Wemo To Connect To Apple HomeKit

Playa Vista-based Wemo, the smart home products brand which is owned by Belkin International, announced this morning that it will be connecting its products to Apple's HomeKit. The connection allows Wemo users to control their systems using Siri on their iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch. According to Belkin, the new connection will come via the Wemo Bridge for HomeKit, which it says will ship in the fall. The new device connects to any home Wi-fi router via an Ethernet cable, and provides HomeKit integration with Wemo's smart plugs and light switches. Pricing on the new product was not announced. Wemo said the new product will roll out later this fall.
