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

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.


  • Keeps its programming and the correct time and date during power outages
  • Has no batteries to wear out
  • No minimum wattage so works with all incandescent, halogen, CFL, fluorescent and LED lighting
  • Can also control ceiling fans
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I have looking for I’ve got 2 switches so far, there great. easy to install (DIY) connect to my home network and control through the app. My outside lights use a rule and come on 15 minutes after sunset and stay on till 8:30pm, the switch automatically adjusts the on time for lengthening or shortening of the days (cool) I put another in the kitchen so i can turn lights on from my car in the garage, no more fumbling in the dark with hands full of groceries trying to find the switch “the lights are already on” I see more Wemo products in my future. great job belkin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WeMo is great for the home We love our WeMo products. Great for porch lights, attic fans, lights, Christmas tree lights, etc. We find that these are more user friendly than some of the other ones out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great device, just missing one key feature Purchased three of these devices for a new home my girlfriend and I just purchased. It started with the echo dot, then philips hue, then wemo. I have to say I think that having the switches versus the bulbs only is great. Price: The price was great when I purchased them. I got them with the student discount which really made them very attractive to me. Compared to buying bulbs separately, in some cases it's much cheaper with the switch. One fixture has 8 bulbs and would bring me over 100 dollars to use bulbs versus a switch. Look: I like the simplistic look of the switch, not too busy which is nice. Installation: Being the first time I've delved into electrical installation, it was very easy to do. Do note that you need to have a neutral wire in the wall to do this, which I lucked out and had. You match either of the black wires to the black wires on the box, the neutral to the white, and the ground to the green. Wire nuts were easy to use, and I did NOT twist the wires before putting the nut on and it seems to be fine. Couple of screws and you snap the plate on the wall, and you're done. Obviously make sure there is no electric on when installing, turn the breaker off first! Setup: Setup was easy. After electric was back on, the orange light blinks. Download the app, and connect to the wireless network that the switch gives off. Go to the app, and follow the instructions, which pretty much is connecting to your home network. It also gives you the option to name the switches whatever you want to. Functionality: works great. Without the app or Alexa, it functions as a normal switch. With the app, it gives you so many options. I LOVE the fact that you can turn it on or off when you're off your home network. Integration with Alexa was easy. It was discovered instantly with the Alexa app. Set it up there, and can turn them on and off with just my voice! What it's missing: I gave it 4 stars because of no dimmer, but Belkin is coming out with dimmers which I'm excited to try! Will add pictures later if I can edit this review, but overall I am extremely happy with these and would recommend them to family and friends!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless to me All of my switch housings only have 3 wires, the black which is switched and the ground. House was built in 1984.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WiFi Feature is Great Purchased one about 9 months ago. Easy to install and easy to control. Turn your lights on or off from anywhere you have WiFi or set your own custom schedule. I have recently purchased two more. Belkin products work well but don't talk about their weak customer service group because they won't post your review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I just bought two of these on 12/30/2016 and so far so good. I have two light fixtures that look really nice with edison light bulbs so I didn't want to replace them with smart bulbs but the switches were in a really inconvenient places but not now. "Hey Alexa turn on kitchen light" and boom let there be light. The only thing I would change is I would add a dimming feature to the switch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Bought one to control an outside light where the switch was in the garage. I liked it so much I bought two more to outside lights. So far no issues and I like the convenience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't lose your phone If you loose your phone and are away from home there isn't anyway to reconnect the app on your new phone until you return home. Probably the same thing will happen if you have to hard reset your phone or the app gets deleted accidentally.
