What Is A WeMo Light Switch?

When you buy a WeMo light switch, you are purchasing a smart light switch that can be operated by your phone or tablet through the WeMo app. You can even change the brightness and color of your lights from any location on the planet using your smartphone. Once you've connected your WeMo light switch to Wi-Fi, you'll be able to manage it from anywhere on the globe using your smartphone. If you want to turn on or off your lights, you don't even have to be in the same city or country. Along with the power strip and smart plug, the WeMo also contains a motion sensor and a water leak detector.

You can also start the controls by tapping the light switch and selecting "Start Controls."

5: Remotely Control Your Light Switch

You can now control your light switch with your phone or tablet anywhere in the world. The app will show you a live image of your light switch so you know what's happening. You can also set up schedules to have your lights turn on and off at certain times of the day. Tap "Schedule" in the top right corner of your screen. If you switch on your light switch and leave it on, it will turn off automatically after a few minutes.
