Setting up the Usage Alerts rule on the Wemo® Insight Smart Plug, F7C029

One of the special features of the Wemo® Insight Smart Plug, F7C029 is its Usage Alerts.  With this option, you can create a rule when power is sensed (either ON/OFF) or power is ON for a length of time (hrs/min).  Also, you can monitor how long a device has been ON/OFF for a specific time duration.  For example, you can monitor how long the TV has been ON or how long a game console has been OFF.
