Belkin has updated their WeMo home automation apps for iOS and Android with a few new features. Chief among them is a long-press option for their Light Switch, which is recognizable through the popular IFTTT service. There are also new controls to recognize sunrise and sunset, and an away mode which flips the lights on and off randomly to make it look like someone’s home.
WeMo extends beyond just light switches, though; they’ve got a whole family of products that let you make just about any home appliance really, really smart. Motion sensors, wall plugs, light bulbs, and even partnerships for slow cookers and air conditioners make for a truly unified home system. Check out our review of the WeMo Light Switch to get a feeling for how everything works.
