Wemo Bridge To Enable Apple HomeKit Compatibility

Wemo, the smart home brand from Belkin International, today announced it plans to enable Apple HomeKit compatibility to more than two million Wemo solutions on the market.  With the HomeKit enabled Wemo Bridge, Wemo users will be able to ask Siri on their iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch – “Siri, turn on Wemo” or “Siri, dim the living room lights,” or use the Apple Home app on any of these devices.   Users will also be able to include Wemo products into scenes and rooms to work with more than one hundred other HomeKit compatible products and access them while on the go.

The Wemo Bridge connects to any home Wi-Fi router via an Ethernet cable to enable HomeKit integration into Wemo smart plugs and light switches in the home.  The bridge then leverages the Wi-Fi of the home router to send the HomeKit capabilities from Siri enabled devices such as Apple iPhones, iPads and Apple watches to Wemo smart plugs and light switches.

Availability and Pricing
The Wemo Bridge for HomeKit is planned for availability later this fall.  Pricing will announced at time ofavailability.
