The TV, the curling iron, the PCs …. kids have no trouble finding the on switch, but it’s like the off switch doesn’t exist. At CES 2014, Dana Knight of Belkin, showed off their WeMo-enabled products. These are little switches that are app- controlled and allow you to control just about anything with the switch. The new Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker with We-Mo lets you can start dinner from your office or adjust the cooker’s settings if you’re running late.
The company also announced an expansion to its WeMo line of home products including the WeMo LED Lighting Starter Set and WeMo Smart LED Bulbs which gives you control of your smart LED bulbs from anywhere. PS. While helpful, remember it’s good parenting to teach your kids to shut those switches, too. Belkin WeMo is a great backup plan for all of us who forget now and then.
