Belkin WeMo Light Switch F7C030fc Review
Belkin WeMo Light Switch F7C030FC lets you automatically control your home lighting system from anywhere – even remote locations. All you need is an Android or an iOS device on which the control app sits. Windows compatibility is still not available with this switch. The switch is plane looking but is a powerful controlling device. You can install the switch in 5 minutes and use multiple options (with or without using the app) to control it. There is, however, no dimming option available.
Belkin WeMo Light Switch F7C030FC looks like a standard switch but it is a powerful controller for your home lighting system. Once you set it up, it can be used with the switch rocker or through an Android or iOS app. You can automatically control the switch from remote locations through the app. IFTTT (If This Then That) is a fun functionality that allows you to automatically set the switch up basis various triggers and events. It can also use location services for switching on or off.
Is it easy to control?
Belkin WeMo Light Switch F7C030FC is meant for the first-time users of products in this category and the simplicity of its operation resonates this thought from the manufacturer. The installation is simple and shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes. After you have set the switch up and installed the Android or iOS app, you can use the on/off button on the app to control the lights. If location service is enabled in your device, you can automatically set the switch to, say, turn on the lights at sunset and turn them off at sunrise. This switch also has IFTTT (If This Then That) that you can use to create recipes depending on triggers or events. And of course, you can always use the rocker on the switch to operate it.
What is its performance?
Belkin WeMo Light Switch F7C030FC is a performer alright – the installation process is simple and the operating procedures are multi-fold and easy to handle. You can use the rocker on the switch to operate the entire mechanism or use your Android or iOS app to control the switch. The tests on the switch have confirmed that it operates without error when you use the location services and IFTTT. For instance, if you want the light to come on when the temperature exceeds 50° or when your favourite program starts. Operating the switch is a lot of fun because it has no complications.
Conclusion: Should I buy it?
If you are planning to try out home automation for the first time, there is perhaps no better option than Belkin WeMo Light Switch F7C030FC. It comes at a price but there are other similar products that are more expensive. Sadly, this switch doesn’t work with Windows OS and hence, you must have an Android or an iOS device to control it.
