Belkin launches its WeMo Switch and WeMo Motion WiFi-based devices that turn an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch into a remote control for household devices. To work with the free WeMo app, the WeMo allows you to create a scalable, customizable home control system easily.
The WeMo Switch plugs directly into an electrical outlet and serves as the main building block for WeMo. “Once the Switch is connected to the home Wi-Fi network, any device plugged into it can then be turned on or off from anywhere, whether at home or on the go with the WeMo app.” On the other hand, the WeMo Motion is a motion sensor. When used with WeMo Switch, the sensor reads motion within 10 feet and will turn on or off anything plugged into the switch based on motion. The WeMo app allows you to set schedule and rules to turn on or off a device at pre-set times or in certain condition.
Both WeMo devices works with existing WiFi network, and the motion sensor offers a 120-degree motion sensitivity range allow for optimal placement of sensor. The WeMo Switch (F7C027fcAPL) is priced at $49.99 and the WeMo Switch + Motion bundle (F5Z0340fcAPL) is priced at $99.99.
