That should not be the case. I've researched about this before buying and got this from Belkin website:
"WeMo uses very little bandwidth on your home network. WeMo will only use your Internet bandwidth when you have Remote Access enabled"
More unusual if you only used the App while you're connected to your wireless network. What device is plugged to your WeMo switch?

My access point tracks all device usage. Since I posted two days ago the plug had used another 200mb down and a over 100 up. It's bascially constantly active. I just rest it and also connected my Insight and Motion to see how they do.

I'm just going by the data usage that my UniFi access point is showing. It does count both internal and external traffic, but I don't think they would be commuicating with each other that much. Especially when I only had one device connected for two weeks. I really think its traffic to belkins server, just seems higher than I would expect. If people are on limited data plans these devices would not be for them. If I get time this weekend I'll set up a machine with Wireshark between my access point and switch and see exactly where all the traffic is going.
So in the two days I've had all three devices connected the plug has used 110M down, 128M up. Insight, 106 down 119up, motion 28.8 down 203 up. I can actually understand the motion using so much more up, I'm guessing it has to report to the server everytime it senses motion.

I suggest that you try to Disable the Remote Access option on your WeMo switches for a day and observe if you get the same usage. WeMo switches only uses data for Remote Access Feature.
