Aww. It’s really amazing ND fun to use. I can actually be in my room and controlling certain appliances with an app on my phone. So cool and I’m looking forward to more smarter objects from Belkin.
Awesome I tell you. I got the wemo smart plug last week and using some appliances in my home just got cooler. The app is easy to use and controlling these appliances just got more fun.
Really? Someone got it for me but I guess he didn’t know he has to explain the function, how to use and all that. Now I think I have an idea of how to go around it.
The Wemo mini smart plug is a great innovation. I have once got my fridge damaged due to high voltage, but with Wemo smart plug which enables me to control my appliances from anywhere I am is of a great advantage. I will recommend it

THIS SYSTEM ROCKS! I live in a home with nothing but women. Myself, my wife, and our five…. FIVE daughters. The youngest is 13 and the oldest is 22. Needless to say, we have a lot of hair tool action and coffee making going on in this house. My daughters are bright and very smart girls but they don’t always remember to turn their tools off. I got the Wemo outlets for the whole home and I fee safer knowing that they can be turned off if no one is home. I would hate to think of our house burning down. Highly recommend these things.
My wife is one of those women who needless to say, lovers using hot tools on her hair. One time she left it on and the feature that was suppose to turn it off failed. The cat knocked it off her vanity and it burned the carpet and started a small fire. Thankfully we had just got home so the damage was only done in the bedroom. We sued the company and I started using Belkin Wemo devices in the bedroom and the kitchen. I am not risking that again! We got enough money to fix the damage and then some so we did move. The insurance covered the damage. The settlement not only bought us a new home but I have a chunk of money left over for my future child’s college tuition. Still not worth it… Someone could have died be it one of us or one of our pets.

I had this issue happen to me when I left the toaster oven on. I use it nearly every morning before work to heat up a quick breakfast and I forgot to turn it off several times. Well, last year was the final straw and I nearly destroyed my whole house. Thankfully my friend happened to be running there and called 911. I am still not done remodeling. Very happy to have home insurance but using the Wemo system would have saved me all this trouble. I ordered them a few weeks back and I am using them in the kitchen.
I love the Wemo system! I was actually turned on by them from someone at work who recently had a baby. She said the system is so easy and compact. I had to get it for myself and I have nothing but great things to say. It is so easy to use and just a wonderful product over all!

I actually had to hire someone to help me install this system but it was worth it. I know next to nothing when it comes to the electric in my home. If you know about it, know someone who does, or don’t mind paying to have it installed… The system is fantastic. Belkin is a superb company.
I’m one of those early adopters of smart plugs. Home automation system is no longer a futuristic concept, it’s already here and it’s helping make household appliances much more efficient. The good thing is that smart plugs work well with security systems. Belkin Wemo suite of home automation system appears to have more functionality than other brands. The monitoring part using the apps and website are arguably the best in the market.
