With the rapid advancement of technology, we guess it was only a matter of time before home automations started to become more commonplace. If this is an idea you’d like to hop on board with, you might have heard of Belkin’s WeMo Switch and Motion products. Well if you have, the good news is that these products are now up for pre-order via Belkin or Amazon’s website with the Switch/Motion bundle setting you back $99.99. For those who are wondering what the heck WeMo is, it’s basically a home automated solution by Belkin.

The Switch will connect to your home’s WiFi and via the WeMo iOS app, users will be able to control the flow of power going through their home, thus allowing users to be in better control which could lead to higher efficiency and maybe even savings in the electricity bill. Examples included being able to remotely turn off a light/heater in the house while you’re out, or even scheduling things such as night lights to turn on or off at during certain periods of the day. As the Motion gadget’s name might imply, Belkin’s WeMo can also trigger via motion detection, so having lights turning on when you walk into a room, and turning off when you leave. More details of Belkin’s WeMo can be found on their website, or by checking out the video above.
