      I am an early adopter & have used various home automation devices over decades. I ditched X10, X10 Pro & Z-Wave, searching for reliable equipment that could offer easy control from a smart-phone with Amazon Echo & Google Home Control. Apple Siri Control would be a bonus. The first Homekit approved devices were extremely disappointing & were unreliable. They had to be unplugged & rebooted about 1ce / week. Meanwhile, WEMO has become a strong supplier of Home Automation gear. WEMO has built a reputation for dependability, so I tried 1 WEMO Mini WiFi Smart Plug. It was very easy to set-up & 3 months later, I added 15 more. WEMO wireless switches work 100% of the time. They respond to Amazon Echo & to Google Home. With the upcoming Apple (Siri) adaptor that WEMO is releasing, WEMO will respond to Siri, as well. When you command On or Off state, you get instant notification on your phone App. The timers in the WEMO App work just as consistently as the switch. Next, I need 4) weather resistant switches for landscape lighting, subject to rain / snow / freezing / 110 degree weather. And Wi-Fi is naturally weaker through the concrete / brick house exterior, where they will be located. At this time, WEMO does not offer such a switch. I wish they did! So I have 2) choices: 1- Buy a plastic enclosure, insert a WEMO switch, and pull inlet and exit wiring through weatherproof connectors. Basically, make it weather resistant. Or: 2- Buy an unproven brand that offers a weather resistant product. I am still weighing options for a weather resistant smart switch with WEMO reliability. Conclusion: WEMO Mini WiFi Smart Plug is a 100% reliable product & has earned my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! I hope they add an outdoor version, but for now, WEMO is the BEST of the BEST indoor smart switch!

      Struggled with for Over 2 hours

      Posted
      Catbeasta

      My router is dual band, meaning, it does 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz. Wemo appears to like just the 2.4 ghz. After struggling an hour with it yesterday and not getting it to connect, I went into my office today (where the router is) to have it as close as possible. Then, I changed the settings (via computer) to rename the 5ghz network name -just- to make sure I didn't pick the wrong one. I don't think that honestly mattered, as the new name didn't show on the device anyway. Still, struggled for another hour between resetting and unplugging and what have you. Finally, turned off my password settings to the 2.4 network to make it open. Wemo connects. (By this point, at least I know it can.) It doesn't seem to have an update for firmware, which I thought it might and putting it on the open network might get it to update to resolve it. Noooope. Anyway, finally gave up and went into the router settings. Made a guest network of a totally different name on a 2.4ghz setting JUST for the wemo products and, lo and behold, it sees it and connects to it. So, just for the sheer struggle of setup with this product, 3 stars. I haven't even gotten to play with it at this point, mind you. Additionally, after connecting it to the fabricated guest network I made up, it now, all of a sudden, has a firmware update that it didn't offer before. @.@ I'm half tempted to try and take it off the guest network and put it back on the main one to see if it works now but, to be honest, I still have another one to set up and I'm not really interested in doing so at this time. I'm leaning with "yes, I'd recommend it" but only after either helping them set it up or warning them of the setup issues. I would definitely NOT recommend for a person who's not tech savy, such as my mom, because she'd have thrown it out the window by now. Granted, I will say I think this is mostly given my router is so new or advanced or what have you but you'd think they'd have an easier setup by now.

        Hi, Catbeasta,

        We appreciate your detailed feedback. The Wemo Mini Switch should have no problem connecting to your main network the same way it is connecting to the "fabricated guest network". The firmware update will definitely help the overall performance of the device.

        We suggest that you try to connect the Wemo device to your main network. If you are experiencing challenges, we'll have our Second Level Technicians assist you.

        Just send us your contact details at WemoCares@belkin.com along with the link to this post.

        We hope to hear from you soon.

      Connectivity problems

      I bought 2 of these plugs and both were not working as expected. I'd like to say that I am very tech savvy and use other smart home devices as well, so, this issue I am explaining in the following is not due to an end user error. Setup was straight forward, however, the app seems to have an issue as well. It reported correctly a firmware update and I started the process, however, it did never finish. After 1 hour I reset the plug and started all over. Eventually the app reported then that my firmware was up-to-date. So, the plug reset did not go back to factory status? I don't know. The plug showed up in the app and I could schedule it, all ok so far. But once I removed it from the wall outlet to plug it into its intended wall outlet, it had lost its router / internet connection. It required me to go thru the router set-up again. That feature could be reproduced any time. Apparently it doesn't store the connection after removing it from external power?I installed the second plug and with that one the app was not able to initiate the firmware update. It reported the update but it did nothing when I tried to start the upgrade. De-installing the app and re-installing did not help. Reset of the plug didn't do a thing. To me it seems that WEMO smart plugs / app are just not ready and there are bugs to be ironed out. The second smart plug never got the firmware update but I could setup the device. However, after 5 minutes it would get disconnected from my router and was blinking orange, meaning it required a new setup. Conclusion: plug #1 (with the firware upgrade) worked fine as long as I did not remove it from the wall outlet. Plug#2 had issues getting the firmware update and without it it apprently never worked at all. I have a fully updated Netgear router that never has any problems with lots of other smart home devices from other brands. I would say that WEMO needs some more time to get its stuff ready.

      Infuriating, Selective Router Compatibility

      Posted
      JimGJ81501

      I've been trying to setup this device for three hours, with the Netgear router it needs to connect to sitting less than three meters from the device. Half the time it won't see the Netgear wireless SSIDs at all, then on occasion when it does see them, it refuses to connect as if the password were bad. What's so intensely infuriating is that I have a Linksys router on the other side of the house nearly 20 meters away, and that's the router it sees and wants to connect to. Even after completely shutting down the wireless on that Linksys router, it still refuses to connect to the Netgear router. You cannot reset the wifi network the device connects to without a tedious and arduous reset procedure, which apparently demands you also reset the app, forcing you to put in all your information again and again. Absolutely infuriating and unacceptable. There's nothing wrong with this router and there's no reason it should work with one and not the other.

        Hello JimGJ81501,

        We hear you and we'll help you sort this out. For the Wemo Mini to connect to your network, make sure that your 2.4GHz frequency network is set to broadcast and not hidden.

      Possibly the best smart outlet I've tried.

      A little background: My smart system is starting to get complex with Hue Lights, Google Home, Samsung Smart Things, an Iris Garage Door Controller, and a Nest Thermostat. When I started with Smart Things, I ended up with a couple of Samsung's Smart Things Outlets, these work great, however they block access to one of the other outlets if you try to put two on one standard outlet, they just don't fit. I wanted smart outlets that would allow me to plug in 2 on 1 standard 2 receptacle outlet, so it came down to either the Wemo Mini or TP-Link's. They are both compatible with Google Home, but I wanted to make sure that I could control them with Smart Things (an earlier model didn't natively work, so someone made a guide to get around it using an IFTTT virtual switch to act as a go between for the two). When I arrived at the store, there were none of the TP-link or insigna models for that matter and a couple of the Wemo Mini's. I purchased two Wemo Mini's, and true enough to what I needed them for they both fit stacked on 1 standard outlet, and I found they are natively picked up by Smart Things as well. I've had them for about 2 weeks and they have been working well with no issues. I plan to buy more, to make another tower fan and a humidifier smart, so I'd recommend the product, so long as you're not trying to buy them when I am, otherwise cheers.

      HOT GARBAGE....DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

      Posted
      Chad

      Have had two of these things for less than a week. Worked great for 4 days, then two days in a row I received the dreaded "Not Detected" message on the Wemo app device manager. The only fix action for this is to do a factory reset on the plug itself. This is a LONG and time consuming process. The first time it worked, today it doesn't. I've completed a factory reset several times over, uninstalled and reinstalled the Wemo app and it STILL DOES NOT WORK. I don't know if it the plug itself is the issue or if it is the Wemo app or a combination of both. I know for a fact that it isn't my network because everything else that I have that has WiFi works. I hardly never write reviews, but I felt compelled to after this HORRIBLE experience. I wasted my time so you don't have to waste your time with buying and setting these things up. For something that costs $35 a piece, you would think that this thing would work. This product should have NEVER made it in to production. I'm taking my business somewhere else Belkin. Don't bother escalating this issue to another department either. You couldn't give these things to me for FREE. All I want is something that works. I hope this review goes viral because you need to be held accountable for producing this defective product Belkin!!!!

      Not user friendly hard to pair with Alexa

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I am setting up my smart home and I have been looking for a smart plug with dimmer to be able to control my living room lamp light level, after an extense research, I found this, which everywhere is advertised with dimmer, but it isn't. Wemo also has a different device which is a dimmer, but they always talk about both at the same time so you get confused and end up buying the wrong thing. When I got home I installed the wemo app and everything was fine, but when I wanted to pair it with Alexa, it was asking me for a Samsung / smartthings user and password which is not related to what I bought. I didn't want to create more accounts, but finally, I had to download another app (Smartthings) in order to be able to create the account. FInally, after I did all this, the dam smartthings app is asking me for a code, that I have no idea where is. This has been a stressful and frustrating situation. Now I have to go back to Best Buy and get a different one. I would never recommend this device and brand. also, doesn't work with apple home kit.

        It is unusual that the synchronization process with Alexa prompted you to create an account for a third party app. To assist you accordingly, please email us at WemoCares@belkin.com with your phone number and the link to this post so that we can get you over to our Experts for assistance.

      Great device; instant smart coffee maker

      Posted

      I bought this for my girlfriend. Her coffee pot does not have an auto-off and she was always leaving it on all day. The Mini Wi-Fi Smart Plug allows her to: 1) Program when the power comes on and for how long from her phone 2) Remotely turn the power to the outlet off and on (in case she sleeps in and wants the coffee to start later) I have a programmable coffee maker but it is not remote and it can only be set to go off at one specific time each day and shuts off after two hours; if I oversleep on the weekend, I wake up to cold coffee. I know, 1st world problem but every “problem” smart devices solve are 1st world problems so let’s move on. The $35 price seems a bit steep but perhaps not given the flexibility and ease of setup and use. Not to mention the annual energy savings from not leaving appliances on by mistake (can’t tell you how many times I’ve come home to a space heater still running - not good!). The other nice aspect to using a smart plug on “dumb” appliances is it can be retask as needed. Use it on the fan or dumb [read: less expensive] AC unit (you already own) during the summer and a basic space heater in the winter. Oh and yah you can tell Google Home or Alexa to turn something on by voice as well. That’s pretty cool too.
