Maximum Power Capacity of Wemo Insight
The Wemo Insight uses very little power and this is about 1/6 of the power that a clock radio consumes.  Wemo devices use less than 1.5 Watts.
IMPORTANT:  It is normal that your Wemo feels warm when in use.  However, your Wemo should never feel hot.  If it feels hot, unplug the unit and allow it to cool down.  Make sure you are not overloading your Wemo device.  The maximum power capacity of Wemo is 15 Amps, 1800 Watts at 120 Volts U.S.  Exceeding this limit can damage your Wemo device.  If you are not using close to or over Wemo's maximum capacity and the unit still feels hot, discontinue use and contact Belkin Support immediately. 

NOTE:  The Wemo Insight's plugs and voltage requirements vary per region or country.

Bandwidth and Firmware
Wemo Insight uses very little bandwidth on your home network.  Wemo will only use your internet bandwidth when you have Remote Access enabled.
When a firmware update is available for your Wemo device, make sure that you update it.  To know how, click here.
