You plug it in one last time but it still doesn’t work
I don't quite understand why Wemo has such a brand presence in the IoT space. Their devices are clumsy and I find myself fighting against them rather than them making my life easier.
If you have a router that merges your 2.4 and 5Ghz signals under one SSID (If you don't see 5g or 2.4 in your network name, this might mean you), this device can be difficult to set up. The plug only works on 2.4 like most IoT devices, but appeared to not be able to find that signal while my phone was connected to the 5G signal. Took a lot of work to get it set up, not something I think Mom would be able to setup, which is my rule of thumb for set experience.
Once setup, the plug has trouble staying connected to my network. My router can dynamically change wifi channels to avoid interference, which isn't a problem for 99% of devices. This one however, disconnect and won't reconnect until I power cycle it, kinda defeating the purpose of having a smart plug in the first place. I ended up having to disable that feature on my router to work around their poor wifi implementation
Next, the physical design of the device is a little bulky for my usage. It can block other plugs in the same outlet.
And finally, why is this so expensive?? If you made it this far in my review, go buy 2 or 3 smart plugs elsewhere for the same cost.
I left 2 stars here because after fighting with it so much, it works fine. It doesn't look pretty and I would never buy another, yet it stays plugged in, hidden behind furniture.
To showcase how ridiculous this feature is and how it's enforced implementation by Wemo is even more of a safety issue, My Internet Router, Wireless Access point and other gear plug into a strip that plugs into the Wemo insight. I also have several security cameras around the property that rely on wireless access for notifications and the like. These are plugged into regular outlets.
I had a Power outage and the Wemo did not "self power back on" or go back to the previous state which was on. Therefore, my Internet connection remained down, my wireless remained down and my cameras were in effect useless as they could not record to the cloud and or to my local storage since the network was down until I manually powered on the Wemo. IFFT and all other automation apps that people will recommend all require internet access to detect the state of a device and therefore act, so they (I believe) are not a solution to this problem as stated.
Wemo if you are reading this, it is a glaring miss on your part. What's more bothersome is that users have been requesting this feature for over 5 yrs with several examples such as mine given of why your implementation of this feature is a limiter. I bought several of these devices and I'm looking for replacement options based on their inaction and for the simple fact that the "feature" introduces more risk than I care to deal with.
