Have you ever left the iron on, only to remember hours later while you're sitting at your desk at work? Yeah, us too.
The WeMo Switch is a simple plug that you can insert into any outlet. Once you do, just plug in any appliance you like into the WeMo. With the companion app on your device, you can control your appliances from anywhere. You can flip off the lights if you forgot to turn them on before you left or have your electric kettle boiling so you can have hot water ready for tea when you get home from work. You can even schedule your appliances to turn on whenever you want them to.
WeMo also works with Alexa, so you can have her handle the appliances at the sound of your voice. It even has a security-friendly Away Mode which turns the lights on and off randomly to make it appear as if someone is home and ward off intruders.
