1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: Great promise

Cons: In an effort to improve our security, our home wifi LAN uses symbols in the password. No where in the Belkin literature did they indicated that their device will not accept symbols. After installing the device and downloading the app, I tried to set it up by connecting according to their instructions. I tried to enter our password and got a message saying that the Belkin WeMo device would not accept it because the password had symbols. Now I've got to reverse the entire process and try to get a refund from Newegg for the two switches I purchased. :(

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Robert,

We value the time you’ve invested in sharing with us your experience. WeMo is not currently compatible with networks that use symbols or special characters in the SSID or password. Rest assured that we’ll relay your feedback to the Team for future product developments.

Should you change your mind about using the WeMo Light Switch again, we are here to help you set it up. Just send us an email at BelkinCares@belkin.com with your contact details, location, and the link to this review.

3 out of 5 eggsGot it working

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: Turns on and off as expected
Stays Connected to wireless network well even 2 storys down. And connected to DD-WRT router which I see some have had problems with not me luckily.

Cons: Acted like it was a refurb?
Turned it on did not broacast SSID to connect to.
Tried resetting many times. What finally worked to reset was hit the restart and then immediate after press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds.

Also noticed it had someone else in the Remote Access and devices like it was setup with someone else.

Other Thoughts: After getting it to work. Also seems if you manually turn it on or off on a day you have scheduled it seems to null and void any scheduled off or on times you have set.

I am using this to control and blower fan to bring cool basement air from behind 2 heatpump water heaters into the rest of the house.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: Owned for a few months now and have been through a few firmware and app updates. I have 3 installed now and loving the recent Smartthings integration. Setup could use a little help on android. I've had to clear data/cache on occasion to get it to work. Once set up these work great and have instant status reporting unlike most z-wave switches.

Cons: Could be cheaper by a couple bucks, I buy when they are on sale. Doesn't work in 3-way.

Other Thoughts: I'd gladly pay the regular price if they worked in 3-way configuration

1 out of 5 eggsterrible support when you have issues

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: The switch works as a expensive switch

Cons: 0 egg if I can give it. I buy the switch to work with my android and it did for two months until they nag you to update their poorly tested firmware. that broke the app connection. ( ie your switch can break from their remote firmware updates and have no support once warranty is over)

This is the worse tech support I have ever encounter. The guy literally just ask you to reboot / reset your switch. Empty promise about call backs. and worse yet. The constant firmware updates broke the app since Feb 2014 and now its turned into an expensive switch that does nothing. Good luck in getting their support. you get first level support, no way to get their advance support. Waits 48 hours for them to not call you back. then when you followup, promised for another 48 hours for them not to call you back.......... now 2 more months still waiting for call back.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy another belkin product again.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsNice Idea

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: Wireless, programmable, great if you travel a lot.

Cons: If it loses power you have to reset it. Also I don't think it likes Daylight savings.

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these and they work well. My home is older construction and the switches need a hole in the wall thats very deep. Overall I likes these. I just wish they were a little easier to set-up.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsProduct fails to deliver

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: Looks sleek
Installation instructions are straight forward
Really wanted this to work

Cons: Doesn't work
App keeps quitting
Doesn't recognize my home wifi

Let me just preface this by saying i own 2 Belkin WeMo switchs and they both work flawlessly with my wifi network - so I know that's not the issue.

Installing this was fairly painless. It's important to note you have to have a neutral wire in order for this to work.

this light switch was going to replace my porch light switch - making it easy to control what time i wanted my lights to come on and off.

After I installed, the app kept crashing and it could not locate my wifi network. The lights were flickering on and off. Very frustrating since I had success with other Belkin WeMo products.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't recommend this product until they fix issues involved with the app. also wish you didn't have to connect a neutral wire to make it work.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

Thank you for sharing us your Belkin WeMo experience. Maybe there's an interfering signal in the area that affects the WeMo's connection to the network. Do not place the Light Switch near metallic objects. Allow us to assist you further, email us at BelkinCares@belkin.com with your contact details, location, and the link to this post.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome! Works great

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: ******************************************** Warning! The neutral wire (WHITE) is required as well as the two black wires plus the ground. 4 wires total. I don't know how you would hook this up without a neutral wire, may want to check the Belkin website to see if it is possible. ************************

1. Hookup was easy, Turn off breaker, pull out the old switch (unhook the 2 black wires and 1 ground) and then install the new switch with the addition of the neutral WHITE wire.

2. Have your phone scan for the switch through Wi-Fi. Once it finds the switch then launch the WEMO app.

3. The WEMO app will link your WEMO switch to your network. Once it is linked up, it releases the WEMO WiFI and voila your switch is live on your WIFI network.

4. Tried using the lights through the 3G or 4G connection depends on your cell phone coverage. Parts of town I live in have poor connection so I have to wait until i can see 3G or 4G on my phone to be successful.

5. You can tell the status of your switch from your phone.

6. I would buy more if they drop the price again!

Cons: Timer app on the android could be a bit more intelligent. They need to upgrade the software, otherwise it is functional.

1 out of 5 eggsTake out of box place directly in toilet

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: Easy installation

Cons: For one the app is complete garbage, literally works 5% of the time. Other times it won't recognize the device or won't work at all. This is the main point of the device, is to be able to turn on/off your lights remotely. It seems as though this device is still in an alpha stage at best and needs to be removed from shelves until it actually works or the app developers get half a brain

5 out of 5 eggsNice Switch

This review is from: Belkin F7C030fc WeMo Light Switch

Pros: Easy to install IF your switch outlet box has neutral and hot power leads. Easy to configure the wi-fi and switch settings.

Cons: your switch outlet box must have neutral and hot power leads otherwise your pulling wires to get it to work.
Really expensive.
