Belkin adds a remote-control WiFi light switch to its home automation products

Belkin has expanded its WeMo home automation range with a couple of announcements at CES 2013. Not only is it adding Android compatibility to what was previously an iOS-only app, it’s also introducing new devices.

Alongside the remote-control mains socket and motion sensor is a WiFi-enabled WeMo Light Switch that replaces an existing switch and can be controlled via the mobile app or scheduled online.

Jamie Elgie, senior director of product management at Belkin, said “Android compatibility and the ability to control full household lighting – beyond just lamps – have been the top two requests from WeMo fans since we first launched, so we are excited to announce both at the 2013 CES. Both are a natural extension of the WeMo line and help expand on our promise of delivering the peace of mind that comes from knowing you can control and monitor your home from wherever you are, whenever you want.”

The WeMo Light Switch is due to go on sale from the summer.
