Does not play well with others

By David S.

from Avondale, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Belkin WeMo Insight Switch:

We bought three WeMO Insight switches and one wall switch because they seemed like a good idea. The problem is whenever we launch the WeMo app, it shuts off our Apple AirPlay music system which is very frustrating. If you do not use AirPlay, these devices might work for you, but because ours are not compatible with Airplay, we can't use them.

Also found that the customer support from Belkin was basically non-existent.

Concept is great, putting into action, not so good!

Great when it works; tends to disconnect

Comments about Belkin WeMo Insight Switch:

This product is great if you want to monitor your usage like your TV, etc (or setting time limits for kids watching TV). You can set it to turn off when you leave for work and on when you arrive home (scheduled time). I have another wemo switch that I use for a lamp that I schedule to flicker in the morning when it's time to wake up and off when it's time to go to bed. I also have the wemo light switch that I have set to turn off whenever I leave a certain geographical area (using the IFTTT app). This product is really great for home automation. It just tends to disconnect sometimes. And sometimes it takes a while to detect from the app so that creates a problem when you need to switch something on immediately. But when it works, it's awesome. I also noticed that even though it's disconnected from the app, your scheduled automations will still work.

Great product

Comments about Belkin WeMo Insight Switch:

The WeMo Insight switch works just as advertised. I was a little surprised at the lack of installation instructions in the box, but it turns out no more were needed. Setup was incredibly easy - just plugged it in and connected to its wifi ssid through my iPad to get to its administration tool. From there I added it to my secure home network and set up an on/off schedule based on sunset where I live. The usage tool is very nice to show how much power we're using on the lamp. We will definitely buy a few more of these with at least one to be used to determine which devices are drawing the most power so we can adjust our usage.

A better WeMo switch

By Jeff

from Dayton, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about Belkin WeMo Insight Switch:

I purchased an original WeMo switch and found it a bit cumbersome to setup. It also stopped working after a time change. Now, there have been a couple firmware and app updates as well as a new WeMo switch. All in all the platform is working better now than it did when I first starting using it.

The WeMo Insight is great. It's compact, does not have intrusive indicator lights, has a manual touch on / off button, and provides "insight" into the power usage of your connected devices.

It's smart enough to know when a device is running or just in standby mode thanks to a configurable standby threshold wattage. It will also send you usage reports if you like so you know when devices were on and how much energy they used.

From there, you can attach the switch to an IFTTT recipe which opens a whole new world of possibilities. You can manage the switch based on usage time, energy usage, get notifications, and on. I recommend giving it a try as it it builds on Belkin's fairly basic base feature set.

The smartphone app works fairly well and is getting better. It would be nice to have a web interface like Nest. Someone who has many switches is probably going to find the existing interface a bit tedious.

I can recommend this product to anyone who likes to take control of their gizmos and appliances but is not interested in one of the fee based automation services or those that have additional complexity with home gateways, etc.

Comments about Belkin WeMo Insight Switch:

The Belkin WeMo Insight switch is great. It works as advertised and am very pleased with it. It was very easy to set up and took no time to connect to the my home WiFi network. It's worth the money.
