Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shayedout Belkin WeMo Insight Switch
Works great once set up. I've had to call customer support to talk me through this (I also have WeMo lightbulbs) but think their products are great. Curious to see if it really saves on the electric bill (and justify spending $50 on this) since it cuts out "phantom power" drawing electricity from appliances when not in use. If nothing else, I can turn my fan on remotely to get the air moving in my apartment before I arrive home... or, turn it off remotely if I forget to before leaving the apartment.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Not ready for prime time.
I read reviews before trying this device and it seems that many have had decent luck with it. Not me. It "sort of" worked but was unreliable. Configuration was trial and error including multiple factory resets on the device and multiple uninstall-reinstall of the app (under iOS 9.x.x). Communication from the app to the device over cellular worked but was not reliable enough for me. I don't know where the weakness was, be it the app, cellular path, WiFi in my house, or the device itself. I doubt it was the WiFi as my testing had the device within 10 feet of the router though through a single drywall wall.
Instructions and documentation were meh. But Belkin had a lot of Web support available though you had to scrounge around and look for it. Guess it was just me but my sense was that you could find most answers if your were persistent and had the patience to scour their Web support.
The device quality seemed good but I felt it was a little pricey especially since it didn't work for me. I'm OK with pricey to be an early adopter though. I really wanted this thing to work.
I don't think this device is for those who want things to "just work". Your mileage may vary.

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobA Product works.
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.

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.

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!

I needed a way to control some lights at our vacation home. Th is plug works great. I can turn the lights on using the app and I can set rules so that they come on and go off at specific times and days when I'm not there.

Before choosing between the simple switch or the insight switch, you must know the insight switch have a great feature : you can easily setup a rule to turn off the switch after n minutes.
Useful for an iron... you'll never forget it plugged... no risk for your home !
