The Wi-Fi enabled WeMo Light Switch allows you to turn lights on and off from anywhere--from across the house, from the backyard, or from the other side of the world. WeMo Light Switch replaces a standard light switch in your home and can be controlled remotely with an Android smartphone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. It works with your existing Wi-Fi network and anywhere your smartphone or tablet has an Internet connection (3G or 4G LTE). Easy for most Do It Yourselfers.
Download the free WeMo app to your compatible Android smartphone or tablet or your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to get started. Our award-winning WeMo app has been designed so that simple or more complex tasks can be accomplished with ease. With our updated app, you can also explore new features such as a customizable long press option (used with IFTTT), enhanced sunrise/sunset rules, and away mode setting.
The app also allows you to schedule tasks as simple as turning lights on after dark or before your kids come home from after-school activities, or turning specific lights off every day to reduce power consumption. More complex tasks feature turning light on and off at different times on different days. Customized schedules can be easily adjusted using the WeMo app, even when you are away from home
Not only can you program your lights to turn on or off at specified times, you can also set them to respond to the sun. Simply enter your city name in the WeMo App and then program your porch lights to turn on at sunset and off at sunrise.
The sunset and sunrise times update every day, so whatever the season, your lights will come on when you want them to. You can also combine sun and time rules--for example, you can program your lights to turn on at sunset and off at 11pm every day. The WeMo App automatically adjusts for daylight savings
WeMo Light Switch was designed for DIY installation. Watch the installation video for detailed steps, including how to check your existing switch to make sure it has a neutral wire. The included faceplate seamlessly clicks onto the wall and hides the screws underneath.
Please note that the WeMo Light Switch is not compatible with lights controlled by more than one switch or with metal face plates. Metal face plates interfere with Wi-Fi signals and will not allow this product to work correctly in your home
The switch features subtle backlighting, making it easy to find in the dark. You can manually turn the switch on or off by simply tapping it. It's so simple, a toddler can do it.
The WeMo collection of products are designed to work together via the free WeMo App so that you control and monitor as much or as little of your home as you like. You can easily add additional WeMo products including Smart LED Bulbs, WeMo Switch, WeMo Motion, WeMo Light Switch or WeMo Insight Switches at any time to any room to control and monitor multiple devices or appliances. Program home automation triggers like using your WeMo Motion to turn on your WeMo LED lights when you walk into a room, or use the WeMo Insight Switch to learn about the cost savings of installing additional WeMo Smart LED bulbs--the combinations are endless.
Amazon Echo (sold separately) lets you control Light Switch using just your voice. Turn on the entry light with your hands full, or turn off the living room fan just by saying so. Voice command also lets family or guests control connected devices without having to access the WeMo App.
IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement: if this then that. IFTTT works with the WeMo collection of products to connect your home electronics to a whole world of online apps. Get a text or email when the front door opens, turn the lights on when the sun sets...the possibilities are countless.
