4 out of 5 eggsUpdate upgrading to 4 Stars

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: Same as above

Cons: Same as before

Other Thoughts: Belkin thanks for the fast response. Seems to work best with a manual switch. Our fan with a digital interface can only be turned off with the WEMO where as our old fan with the mechanical switch can be toggled ON/OFF. Liking it the more I use it. The IFTT will take some more time though, but it makes the switch more flexible than others on the market.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Idea still needs to mature

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: Nice way to track energy usage.Can turn stuff ON/OFF when away from home. If appears that Belkin is updating the APP on a regular basis.

Cons: Setup more difficult than you would be lead to believe from their quick start Guide. Firmware/APP could use some more work.

Other Thoughts: I chatted with Tech Support, very nice but not much help. It appeared the WEMO was connected to my wireless router but after 30 seconds It would turn off an try to discover other wireless networks. I discovered on my own that the Acceskey/password was required. Just seems unstable. Now I cannot find the WEMO WI-FI but it still seems to work O.K.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi SHIFTER,

Thank you for sharing us your experience with the Belkin WeMo Insight Switch and with the Support team. The default SSID of the WeMo device will no longer be visible once it is already connected to the router's network. To have a stable performance on the WeMo switch, make sure to update the firmware. Here's how: http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?articleNum=27353

4 out of 5 eggsvery good devices but still buggy

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: You can have the wemo email you usage and track you power usages
I don't have any range problem if Wifi is setup right
There is Third party API so you can built custom program

Cons: there is small bugs even after many major updates.
It's much less buggy then before.
They need to improve bugs and release API

Other Thoughts: I really love wemo but they need to fix the bugs.
open up the API

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great! Android app could be better

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: Excellent device. Monitors power consumption and allows you to remotely turn it on or off. I use it for a miner and if hangs or stops working, I get a notification and I can power cycle it.

Cons: The only con is that the android app is poor. It takes a few refreshes or app restarts to see the device sometimes. while this only adds and extra 30 seconds of needed time, it becomes annoying. Additionally, the app UI is dated.

5 out of 5 eggsWork perfectly - Used on Mining Rigs!

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: I use 2 of these along with 4 light switches with 0 issues. I use these with my mining rigs along with a wifi camera's to monitor my mining rigs remotely and in the case of any issues I can turn the power off remotely. They are pretty much spot on regarding wattage usage which is pretty important for mining. I highly recommend these for any miners out there!

Cons: None, they work perfectly fine

1 out of 5 eggsI wish it wotked for me.

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: looks like there would be a loy of "pros" but if you cant get it installed, how can anything be a "pro"?

Cons: Tech support stunningly bad.
When I asked the support person for the name of the Ipad app so I could search fo, find and install it, i was told "wemo"
I should have been told THERE IS NO IPAD APP.
I would have to search for an iphone app as there is no ipad app.
After 20 minuites that i will never get back, i logged into the wemo/belkin forum where the answer was searched for and found in less than 1 minute,
SKIP ALL FORMS OF BELKIN DIRECT tech SUPPORT, YOU HAVE BEEN WAENED.
So now it should have been a snap to get the install done.
Naaaaa.
One of the first things you must do is attach to your "home" network.
Because they expect that it's a "home newwork" it must have the lowest level of encryptiion. Mine does not have a small WEP key. it has a (too long for belkin) pre shared key. hardly something that belkin should not expect to finf in a home network.
I'll be darned if i an going to reconfigure my entire wifi network to a lowend WEP key to get this belkin dedice working.
back this old tech leftover goes.
belkin, no thanks for waisting my time - but thank you newegg (in advance) for taking back this low end garbage with no hassle (as i know you will.)
At least i can count on newegg.

Other Thoughts: If belkin comes out with a real piece of tek that does what this promises, i will buy dozens of individual units (after i buy 1 to see if it works.)

1 out of 5 eggsDoes somethings OK.

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: You can turn a device on and off from your phone when everything works.

Cons: It doesn't seem to work most of the time.
The connection is bad at best.
The android app is terrible and crashes frequently and just doesn't work most of the time.
My device did not report power consumption at all.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Roman,

Thank you for sharing us your feedback on the Belkin WeMo Insight. We suggest that you adjust the router's wireless settings to improve the WeMo's connection to the network. Change the router's wireless channel for the WeMo to have a stronger and more stable connection. Try Channels 6, 9, 11, and 1. You can actually experiment with the Channels and choose the one with the best result. We also recommend that you reset the WeMo and reconfigure it using a newly-downloaded App. Upgrade the firmware if the WeMo detects a new firmware version.

Let us know should you need further assistance. Email us at BelkinCares@belkin.com with your contact details and location.


Regards,

Belkin Support

3 out of 5 eggsLimits your Light

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: Very straight foward to use after its setup. You can toggle the light switch off and on from either Android or iOS app. I use both droid phone and ipad. The App is available in either google play store or apple app store. The app also tells you a guesstimation of how much energy whatever device is plugged in the outlet.
You may want to read the reviews of the app itself in the app store. I saw mixed reviews but it seems like it works fine after a little bit of a setup issue. The setup requires the device to create its own wifi network seperate from your home network. After it creates its own network you use your phone to connect to its wifi network then tell it what your home network router/passcode is so that it then is available on your home network. After its initially setup it connects via home network wifi or 3G/4G on my phone to be able to toggle it off or on.

Cons: In my situation I wanted to use this on my living room end table lamp. I thought it would be nice to have as a feature to turn the lamp on at dusk and off at midnight regardless if I am home or not. There is a bit of a crux...Once you plug this outlet into your existing outlet and then the lamp into the insight wemo outlet, the lamp is then ONLY controlled by the app on your phone or ipad. You cannot turn the lamp off or on using the lamp switch because the lamp is controlled through the insight wemo outlet now. They need to have it available to override the switch but I guess its just not much different then an old school light timer, the only fancy thing about it is you can operate it with your phone but really I don't know why you'd end up operating it ONLY with your phone. My wife isn't as "techie" as I am and it makes her mad that she can't just go over and turn on the light switch. When its overcast outside or you need a little extra light for reading it doesn't work very well to have to wait until dusk for it to turn on.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: Works great, easy setup, versatile programming options

Cons: It would be nice if it was a little bit smaller, but I'm sure this (and a lower price) will come with time when the technology allows.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Belkin F7C029fc WeMo Insight Switch, Operates over Wi-Fi/mobile internet, turn electronics on or off

Pros: Absolutely None

Cons: Not only is the non-existant documentation wrong, but tech support had no idea what to do. They wanted to pass the problem on to a higher level which would be calling me at 2:30 AM.
The app is terrible! The FAQs take you no where (at least on an iPhone they do not work)
Because of the different models out the documentation is incorrect and sometimes refers to the other model.
Only a quick install guide is offered which is worse than a set of Ikea instructions.

Other Thoughts: Through out the entire process, the little bit of documention that is offered only refers to using a Belkin router. It makes one think if it is at all compatible with any other router.
And my success in getting it to work tells me NO!
