What can you do with it?
You Make The Rules

The Wemo App allows you to set Rules for your Wemo devices to follow, such as turning ON the lights in the evening so you never come home to a dark house again.
Control It Remotely

Using your Wemo Account, you can turn ON your Wemo from anywhere as long as you are connected to the internet.  If you do not have an Account yet, you will need to create one.  For instructions, click here.
