Wemo WiFi Smart Dimmer Light Switch Now Compatible With Apple HomeKit

Wemo today announced a software update that enables Apple HomeKit compatibility with the Wemo WiFi Smart Dimmer. The Wemo Dimmer is an elegant wall switch that embeds smart lighting technology with dimming functionality to be controlled using the Home app or Wemo app on iPhone and iPad. Wemo users can add Wemo Dimmer to the Apple Home app and ask Siri to control lighting throughout the home with HomePod or even automatically based on rules and intelligence. Now both Wemo Mini Smart Plugs and Wemo WiFi Smart Dimmers can be included into scenes and rooms to work with more than one hundred other HomeKit compatible products.

Using Wemo with Apple Home app and Siri, consumers can:

  • Voice control Wemo with Siri from your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, HomePod, Apple TV, and Mac.
  • Add Wemo to rooms in the Apple Home app and control multiple HomeKit compatible products at once.
  • Automate Wemo with scenes in the Apple Home app.
  • Use Scenes to turn Wemo Dimmer on/off or adjust light levels based on your location, time of day, or a command to Siri like “Movie Time”.
  • Remotely check if someone left the Wemo Dimmer lights on, and then adjust light levels, from your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac.

The update to enable HomeKit on the Wemo Dimmer will begin rolling out today.  A new Wemo app, available for free via the Apple App Store, will facilitate a firmware update for Wemo Dimmers.
