I had some trouble in this Wemo mini smart plug review and setup video. (You can find them on amazon, click here: http://amzn.to/2sP62dt) I believe most of my issues came from the Wemo app. The darned thing just didn't seem to cooperate at every turn of this process. I had the Wemo mini plugged in and followed all the on screen instructions. But in the initial steps I couldn't connect the Wemo smart plug to the app. So I tried twice and gave up and then BAM, the mini smart plug appeared on my phone. I had the same sort of issue connecting my Wemo to Alexa smart home devices (i.e. my echo dot in this video). The app would say it couldn't connect. Then I'd just try again and it would work. I would like to hang these issues on the Wemo app and hope this isn't indicative of its performance entirely. Only time will tell. If you want an alternative to the Wemo Mini wifi smart plug, there are also the TP-Link smart plug minis (http://amzn.to/2sKPpzO), which i have also done a video on here...

The Wemo Mini WiFi Smart Plug review provides information on the features and benefits of the Wemo Mini. There is a link in the video to the complete setup and installation using the Wemo app to connect to your home wifi network. Are the improvements of the Wemo Mini WiFi Smart Plug enough to make you replace your Wemo Switch? That's what we're here to find out. The Wemo Mini WiFi Smart Plug lets you control your electronic devices right from your phone or tablet. The Smart Plug uses your existing home Wi-Fi network to provide wireless control of lamps, heaters, fans, and more. Simply plug the Wemo Mini into an electrical outlet, plug a device into the Smart Plug, and control your device using the free Wemo app. The Wemo Mini replaces the Wemo Switch. As you can see there is a considerable difference in the size of these two devices. The Wemo Switch covered two outlets when placed in the bottom outlet. With the WEMO Mini you can place it in either outlet and you'll have ample space to use the open outlet as well. Now you can add an additional Wemo Mini or plug in another device in the open outlet. Besides the size, the only other difference between the Switch and the Mini is the placement of the power button, LED, and branding. You can still setup schedules, or randomize your devices to turn on and off at different times to make it appear like you’re home when you’re not. You can still connect it to your Nest products to automatically turn your devices on or off based on you're location. The Wemo Mini still works with Amazon Echo which gives you voice command over your devices. The Wemo Mini is still IFTTT compatible so you can setup applets which allow you to turn on whatever is plugged into your Wemo Mini based on real-world events and more. The setup in the app is the same for both devices. If you'd like a step by step walk through of the setup check out our original Wemo Switch video. If you already have a Wemo switch I wouldn't say you need to run out and replace it with a Wemo Mini. They both do the exact same thing but the form factor is different. If you were choosing between the two I'd definitely cop the Wemo Mini because it allows you to access both outlets and you can stack multiple devices into the same wall socket.

This video shows simple setup and basic usage of the product, while evaluating some smart home solutions.
Some Video notes:
The video shows basic setup of a Wemo Mini.
During setup, the Wemo connected to one network while the Phone (and Wemo App) connected to another network. So, the Wemo started showing an image of a Wemo Switch and it was taking 2-3 seconds to control the Switch (instead of instantaneous). I think I see this kinda slower response times when I am connected to a network and the app things that is is not the local network. So, to recover, just kill the app and launch it on the same network as the Wemo and Disable Remote Access - this seem fix the issue. However, if you are someone who uses the App via remote, make sure you enable it again.
1. Anytime the Wemo disconnects from the Router, it should blink Orange LED on the Wemo hardware. In this case, reboot the Wemo and check if it connects back. If it happens again, it could be some settings on the router the Wemo doesn't like (like the Channel setting or the distance from the Wemo). Changing it could fix the issue.
2. If it is not blinking then the network is fine and it could be the app that is stuck in some weird state. Connect the app and launch it on the same network as the Wemo and Disable Remote Access. Go back to Devices tab and check if this fixes the issue.
3. In most cases, it is the #2 above that caused an issue. I figured this out when I checked my 'Network' section of Windows PC and noticed that the Wemo was available. Even a ping to the Wemo's IP proved that it was available, although the Wemo App doesn't show it.
