Wemo Mini Smart Plug Now Apple Homekit Compatible

Continuing to expand its award-winning Internet of Things ecosystemWemo today announced that Wemo Mini Smart Plug users can install new software from the Wemo App to enable Apple HomeKit compatibility. With this software update, Wemo Mini Smart Plug customers can add their Mini devices to the Apple Home app and have Siri control their devices and what’s plugged into them. Users can include the Wemo Mini into scenes and rooms to work with more than one hundred other HomeKit compatible products and access them while on the go.

The Wemo Mini Smart Plug is the first Wemo product to leverage Apple’s software authentication for HomeKit to enable compatibility without the use of other hardware.

The Wemo Mini Smart Plug with HomeKit software authentication empowers users to do all the activities Wemo users enjoy in the Wemo app but also extends the Wemo functionality into the Apple Home app via the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and HomePod. 

  • Control Wemo Mini from the Wemo App, Apple Home app or with Siri from your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and HomePod
  • Create personalized scenes such as movie lighting or schedule appliances for a morning routine
  • Set schedules and timers for lights and devices, and control it all by accessing the Wemo App or the Apple Home app
  • Sync lights with sunrise and sunset or personal schedules
  • Set up away mode to protect your home by randomly turning on and off lights

The update to enable HomeKit on Wemo Mini Smart Plugs will begin rolling out today and will be available to all customers by the end of next week.  The update includes a new Wemo app available via the Apple App Store for download (at no cost) that will facilitate a firmware update for Wemo Mini Smart Plugs. Wemo is also looking into providing HomeKit capabilities in other new Wemo products such as the Wemo Dimmer Light Switch coming later this year.
