Mine have been going fine for several years. They control cabinet lights, christmas lights and similar.
It is a plug - wires, plastic and metal.
I have more than one, and I like them. Easy to program, and consistent.

Reliable wireless utility lamp control.
Have several of these Wemo plug-in device to set lighting in house for safety purposes as well as not needing to move about a darkened home!
Devices give home a lived in street appearance and I use variable activation timing for each room there used.
Ive owned for quite some time now and am
more than satisfied with performance. People that may have perceived difficulties are likely not following directions for these devices. You need good 2.4Ghz wireless connection to set up! You may need additional Wi-Fi repeater depending on the strength or lack there of of your primary wireless router.
Very rarely do these Wemo plugs fail. If this happens…unplug for 10 seconds and plug in again to re-establish connection. If this does not work simply factory reset and then
set-up plug-in device again. Have patience and you will be successful! Also, always setup with your phone or iPad device using a 2.4Ghz network, not ever a 5Ghz network.
Wemo products fit perfectly in Apples iOS ecosystem…not intended for Amazon Alexa.

Sketchy HomeKit WiFi setup...
Short story, you need the manual WEMO factory reset instructions which include holding the power button down for several seconds while plugging in the WSP080 device. Once you get back to ground zero you can attach to the device hotspot and configure the home LAN WiFi settings.
in my case, I ended up reconfiguring a 2GHz WiFi connection with the WEMO app, but you should be able to simply add the device to your home LAN with the Apple Home app. I have two homes and 5GHz WiFi was probably configured by the Apple Home app which fails with these 2GHz only devices. Both the Apple Home app and the WEMO app cache up WiFi settings and there is no way to see which WiFi settings are being used.
Stranger yet I had the outlet working and then when I moved it into a hard to reach location of my attic it went into a setup mode that had a partial configuration that listed the outlet as ‘setup and configure device’ under the available WiFi hotspots. When factory reset the outlet presented as a normal hotspot and once connected to the device hotspot it allowed me to configure the WiFi. This WSP080 appears to be WiFi only without any NFC or bluetooth to fall back to for configuration of the WiFi.
This WiFi device should be more reliable than my failed X10 module. The WEMO app provides remote access for where I do not have a local HomeKit hub [AppleTV]. The WEMO app is required for firmware updates, which might be required if Apple updates HomeKit.
The ‘Thread’ version of this plug may simplify the ‘HomeKit’ install, but that version does not function with the WEMO application, which might be a good thing.06/10/2022Verified Purchase
Conflicts & Confusion: Wemo Cloud, iCloud, and Amazon Echo
I have been a Wemo user since 2015.
Last week on the 4th, my home experienced a brief power outage. At the time, I was using 5 devices (2 Insights and 3 Mini Smart plugs). When power was restored, the 2 Insights were “Not detected” by the Wemo app and also in the Amazon Alexa app. The Insights appeared to be connected to my WiFi. I unplugged them for a few hours, when I plugged them in again they connected to the network but were not detected in the app.
Prior to the outage, I had deleted a rule and modified another one. After the outage, I also added a new rule. For the next few days, I experienced issues with the changes not being subsequently reflected in the app and also not being used to control the devices.
I installed the app on an Amazon Fire tablet. Once I logged into the app, it showed the rules that I want. So, at this point, the correct rules are showing on the Fire but none of my iOS devices.
After a few days of hoping the “Not detected” devices would reappear, I gave up and ordered a new plug from Amazon. I received the “Simple Setup Smart Outlet” yesterday. It arrived with minimal instructions. First, I attempted to follow the path for “Auto setup with Alexa”. That process failed repeatedly. So, I then installed Apple Home app and was able to get the device configured. I then created the rule that I wanted to associate with the new device using the iOS app.
However, the previous problem with rules persisted. I uninstalled the Apple Home app and the rule inconsistency problem persisted. I remember seeing a message that rules would remain in iCloud after uninstalling the Apple Home app. Even though, the app was gone, the iCloud Home setting was still on. I turned the setting off on all iOS devices. Since then, everything seems okay.
I noticed that “Apple HomeKit” shows in the description for the Wemo that I bought in 2018. I may have installed Apple Home then and decided that I did not want to use and uninstalled. I wonder if that could have caused a one-way pull of Wemo data to iCloud. And, after that the iOS app and the plugs were pulling data from iCloud instead of directly from Wemo’s cloud storage (though it looks like they were all being properly stored in Wemo’s cloud). This would account for the phantom rules.
After spending a few hours doing “Simple Setup”, the appearance in the app across iOS and Fire devices is as desired, devices show correctly in Alexa, and the correct programs are controlling the plugs.05/15/2022Verified Purchase
