Surprisingly easy to set up and use. Works well with Amazon Echo. Shows power consumption and has tons of custom options.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jm5860 Bad product
I really wanted to like this product. I purchased 3 of them and 6 months later. I disconnected all of them after trying them to control various items and wemo failed miserably. Connection problems and items turning off for no reason. 3 wemo could not coexist at the same time. Tried all problem solving from website at no avail.

Very simple to setup, works well, tracking power consumption is nice to see, this product will work with an existing wifi network no additional products needed, and setting on/off rules is easy. Most likley this product will have to ordered on-line have yet to see the product on store shelves. The price is a little high especially if you are going to buy several of them could easily spend a few hundred dollars. The product can only have one on/off rule in effect at a time.

This wireless switch definitely works for our family. Needed to be able to turn a switch on behind a sectional. This works great. Love it turns on fron my phone remotely thru my wifi. Definitely would recommend.

It's a little pricey, but I'm glad I bought it. I use this WeMo switch along with an Airport Express to turn my grandfather's 40-year-old hi-fi system into a modern entertainment system. I also used a 3-outlet adapter plug to turn the WeMo plug into a power-strip-of-sorts.
I love Belkin quality. They really seem to put effort into design and QC.
The app is simple, but it's made for phones, not tablets. Looks kinda goofy sitting sideways on my iPad. Also, the app needs some functionality upgrades.
I've been using this a couple times a day for a week now and it's everything I expected.
It was nice to see that the big old McIntosh amp and preamp only draw 80 watts!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeminoleBucsFan I'm starting to really like this HA!
I've been experimenting with home automation (HA) for a couple of years and I've been trying out different devices. I first purchased my home Nest thermostat followed by the Nest smoke/CO2. Now I have moved on to the actual automation for lights and plugged items and I chose Belkin because it works with the Amazon Echo with little effort to setup. I have made a significant investments in the WeMo wireless light control switches (x8), WeMo switch (x2) and the WeMo Insight switch (x6). I started all of this just prior to Christmas and my first one was to operate the Christmas tree lights and the lights decorations on the house. It was easy to set up a rule and let them go and using new LED lights made it so simple to link strand after strand of lights. Now that I have incorporated the light control switches and using Echo (Alexa) to turn on the "Island" lights or "Foyer" or "Hallway". Makes it easy as pie!
The biggest downside is the cost! They are not cheap! I have about $650 in just WeMo products. Setup is easy but time consuming because you must do each device one at a time. Each device requires an update straight out of the box and takes about 10 minutes. Once that is done you are good to go.
I hope this helps with your decision to buy this product. I do recommend them and they do work!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robtheman Great to use
Plugged it in, booted up application on my iphone and whamo: worked the first time. Have had no problems with its use since the initial set up. Works via wifi when I'm in the house or several thousand miles away. Wish I'd bought it sooner. Absolutely no complaints.
