Belkin WeMo Smart Home Automation Switch review

 

I have some OCD tendencies that are under control now for the most part, but I still freak out about leaving the house unattended for any length of time. I don't mean I have agoraphobia, but I'm afraid someone will break into the house while I'm out,...

Able to program an appliance to turn on/off automatically ; Can override the rules programmed for a Switch anytime ; Can access the Switch from anywhere so long as I have WiFi or cellular access ; Can easily automate appliances in your home to increase...

Enable/disable remote access dance I had to do when adding a new Switch ; Must have a mobile device, as there are no PC or Mac apps for the WeMo devices at this time

Shotty

 

Belkin's a good brand, I've bought other devices from them in the past that performed as they should. Sad this wasn't more then it is, and I bought 2 as well, both are no bueno.

Nice packaging, simple form and design

Does not work as smoothly as it should, instructions are lacking in troubleshooting steps I had to figure out myself and I've been doing this for years. They are connected to a extender of my network and it's just not as easy as the instructions would...

RE: Buyer Beware

 

Like any other home automation solution, it has glitches but most of them have been worked out. Most of the problems I have seen is that they like DHCP Reservations, aka static ip's done through the DHCP. That makes the memo much more useable and stable.

Ok, so I see a lot of negative reviews and they are do mostly because people do not know how to properly reset them. The process takes 2-3 minutes and must be done exactly as stated. Plugin the Wemo, press the reset button until it flashes Orange/Blue....

Sometimes if they aren't used a lot, they can freeze up. RMA if this happens or wait for the next firmware update

Do not buy

 

Belkin has been 'working hard' to fix these problems, but I've had ones of these outlets for 2 years and it never has worked as advertised.

The device works relatively well, it works as a switch which turns on and off a receptacle.

The UI is horrible, and makes this device unusable. not only does it require you to use a smart phone to access, the setup takes several hours to complete successfully. Then your device will suddenly be forgotten after a week or two, or when belkin...

Works fine, once in a while you have to just shut app off and re-open it - but that happens only if you have to change a rule

not for free.. :)
