Belkin WeMo Light Switches

Belkin has recently introduced a line of WeMo devices that all revolve around connected power and lighting devices within the IoT. Here we review each one and how they are built to interact with each other.

WeMo Switch, Insight and Light Switch

The WeMo Switches are essentially an electrical plug that will fit into any outlet inside your home which you can then plug “dumb” devices into. This smart plug/switch combo will allow you to control these non-IoT devices with service like Amazon Echo, IFTTT and others.

WeMo Maker

The WeMo Maker provides DIYers a way to turn other electronics into smart devices that don’t necessarily have an electrical plug. The Maker is not yet connected with Amazon Echo, but does have built-in connections to IFTTT.

  • This is genius! Great for bigger or two story homes where going around and turning lights off can be a chore. I might actually get this, especially because I am terrible with remembering to turn lights off. Awesome control tool!
