Great idea. Just need the brain to setup the UI to make great. Unable to use 5ghz that is the new norm. Unable to customise well and with ease. Often shows turned on while in the off state. Will get better but so unlike belkin not to have perfected before release. Wired LAN would be great. My whole house in wired in shielded Cat6e as make things work so much faster and reliable.
I love love love how the Belkin Wemo Wi-Fi plugs can create unique home environments. The reason for the 4 rating was because as I moved them from one wireless network to another, it was really difficult to reset and re-pair them. I couldn't get the extension applications to work in the new Wi-Fi environment. I also found that the integration with other smart home apps was really cool.
It is extremely unreliable which is typically not what I want for something that turns on the lights. Often, it will not be able to communicate with the switches - or it will say it is on when it is off and then lose the connection. I had to uninstall and reinstall the app every time I added a new switch. I followed the instructions carefully and my router is close to the switches, so it is not a connectivity problem. I have used other Smart plugs from a different manufacturer and never felt this frustration.
The app freezes when launched too quickly after it was closed. Carefully following the non standard setup instructions requires several tries. The save after edit of previously scheduled task requires "save" after "done". The streamlined setup does not have the granularity for troubleshooting. It can and does in fact work often. But it also does not work part of the time. Because I have security concerns I'm only giving this app access to controllers for non-critical devices, such as a few lights around the house. They may have designed their product line for more casual users where performance, security, and troubleshooting aren't really a factor.
I have one main modem router and four others routers connected with the main with LAN. Wemo is connected wirelessly with one of this routers. Unfortunately it never seems to work. It only works when it's connected to the main modem router. This is absolutely unacceptable. I bought 2 of them and I intend to throw them to the garbage. Ridiculous application. I will try to find something at least with stable performance. Such a waste of money 💵...
Nexus 6p. Generally slow but awesome for home automation. I found the trick to getting set up with a new wemo on newer androids. Turn ON airplane mode, re-enable wifi and only then connect to the new switch's wifi to complete the setup of your new devices. After setup is complete u don't need airplane mode anymore.
