Linksys and WeMo gives you the perfect gifts for a smarter home

I’ve been starting to explore products that make our home smart.  As in WeMo smart.  I am really enjoying the WeMo products that I have in my home.  For example, the WEMO Mini Smart plug, lets you control your home from anywhere: plug any device into the Wemo Mini and you can turn it on or off from across the room or across the globe. You can even add a schedule to automate your devices or control them with your voice using Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.  I have this in the kid’s room.  Just remember when setting up, go to your WIFI settings and select WeMo.  It’s pretty easy to set up.  And don’t worry, no one is listening when you’re using WeMo 😉

The @Belkin Wemo Mini Smart Plug lets you control your electronic devices right from your phone or tablet. The Smart Plug uses your existing home WiFi network to provide wireless control of lamps, heaters, fans, and more--with no… Click To Tweet

Another one that I like is WeMo Insight Smart Plug.  Plugging in a Wemo Insight Wi-Fi smart plug is like feeding smart pills to your lamp. Not only can you turn lights and other appliances on and off remotely from the free Wemo app; with the Insight, you can also find out what your appliances are up to via real-time reports about energy consumption. Learn how much that space heater is costing you. Get push notifications when your lamp turns on or off. Make sure your stuff is off when you’re not using it and set worry-free schedules, all from your smartphone or tablet.  How cool is that?

Then there’s the WeMo Light Switch which I am going to give one away! Control your lights conveniently from your smartphone or tablet with the WeMo Smart Dimmer. This Wi-Fi enabled device lets you choose the desired level of brightness and set schedules to suit your preferences. Sync your lights to sunrise and sunset. Dim them when it’s time for your favourite show. Easy to install, it works with Nest and Google Home.

From @Belkin the WeMo WiFi Smart Dimmer connects to your existing home WiFi network to provide wireless control of your lights – with no subscription or hub required. Click To Tweet

And everything runs smoothly thanks to my Linksys router.   It delivers the fastest Wi-Fi speeds to multiple devices simultaneously which is what we need in our building as the walls are concrete.  It’s perfect for gaming son, 4K or HD streaming for our fancy Sony TV and video conferencing and more. The EA8300 also features “Smart Connect” band steering to intelligently choose the best radio band for every device to optimize the performance of your network. And you can control it all from your smartphone with the easy to use Linksys Smart Wi-Fi app, customizing all the settings to your liking from anywhere!   I’ve downloaded the app and I can control my son’s gaming.   He loves his Fortnite but I like that I can cut it out and as mean as that may be, I’ll take every little help I can get as I don’t have a village.  Well, maybe I do now thanks to WeMo and Linksys for helping me, hahaha!

Ok, with the holidays swiftly approaching, I have a great giveaway for you valued at $100 and it’s from WeMo.  Take your home lighting to the next level with the WeMo Wifi Smart Dimmer.   This giveaway is Canadian only, one entry per household and 18+yrs to enter.  Giveaway will end, on Dec. 17/18.   Good Luck!

  10. Tiffany Rotulo | 11th Dec 18

    I have never heard of WeMo before but if sounds pretty cool. I like that you could set a schedule for your lights. My kids can’t sleep without the hall light on, with WeMo I could set it to turn off after a certain time so I don’t have to get out of bed to do it. Genius!

  11. Melinda | 11th Dec 18

    I like the dimming to night mode. I have not heard of this company before.

  12. NormaJane | 11th Dec 18

    I have seen the brand name WEMO advertised before but was unsure what it was.
    I like the option of “Night Mode” because I may be able to let the dogs out in the middle of the night without waking fully up by turning on all the lights to get to the door.
    I also like that it looks like a normal light switch wire to change out the old switch thus I will not have to hire someone to do it for us 🙂

  13. Robyn Bellefleur | 11th Dec 18

    I haven’t heard of WeMo before this review post. I love the dimming to Night Mode.

  24. ZeroTo100 | 13th Dec 18

    I have seen the WeMo switch at Best Buy before, but I’ve never looked into its features. Two features that I like are the Night Mode, which prevents blinding light if switching the light on at night time. Another one I like is the IFTTT integration because it allows for so many use cases of the dimmer.

  25. Jennifer flett | 13th Dec 18

    Seriously would like to try this wemo switch!

  26. Silvia D | 14th Dec 18

    I love the dimming to night mode. I hadn’t heard of this before 🙂

  30. Catherine Robichaud | 15th Dec 18

    I have never heard of WeMo before. I love that you can schedule when your lights come on and go off so you never come home to a dark house and it’s also great for making people think you’re home when you’re away.

  31. Jonnie | 15th Dec 18

    I have heard the name before. I like that you can control things with your phone even when you’re not home.

    For all these technical gadgets I’m afraid that I always turn to one of my sons for his advice, I am completely lost in this field of technology!
