With a small home, it doesn’t take much to fully automate the entire place.
You’re able to easily do that now with “smart outlets.” Rather than purchasing individual smart electronic items, you can get smart outlets and control anything plugged into it. Then you can control those electronics entirely with your smart phone. You can even automate it to turn off / on based on your location or the time of day!
We recommend the Wemo / Belkin Home Automation System. With the basic outlet feature, you can plug in any of your home electronics and then immediately start operating those from your mobile device. Even cooler, you can use your Amazon Echo in conjunction to voice automate the process!
Here’s some of the amazing things you can do in your smart home with your new Wemo Automation System:
- Plug in any TV, lamp, stereo, etc
- Schedule your appliances based on time
- Track “on time” of electronics
- Get texts or calls when electronics activated
