Wemo Mini Smart Plug
Wemo achieves what many smart plug manufacturers are going for, and they’ve done it near flawlessly. You’re augmenting your smart home, making it more interconnected to your daily life, to your devices that are in constant use, and your expectations are that there will be no complications. Wemo upholds those expectations.
Their mini smart plug stays compact without dangling out of the socket. They kept the connectivity hardware and case as lightweight as possible, so even the wobbliest of outlets can easily be stabilized with Wemo’s mini smart plug.
Wemo connects to your Google Assistant, it can communicate with Alexa and Siri, and just about any smart hub on the market. If you’re going to truly master your home and make it work for you, you need to be able to control your appliances and small electronics with a simple voice command.
It’s compact, it allows scheduling through the free app, and that app allows you to connect an endless amount of smart plugs to your single device. That’s going to come in handy with another feature, one that works fantastically for home defense: randomizing the lights.
Don’t want to let potential criminals know when you go to sleep? Wemo will automatically shuffle your lights, turning some on, some off, and keeping it unpredictable so that burglars never know when you’ve quieted down for the night. It works when you’re sleeping, so you can rest easy. This feature is a major bonus if you’re heading out of town on a trip, and want to maintain the appearance that someone is always home.
The beauty of Wemo is that is isn’t piggybacking on a smart hub: if you don’t have one, you can still manage every single function from your phone, including commanding multiple plugs at the same time. Compact, inexpensive, and a stellar way to add a layer of security and automation to your home without going through an installation process.
