Belkin Wemo Insight Switch

Belkin-WeMo-Apps

This was the first Home Automation device I purchased.  I instantly fell in love with it.  There has been so many uses that I have found.  How many times have you wanted to turn on a light in a room but the switch is on the other side and you are surrounded by darkness?  Grab your phone and push the button.  You can plug anything into this device(Lamp, Fan, Crock-pot, TV, etc.)  It still leaves enough room for the second plug to be used.  It even tracks your energy usage for whatever you have plugged in!

It runs around $59.00 dollars but there is no monthly fee.  Another nice feature is that you can even set schedules for it.  Let’s say you get home around 9pm at night and don’t want to come home to a dark house.  It also works great for when you are out of town and you want people to think you are home.  Another favorite I love and you parents will as well.  How many kids want the light left on?  You just settle down for bed and hear…Dad!  Dad!  You forgot to turn the light on!  Now you can just grab your phone and push the button!  Don’t forget to use the timer so it doesn’t stay on all night. 🙂  It works on both iPhone and Android. A must have device! 🙂
