    Beware of security flaw

    Posted
    Chuck58

    Once you llnk this to your home network it is NEVER erased. I had one of these and then gave it to my friend who lives 5 miles away. Even though he linked it to his network, once he got outside and the phone app launched it communicated with the Belkin Cloud server. Guess what ? He could see all my other Wemo devices I had in my home and control them. The light switch retains the old network and password. Belkin knows all about the flaw but have not corrected it. You can NEVER sell or give the switch to someone else once you link it to your network. The next person will have access to any other Wemo devices you own. it took Belkin 3 weeks to fix this.. You would never know this is going on. The only reson i stumbled onto it was i hlepd hookit up in my friend's house. Then we went out to dinner and we launched the Wemo app on our phones. i was shocked to see all of my devices on his phone and I could still see the switch on my phoneplus all of my own devices. The 2 networks were linked and crossed. Never buy a used on off of Ebay. The switch memory is never erased. You really cannot sell it to someone else either unless you have no other Wemo devices. it was by accident that I discovered the issue.

    Installation for the Wemo Light Switch was fairly easy. After turning off my switch at the breaker, examining my current wiring, I determined that my setup met the needs for the Light Switch. You must have a ground wire AND neutral wire for installation. This is outlined in the instructions that came with the Light Switch. Also, the switch that you install this on must be a stand alone. You can not have two separate switches that work on the same light. Our living room switch was perfect for this and I now have the ability to turn on/off all four ceiling lights via the switch itself or thru my phone. Wemo has the ability to turn on/off the lights at certain time frames, or you can integrate with other Wemo components (Sensor) to have this switch on/off. My favorite is the integration with IFTTT. I have a Withings WiFi scale, so when I go to take a measurement in the morning (upstairs), my living room lights will automatically turn on, ready for when I head downstairs. This kind of automation is exactly what I needed. Anyone looking to add some automation to your house, I would recommend this product.

    These switches work better than some of the competition like smartthings. Unlike most other HA systems WEMO works when your internet is down from home. As far as price very competitive and I think less expensive since there is no hub to buy also. And easy to setup and make conditional rules. Some wannabe programmers poopoo them due to the lack of an api, but these guys want a gadget not a reliable tool. It dies integrate with IFTTT so you can do quite a bit more than what the app includes, making it play well with other devices from other makers. With IFTTT the light switch becomes 2 switches with a long press you can have IFTTT do thing like send a text or make a phone call. I have the bedroom switches programmed with a long switch to call family for help in an emergency, and the back porch and front porch light switches programmed to call my phone so I can find it when I misplaced it, there are dozens of things the long press can do. The Amazon ECHO can control WEMO with natural voice commands and fairly fluid commands. My entire house uses WEMO, I removed Smartthings due to continual server issues on their end making it impossible to use often times. So WEMO is a great solution 4 WEMO Switch - 4 Insight - 16 WEMO Light Switches - 1 WEMO Link with 2 bulbs - 4 WEMO HD cameras - 1 WEMO Motion - and lastly 2 WEMO Makers. And I love them all

    Easy install and works great

    I don't know much about electrical wiring, but the instructions given were concise and accurate. I was able to get 3 of these units installed in less than 5-8 minutes apiece. Just make sure that you have a neutral wire available. The software setup took another couple of minutes and everything was good to go. Ninety percent of my home lighting is controlled via Control4 Home Automation but I wanted to try these on a couple of circuits that did not have Control4 applied to them. These switches are $50 a piece vs. $200 for installation of a single Control4 switch. While they cannot be accessed and automated via the Control4 system, they provide a nice and inexpensive way to gain a semblance of automation. The circuits I applied these to are infrequently used circuits like the roof plugs for Christmas lighting, secondary garage bay lights and garage door soffit lights. I was able to set schedules for each switch easily. They work!

    What You'd Want in a Smart Switch

    I now have four of these installed in my house. Great options of timers, I have our outdoor lights set to go on 15 minutes before sundown and 15 minutes after sunrise. You can connect it to IFTT and I have one connected to a ceiling fan that turns itself on if the outside temperature goes above 70 and turns itself off if the temp drops below 65. The app works well and the firmware is easy to upgrade. I am not very handy, but I was able to easily install the switches, it is the same as switching out a normal light switch, which I discovered is really actually easy. Connecting it to your wifi is also very easy and directions are clear. You can only install this where there is only one lightswitch connected to whatever you are turning on, so make sure that is the case in any room you want to install it in.

    Great idea, terrible implementation

    From all the research I have done it appears that almost 50% of buyers (reviews on amazon, engadget and wemo's own community...) have very significant issues. I have three Wemo outlets which all failed after about 6 months, won't connect to wifi even though my Nests, Dropcam, and other devices have no wifi issues on the same network/SSID. The devices either have signifcant engineering defects or manufacturing defects

    It has been a few months now that I have installed the switch. It was easy to wire, and then set up. I was so happy with it's performance that I purchased 2 additional switched. One is set for the front outside light, one for the garage entrance, and the third for the hallway when I enter the house through the garage. The WeMo app is easy to navigate. I set the switches running the outside lights to turn on the lights 30 minutes after sunset and turn them off 30 minutes after sunrise. It's been working without without a glitch. I love it! I also set up an IFTTT recipe for days I work late to turn on my hallway light when I enter the geofence perimeter I set. I always smile when I open the door to a lit hallway. I am thinking about expanding to other WeMo products. I wish they would come down on price a little.
