Weare all about the smart home technology, and it seems that there isn’t one piece of owning a home that a smart gadget can’t improve. You can even improve your lighting experience with a smart light switch like Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer from Belkin which lets you control your lights from anywhere.
Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer gives you total control of your lights by connecting to your Wi-Fi network. It controls anything that is compatible with a traditional dimmer switch. It also connects to Alexa and Google Assistant so your voice can control the lights — can it get any better? It even pairs with Nest so you can completely control the comfort levels in your house from lighting to temperature. Nest will tell your dimmer when you’re away or home so the lights can greet you accordingly; you’ll save energy this way. Finally, Wemo also connects to IFTTT so can you get notifications and make other customizations.
Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer works with any type of light bulb, from LED to CFL to incandescent but doesn’t work with 3-way dimmer switches. The dimmer is easy to install too and doesn’t feature flickering. You can install it on most existing switch plates, but it isn’t designed to work with metal plates. I hate getting up out of bed to turn off lights so I want this. You can even set up smart schedules for the Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer with the free app so you don’t walk into a dark house or you have the lights come when you wake up. There’s even a guard against blinding light with “night mode” so the lights aren’t super bright when you’re in the house at night.
When you buy the Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer, here’s what you can expect to find in the package:
- Wemo Dimmer
- Face plate
- Four wire nuts
- Wire labels
- Quick start guide
I love the design of the Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer because of its sleek minimal style and the way it’s so easy to install. There’s even a possibility that you can make it with Siri if you use Siri Bridge, according to the manufacturer.
You can find Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer at Amazon, Best Buy and most electronics retailers for around $72.00 which isn’t bad when you consider how much smart home tech costs these days! Wemo is just the beginning of home automation: Belkin also sells the Wemo Bridge, the Wemo Smart Plug, the Wemo Smart Light Switch and other Wemo products.
