- What's Included
The Belkin F5Z0340fc WeMo Home Automation Switch + Motion Sensor work together to let you turn almost any plug-in electronic device in your home ON or OFF based on motion, schedules or on a whim through the WeMo app. 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. The addition of the Motion Sensor helps to take energy conservation one step further; connect a lamp and trigger it to only turn ON with movement and automatically OFF after a given amount of time where there is no movement. 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 WeMo App works on mobile iOS (v5 or higher) devices like the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, as well as smart devices running Android 4.0 and later.
About the WeMo System
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 smartphone or tablet. 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.
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 device to your home and not any device specific information.
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.
