Wemo now works with Android and iOS Smart Devices
The Belkin Wi-Fi enabled Wemo Switch lets you turn electronic devices on or off from anywhere. The Wemo Switch uses your existing home Wi-Fi network to provide wireless control of TVs, lamps, stereos, heaters, fans and more. Simply download the free Wemo App from the Google Play Store or the Apple App store, 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 smartphone or tablet (running Android 4.1 and later or iOS 8 or higher). You can 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 – over Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G
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 Google Play store or the Apple App store to your smartphone or tablet Next, plug the Wemo Switch into an outlet in your home and plug any device or appliance into the switch. Connect the Wemo 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, 3G or 4G connection.
Do more with the Wemo App
The free Wemo app makes it easy to set schedules for appliances and electronics in your home. Use your smartphone or tablet to program a fan to turn on or off at a certain time of day, at sunrise or sunset all over your existing 3G / 4G / Wi-Fi connection.
It’s a Mod, Mod World
One of the beauties of Wemo is its modularity. Control one lamp or all of them. Dip a toe into smart-home tech, or dive in headfirst. There’s a Wemo for every situation: Light Switches for your porchlight or those swanky recessed ceiling lights in the man-cave. Switches for your plug-in lamps and fans. Insight Switches for devices you want to monitor for energy savings. Control them all from your app, with no hub. Go forth and modulize.
Works with Amazon Alexa
Wemo Switch and Insight Switch work seamlessly with Amazon Echo, Amazon Dot and Amazon Tap to give you hands-free, vocal control over your stuff. Want to turn off the fan? Turn on the floor lamp? Shut off the TV in the kids’ room before their brains melt? When Wemo and Alexa work together, all you have to do is speak your mind. Literally.
Wemo works with Nest Learning Thermostat
Nest’s “home” and “away” modes can tell your Wemo switches what you’re up to. If you’re out, your desk fan turns off so the cat doesn’t lose another inch of its tail. When you return, that fake Tiffany lamp your Grandma left you is burning brightly to welcome you home. And you can adjust basic Thermostat settings without leaving the Wemo app, thus conserving valuable thumb-tapping time.
Works with IFTTT
“If This, Then That” is a free web-based service that lets you do an amazing array of things with your Wemo. Visit IFTTT.com to find “recipes” for making Wemo turn lights on and off based on real-world events, send you push notifications about device activity, or take advantage of your phone’s geo-fencing capabilities to know if you’re home or away. Visit IFTTT and discover all the exciting recipes you can create with Wemo + IFTTT.
