Belkin WeMo Light Switch for Android


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.

WeMo App


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.

Program your lights to turn on or off at specified times


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 is compatible with regular faceplates


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. Learn more


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.

WeMo Family


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Router per App. WEMO app will only allow one router (wifi) to be installed on your device (iPhone, etc.) To explain: My friend and I each bought a WEMO plug/switch. We installed the plug at her house first and installed the WEMO app on both our iPhones. Super easy! I then went home and was able to switch HER light on and off from MY house. Cool, but kinda spooky for her. Then I installed my switch at my house. Followed the installation instructions exactly and was able to turn light on/off manually, but my switch did not show up on the WEMO app on my phone. But, my friends did still show up on app on my phone. Go figure. It wasn't until I clicked the "forget and disable" button, thereby removing her switch from my device that my switch then immediately appeared in my app. Problem solved! Totally awesome device!! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE my WeMo Switch! I received this switch from my son as a gift and I couldn't be happier. The wiring in my house is older (I live in New England) but I found online video instructions and got it up and running without a problem. Besides the schedules and rules I have set for daily living, I love that I can control my lighting when I am on vacation. The app is easy to use and I am looking forward to adding more of these in my home. I have some lights that always seem to get left on and I am pretty sure I could save money by having a rule that will shut them off when I forget. I do wish WeMO had a 3-way switch available. I was also happy to learn that WeMo and Nest play nicely together. I was worried I would have to have two different apps if I went with a nest thermostat. Make sure you check the wiring requirements before purchasing if you live in housing that has older wiring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pointless without dimming The real value in home automation is, for example, not just to have your lights go from darkness to blinding in the morning, but to RAMP (or dim) up over a long period of time, or to any level. Clap on clap off went out in the 80s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All that I had hoped for I got this light switch about 7months ago. Really handy I can turn the lights on in the house from anywhere and when we leave and it's daylight come home and it's dark I can turn on the lights before we get home. I'm no electrician but it was easy to install

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT WORKING!!!!! it worked great until I went from DSL to cable, I've tried everything, re-boot, re-set, unplug, re-plug while holding both switches, leaving off over night, it blinks blue , then yellow forever....I GIVE UP!!!, nothing should be that difficult.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! absolutely great switch! I was fortunate enough when I moved into my new home to have the necessary wiring at the switch to use a few of these. In a short amount of time we had them set up and working on both my wife's phone and my phone as well as connected with nick names to our Amazon Echo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy for my customers to use I am an Electrician in the Phoenix Metro. I have installed several of these switches for our customers. They are easy to install, easy to link to my customer's phones, and easy for my customers to re-program when necessary. I love these switches because they don't "act up" after I leave the home like radio frequency switches do. If I leave, and something stops working, my customers can usually figure out that it was an error on their part or call me and I can walk them through it on the phone. The only feature that I wish was offered was a color assortment. I install these switches in alot of regular homes with white finishes, but I also install them in alot of custom homes with almond, gray, black, or brown devices. After using these switches for about a year, I have decided to stock all of my service trucks with them.
