Everything was fine until firmware updates! May 2015 So its been a few months now. Over that period of time I suspect Belkin has finally invested in some decent software developers, perhaps adopted Agile or Kanban :) The app is MUCH better, so much in fact I am going to go from 1 star to 3! Maybe 4 of you keep behaving :)
Works Great! I tried an "Arlec" version of the Wemo Switch with an app called "Arlink" - awful. As soon as I purchased and began using Wemo life was easy ☺. Plug n Play. Intuitive, so user friendly and just does what you want it to. As per some other comments don't understand why it's only rated with a score of around 3. I can only assume it's many users who need Iphone "pre school" user friendliness (no offence to them) and/or their Android devices are not maintained properly?? Good job Belkin/Wemo 👍 ☺
So confused by all the negative reviews We have been using WeMo devices for almost a year now and have not had any issues. We are using two WeMo wall switches and a WeMo smart plug. They work great. They come on and go off based on the rules that have been created and I never have a problem overriding them remotely. All in all, we are very happy with WeMo and looking forward to more devices we can convert over.
Switch won't update and stopped working Bought this as a way to turn on/off a laser for my cats while away on vacation. Worked when I set it up the night before but when we left the next day it stopped working. Firmware update also does not work and crashes app. Going to settings also crashes app. WeMo is definitely the worst of the connected home devices, both in terms of hardware and software.
Always shuts down I can never use the app for more than 30 seconds before it shuts down or stops. And when I can get it to work it won't let me select or change anything. Luckily my wife has an iPhone and it works a million times better on that
1.15.2 Is not working for me. I have reinstalled several times. Rebooted the phone. Restored the wemo back to original settings. Cleared the cache. I'm now giving up and waiting for the next update. It shows the splash screen, then the white screen with wemo on the top green band, then says looking for devices and the word wemo moves to the top of the green band, then it just sits there.
This update brings you Android N compatibility, a new coat of paint for the app, and a feature we know you’ve been waiting for: custom icon editing!
We also introduced accessibility for vision-impaired users in the device list.
Finally, Mr. Scott Tenaglia drew our attention to a security vulnerability, which has now been corrected, so even if Scott turns evil we’re in good shape. (We’re sure he won’t turn evil.) Thanks, Scott!
