Wemo Light Switch Product Shot


The Wemo Light Switch allows you to control your home lighting using just your phone or tablet. This smart light switch connects to the existing WiFi router of your home network to provide wireless control of your lights – with no subscription or hub required. From porch lights to ceiling fans to recessed lighting, Wemo Light Switch can control nearly anything that a traditional light switch can. Whether you’re unwinding on the couch, working at a coffee shop, or vacationing in the Caribbean, you’ll be able to remotely control your home lighting from anywhere. Home automation at its best.

Wemo Light Switch in Unoccupied House


With the ability to randomize your lights, Wemo Light Switch protects your home better than a mechanical timer. When set to “Away Mode,” the smart light switch will turn plugged-in lights on and off randomly to make it appear like you’re home – even when you’re not. A perfect additon to any smart home.

Works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home


Wemo Light Switch works seamlessly with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to give you hands-free voice control over your lights. Pair Wemo Light Switch with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant built-in devices like Google Home to turn your lights on or off with just the power of your voice.

Works with Nest Products


When paired with Nest’s Thermostat, Nest’s “home” and “away” modes can sync with your Wemo Light Switch for automatic control. Nest can tell Wemo when you’re home or away, so your porch light can greet you when you come home, and switch off when you’re away to conserve energy.

Works with IFTTT

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They are great...... when they work. I have 2 switches that were installed about 3 weeks ago and a new one that was installed 4 days ago. The 4 day old switch failed after 2 days (blinking yellow light). Restarting the device by pushing the restart button (that was fun finding that there was a restart switch and where it was. Instructions with the switch don't tell you). I had to do a factory reset (again, finding out how to do that was not fun, not included in the box) then the switch worked after re-installing it. Two days later one of the 4 week old switches was blinking yellow. Another factory reset and reinstall. So two of my 3 switches failed within a month, one within 2 days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Usefulness is questionable It wasn't until I impulse purchased these for a good price that I realized how few places I can really use them. The limits on them are high--no multi-gang or lights with multiple switches really limits the places I would want to use this--no front porch (multi gang), no living room (multi-switch), no master bedroom (multi-switch). Before purchasing, I highly recommend you examine your home to see where you could use them. I installed one in a second bedroom just to test, and it works fine. I don't like the button feel at all, however. It feels squishy and imprecise. Would skip on them, given the opportunity again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can be used for 3 pole switches!!! I see a lot of people saying these can NOT be used for 3 pole switches, or a light that is controlled by more than one switch. Answer is, it can. Here's how... Lets say you have a light switch in the garage that you do not need to turn on the front patio lights. All you do is take the two black wires and tie them together and cap it effectively killing that switch. The other wires you just cap and you are done. Voila!! Obviously you are going to have a hole where the light switch was, but I just bought a cap and covered it. But yeah, kill the light switch and now my front patio lights are controlled only from that switch I need in the inside hallway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but needs 3-way feature I love the WeMo light switches but not having a switch for 3-way lights is disappointing. If this doesn't come out soon I will likely be purchasing a competitors product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointed by my lack of planning... I have other Belkin products and have always been pleased with them. So I was really excited to get this switch. I have a light switch that is hidden behind my refrigerator and wanted to use it there. Because it "works with any one way switch", and the changing the switch requires moving a Refrigerator, I didn't check the switch box first. I should have, No Ground wire. This device Requires the Ground. Be aware that not all switches are wired the same. It is not uncommon to have a "one way" switch that does not conform to the requirements of the Wemo Light switch. Check your switch box BEFORE you make the mistake I did. Now, to find a light switch this will work with...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Check your wiring for the Wi-Fi Light Switch The Wemo light switch requires a few things you may not have. One is a neutral wire. Some household wiring runs only have one leg of the wiring going through the electrical box. The second item is space. A small or congested box may challenge the replacement of a much smaller standard switch with the Wemo. A third caution is that 3-ways are not supported. Wemo is a great product and I have installed a good number of switches but its size could be smaller. A version using a battery to provide the necessary wifi power would also be a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to connect I purchased a Joso smart switch first because it was less than half the price of the Belkin model. After an hour of trying to connect the Joso smart switch, I returned it in favor of this one hoping that it would connect easily. Installation was simple and once installed, it connected immediately to my WiFi and to Alexa/Amazon Echo. Another good thing is that you could turn it off using the switch and then back on using either voice controls or the app. I did notice a lag of a few seconds sometimes, but other times there was very little lag. Pros: connects easily and works well with WiFi/Alexa/Amazon Echo Cons: more expensive, not as pretty as some others in my opinion

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product with one feature request. I have two of these installed at home and I'll be installing a 3rd one. I have other wemo devices all over my home and love the idea of turning on the lights remotely. the only thing I wish the wemo light switch can provide is a feature to dim lights specially if it's hooked up to dimmable led lights. All you have to do is make the current to be variable output. I wouldn't mind reinstalling new light switches if it had that feature.
