Rated 4 out of 5 by McGnarley from Love this light switch! I love this light switch. It's my first as I've started setting up my smart home. The switch was very easy to install and setup, and I'm planning to buy more. One important thing - the switch works with both standard single pole switches and 3-way switches. It works with my Google Home Hub, very convenient and foolproof so far. I'm still playing with the various modes but do like the auto-off feature. I plan of putting these in s few important downstairs locations to start, then add them to all the closets and bathrooms. I'll definitely have these installed throughout the house before our next vacation so I can automate the interior lighting to make it appear someone is home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lacoeur from Great upgrade, but won't work with all switches I have been waiting for this release. I have so many 3 way switches in my home and have been eagerly awaiting for this to drop! Sadly, my quest continues. This will only work for a 3-way switch that is in solo receptacle. In other words, if you have a 3 way switch that is in a 2 or 3 gang switch box, it likely won't work. My 3 ways are in a 2 gang and a 3 gang and has some daisy chaining within it. This mean, not the correct number of available wires. I was very disappointed. Looks like these will go into some single poles for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLCII from Just what I needed I bought these to install at our vacation cabin for a set of outside flood lights that are on a three way circuit. We have had friends and family stay there and they have forgotten to turn off the flood lights before they left. These allow me to remotely turn them off or on as required. I have many WEMO switches and outlets at my cabin and also at my home. They do what I need them to do. If I had to say anything negative it would be about the WEMO app. Sometimes it can be a little difficult to figure out and tying the devices to Alexa on two different accounts can add to the confusion.

Process is pretty much as installing any other switch, which makes the transition to this technology very easy. The app worked as presented, so that transition was also very easy. The process of using it consistently takes some time as one is used to turn the switch at the wall. Once you develop a strategy for use, the process becomes more integrated into your day to day activity. I am very pleased with the switch and its capabilities and look to implement more of these technologies in more places in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoCalMiguel from Worth the wait for the New Wemo 3-Way switches! We have several other Wemo products for fans and floor lamps that have worked excellently for us for years, but I always wanted to control our ceiling lights and have matching switches for single and 3-way circuits. These do the job nicely! I agree with another poster that they are a bit deep and that made my 3 gang install tight, but they do work. We also like that the second generation switches have a less bright light on them. They work perfectly with a legacy switch and a single Wemo 3-way on each circuit. Our home was built in 1997 and we have Google WiFi mesh. Already planning a few more circuits to get the lights we would want to voice control or use the time of day settings (porch lights) connected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KenF from Light at my finger tips! Never worry about a dark house again. After straight forward hookup, if you ever replaced a light switch your fine, you can now set your lights from anywhere. I utilize this switch to automatically turn my bedroom table light on nightly. It provides both an automatic source of light before bed as well as a sense of secutiry when i am traveling. The Wemo app works great with my Samsung phone. I am already looking for the next location for an additonal switch for both light and security reasons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dan28088 from Works great - but setup can be rough Installation was fine, but connection to HomeKit and Wemo app was not - kept getting errors that the device was not supported. Here is the fix - If you have a dual band network, switch from your 5Ghz to the 2.4Ghz before you start. Then, when the app recognizes the switch it can hand off settings for the 2.4Ghz network and all will be fine. Went round and round with errors and device reset before this occurred to me. Once the change to my iPhone X was made it worked fine. For the second installation I started with the 2.4 option and it was fine. Then I did a full reset and put my iPhone back on 5Ghz and tried again - same errors. Reset again and dropped the network selection back to 2.4 and setup was fine. Now that both 3-way switches are in (different rooms of course) they work great
