IFTTT connects your home to the web

IFTTT is an amazing new service that puts the internet to work for you. IFTTT lets you create 'Recipes' that connect apps, websites, and devices together to perform all kinds of custom tasks for you.

WeMo talks back

As well as listening to the Web through IFTTT, WeMo can talk back, triggering events with online services like Facebook, Evernote, SMS, Google Calendar and many more.

This means that you can set up WeMo Motion to send you a text alert when someone enters the house. You could set it next to the cookie jar, and send yourself an email reminding you to eat an apple instead!
