This year, Belkin has updated a couple of its WeMo smart home products to take advantage of Apple's new software authentication parameters for HomeKit. This means that some WeMo products can be added to a HomeKit setup without the need for an additional hub. Other WeMo products can still be used with HomeKit if you have the WeMo Bridge.
