The Wi-Fi enabled Wemo Insight Switch connects your home appliances and electronic devices to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to turn devices on or off, program customized notifications and change device status - from anywhere. Wemo Insight Switch can monitor your electronics and will send information about the device’s energy usage directly to your smartphone or tablet. Perfect to pair with space heaters, wall A/C units, TVs, washers, dryers, fans, lights and more.

Receive notifications


Download the free Wemo App to as many smartphones and tablets as you like to create rules and custom schedules. The Wemo App can be as flexible as you need and allows you to create rules that are easy to set up and can easily be changed. You can even receive notifications that are personalized to meet your needs.

Get notified when your laundry cycle is finished so that you avoid wrinkled clothes, know when your child has exceeded their daily TV limit and turn it off, or find out if you left the space heater on accidentally.

Show home energy usage


It no longer has to be a mystery how much energy the washer/dryer consumes. Or how long you left the window A.C. running when you weren't even home. The Wemo Insight Switch sends energy and cost reports right to your phone, and provides tools for saving cash on your next bill.

Set a timer to turn the A.C. off after you fall asleep. Set a schedule so the kids can't watch more than an hour of TV (saving energy AND their brains). Gain insight (see what we did there?) into how much it costs to dry your clothes versus hanging them up. Hunt down the power hogs in your house , and start saving cash. (Cost savings will vary, obviously). 

Connect via Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G networks


To install Wemo Insight Switch, simply plug the Switch into an outlet in your home and then plug an electronic device or appliance into the switch. Download the free Wemo App from either the Google Play Store or the Apple App store to any smart device. Wemo Insight Switch keeps you connected to your electronics anywhere you are--over Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G networks.

Wemo Family

It's a Mod, Mod World

One of the beauties of Wemo is its modularity. Control one lamp or all of them. Dip a toe into smart-home tech, or dive in headfirst. There's a Wemo for every situation: Light Switches for your porchlight or those swanky recessed ceiling lights in the man-cave. Switches for your plug-in lamps and fans. Insight Switches for devices you want to monitor for energy savings. Control them all from your app, with no hub. Go forth and modulize.


Wemo Insight Switch is compatible with Apple (iOS 8 and higher) and Android (4.1 and higher devices) and your existing Wi-Fi router. It is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

Works with Amazon Alexa

Works with Amazon Alexa

Wemo Switch, Insight Switch and Light Switch work seamlessly with Amazon Echo, Amazon Dot and Amazon Tap to give you hands-free, vocal control over your stuff. Want to turn off the fan? Turn on the floor lamp? Shut off the TV in the kids' room before their brains melt? When Wemo and Alexa work together, all you have to do is speak your mind. Literally.

Wemo works with Nest Learning Thermostat

Wemo works with Nest Learning Thermostat

Nest's "home" and "away" modes can tell your Wemo switches what you're up to. If you're out, your desk fan turns off so the cat doesn't lose another inch of its tail. When you return, that fake Tiffany lamp your Grandma left you is burning brightly to welcome you home. And you can adjust basic Thermostat settings without leaving the Wemo app, thus conserving valuable thumb-tapping time.

"If This, Then That" is a free web-based service that lets you do an amazing array of things with your Wemo. Visit IFTTT.com to find "recipes" for making Wemo turn lights on and off based on real-world events, send you push notifications about device activity, or take advantage of your phone's geo-fencing capabilities to know if you're home or away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rules don't work I love this idea. I bought one with high hopes however my hopes have been shattered. The schedule doesn't work. Creating rules for my lamp to turn on and off simply doesn't work. I will be returning this to Best Buy for a full refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceeds my expectations I'd love to be one of the consumers to test/evaluate your products, I see, understand and value the potential for this line of devices. I got this device on a whim, i saw it at a good price and figured i'd give one a try. I debated getting 2 or more at the price it was advertised at, but decided not to because i wasn't sure how it would work. Just don't plan on plugging 2 of these into your 2 outlet wall jack, it only fits in the top position to avoid obstructing the other outlet. Now that i have one WeMo Insight device in house, i wish i would have bought more! It was simple to install and i got very insightful information back immediately. No pun intended, it was literally insightful! I cannot believe the energy that is being pulled by some devices, even when they are off. I know that in the first month of using this device i will likely save $7 on my electricity bill. That was achieved by simply using the app to shut the power off to connected devices, which prevents all the phantom energy from being used. I also now have a better understanding how power thirsty some devices are when they are operating, so i can be smarter about how i consume energy. Besides the very simple application i've explored so far, i have many other things i want to try once i have additional devices. I want to explore more of the rules and monitoring aspects, but i am very happy with this purchase. Anytime i purchase something that helps me save money over the long run, i am pretty happy. This was a real eye opener and i am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, easy and flexible I bought this to replace the old style timer that needs physical manilulation everytime tou need to set the timer. WeMo was small, easy and I bought my second one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from unusable because WeMo app requires Android 4.4 I am still waiting for WeMo app for Android 4.1. I added this line because my review was "2 characters too short".

Rated 2 out of 5 by from limited value I bought two WeMo insight outlet/switches to try out in "mission critical" applications. The results are not promising. I plugged one into a wine a/c unit that has to keep a room at below 60 consistently. And one on a critical sump pump that has to always be available when any significant rain occurs, to avoid a flooded finish basement. 1. Both WeMo units spontaneously turned OFF this morning at 4am. My guess is that it was related to a rain storm which included a couple of thunderclaps within some minutes of when the WeMo units reported stopping running. Although this was a modest storm and certainly none of the lightning/thunder seemed close, the fact that both units defaulted to OFF, when they were both supposed to be ON, points to some super-sensitivity of these WeMo units. Nothing else in the building was affected. So, on this alone, I have to abandon my trial, since I cannot have something turning off these machines permanently without my knowing. Once I noticed the problem and turned the WeMo units on, the pump and a/c unit came on easily enough, but this amounts to zero reliability. 2. Notifications of the rules I had established seemed to be erratic. I would be getting notices consistently every few minutes when a device turned on or off or was on for x amount of time, but then the notices would stop for hours on end, even though the units were running many times an hour. 3. The wattages being reported as used were suspect. a) the a/c unit, which the manufacturer told me yesterday runs between 900-1000 watts consistently when each unit leaves the factory, was reported by Wemo as being about 740 watts. So, probably a 20% or so error, presumably. b) the sump pump was only running for 15 second intervals every 5-8 minutes, and even though it is a 1/3 hp pump, the daily report is saying that it is using 0.003 kilowatt hours per half hour. Which if I do the math right, means it is using .003 x 1000 = 3.0 watts / half hour or 6.0 watts per hour. Waaaa? A large pump that is turning on 10 times an hour and shooting many gallons of water up a 10 ft pipe each time, used only a few watts in the entire hour. I may have almost discovered a perpetual motion machine -- though I think not. So, maybe I can use these devices to turn on and off a couple of lights, but not for anything I really need to depend on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from worked for a week. I have two of the insight switches and they worked as I wanted them to. Yesterday I disabled the rules for both of the switches and moved one to a different outlet (the picture). It won't turn on manually or via the app. It is as dead as it comes. I thought at least it would last a few more weeks. I don't want to buy it again as well as deal with your expensive customer services for this unit. I didn't find any information on what could be wrong. I tried the reset, but neither the wifi icon or anything works. I could use some guidance on this puppy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I was concerned about the way that my refrigerator was running. I bought the WeMo Insight switch so that I could find out how much power it was consuming and how long it was running. The average power consumed while on and average total run time for the day are valuable pieces of information, and I love the remote monitoring. I would give the Insight switch 5 stars if it would show the total run time and power consumption for the last, say, 10-15 days. In addition, I would tell all my friends about it if you could save that information to a spreadsheet!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Has potential, but software is limited I bought this as a way to get a notification when my washing machine is done. You can set the power threshold, but not a time threshold (for example: only switch to idle if power is less than 2W for at least 1 minute). Without the time threshold, I get a notification every time my washer switches modes (wash, rinse, spin) and sometimes a few extra due to who knows what. It's more or less worthless for its intended use.
