WeMo Switch

  • What does it do?:

    Allows you to turn electronics on or off remotely using your smartphone.

  • What our testers liked:

    Would be useful to switch things on if sockets are difficult to access.

  • What our testers disliked:

    Concern that this system requires a smart phone, few of the group have smartphones. Concern at leaving devices plugged in to live sockets. Not everyone has an internet connection which is required.

  • What is interesting:
  • Gives carers the ability to change TV channels remotely from another location.
  • What our testers said:

    Initial impressions: this products was not appropriate for the group who all had on site support. They imagine that it would be better for someone living alone, but could not identify a specific function.

  • Manufacturer:


  • Approximate cost: £40
