The world according to Belkin

STEPHEN B, Apple
15 June 2014
  • Summary: Just received this WeMo switch and have tried to set it up. ...BUT it will not connect to a network where the WPA pass phrase contains spaces. You get an error advising you of this. Come on Belkin, you really have to be kidding me. I teach Grade 6 students who learn that adding spaces to a pass phrase is good practise because it increases the password permutations and therefore reduces vulnerability to hacking.

Simply does not work

Niklas A, Apple
17 October 2013
  • Summary: TRied 2 devices now, it just doesn't connect to tour wifi network, and I'm using a state of the art latest Apple time capsule router. All Belkin support is saying, try again. Good luck.

New password restriction renders useless

Andrew W, Apple
5 October 2013
  • Summary: I just had to reset my device, and now find I can no longer connect it to the network it was connected to before for months because, after firmware/app updates, the WeMo app now refuses passwords with spaces in it. I'm not changing the password on all the untold other devices in the house because Belkin's engineers are incompetent, so I guess this gets tossed in the bin.

Wifi drops and switch needs to be manually reset

Paul J, Apple
30 April 2013
  • Summary: Easy set up and worked well initially but every time my Wifi drops the switch has to be manually reset, not much good if I am away from the house. Now I cannot see the switch over the internet, it will only work over the Wifi. Would not recommend or buy another one of these products. Great idea but not working as I had expected and Technical Support poor.
