Equipped with WiFi, the Wemo light switch lets you turn the lights on or off from anywhere. Pretty neat, eh? Now you can control your lights without needing to be anywhere in or even near your house, or set up rules for time-specific operation.

More Information

You pride yourself in your DIY skills, but some days, it's great to take the brainwork out of making things work the way you want them to. Take for example the WiFi-enabled Wemo light switch. It's so easy to use, you're tempted to swap all your house lights with smart Wemo LED bulbs (sold separately).

You can already hear the oohs and aahs every time your lights just turn on or fade away slowly of their own volition. With a "wave" of your smartphone or tablet, you can discreetly set the ambience when the occasion calls for it, or better yet, program your lights to follow the rise and setting of the sun. Among many cool things the Wemo light switch can do, it can also direct your porch lights to turn on or off at the opportune time.

Ain't that a bright idea.

Why you need this:

  • Light up your home from anywhere: Imagine lights turning on and off when you're on vacation to throw off overly curious passersby. The Wemo light switch lets you control lighting remotely or schedule tasks via the free Wemo app on your smart device.
  • Easy to install: If you're handy with tools, the Wemo light switch is for you. In fact, you don't need tools; the included faceplate seamlessly clicks onto your wall and covers the screws underneath.
  • Works with what you've got: It replaces a standard light switch in your home, connects with your existing WiFi, and works with your smart device anywhere there's mobile internet, or 3G or 4G LTE networks.
  • Convenient: Download the free Wemo app to your compatible Android or iOS device and open up a better-lit world. Schedule tasks to reduce energy use, or adjust settings remotely. Through the app, you'll also be able to connect to IFTTT, a service that'll let you create "recipes" for connecting to apps, websites, and devices so they can do specific tasks for you.
  • Designed for a connected home: The Wemo app acts like a hub for all Wemo products, including Wemo switch, Wemo smart LED bulbs, Wemo Motion, or Wemo Insight switches (all sold separately) to monitor and control multiple devices, and even appliances.

Never got it to reconnect after power outage

After a power outage the lightswitch never reconnected back to the modem. I've tried: numerous resets, app re-install, modem reset, password change, everything else on their forum...Spent days trying to fix it. Good to have a wifi switch with google home, just don't get a WeMo...

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Finally got it to work!!!

None of my switches were staying connected to Wi-Fi but after 3 months of troubleshooting I realized it was my Access points after going into my controller and turning off Wi-Fi roaming on my Ubiquiti AP's my WeMo's work perfectly. The customer support experience was terrible and they lead me to to believe it was a firmware issue with my switches which was completely wrong Either way the Wemo switches usually work right out of the box and they work perfectly now that I fixeed the AP settings

  • from Thornhill, ON

Works as intended

Bought it almost 1 year ago and is working since then. You need white wire avail in the box to power it. Set up through Wemo app without issues (if you change router or WiFi password you must set it again). I was able to voice command it through Google Home but it takes a few seconds to complete due to the cloud. But real functionality you'll get through IFTTT. I used it for front house lights to turn on at dusk and off at dawn. The issue with IFTTT is if internet is down, it won't work. Although there aren't 3 way WiFi switches, this could be used as such but with some programming (search youtube) but you'll have to set your own home automation server as IFTTTT seconds delay won't make it work properly. The only con is the price still too high.

Faulty Product

I bought two of these switches last November. They worked for a while and then they become unresponsive. I have spent days (not hours) trying to fix them by following Wemo procedures and nothing worked. I have also followed Wemo Community forum and apparently a lot of people are having exactly the same issue and Wemo can't really solve them. I am going to throw these into dustbin. My advice to everyone: Don't buy them.

  • from Prince George, BC

Only good for one location

Very limited. I bought their Mini Outlets (still can't get it to work right as it keeps disconnecting) and Light switches to use in both my office and at home.... :( NOPE they will only work on one network which means I can't use in both places... How dumb is this?! So I had to return all of their product and bought another brand that does work in multiple geographical locations.

  • from Repentigny


Fonctionne tres bien. Ajoutez des fonctionnalités avec IFTTT Tres satisfait

  • from Prince George, BC

Only one location/network

Very limited. I bought their Mini Outlets (still can't get it to work right as it keeps disconnecting) and Light switches to use in both my cabin and at home.... :( NOPE they will only work on one network which means I can't use in both places... How dumb is this?! So I had to return some of their product as I can't use in my home and guess will have to buy from someone else for my home.... dumb dumb dumb.

  • from Vernon, BC

Terrible software and firmware.

Can not set up after 8 hours of wasted time and Review of every Belkin/WEMO trouble shooting site. WIFI drops on the unit itself before, will not complete the set up. Reset this product over 10 times. I have multiple smart items (mostly Tlink) all over the house, this is the one with any issues. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

  • from Toronto, ON

work few months!!! only!!!!!

work only few months. if you buy it, do not change your code wifi, modem, router,...

  • from Mississauga, ON

Great Product

I have four of these setup at my house, I had no trouble at all getting the light switches to sync with my cell phone. Also I use them with Amazons Alexa Assistant and they are a complement to the rest of the automation on the house. I will continue to add more throughout the house.

  • from Richmond bc

Great but no support for different location

I got wemo outlet first. Works great no complaints so decided to get a light switch for another property. Tried to setup for 30 min could not get it work. At the end found out, it doesn't work if you are using devices on different properties or network. So if you already have one or more devices at home with your iPhone wemo app, you can't add another device for your office using the same iPhone due of no support for different network. Hope the company figure out soon as I am returning the switch and try TP-link to see if they have the same problem

  • from Vancouver, BC

Easy to install and setup

Bought two of them a few years ago, never had any problems with the product. Belkin keeps updating it with new firmware and improving the mobile app -- which is good thing! Decided to add one more. You can use it to program when your lights or fan come one automatically... There also a random mode -- great when you're away on vacation so that your house has lived in look.

  • from Mississauga, ON

read the reviews before you purhcase this product

i purchased two of these light switches. installing the electrical was the easy part. I had to ultimately call tech support for their assistance in syncing the switches with my phone. the how to video makes it look seamless. it took them a few mins and of course no issues. Tech support struggled for over 45 mins to get the switches to be set up on my phone. creating rules and changing them is a problem also. supposed to have an option to have the switches turn on/off at sunrise/sunset. tech support could not help me set this up. anytime i change the programmed time for the lights to turn on/off, i have to create a new rule. editing the existing one never works. upgrades never work either. overall, the app is very finnicky and the system is tricky to work with. would not recommend this particular product.

  • from Ottawa, ON

WeMo light switch

An excellent product! I installed three at my house. The only negative point that I would have is that it will not work with all household wiring configurations that are commonly found in a switch box.

  • from Nanaimo, BC

Works well on a single network

I have 4 in total now setup for flood lights and pot lights around my house and shop. A few things I found out while installing these. They all must be on the same network due to the distances for me that meant I have a primary router then two others on bridge mode. This is because the wemo app only lets you access a single network so you can't control lights at two different properties. They do work well once setup. The support from the manufacturer was useless I found my answers using google as they never got back to me.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great product!!

I use this timer to control the lights in my indoor marijuana grow up. Works great, and the setup is a breeze.

  • from Calgary, AB

Great product

Looks great, easy to install and very easy to setup.

  • from Brampton, ON

An excellent Purchase

The center currently uses a combination of WEMO and LiftMaster wireless switches. The LiftMaster switches currently controls a set of lights that are used constantly. The Belkin switches will be used to control the center specialty lights such the chandelier(s), wall sconces etc. The Belkin switches are easy to use, easy to setup and compliments any decor.

WeMo Wi-Fi Light Switch

I bought my first one a year ago and regretted not buying more immediately after installing it. Looks great and easy to install. Nice to be able to turn on exterior lights from the car during the short days in winter.

  • from Montréal, QC

Very useful and versatile product

Easy to install and set up. Easy to program. Being able to program it to turn on at sunset and off at a specific time means never having to re-program as the daylight changes.

  • from North Vancouver, BC

WeMo Lightswitch

I have 3 of these,easy to install if your switchbox has room in it. Work'svery well with my Phone and Alexa Integration was easy.

  • from Saskatoon, SK

Nice Switch

Been using for a month, so far it has been performing very well. Setup was straight forward, no problems there. Rules section was easy to navigate,seems to be quite a bit flexibility for on/off times and days you want controlled. I have it set to come on 45 mins. after sunset, works well and is very accurate, nice feature.

  • from Kelowna, BC

Great product!

Looks great, easy to install and very easy to setup.

  • from Hamilton

Love it!

So awesome. Can turn my lights on with ease even when I'm not at home.

  • from Etobicoke, ON

Great switch

Easy to install, takes up the same amount of space in the box as a dimmer switch. I had the switch in the box and installed in 10 minutes. the initial setup with my Iphone took 5 minutes. easy to program on off functions. i used it for my outdoor lights and set the program for the lights to come on at dusk and turn off at 3am very simple, and it knows your time zone so it will auto adjust as the sunsets, so basically set it and forget it. Highly recommend it.

  • from Brampton, ON

Little bulky but excellent product

I have installed few of these in my house. Excellent product to control your household light of fans remotely or to automate them to turn them on/off as per schedule. Easy to configure and reconfigure. App is easy to use and setup scheduling rules. Now I don't have to worry about turning off the shower exhaust fan 40-60 minutes after I am done shower. The rule setup in the box takes care of it. No more electricity wastage if you forget to switch off the exhaust fan if you are leaving in a hurry. I can turn the light on/off from anywhere in the world. Only con of the switch is that it is bulky for a single switch box. It can not fit in that. It can be installed easily in a box meant for 2 or more switches.

  • from Calgary, AB

Super Handy

So far I've enjoyed using the switch, please be sure though before you install it that you have enough room for it in your switch box. The thumbnail picture of the switch neglects to really show you the back and how big it is. Other than that it's awesome to be able to set up rules for your lights and be able to integrate some IFTTT functionality in with geofences.

  • from Uxbridge, ON

Works as advertised - almost from the start

Bought two of these from on-line BestBuy.ca last Thursday, April 14th and received them via Canada Post the very next day. Physical installation was easy (I did have a neutral (white) wire in the electrical box). It doesn't have to be a single box either - mine had another decora-style switch beside it and everything went well. You do need a deep box though. I had no difficulty for the router to see it either (ASUS RT-AC5300). Got 'the app' from the Google store and downloaded it in a few moments. Ran the app and could 'see' the light Belkin lights witch. Tried it and while it took a few moments to find the switch, it worked well excepting that when the switch was toggled, the app hung - whether turning if on or turning it off. While in the middle of trying to solve this issue (of it working but ending badly for the app), got notification of a new update. Ran it and the trouble just went away. It now works well with no apparent problems. I really like it and it solved a difficult switching problem for me. It looks great alongside similar white decora switches and it works great too.

  • from Surrey, BC

Great switch

Great switch,easy install although you need a deep enough box for installation to fit all wires and large switch . Should measure width and depth of old switch box before buying. Can't be used on dual control or dimmer switch setups ,but hopefully that comes in future. Easy setup on android phone and works well on timer and manual remote switching. Appearance is also good. Have used it for 1 month now with no issues except for an update that needed to be done on install. Customer service was great on guiding through update. Bought this one through Best Buy with no issues. Shipment was fast.

  • from Medicine Hat, AB

Great product! Love showing it off!

Bought 2 of these when they were on sale after Boxing Day . I had no problem getting them to work and love using the sunset & sunrise feature. Would definitely recommend!

  • from Hamilton, ON

Works Well

I've had these for quite some time now. Infant, I have several now. They work quite well. They provide many use options from timed to manual use. They are particular convenient where 2 switches operating a single light are difficult to wire. Set up is fairly simple. My one conplaint is that sometimes the response time isn't quite as quick as I would like. That said, the latest software update seemed to remedy much of that.

  • from Maple, ON

Good, but could be better....

The product functions exactly how you would expect it to, but I purchased one to control my exterior lights at my HOME, and one to control my exterior lights at my COTTAGE, only to find out you CANNOT control 2 separate light switches at 2 separate addresses off of 1 app on 1 phone - For example, this type of setup would require you to have your HOME light switch on one device (your phone) and the COTTAGE switch on a separate device (your iPad, or another phone).

  • from Oakville Ontario

We now have 3

So far our experience has been positive, it is great to be able to control the lights remotely it is better than the old fashioned timers easier to change the scedhule within the app. We just bought another one, it would be nice to see the 3 way switch option in the future

Belkin WEMO light switch

This switch is installed in the same manner as any standard single-pole switch. I also have the Belkin netcam so was expecting to use the same app. That caused me a bit of fiddling before I realized that there are separate 'netcam' and 'wemo' apps. The connection with the wemo app went smoothly and 3 weeks in I have yet to experience even a glitch. I was thinking that it would be nice to have one app for both the netcam and other wemo devices since they use the same protocol. Then to my pleasant surprise after a week or so the netcam suddenly appeared on the wemo app. My phone now has the 'netcam' app initially installed when purchasing the camera and the 'wemo' app with which I can monitor both devices. I would still need the 'netcam' app in the event that connections need to be reconfigured.

Belkin WeMo Wi-Fi Light Switch

Belkin WeMo Wi-Fi Light Switch are much more economical than buying the single plug in units or lightbulbs. You also don't need a hub control them you simply just added an app to your iPhone and is very easy to use. Con: It does not work on 3way switches.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Not intuititve to use. Died after one year

Light switch will only register to one mobile device, and if you want to register it to a new smartphone or tablet, you need to completely reset the light switch. Furthermore my switch completely died shortly after the warranty ran out. It also does not integrate with other systems like wink hub. No dimming function either. Better of getting something else.

  • from Saskatoon, SK


Works very nice. Sunset lights turn on. Sunrise lights turn off. Never have to set a timer again.

  • from Moncton, NB

Works as designed

Bought two of these guys to use in various places around the house. Turns out my house doesn't have many boxes with neutral wires in them which are required for this switch to work. Luckily, my front porch did. Install the switch, used the Wemo app to set it up and everything worked flawless. The rules for setting the switch off/on aren't really any different than my home security system. Quite easy once you get used to them.

  • from Whitby, ON

Who needs timers

Who needs timers when there's a product like this available. Was looking for a timer for the outside lights and came across this device. Very impressed. Can set to come on at sunset and shut down anytime you want including sunrise. Set up is easy for those technically inclined. May need a bit of internet help otherwise. Been operating for about 5 months now with no problems. Device continues normally without any input after power failure. Highly recommend.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great .Switch, But!

Easy to install. but took a while to connect it to internet.Once it was set up the challenge was to understand the rules. The instructions are not very clear,I did not realize some rules turn on and off while others only turn on or off. I lost my internet & got another router. I gave it a new SSID and could not get switch to work so switched back to original name. I never could connect to the switch network, but with old SSID and password the switch was visible to WeMo app. Help says we can reset switch but I found no way to do that. One day the App lost connection to the switch. It ended up working After I switched circuit breaker on & off This has great potential but there are still a few bugs to work out. I have upgraded switch firmware a few times since so perhaps some problems are fixed.I am still not able to connect to the switch network but my lights are working according to my rules.

  • from TOronto

works greast so far

Install was very easy. works great. Love the sunset feature where it will automatically determine sunset/sunrise times from where you live to turn off/on. Only 4 stars for now as don't know how reliable it is yet. PS woks only with 1 pole switch, can use a 3 way switch but need to disable the other switch.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Works well but setup could use better instructions

Purchased this on Saturday, installed it in 15 mins no problems. Issue started when I tried to get it on my network, it would not take the password even if I removed security. It kept saying to check my password on the router.. well it turns out that this device will not accept an SSID that has more then 1 capital so i changed my SSID to all lowercase and it worked just fine. I'm still testing the rules for turning off and on and has works ok so far.

  • from Calgary, AB

Great Security Tool

Friends of ours had their house broken in to the other night via the garage when a thief got access to the garage door opener from an unlocked vehicle. Our garage door opener has a power over-ride switch, where you can shut down the power to the opener. Sure, "locking" the garage door like this when you leave on holidays is easy, but doing that every night isn't likely to keep on happening. This switch and the settings in the iPhone app make powering down your garage door opener overnight automatic. Nice tool, great form factor and a breeze to install and configure the iPhone app. No other hardware is required, no base station, no extra wiring or settings on my WiFi router. It just works, which is a nice change to how so many technologies seem to work.

  • from toronto

good product, bad app

I like the switches, good replacements for the old timers. Terrible app, almost unusable. Found WemoManager on google play which saved the switches going back to bb. Instant on and off - just like real switches! And rules that actually work.

  • from Cambridge, ON

Great Product

I have had mine for well over a year now, when I first got it the app was not so great and it would disappear from app, over time the app was improved greatly. Now the app works flawless and instantly and have not had any problems. I will be purchasing more of these as I like the option of setting them to come on and ff when you want them too, and you can check on your lights when you are away.

  • from Brossard, QC

Works great. Android wemo app version not so good.

The switch does the job well, lights up and down manually or through the phone app (in my case am using the Android version APP). WiFi reception signal is good and WiFi AP can be on a different floor, without any issue (in my case it is an ASUS 8 antenna router). Switch works with IFTTT or native wemo app allows basic schedule actions. Android app interface requires work though. Takes around 10 seconds to load the pre-configured switch and for you to be allowed action, which is much when you want light quite away. A 3 seconds load time would be acceptable. But it allows you to remote control the switches locally through your WiFi AP, or through the Internet, far far away from a distant galaxy (as long as you have Internet there). WEMO is now part of the SMART THINGS collective, where you can use the SMART Thing hub for central control. I more than 5 of those switches from WEMO "Light", "Insight" and "switch" (those are three different models here).

  • from Toronto, ON

Great product

Simple to install and works. Does not work for two way light switches. You set separate rules for enabling or disabling the switch. Also allows for location based timing for on-off functionality. Have had no problems with app either.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great but hope next gen us dimmable

Works as expected. love the ability to turn on and off light switches from the phone app or on a timer. I have 4 of these products installed

  • from Kitchener, ON

Awesome product!

I bought this light switch and it works really well. Installation was easy enough but I can see how someone without any electrical knowledge can get frustrated really fast. I will be buying more of these to automate as much of the house as possible. The wifi range was never an issue. My router is in the basement and the light switch is one floor up.
