CES 2018: Belkin's Wemo line picks up Apple HomeKit bolster

Belkin on Sunday reported it is at long last prepared to start transporting the Wemo HomeKit Bridge. The little frill will permit the greater part of its Wemo home robotization gadgets to cooperate with Apple's HomeKit stage. 

The Wemo Bridge deals for $39.99, and is accessible beginning today on Belkin's site and through Amazon, with orders shipping January 14. 

A help report on Belkin's site records the items the Wemo Bridge will right now work with. Those Wemo gadgets include:

  • Wemo Switch
  • Wemo Insight
  • Wemo Light Switch
  • Wemo Mini
  • Wemo Dimmer
  • Wemo Motion

For those who own a Wemo coffee pot, it looks like "Hey Siri, make me some coffee" isn't an option right now. Bummer.

The Wemo Bridge connects to your Wi-Fi network via an Ethernet port on your wireless router. After plugging the Bridge into your router, your Wemo devices will appear in the Home app on your iOS devices.

As a Wemo user myself, I received an email with a discount code for 40-percent off of the Wemo Bridge, which I promptly used. If you are a Wemo user and have long wished you could tell Siri to turn off your lights, check your inbox.
