Never Worry You Left Something On Again
Switch can turn anything plugged in on and off automatically like lamps, fans, space heaters, and other electronic devices. Set worry-free schedules to match the rhythms of your home.
Have Your Lamp Come On At Sunset
Have your lights turn on at sunset and off at sunrise with the free WeMo App. Or combine sun and time rules to have a light to turn on at sunset and off at a predetermined time. It's quick, easy and can be adjusted right from your phone.
Put A Light To Work While You're Away
Away mode makes it look like you're home even when you're not with preset lighting schedules. Lights go on and off automatically or can be controlled remotely from your phone.
Turn Off The Kids' Room From Your Room
Never risk waking up the little ones again by sneaking in to turn off that humidifier or white noise machine. With Switch, you can take care of everything without even getting out of bed.
WeMo Is Completely Modular
WeMo products are designed to work together via the WeMo App, allowing you to light and control as much or as little of your home as you like. Pair any products from the WeMo family to program and monitor multiple electronic devices or appliances throughout your home.
For example, you can add WeMo Light Switch to activate porch lights or ceiling fans when movement is detected. Or extend control to other parts of your home with a WeMo LED Lighting Starter Set. An Insight Switch will even let you know how much energy your appliances are using. The combinations are endless.
Multiple electronic devices can be controlled from the WeMo App, giving you instant visibility to every connected device. The WeMo App also works on multiple smartphones and tablets simultaneously.
Never Lift a Finger With Echo Voice Control
Amazon Echo (sold separately), lets you control devices plugged into Switch using just your voice. Turn off the living room lamp from the kitchen, or brew your morning coffee without even getting out of bed. Voice command also lets family or guests control connected devices without having to access the WeMo App.
Get Creative With IFTTT Automated Recipes
Turn lamps, coffee makers, fans, and other electronics on when you get near home or off when you leave by using IFTTT (If This, Then That). Switch can even flash the lights when your favorite team scores a touchdown. With IFTTT, you can create conditional relationships between your products and connect them to a wide array of online apps. Visit the IFTTT website to learn more.

The downside to this is the wifi network password cannot contain spaces or other characters, only alpha numeric characters. I feel this is a big flaw and poses a security problem. Being a network security oriented person, I was able to get it locked down a bit. The fact the password has to be one string means some users will have to change their home's wifi password in order to add this to their network. I bought 2 additional ones as Christmas gifts but had to return them after I realized the person I'd be giving it to would have to change their wifi password and then do so on all their devices. Quite a task that shouldn't be necessary.
Additionally, when I installed this, it didn't come with the latest firmware and went through 2 (or 3) updates prior to me actually using it. You could opt out of updating the firmware but I typically like to adopt any update that I feel provides an advantage over the previous.
Once you've got the switch set up, commands are virtually immediate - about a 1s delay. I was able to control the unit remotely also.
In all, a great addition to the home automation environment but needs to have the wifi concerns addressed.
This product is not backed by competent support. If you run into any problems their answers are the same regardless of the situation. You are given 3 tips. Factory reset the switch, re-install the software and be sure to update software to the latest version (ironic, since it was the latest version that caused the problem in the first place). You only hope in resolving any problems is getting assistance from other wemo users. Knowledge lies with them NOT the people paid to support it.
I own 13 of these devices and was being optimistic that as with any new HW problems will eventually be resolved and all will work as was intended. One and a half year and I have seen no progress. In fact, in several cases, progress has taking a tep backwards. If I had to start over I would look for other alternatives and run far away from this and any other wemo devices.
In the meantime I can operate the WeMo Insight Switch via my iPod but a lot of good that does! On the other hand, I know a person who experienced no issues setting up the Amazon Echo with the WeMo Insight Switch. However, it was an expensive "experiment" for me.
