience. Good luck to the novices out there.

    I own 8 wemo devices, 2-wall light switches, 2 motion detectors and 6 plug-in switches. They work great. The app has been improved and it is stable and reliable.

    The most critical issue is your phone or ipad has to be on the SAME network SSID, not just the same router in order to work.

    As an example, you cannot be on your guest network when your WEMO devices are on your main network. Most people, including me, make this mistake.

    I also own 2Netcam HD cameras which are integrated into the WEMO app which is nice.

    I wish BELKIN would make dim-able light switches so I don't have to use my phone to dim the lights. And switched outlets, and outdoor motion sensors.

    Absolute garbage. Install your first one, then try to get it working on another phone, good luck, it just won't work. So, you can have a bunch of switches but only one person in the house can turn them on and off.

    What a bunch of idiots.

    Two of the three units shipped did not work, and have to be returned.

    It is unclear as to whether multiple locations can be used with the single app. So far, I have been unable to accomplish this.

    I can't really rate a product I don't own but WHY NOT FOR ANDROID?? Big FAIL on Belkin's part and any other manufacturer that doesn't support android devices! How many consumers own android devices??......you dropped the ball on this one!

    Probably very nice, seems like an extremely useful idea... however, for those few million of us who don't have Apple phones, completely unuseable.
    Why no apps for 'droid or Windows phones?
