Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and works great!I received the Wemo insight plug through a drawing by my utility company. I was excited because I had wanted to integrate smart technology with my Google Home. It was easy to set up and worked great so I bought 2 mini plugs. Now this Senior has 3 lights that work via voice control and a timer. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice FeaturesFirst, I had no problem setting up the Wemo Insight.Writing here on some features not mentioned in any comments so far.Reason for using the Insight; I had purchased a Ford Fusion Energi and wanted to know how much it was costing me to recharge it. My router is on one side of the house, the WEMO HUB is about in the middle and the Insight is in the garage on the opposite side of the house. No connection issues.The cool features;Editing the Insight with your app, you can set the cost/Kwh. I get this by taking my electric bill total and divide it by the total Kwh usage on the bill. With that I get an approximate of how much it cost me per Kwh.Additional feature, still in edit mode, I set the Data Export option to email me a CSV file once a week. Your other options are Now, Daily or Monthly. Using MS Excel to read this file, the sheet contains Day's cost, Kwh consumption and several other columns of information for each day of use. It just keeps adding rolls maintaining all previous data. Given, there are other devices that can do the same thing, but I can see the current consumption on the app and when my car texts me it is fully charge, I turn off the Wemo Insight using the same app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely useful. I want more of them.So easy and useful once you get the knack. Right now I am controlling my back deck lights and my Christmas tree with two versions of these. I turn them on and off twice a day, sometimes with sunrise/sunset an d other times with the clock. We live in Ontario, yet I can randomly control the lights from our home in Florida. And, I have two security cameras that can watch or it will save motion incidents I can go back to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS - for all the wrong reasons.My boyfriend never has his phone on him. Last night I was trying to get a hold of him so I used the Wemo App to flicker on and off the living room lights which is connected to the Wemo Smart Plug. Although he though the house was haunted at first he then realized it was me so he found his phone and called me back. How great is that?!?!On a side note, I'm using the smart plug for the Christmas Lights and love that I can turn them on and off from my phone. Thanks Wemo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Confusing SoftwareI have 3 Insight plugs. The software to program the use times is very difficult to figure out. How much more complicated can you make it??? Answer... No much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would like more graphics around energy useI bought this device to monitor energy use at various appliances. it seems to do a good job of that, and it will email me a spreadsheet with 30 minute interval data. I wish that the app would graph hourly/daily/ weekly/ annual consumption.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teach an Old Lamp New TricksWe have a faux Tiffany Lamp we bought when we were first married which has stained glass dragon flies. The switch has become balky so I bought the Wemo Smart Plug to bypass the balky switch which is now in the "on" position and can remain there. "Alexa, turn on the dragon fly lamp." Voila!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Handy!I bought two Insight Smart Plugs a week ago and was so excited when I received them in the mail. They’re bigger than I expected but the fact that they function without a hub is nice. I got two of them and had issues setting one of them up. I was able to reset it and get it working but it really brought to my attention that the reset button is awkwardly positioned. It’s difficult to hold down while plugging in.The app is intuitive and getting my plugs labeled so I know which light I’m turning on/off was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one site allowed.I really like my Wemos. I tried to add a Wemo to a different house and their app does not allow it, says you need a second smart phone for a second location. I want to control any number of Wemo's across multiple locations from the app on my phone, not multiple phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my wemos but the software fails themI absolutely love my wemos and having remote access but the software has still got problems. I have been using wemos for around 5 years and i still have the same issues as when i started, even with all the software and firmware updates/upgrades - wemos drop off, loose connection and cant add multiple sites. I use a simple third party software to control wemos. The combination of the wemos and the third party software for me is brilliant and reliable! Wemos and orginal wemo app software not so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but needs improvementIt was a little finicky getting it programmed I had to uninstall the app a few times before it would recognize the switch. You can't control Wemos from multiple locations with the same device. Each location has to be on a separate app so you would have to have it on two different devices. Once I was able to finally get it programmed and upgrade the firmware it has worked very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to Use, Works GreatIt's simple to set up and use, and works great. Does everything I need it to do, and more, including control of the outlets remotely, displaying power use over time, and also a grouped "away from home" randomization cycle. It's a bit bulkier than it appears in photos, but still a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much improved setup - worked the first attempt.My first 6 Wemos were a struggle to set up - but always worked flawlessly after that.These two Insight switches were a breeze - connecting and working on the first setup. I now know how many watts the halide light in my work shop draw! One switch (and 6 of my Wemos) are activated via IFTTT when I arm or disarm my (Ismartalarm) shop alarm.(With a Google Home command). The other I configured to light my pellet stove in my shop via a Google voice command from home. Warm shop when I arrive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insight into Actual Power CostsI think the unit is a little large and slightly expensive. However, seeing what my fans and other energy devices actually use and having the ability to control them is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No support for multiple locationsThe mobile app does not support multiple location (e.g. switches installed at a Primary home and Vacation home). The purpose of these types of switches is to be able to monitor and control devices when you are not physically there. This is a serious limitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still in the box...reluctant to open...I purchased two of these...again...because I really want them to work. Last summer when I purchased two of them Belkin couldn't get the second one functional. They ended up calling me back weeks later when I placed several service requests...When I have time to start the process all over again and have prepared myself for challenges in setting these up, I will open the box and start again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely UsefulI own 3 Insights and find them extremely useful because they are the only product that lets me know for sure that my powered device is actually on. I use 2 to control roof deicing cables and 1 for a fan heater in my garage. When I am away for 3 months in the winter I can remotely confirm, by seeing the power usage, that these devices are not just power enabled, but actually running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new "remote."With summer on the way, a remote controlled fan was on my wish list to save me a little money on my air-conditioning. Then, the Belkin offer was in my e.mail, so I decided to buy another Insight instead of a new fan. Already have an insight in the bedroom and it's been a great energy savings over the past several years. Now I can cool myself off as needed with the new "remote" without having to cool the rest of the house. I love that the Insights can be programmed to turn on and off. Now that I have an Echo, Alexa can turn them on and off too. They're so easy to use...a couple of little miracles for this old lady. Thanks Belkin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to set upSet this up a week ago to use for our bearded dragon’s tank lights and heater. It was simple and I was able to download the app and set up within minutes. I do however wish that it had outlets for 2 appliances, so I could use the same timer for both the aquarium light and heater. That’s the only reason I took away a star.
