I bought WeMo and will be returning it because it doesn't give you an option to set the initial state or keep the last state of the device. Details: http://community.wemo.com/t5/WEMO...e/idi-p/36

Etekcity doesn't give such an option either from what I understood from comments on Amazon.

what kind of devices are people using switches like this on? just lamps?

i would not spend $25 to monitor how much electricity something is using, so i imagine people are mostly suing these for the on/off feature

I'm just going to use these for lamps or Christmas lights.

If you already have a Hook Smart Hub (bridge), these are a great value. It opens up the ability to use it with just about any platform & IFTTT programming.

I currently have a chunk of their remote control "dumb" outlets with a Hook hub & Echo system and it's incredibly convenient & useful. Going to try the etek smart bulb adapters next.

One potential example is A/V setups. TVs, game consoles, subwoofer amps and so on often consume a small but non-negligible amount of electricity while "off" (really standby). If you add this up over, say, 8 hours a day for a year, it can be a good investment.

Of course, you trade a lot of functionality for this, like auto-updating, instant on, and so forth. Power also isn't purely "wasted" if you're heating the space, though it's doubly so if you're cooling it.

The power monitoring is really more of a novelty thing.

For those who are wondering, they do in fact work with Alexa. I couldn't get the Vesync app to actually work with Alexa, and found that other people were saying the same thing. I was going to return them, but tried one more time and it worked immediately. Low profile and more than enough for my IR heater and some lamps. Just be aware that setup may take a few tries (I've had worse problems with Wemo when it was new).

at $25 that would be quite a few kwh you would have to save to recuperate that cost
