Promising, but set-up and WiFi reliability let it down ‘Promising’ would be the best word to describe the WeMo Switch. Unfortunately it falls short. The set-up is very finicky, often losing track of the WiFi network I’ve told it to join — even when right next to the base station. Hit join, fail; hit join, fail; hit join, fail. Hey it worked. Immediately it asks for a firmware update. Which kills the unit. So I repeat the whole process again. It’s now been over an hour of mucking around with the WeMo. On my 3rd attempt, the unit stayed online, but I have not unplugged it to see if it will survive a power down. I’m not hopeful.Belkin:1) Fix the app. It crashed on me several times. (Latest IOS7, iPhone 5s)2) Fix the firmware upgrade process to not break your settings3) Find out why your WiFi is so unreliable and fix it4) Polish the set-up process. This was possibly the worst WiFi device set-up I’ve been through. Would a micro USB port be too much to ask for? Bouncing back and forth…
