WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A POWER OUTAGE ? IS WEMO RELIABLE WHEN YOU HAVE IT AT YOUR VACATION HOME ?

by rsharma56 on ‎08-17-2016 12:26 PM

I had a power outage at my vacation home, and I can not controll the lights any more and my neighbour informed me that my lights have been turned on continously for the last 3 days. How can I resolve the problem and get them to turn off ? Or do I have to go on a vacation to turn them off ?

That won't work with a wemo for the reasons mentioned earlier in this discussion.  You'd be better off spending 1/5th the money on a manual timer as it would be infinitely more reliable.

When anpower outage takes places , all wemo devices go crazy and lose their effectiveness they are no longer reliable or become useless. Walmart carries smart plugs for $14.99 half the price of costly crappy wemo devices

amiguito:  What router are you using?  I utilize Asus models and don't see that behavior at two locations when power outages occur.
