Belkin, creator of people-inspired technology products, today announced availability of the WeMo Light Switch, bringing a new layer of innovation to the simple, ingenious WeMo smart home platform. The Light Switch is a Wi-Fi connected light switch that allows users to remotely access and manage an entire bank of household lights from anywhere using the WeMo app.
The WeMo Light Switch brings the simplicity, affordability and approachability of WeMo to a remote lighting control market that can sometimes be daunting to consumers, said Ohad Zeira, director of product management at Belkin. “The Light Switch was the most requested new product by loyal WeMo users, and we are happy to offer another product that delivers the peace of mind that comes from knowing you can control and monitor your home from wherever you are, whenever you want.
The WeMo Light Switch is easily connected into a home’s existing electrical wiring, replacing a current light switch. Once in place and connected to the home’s Wi-Fi network, users can access the free WeMo app to turn lights on or off, put them on a schedule, and even time them according to the sunrise and sunset from anywhere using an iOS or Android 4 device. The Light Switch also features integration with IFTTT, an online service that creates triggers using different Internet-based services such as email, weather and social media.
