Wemo Mini (F7C063)
Big on smarts, but small in stature, the Wemo Mini is a smart plug that connects everyday household items to the Wemo app so you can control them from your phone or through voice commands. At half the size of the previous Wemo Switch, Mini’s streamlined, stackable design maintains all of the same features as the original, but is specifically designed to stack on top of each other, allowing for two smart plugs in a single outlet. Wemo Mini also works with Amazon Echo and Google Home to control via simple voice commands, as well as the Nest Learning Thermostat’s Home and Away modes.
Turn household electronics on or off from anywhere Smart time rules to set schedules or turn devices on or off via sunrise or sunset Stackable design lets you use two Minis in one outlet Thermal cutout prevents overheating Operates over Wi-Fi or mobile Internet, at home and away Convenient WiFi technology, no hub required Plugs into any regular 120v wall outlet Free Wemo app Works with IFTTT, Amazon Echo, Google Home and the Nest Learning Thermostat
Wemo Dimmer (F7C059)
The new Wemo Dimmer, a 2017 Innovations Award Honoree, is a next generation smart dimming light switch that brings real intelligence to lighting. Wemo Dimmer includes all of the features of the original Wemo Light Switch, plus advanced updates such as Night Mode to prevent harsh lights at night and a customized bulb calibration. Current dimmer products have a single dimming range for all bulb types, which tends to create flickering and noise issues, but Wemo Dimmer uses the Wemo app to custom calibrate for any bulb type including incandescents (up to 400 watts), CFLs or LEDs, to eliminate those annoyances. In addition, Dimmer’s Night Mode feature enables users to set a specific level of brightness during a set period of time, which is ideal for middle-of-the-night bathroom trips or checking on the kids when they are asleep.
With a touch-capacitive dimmer control instead of a mechanical lever and a responsive light bar to indicate status, Wemo Dimmer is as smart looking on the outside as it is on the inside. The light bar uses movement, full RGB color and brightness as a language to provide contextual information. For example, Wemo rules are always signified by green, third party actions like Amazon Alexa are aqua, a radar “pinging” animation indicates that it is searching for a Wi-Fi signal, and a left-to-right “sending” animation is used for other features to let them know the message is being delivered to other devices.
Wemo also recently launched a new long press feature for both the current Wemo Light Switch and the new Wemo Dimmer, which allows for additional controls from the hardware itself. Pressing and holding the switch for more than two seconds will trigger a second action involving other Wemo devices. For example, long pressing a Wemo Light Switch or Dimmer upon leaving the house could turn off all Wemo-connected electronics in the home, or even trigger an away mode setting to randomize lights while away. Wemo Dimmer also works with Amazon Echo and Google Home for dimming and on/off control via simple voice commands, as well as the Nest Learning Thermostat’s Home and Away modes.
