Belkin WeMo In­sight Switch

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -


THE BELKIN WEMO Switch is avail­able in two mod­els — the plain switch and the In­sight, with power mon­i­tor­ing. Shop­ping around on­line both mod­els are avail­able from about $60, so the In­sight is the best choice. The WeMo switch con­nects to your ex­ist­ing Wi-Fi, and does not need a sep­a­rate hub. Ap­pli­ance power can be con­trolled man­u­ally via the WeMo app, or be set up to re­spond au­to­mat­i­cally to a sched­ule. You can also set up a ran­domised mode for plug in lamps, to give the im­pres­sion some­one is home when you’re, in fact, away on hol­i­day. The unit also has a power but­ton on it for off­line con­trol. Through the app, the WeMo can mea­sure and record power use, and can be in­te­grated with other WeMo prod­ucts or with ser­vices such as IFTTT and Google Home. The WeMo app is avail­able for An­droid, iOS and even Kin­dle, for con­trol from any de­vice. The WeMo Switch is easy to get set up and con­nect to, and works via a mo­bile con­nec­tion when away from home.
