Have you ever left your house wondering if you turned off the lights? I know I have…lots of times! I couldn’t do anything knowing that the thought was in the back of my head and eventually turned back to go and double check. I really wished i had Belkin’s WeMo Light Switch that allows you to turn lights on and off from anywhere–from across the house, from the backyard, or from the other side of the world. It replaces the standard light switch in your home and can be controlled remotely with an Android smartphone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch via your existing Wi-Fi network.
All you have to do is download the WeMo app that has been designed to do simple tasks like scheduling a porch light to turn on after dark or making sure the lights are on when your kids get home. But The app also allows you to set more complex customized schedules, such as turning lights on and off at different times on different days. Another cool features is that you can now set your lights to turn on or off by responding to the sun. Simply enter your city name in the WeMo App and then program your porch lights to turn on at sunset and off at sunrise. The WeMo Light Switch was designed for DIY installation, while its subtle backlighting makes it easy to find in the dark. You can manually turn the switch on or off by simply tapping it. Get it now for $49.99.
