I would give Wemo’s smartplug a zero if that option existed. The idiotic design puts the code symbol on the back of the plug so it can’t be scanned while it is plugged in. The option to manually enter the code is completely random. No surprise their support phone lines constantly experience heavy volume. Don’t waste your time!!!

Manually entering the Apple HomeKit Code should appear on the options once we setup the Wemo device in the network. Our Product Experts would like to check on your case by sharing it through email at BelkinCares@belkin with your case number or phone number and the link of this review, for our reference.
I now have an automated light theme in my living room AND entryway!
My neighbors always think I am home and it keeps me feeling so safe!
If I arrive home late I can even turn on all my lights from the car since this works through the wifi!
That means everything is lit up the moment I walk in!
I don't have to fumble with light switches or anything!
I recently set up a BUNCH of Christmas fairy lights and they are set to go on and off everyday! I would never have such a beautiful ambiance without WEMO to schedule everything for me!
If you have KIDS it get even better! Connect it to some christmas lights or a favorite musical light or diffuser and have it go off automatically!
Very clear instructions on how to activate on your phone. Instead of trying to find a device or type in an arcane string of digits, you point to a QR-code type image in the box (which is also on the back of the plug in case that's gone) and then the WeMo app takes care of the rest.
I use Alexa integration, along with three other WeMo devices. Super easy!
this plug worked great when i first purchased it. however it kept recommending to update firmware which i did. one day the app was stuck in the firmware update for days and the plug light was left there blinking. now the only way the plug works is if i manually click the button on and off. i have tried deleting the app and redownloading, factory resetting the plug manually. Now when I try to connect to wifi the plug will not stay connected. very dissapointed.
I have two of these plugs on lamps in my home that I work with Google Assistant, and the two Wemo plugs are CONTINUALLY going out on me. One hour I'll ask Googe to "turn on off hall lamp" and it does, but then when I tell it "turn ON hall lamp" it says "Wemo is not available" But Wemo IS available. It's solid white light is on, my Wifi and Router are working fine. This is so frustrating to me. I would not recommend this plug!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is such a great product, I had to go buy another. This works so well using the app. Now, Belkin has made it possible for the WEMO app to work with the Apple Home app, and that enables use of Siri.
The Mini is very conveniently shaped so that the unit does not cover the 2nd plug in an outlet.
I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone!!!!
