Wemo Light Switch


The Wemo Smart Light Switch allows you to control your lights from the wall, the Wemo app, or with your voice*. This smart light switch connects to your existing home WiFi 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 lights from anywhere.


Wemo Light Switch lets you easily set automatic schedules for any light. Using the free Wemo App, you can schedule your lights to turn off at sunrise, or synchronize your porch light with the sunset so you never come home to a dark house.

Home with all the lights on while the sun is rising
Wemo App with Multiple Wemo devices listed


Wemo gives you another level of control over your Wemo devices with its long-press feature. You can group multiple Wemo devices together and turn everything on or off with a single 2-second press on your Wemo Light Switch.


With the ability to randomize your lights, Wemo Light Switch protects your home better than a mechanical timer. When set to "Away Mode," Light Switch will turn lights on and off randomly to make it appear like you're home - even when you're not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade This is my second WeMo switch. The older one doesn’t work with Apple HomeKit (because I don’t have a bridge). This one has all of the great features you’d expect in a smart switch with the added bonus of working with HomeKit out of the box with no bridge. The WeMo iOS app is, in my opinion, one of the best but I’m excited to have the capability of using this in HomeKit instead of just a separate standalone app. Install is as easy as wiring in a regular light switch. We now have two WeMo switches - one wired to patio lights and this one wired to kitchen ceiling lights. Our favorite feature is the “away” mode - for random light on/off times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Install - nice functionality I installed this on July 1 and found the install to be simple but probably not for the inexperienced. Often a stripped hole in the switch box requires using a larger screw - such was my case. I transferred the larger screw from the old switch but found that its round head did not allow the custom switch cover to install. After searching for a flat head screw, I was able to complete the install. The transition from the written instructions to the WEMO app was a little rough but I worked through it and the switch came up in the network. It responds nicely to remote command and the touch on and off is a nice feature. Definitely useful for any remote switch need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Overall Value I just put in (3) light switches in the garage. The worse place in the house where everyone forgets to turn the outside lights on/off. Now they are on a schedule and the internal and spotlights are accessible from anywhere. The only reason I did not give 5-stars is the documentation and setup is a little kludgey. HomeKit didn't see the switch and the links in the app that go to the Belkin website go no where. Being technical, I figured it all out. Plus the three switches I replaced were wired in series, once I figures out Line vs. Load everything fell into place. I will be adding more throughout the house, may even put in a separate wifi network just for the automation stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One sexy light switch This thing is packed full of features that, unfortunately, I haven't yet been able to take full advantage of since we don't use voice assistants in our home. Setup was pretty much effortless and the WeMo app is quite user-friendly. It's important to know you need to have a neutral wire running to your switch... We live in an older building and I was a little nervous we'd be in trouble, but as luck would have it we were able to complete the installation without any trouble! I dig the ability to randomize when the lights go on while away from home, but to really be usefull you kind of have to go all-out and buy a bunch of these. I'll cross that bridge a little further down the road.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Concept, but Too Bulky I was really excited to learn that Belkin had finally produced a 3-way WEMO switch. Upon learning this, I purchased two 3-way switches, along with a single pole switch. My plan was to install all three in a 3 gang switch box. My plans were quickly thwarted, when I learned that each switch (with the exception of the single pole) had five pigtail wires that were going to have to be wire-nutted! That's 10 wire-nuts for two switches. Now add the single pole switch, which is four more, and now were up to 14! There's no way this was all going to fit into the box. So disappointing. Might I suggest a switch re-design (like the ones I ended up purchasing instead), that allow for wires to be directly connected to the back of the switch without all of the pigtail wires.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love It ... but ... I've had the switch for several weeks and it has operated well. The drawbacks are that it will not stay connected to the WEMO App, but if you have it connected to a Google device, you can still control it which shows to me that it is a problem with the WEMO app. I have other devices that are occasionally not connected, but I can unplug them to get them to reconnect. That is not as easy with the switches. Installation is easy. As others have said, setup is a nightmare. It wants to connect to Apple Home before connecting to the WEMO app. So, it will not show up in the WEMO app. I will say, once you get it setup, it operates as expected and if you can overcome these small drawbacks, you can use it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect way to light up the dark, anywhere! I recently picked up the new version of the Wemo switch to replace a simple wall timer. This one makes the old one practically archaic. Besides being able to remotely control the switch via Alexa and the Apple Home app, I can also control it by my iPhone via the Wemo app. The best part, using the wemo app, was that I was able to set it so it would turn on at dusk and off at dawn. Set it once and I never have to touch it again. Installation was straightforward with pretty much everything included in the box including a set of wire-nuts. Be forewarned that you will need a bit of space in your switch box compared to a regular switch and you will have to have a neutral wire in order to maintain power to it when switched off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly as advertised I've been using this for the last couple weeks. The installation was very easy being that I've installed a few switches in my lifetime. I also have a few Wemo outlets that I currently use, so that might have something to do with the ease of use. I'm very happy with the product. The only downside I'd say is the lack of color options. But, when it comes to fit and finish on the product as it is, I would say it's pretty great!
