We’ve previously mentioned Belkin’s super simple WeMo home automation system, but back then they only offered outlets and motion sensors. They’ve now bridged the gap with a light switch you can install directly into the wall in order to add WeMo services to the wiring in your home.
While not quite as simple as plugging something into a wall, replacing a light switch is one of the easier electrical projects you can undertake. While you should hire an electrician if you don’t feel qualified to do it yourself, Belkin does provide a simple and thorough tutorial to walk you through the process (see video above). Barring the installation process, the WeMo Light Switch takes just as little time to set up as the original devices. The service now comes with enhanced IFTTT support and an Android app, so you no longer need to own an iDevice to use it.
