I would like to suggest that a toggle option be set for motion, such that detection of motion would turn the switch on, then further detection of motion would turn it off again. This would work well for across a door way for example so lights in a room would turn on when you walked in and off when you walked out, alternatively this would allow you to mount a motion behind a piece of furniture (couch, bed headboard etc.) and then a wave of the hand over this would turn it on, and then another wave would turn it off. This would eliminate the issue of all motion toggling the switch on and off.
This is currently possible via IFTTT but it is often much too slow to respond. For many it may offer a much more efficient method for lighting a room than the on for a certain amount of time settings that the app currently offers.
One thing I'd love to see is a rule whereby I can switch the WeMo on and have it switch off automatically after a set time. The supplied rules don't allow for this. To explain further - An additional rule which has no specific "on" time and can be set to turn "off" after a given interval, say 30 minutes. I do hope you will consider adding this functionality in a future update. Thank you
I was looking at looking at purchasing a Wemo Light switch but noticed that it is only available in vertical form. My light switches run horizontal so there installing a current Wemo light switch would look terrible.. Please bring out a horizontal version of this awesome light switch!!!
I have several WeMo switches and motion sensors and whem i was playing around with them I was very sad to find out that if my A/C is disconnected from power that when using the switch it will not come back on and I was trying to find a solution to this problem when an Idea hit me. Programable IR light. My A/C like many others uses an IR remote control and if I could put an IR emitter on the WeMo app it would allow me not just on/off but full functionality of the A/C. that also led me to realize that would open up the posibility of full control of a TV as well or anything that uses a remote.

WeMo Insight Switch is available for e.g. US, UK and German-style sockets, but not for French-style sockets.
Please implement the product also for French-style sockets. I am particularly interested in getting the product in Czech Republic which uses such sockets, but I guess the big French market will be stronger motivation for this product.
I'm impressed with Wemo's set-up method - using the app to connect the device to the wifi network.
I'd love to be able to see a chart of power consumed and on & off times. Ideally I could download a csv file with all that data for each wemo device. This might be better achieved in a web interface with your wemo servers.
Very clever, and I like where it looks like you're going!
This is pretty neat, but falls just short of awesome. What would really make it a killer app for me would be data collection — if it told you how much power the outlet is drawing so you could chart it and twiddle for maximum efficiency, etc. C'est possible?
