Ease into home automation with Belkin's WeMo Switch + Motion

 

If it has a plug, then Belkin and IFTTT can make it smarter.

The Belkin WeMo Switch + Motion's relatively low price, lack of a subscription fee, and plug-and-play simplicity will appeal to many budding home automators.

IFTTT automations weren't quite as reliable as we'd like, and it was a challenge to find ones that we'd actually use regularly.

The Belkin WeMo Switch + Motion is a fun, wallet-friendly step toward the long-promised home automation revolution.

Review: turn your lights on and off with your iPhone and the Belkin WeMo Switch + Motion

 

WeMo home automation system from Belkin hopes to make switching a light on and off remotely via iPhone as simple as being there.

Brings home automation a step closer; simple and intuitive iOS app; ability to create rules and schedule events; modular system offers room to add more rooms and appliances

Mixed results based on customer reviews and home set-ups; support could be better, particularly information on IFTTT; additional Motion senses are available without paying for the WeMo Switch; cheaper alternatives

Review: Belkin WeMo Switch and Motion

 

Plug a light or an appliance into the WeMo, then pair it your smartphone and switch your electronics on and off without leaving the comfort...

Controlling a light or appliance by simply walking into a room or from hundreds of miles away. Makes you feel a bit like George Jetson. Great extensibility through IFTTT integration. No monthly fees

App navigation can be confusing, particularly when setting up rules. Currently no way to view a timeline of past events
