WeMo Upgrades App and Brings IFTTT Compatibility to WeMo Smart LED Bulbs

Rushden, UK – May 8, 2015WeMo® today announced an updated version of its award-winning WeMo App, which brings IFTTT support to the WeMo LED bulbs and further enhances the smart home lighting experience for WeMo consumers.

“WeMo is the most approachable entry point to the smart home and one of the most robust connected ecosystems on the market, but we continue to seek out ways to improve our platform and deliver more value for our consumers,” said Peter Taylor, director of product management for WeMo. “Adding IFTTT compatibility to the WeMo LED bulbs unlocks a world of new customisation options for household lighting and helps users free up valuable time and energy, allowing them to live more fully in the present.”

Adding IFTTT compatibility to the WeMo LED bulbs builds upon the successful relationship between IFTTT and WeMo and creates an even larger ecosystem for controlling and customising household lighting. WeMo LEDs can now trigger or be triggered by a variety of online apps and services, including geofencing, text messages and social media. WeMo users can now receive a text when their kids get home and turns on the lights, set the lights to flash when they get a new tweet, or set the front porch lights to come on the minute they turn onto their street so it isn’t dark when they pull in the driveway.

Available for both iOS and Android, the improved WeMo app, version 1.12, also delivers improvements to device discovery and a direct, in-app link to the WeMo Community. The WeMo Community is a forum of WeMo users and a place to share use cases, DIY projects, and troubleshooting tips.

Availability
WeMo version 1.12 for iOS and Android will be available at no cost and downloadable this week in the App Store and Google Play Store, respectively. The WeMo LED channel on IFTTT is now online. WeMo LED bulbs are available now at Belkin.com and retailers worldwide, for £79.99 for the WeMo LED Starter Kit and £24.99 for single WeMo LED bulbs.
