Belkins Wemo Home Automation system allows iOS users to control Wemo connected wall-outlets from a distance away. When purchased you will find a Wi-fi enabled wall adapter with one open plug. If you purchase the bundle, you will also receive a motion-enabled sensor. These products will work with the iOS-powered application.
Turn Your Electronics On or Off from Anywhere
The Belkin WeMo Switch works with the free WeMo app to give you wireless control of your home appliances and electronics. Whether you want to turn on a light from your kitchen, front yard, or office, WeMo Switch has you covered.
To get started, simply download the free WeMo app from the Apple app store to your iPhone or iPad. Next, plug the WeMo Switch into an outlet in your home and plug any device or appliance into the switch. Connect the switch to your home Wi-Fi network and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation. Now you can turn your home electronics/appliances on or off from anywhere.
The switch also operates over mobile Internet, which means you can control home devices from anywhere you have an Internet connection.
Set Schedules with WeMo App
The free WeMo app makes it easy to set schedules for appliances and electronics in your home. Use your iPhone or iPad to program a lamp to turn on or off at a certain time of day.
Modular System Allows For Multiple Configurations
WeMo is completely modular, allowing you to control as much or as little of your home as you like. You can add multiple switches to your home and turn them all on at once or program each one to turn on or off at certain times.
WeMo Motion Turns Electronic Devices On/Off
The WeMo Switch and WeMo Motion Kit makes it easy to set schedules for home appliances and electronics and turn devices on and off remotely. The sensor detects movement up to 10 feet away and wirelessly signals the WeMo Switch to turn the connected device on or off, depending on your preference. The sensor’s 6-foot cord lets you place it in the optimal position.
To get started, simply plug the sensor’s A/C module into an outlet in your home and position the sensor. Next, plug the WeMo Switch into a separate outlet, and plug a device like a heater, fan, lamp, or stereo into the switch.
The Belkin Wemo is a great product. The ability to control plugs without even getting out of your seat is amazing. It may factor into laziness, but just imagine being able to turn on a light at your house from a remote location, such as a vacation. It could come to great use, putting possible burglars off-track.
