DUBAI, UAE – December 11th, 2012 – The UAE digital revolution is in full-swing and most festive ‘wish-lists’ this year will have at least one cutting edge gadget on it. With that in mind, Belkin introduces the WeMo, the perfect gift for gadget and tech lovers.
Belkin WeMo is a family of simple, ingenious products that allow you to control home electronics from anywhere. Turn them on or off, trigger them with motion, or even put them on a schedule. WeMo lives on your smartphone and uses your home WiFi and mobile internet. Setting it up and using it is a snap. WeMo truly is your home at your fingertips.
The WeMo App
With WeMo you run your home right from your iPhone. 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 half an hour before you get home to make the temperature just right. With WeMo, the power is in your hands! Even better, you’ll save time, and save money by conserving energy.
The Belkin WeMo Switch, the iPhone Home Remote, works with the (free) WeMo app so you can turn electronics on or off from anywhere. A lamp, a fan, a heater, curling iron, coffee-machine, you name it. If you can plug it in, you can control it with WeMo. WeMo is completely modular, allowing you to control as much or as little of your home as you like.
WeMo Motion Sensor + Home Control Switch
The WeMo motion sensor detects and can react to movement, and devices plugged into the Home Control Switch.
Belkin WeMo and the Web
Belkin has joined forces with IFTTT (If This Then That), a website that puts the internet to work for you!
