Belkin has announced today via Twitter that its latest smart home accessory, the Wemo WiFi Smart Plug, is now available for pre-orders. The Wemo WiFi Smart Plug replaces the Wemo Mini and comes with an even smaller form factor that is 45% smaller.
The smaller plug measures just 2.05 inches wide, and 1.81 inches tall, making it the one of the smallest on the market. The small design allows the plug to work without blocking the other receptacle in a standard wall outlet, enabling two of the WiFi Smart Plugs to be used at the same time.
Just like with the previous plug, the latest and greatest supports all of the major smart home platforms, including Apple's HomeKit, Amazon's Alexa, and the Google Assistant. The plug connects directly to home networks via 2.4ghz Wi-Fi without a dedicated hub, leading to a quick plug and play experience. Once connected, the plug works with automations and scenes through HomeKit, and with scheduling and timers through the Wemo app, available on both iOS (opens in new tab) and Android (opens in new tab).
The Wemo WiFi Smart Plug is available for pre-orders now directly from Belkin.com (opens in new tab) for $24.99 each. Pre-orders are listed with an estimated shipping date of July 19th.
The latest Wemo smart plug is 45% smaller than the previous Mini model, making it one of the smallest around. This compact plug works with HomeKit, Alexa, and the Google Assistant.
