The Belkin WeMo Switch is a modular, Wi-Fi based product that allow you to
control your electrical appliances from anywhere in the world via your iPhone or iPad.
A lamp, a fan, hair straightness, a stereo...you name it - if you can plug it in, you can control it with
The WeMo Switch!
You can instantly turn your electronic devices on/off or even put them on
their own timed schedule, all via the WeMo App, no matter where you are. Think
you left the iron on? No problem, just load up the app and switch it off!
The WeMo Switch Motion adds a sensor that detects motion within 3 metres
and will turn on or off anything plugged into the switch when activated
- meaning you could place a the motion sensor by a door to activate an interior
light whenever someone approaches it.
Moreover, one Switch Motion can be used to trigger multiple switches at
once, should you want to set up a rule within the app to do so.
WeMo also features integration with IFTTT (if this then that), an online service that allows you to create tasks combining different internet-based services from one platform. Through the WeMo channel on IFTTT, you can use a WeMo Switch or Switch Motion to trigger a variety of services, including email, SMS, Twitter, Facebook, etc. For example, you can set up a motion sensor by your front door and use IFTTT to create a rule that will send a text message to your phone anytime motion is sensed - handy if you want to track someone coming back for curfew...or
to track unexpected guests!?!
Works with existing WiFi router and any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 5 or later.
