Hi, I'm Megan Wollerton for CNET and this is the Belkin WeMo LightSwitch.
Today, I'm gonna show you to how to install it and get it set up in your home.
First things first safety.
Make sure you go to your circuit breaker and flip off the electricity to this switch.
Now, you're ready to install your Belkin WeMo LightSwitch.
The box is really simple.
It comes with 4 wire connectors,
the switch itself and the faceplates just right here.
That's all you're really gonna need, which is great.
As for supplies you'll need on hand, make sure that you have pliers to make the wire straight, a screwdriver and a voltage tester.
Also before you get started, you're gonna wanna make sure that you had a neutral wire.
In my case, it's the white wire here.
They're not always white, but you got to make sure you have it or you can install in this switch.
Now, you're ready to get started.
Start with one of the switch wires that's a black wire here
and paired it up to another one of the black wires in your wall mount.
Take a wire connector and screw it on.
To make sure it's connected, just tug on the wires, then you did the same thing with the other black wire.
The last step is to pair up your neutral wire.
And that's really it for the wiring part.
This green wire here is the ground wire and it's an optional wire.
For me, the hardest part of this installation was getting all of the wires back inside the wall so that I could fit the LightSwitch.
Here it goes.
Once your wires are inside, you can use your screwdriver
to screw it into the wall.
The last step is just to pop this on top of the LightSwitch.
