Home Automation has started to become a pretty big market. You have companies like Philips and Belkin leading the way with all sorts of home automation products. From smart light bulbs to smart appliances and even smart switches. Allowing you to control everything straight from your smartphone or tablet. Whether you are at home or not.
The latest is this WeMo Switch. Basically, what this is, is a wall outlet that connects to your smartphone (Android 4.1 or higher and iOS 7 and higher) via WiFi. Allowing you to turn off the switch or turn it on. And thus turning on/off the product that is plugged into it. Very useful for having a lamp plugged into the switch, as you can easily turn it off without having to touch the light switch. Best of all, it is compatible with the Amazon Echo. So yo are able to give Alexa commands to turn off whatever is plugged into this switch, and have it done with your voice. How much cooler can it get? Right now, Amazon is selling the WeMo Switch for just $39.99. Typically this would cost around $49.99, making it a pretty decent deal for the WeMo Switch, from Belkin.
