Wemo Insight Product Shot


With the Wemo Insight WiFi Smart Plug, you can monitor energy consumption right from your phone or tablet. This Smart Plug provides real-time reports on how much energy your devices are consuming. Use the Smart Plug to monitor how much a space heater is costing you, or how much energy a particular room consumes.


The Wemo Insight Smart Plug uses the existing WiFi router of your home network to provide wireless control of lamps, heaters, fans, and more – with no subscription or hub required. Simply plug the Wemo Insight Smart Plug into an electrical outlet, plug a device into the Smart Plug, and control your device using the free Wemo app. You’ll never have to worry that you accidentally left the space heater or iron on again. Home automation at its best.

Wemo Insight with Iron
Wemo Insight with Fan


Wemo Insight lets you easily set automatic schedules for any device that’s plugged in – from lamps to fans to space heaters. Using the free Wemo app, you can keep your home comfortable by scheduling a fan to turn on at noon, or synchronize a lamp with the sunset so you never come home to a dark house.


With the ability to randomize your lights, Wemo Insight protects your smart home better than a mechanical timer. When you use the Wemo App to activate “Away Mode,” the smart plug will turn plugged-in lights on and off randomly to make it appear like you’re home – even when you’re not.

Wemo Insight with Wemo App


Wemo Insight works seamlessly with Google Home and Amazon Alexa to give you hands-free voice control over your devices. Pair Wemo Insight with Google Home or Amazon Alexa to turn your lights, your appliances, or an entire room on or off with just the power of your voice.


When paired with Nest’s Thermostat, Nest’s “home” and “away” modes can sync with your Wemo Insight for automatic control. Nest can tell Wemo when you’re home or away, so your fan can turn off to save energy when the house is empty. Or your lights can turn on automatically when you walk in the door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product I bought this a week ago and this was the best choice I could have made. I am very happy with its performance. I simply created a rule that turns the light that is connected to it on and off at certain times. I saw where a lot of reviews made initial setup sound complicated, but it was extremely easy (connect to the switches own wifi network and then follow the step by step instructions to connect to your wifi network with your password). I highly recommend this product. I haven't had a chance to get into playing with IFTTT, but I think that will have a lot of benefits.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great device when working but not reliable The concept behind this device is fantastic and for many months it has been working. I have been able to remotely turn my lamp on and off - great to check on the place and show someone is there. However, this is the second time it will not connect any longer. The first time took forever to get support but they did help me to get it working again. The problem is it is happening again for no apparent reason - nothing has changed - and I don't have a lot of time to spend on the phone at that remote location to trouble shoot. I will try again and I love their camera but this device is not reliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Updates ruined it I originally really liked this product. However, after an update last year, it has not worked. I've tried to start over again with it - it just doesn't work. I wouldn't recommend this product to people who want a product that works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy I bought a Wemo Mini first. I loved how easy it was, so I bought another for my living room. We like to have lights come on and off even if we’re not home. No more spinning a dial, pushing a button or getting frustrated with setting times with these little beauties. My hubby did not like the one in the bedroom because of how it was shaped like a little rectangle. So, I bought the Wemo insight after reading about its features and its size. Love all my Wemo’s and the convienence of the app on my phone to reset the rules with the changing daylight savings or going on vacation. Unless I absolutely had to give up my wireless modem in my house, my house will be filled with Wemo’s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Useful I 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 4 out of 5 by from I love my wemos but the software fails them I 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 2 out of 5 by from Barely connects, but when it does it is okay. This thing BARELY works, never connects when you move outlets and it is just such a pain in the rear to reset and re-connect to the network. EVERY OTHER DEVICE (3 laptops, 4 tablets, smart watch, 3 phones) connects flawlessly. This thing... just sucks. WHEN it works, it's fantastic. Probably won't buy any more of them.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great to use but software needs work still. I have three of these and two wall switches. I use the Wemo App on routers with both 2.4ghz and 5ghz. I still can't get them to display the status of the lights right. They'll display either on or off, or opposite of what it actually is. When I click the button to activate though, it will then refresh with correct status and react accordingly. Essentially in the app I have to double click. Other than that, they work great. I just need to find time to build my own windows app so I can integrate with Cortana with windows 10. I don't want to have to pull out my phone all the time because loading app on phone takes a while when I'm already on my computer. I'd love to be able to have cortana turn my fan off or on and what not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from worked for a week. I have two of the insight switches and they worked as I wanted them to. Yesterday I disabled the rules for both of the switches and moved one to a different outlet (the picture). It won't turn on manually or via the app. It is as dead as it comes. I thought at least it would last a few more weeks. I don't want to buy it again as well as deal with your expensive customer services for this unit. I didn't find any information on what could be wrong. I tried the reset, but neither the wifi icon or anything works. I could use some guidance on this puppy.

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 4 out of 5 by from Exceeds my expectations I'd love to be one of the consumers to test/evaluate your products, I see, understand and value the potential for this line of devices. I got this device on a whim, i saw it at a good price and figured i'd give one a try. I debated getting 2 or more at the price it was advertised at, but decided not to because i wasn't sure how it would work. Just don't plan on plugging 2 of these into your 2 outlet wall jack, it only fits in the top position to avoid obstructing the other outlet. Now that i have one WeMo Insight device in house, i wish i would have bought more! It was simple to install and i got very insightful information back immediately. No pun intended, it was literally insightful! I cannot believe the energy that is being pulled by some devices, even when they are off. I know that in the first month of using this device i will likely save $7 on my electricity bill. That was achieved by simply using the app to shut the power off to connected devices, which prevents all the phantom energy from being used. I also now have a better understanding how power thirsty some devices are when they are operating, so i can be smarter about how i consume energy. Besides the very simple application i've explored so far, i have many other things i want to try once i have additional devices. I want to explore more of the rules and monitoring aspects, but i am very happy with this purchase. Anytime i purchase something that helps me save money over the long run, i am pretty happy. This was a real eye opener and i am very pleased.

Rated 4 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 Intelligent moneysaver! Bought the Wemo Insight to control light switches from my phone but soon found another use. It is currently controlling my heat pump via schedules and saves a lot of money every day. If I get home early I can turn it on from my phone or tablet - so easy. And power consumption is recorded as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teach an Old Lamp New Tricks We 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 Wonderful use and features. I ordered my insight switch in September of 2014 and I have loved it without any issues, ever. It works with Alexa and I currently run my large air filter on it and love to see what it draws and costs/month average...very neat. Just ordered two more to monitor my Christmas lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love LOVE this thing! Purchased the Belkin Wemo Insight February 11th 2016. So far it's been rock solid. I have it paired with my amazon echo and can yell at it from across the house to turn the lamp on. I've had numerous other brands of remote ip switches, but none of them have been as stable and reliable as this one has been. I've been through 2 firmware updates which completed without a hitch. Software on iOS feels polished and updated. I love the ability to schedule on and off times. Currently looking at purchasing two more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless - remote access not working No remote access if not in the same network. I reset the device 5 times. Works 1 - 3 days well (as it should to according description), but then suddenly fell back: no history-data (time-on/ time-off/etc), no remote access. Device is useless. Set-up is very time-consumpting. --- After this experience I rememered earlier experience with Belkin-Devices some years ago: same, devices are not reliable. Will avoed this brand for the next years

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great so far Works as expected. The iOS app had few glitches when setting up, but it all worked fine. No apple homekit support and there won't be, but hoping belkin to release a hub that supports homekit. No google home native support but it works great thru ifttt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not work with Google Home This WeMo Insight Switch works fine with my Andriod phone, but does not work with Google Home. There are technical articles out there stating that it does, but it currently does not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smart plug I needed a way to control some lights at our vacation home. Th is plug works great. I can turn the lights on using the app and I can set rules so that they come on and go off at specific times and days when I'm not there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Link very poorly This is the most finicky device I've ever used. Worked for a while, then I needed to reset it again, that worked for another day, same issue. Now it rarely finds the wifi server. I've tried moving it... same thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gives Good Information Set up instruction could be better. Have some issues with not seeing all devices. Don't know if it's the device problem or WiFi issues. Other WiFi devices work fine without any dropping off line or not showing up.

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 4 out of 5 by from Works well Nice compact switch. Still gives access to other plug in at the wall outlet. Easy to set up. Converting from X10. The price could be cheaper for what it is. It should be able to dim at this price.
Date published: 2016-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super handy efficient for IOT around home.... Once one successfully links the Insight switch to one's WiFi network, it can be programmed to control a wide variety of very useful tasks. Control is only a cell phone away or directly on device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, pain to setup It was a pain to setup, it kept not connecting to wifi and required multiple firmware updates. The app also froze a bunch, after the setup it works great.
Date published: 2017-12-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a handy outlet I purchased this outlet to automatically turn on and off an aquarium light. It works perfectly using the app to set an on and an off time. The only complaint would be that the aquarium light only draws 1 amp. In order to use the features of the outlet to calculate the energy usage, I can only set the standby draw at 2 amps. So, it never knows when it is on and when it is off causing the energy usage to be incorrect. Not a problem for my application but users should beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love WeMo Devices!!! I have many WeMo devices - easy to setup and control lights and or power to other devices. Amazon Echo voice control works great...
