Right now I have a mechanical timer that I have to frequently adjust because of changinging sunset times. The problem is that it's in a bad location and it's difficult reaching the timer. Basically, the adjustment is a PIA.
I'm interested in purchasing ONE WeMo switch (probably the mini) to replace the mechanical timer. That way, I can do the adjustments without knocking over tables and lamps. I have an iPhone-7 and, of course, a WiFi system. I do not have anything to use as a hub and I can't justify the expense of a hub simply to support one switch.
I tried the iDevices switch and, without a hub, the only thing that I could do was basic ON and OFF. I was completely unable to set any automatic functions.
Will the WeMo switch do the job for me? Ideally, I would do a "ON at sunset and OFF at midnight" and then I'd never have to adjust it. However, I can live with basic on/off timing that I'd have to change periodically. Again, remember NO hub!
