Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been spoiled.
I’m not a loyal customer. As soon as I find something I don’t like about a product, I’m on to the next brand. Customer service and a brand that actively listens to customers are the only 2 things which will have me reconsider.
That being said, I got my first WeMo, a dimmer light switch about a year ago, maybe a little more than a year, I forget, but it has spoiled me so badly for other light switches due to one little option. The ability to set rules. In my case I have a rule set up to turn the light off 30m after it’s been turned on. This allows me to essentially walk out of my bedroom and not have to ponder whether I’ve turned the light off or not. It’s enough time to walk in and out of the room to do things too. There’s been a boom of WiFi light switches and dimmers but believe it or not, WeMo software remains the only one capable of this.
My only issue is that things have been flawless up until 1.22.x. Now the switch ever so often becomes “not detected” and oddly, while I can turn it on or off with Alexa, it loses all other functions like dimming and rules/timers etc. The only fix I’ve found is rebooting my phone. Hopefully this gets fixed soon, I’m ready to buy more switches.
Remote Access Does Not Work
I have been a Wemo customer for several years. Began with one light switch and, although getting the switch detected and connected was wonky, the light worked great with rules. Over time I added more switches and currently there are 6 Wemo devices at my residence. The advertised benefit of Wemo items is to (1) set up rules for devices to turn on/off automatically and (2) for remote access.
(1) For the last year+ the “rules” do not work if I am not home. Forget having your home appear like someone is home when you are not. (2) Remote access also does not work if I am not home. What good is having a remote access function if it does not allow you to access your devices remotely? I have started from scratch and followed every trouble shooting method Belkin suggests any I have to now advise that Wemo is a failure. This was not always the case. Historically remote access worked flawlessly. No more. If I’m at the corner or on the Indian continent Wemo doesn’t work.
I have earnestly tried to be a devoted, long term customer, but that has changed. Last night I tried to turn on the front door light from a nearby restaurant and the app updated to show each 6 Wemo devices “not detected.” Simply said, the Wemo app does not work remotely, which means these expensive Wemo light switches and plugs are worthless. Thankfully I have still have old fashioned timers to plug lights in to because these expensive Wemo gadgets don’t work.
Can you increase the maximum power on threshold? Right now the max is 99 watts. I want my air conditioner to be considered “on” if it’s drawing more than 150 watts. The fan uses 130 watts. When the compressor kicks in the wattage goes up to 340 watts. I’d like to set the threshold to 150. What’s the reason behind limiting it to 99 watts? If it’s not a technical limitation it would be great to give us that additional control/flexibility.
Can you add a rule, perhaps in the automation category in the wemo app, that allows a Wemo insight switch to turn on another wemo insight switch when the “master” insight switch detects a load greater than the power on threshold? And then the opposite (turn off the other wemo insight switch when the load drops below the threshold)? Use case: Air conditioner is plugged into the master insight switch. A circulator fan is plugged into the slave insight switch. When the master insight switch detects that the air conditioner compressor has turned on (via on/standby threshold setting) the slave insight switch is turned on via the new rule. When the A/C turns off the fan is commanded to turn off.
Can you make use of the HomeKit protocol specification “outlet in use”? Right now in the Apple home app all of my insight switches always say “no” when reading the “outlet in use” property found by force pressing/long pressing on the insight switch and then tapping on “settings”. There is a read only field “Outlet In Use”, and it always says “no”.
