- What's Included
Grow your existing WeMo network or get started on a brand new one with the F7C029FC WeMo Insight Switch from Belkin. This plug-and-play device gives you the ability to remotely turn any connected electronic device On/Off from the convenience of the Belkin WeMo app on an Android or iOS smart device. Simply plug the Insight Switch into an AC outlet and then connect the electronic device you wish to control by plugging it into the AC pass-through outlet on the Insight Switch and you're ready to go. Through the WeMo app you can now create custom schedules and rules for the electronic device while also setting up email alerts to notify you if the connected device has been on for too long.
On/Off control is great but that's not all the Insight Switch can do. This device will also do exactly what its name suggests; it provides insight into the energy usage of the electronic device. Monitor the devices used most often in your home, or perceived to be the largest energy guzzlers to find out how much each is truly costing you and see where money can be saved by reducing usage of certain devices.
The WeMo Insight Switch is a Wi-Fi enabled device that connects to your home Wi-Fi router to allow it to be controlled through the free WeMo app from an Android smartphone or tablet, iPad, iPhone or even iPod Touch. Its small size allows it to plug into any AC outlet without covering up additional outlets. The Insight Switch can be used on its own or in unison with any of the other Belkin WeMo family of products.

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.
