I would like to be able to remotely switch gas central heating boiler in my static caravan. Boiler (max 150w) supply is via 13A plug and socket. There is no router as no fixed phone line. Should WeMo operate through available 3G mobile signal?

What range does this device operate from please? I am thinking of using one in my garage which is about 15metres away from my router, through one brick wall and a wooden walled garage.

Asked by: MikeD
If your garage is on the same Electric Supply, add a Powerline Mains WiFi plug, and you will have full access to your WiFI when your are in the garage, also you can use a LAN cable from the same unit

1. Can it be controlled from dedicated wireless transmitters in addition to smartphone control? 2. Can it respond to an on command followed by a pre-programmed duration (say 30 mins) until it automatically swithes off?

Asked by: Tony
I am sorry but the item in question does not support use in your intended application.

1. The headline says Apple or Android - but the description doesn't mention Android. What gives? 2. Does the app enable you to determine the switch's current status, so as to confirm that it's done what you asked it to? 3. If operating remotely from elsewhere, does your router need to have a static IP address? 4. When you mention "mobile internet" does that include WiFi - or does it have to be 3/4G? 5. It talks about switching "electronic devices" - but it has a 13A socket! How much current can it switch?
Asked by: Roger
1.\tThe item and app are fully Android compatible 2.\tYes the app gives feedback about current status 3.\tNo, this is done via a QR code pairing process so will not need a static IP 4.\tWiFi is fine, as is 3g etc 5.\t1800w max
