What can WeMo do?


Best Review 9028

Almost anything. WeMo can make your house a more convenient, easy place to be. When you return home, your lights are on. Leave the room, and the TV turns off. Turn off a light downstairs after you've already turned in.

Put your house on a schedule—bedroom and living room lights go on in the evening, the kids' playroom gadgets go off at bedtime.

With WeMo you run your home right from your iPhone or your Android phone. The free WeMo app lets you control individual or multiple devices. Turn off a lamp from the other side of the house. Turn on the lights in the living room, from the other side of town.

Schedules are easy to set up too—have a heater or a fan turn on a half hour before you get home to make the temperature just right. With WeMo, it's all up to you.

WeMo Switch


Best ads 2

If it plugs in, you can turn it on or off with WeMo. Just plug your lamp, or fan, or stereo (almost anything) into the WeMo Switch, and you're ready to control it with the WeMo app. And WeMo is completely modular. With multiple WeMo Switches, you can control as much or as little of your home as you like.

WeMo Switch + Motion

A great way to use the WeMo Switch is to trigger it with motion. Just place the WeMo Motion sensor wherever you like, connect it to a WeMo Switch controlling a light, and that light goes on whenever you pass by. With WeMo Motion, appliances wake up and perform their tasks when you get near them, and go to sleep when you leave. Just like they should!

WeMo and the Web.

WeMo is just a great idea–giving you everything you need to make your house a more comfortable place right now.

And WeMo is growing every day. For example, WeMo can interact with web-based social media and apps through a great service called IFTTT (If This Then That). So when the sensor at your front door is triggered, you get an email. Or when the sun sets, your hallway lamp goes on. Very cool.

It's so easy.

As ingenious as WeMo is, it's incredibly easy and intuitive. Your WeMo Switches and WeMo Motion connect right through your home Wi-Fi Network.

You just download the free WeMo app, and you're off and running—it's simple, clear and fun to use. With the WeMo app you tell your Switches and Motion Sensors what to do, and when to do it. You can name every item you're controlling with WeMo, even take its picture and have that appear next to its name.
WeMo is your home at your fingertips.

IFTTT connects your home to the web

IFTTT is an amazing new service that puts the internet to work for you. IFTTT lets you create 'Recipes' that connect apps, websites, and devices together to perform all kinds of custom tasks for you.

Now that WeMo can join in the fun, you can connect your house to the world in useful and very cool ways. What ways? It's totally up to you.

For example, you could have a light go on in your front hallway when the sun goes down. Simply use the IFTTT Weather Channel (or any site you like), and when it says the sun has set, have WeMo spring into action.

Using IFTTT with WeMo

IFTTT stands for "If This Then That." And that's just how easy it is. It allows WeMo to react to something (anything!) changing on a Website–the weather, a sports score, you name it.

Using IFTTT is really simple and intuitive. And what you can do with it is completely amazing.

WeMo talks back

As well as listening to the Web through IFTTT, WeMo can talk back, triggering events with online services like Facebook, Evernote, SMS, Google Calendar and many more.

This means that you can set up WeMo Motion to send you a text alert when someone enters the house. You could set it next to the cookie jar, and send yourself an email reminding you to eat an apple instead!
