I tried to ask this question to Belkin Support, but they don't seem very keen on actually offering support & I got stuck in an endless ring of unhelpful FAQs. I'm hoping someone here might be able to help.
i have a home wifi network with a guest network that is created by a second router that is connected via Ethernet to my first router. Tomorrow I am receiving a a WeMo Insight Plug. I would like two things:
1) to be able to prevent people on the local guest network using the WeMo Switch.
2) to prevent people people on the global network from accessing the switch (other than me)
i am guessing the switch connects to Belkin Servers and they have some security to prevent random global access?
Locally I am much less certain; is the Belkin WeMo switch connected only to a password protected WeMo Account?
Or maybe I can use the main router to give the device a static home IP address and change the settings of the guest router to block local traffic to the device? The WeMo device will be connected to my personal network.
