Rated 2 out of 5Â by tramse1 A source of some frustration...
I have arrived at the conclusion that one can only operate WeMo switches and the like installed on one network, from any one given device. I can, for example, employ the app on my iPhone to control a switch on a network at our lake place, but the app cannot handle the control of a switch on a network in our home - it cannot even see that it exists. So, if you have WeMo switches and things on three different networks, you'd better have the WeMo app installed on three different devices. This seems like something their programmers should be working-on, because we don't all just stay in one place all of the time...
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tina Works Great for me!!
I love this product - I see that other reviewers have problems with these devices, but honestly I absolutely love the convenience these plugs offer me. I have two lamps in my room that I have on the WEMO plugs and I love the fact that I can turn these lamps on and off without having to get out of my bed. I also love the fact that I can turn the lights on remotely from outside my home - I find this very helpful in the winter time when it is dark outside and also find it useful to turn on the lights before I get in the house when my arms are full and can't easily reach a light switch. I have purchased 4 of these and they are all in use at my home and work just fine.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by MartyMarty Great product but scheduling feature is confusing
I like this product and have (5) of them. I also experience what others are reporting here (IE occasionally falls off WIFI and firmware updates of fail to complete).
The only thing I wish is that the whole scheduling part of the iPhone app be re-thought out. It just doesn't seem intuitive to me. The RULES layout screen is confusing and not organized logically. Every time I go there to change a rule I have to re-learn the interface. Also, once you get many of these in your house then the whole RULES approach to programming the on/off times gets very confusion. I would rather just select the device and then have a list of on/off times and not have a separate RULES list.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by rj35 Good reemote switch
I have 2 of the plug in WeMo switches and 2 wall switches. Installation went fine and all four of these are set up to run on a schedule and run fine. My complaint is the app. I have the app on my iPad and my Android phone, at any given time not all the switches can be found by the app. To make it worse different switches will be found on the iPad and Android at the same moment in time.
