That motion sensor probably pulls power from the plug. Detaching it means having to deal with batteries, which fail…

Absolutely agree, Craig. I just wish they could put the motion sensor into a plug, sort of like the Switch. It just looks funky. No biggie.

I have several of these in my home and I absolutely love them. I use them to turn lights on in my home while I am on my way home late from work. I also have used them for fans and other household items. If you own these you also need to download the IFTTT app ( If This Then That ). You can create specific rules for your wemo switches to follow. For instance I have one attached to my weather app that if the temp rises above 73 degrees the fan will kick on. I also have my light turn on for ESPN score notifications. There are so many recipes created and generated by users for you to use as well. I absolutely love these switches.

@Jason, great suggestion. IFTTT also works with Philips Hue lights
