What is WeMo? (Video)
Belkin's new WeMo system is home automation made easy. It's completely modular, so you can control as much or as little of your home as you like.
Android App Now Available In The Google Play Store
The Belkin WeMo Switch lets you turn electronic devices on or off from anywhere inside--or outside--your home. The WeMo Switch uses your existing home Wi-Fi network to provide wireless control of TVs, lamps, stereos, and more. Simply download the free WeMo app, plug the switch into an outlet in your home, and plug any device into the switch. You'll be able to turn that device on or off using your iPhone or iPad. You can even set schedules for your devices and control them remotely using a mobile Internet connection. You can also add additional switches to your home to control more devices.
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 Belkin 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 Belkin WeMo 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 belkin 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
This Belkin WeMo switch 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.
Belkin also offers the WeMo Switch and WeMo Motion Kit (sold separately) which includes a motion sensor and allows you to use the WeMo app to program a hallway light to turn on when movement is detected.
Warranty and Compatibility
The Belkin WeMo Switch is compatible with Apple devices (iOS 5 and higher) and your existing Wi-Fi router. It is backed by a one-year limited warranty.
Write a review for: Belkin WeMo Switch
The description on the BTShop website says this will work anywhere with an internet connection but it won't work on GPRS as it needs 3G or 4G! so its useless where I live. The website also does not mention that the Android App does not support versions prior to V4! I am sure this is a useful product if you happen to have 3/4G and the very latest phone but if you don't its not much use.
