After missing its promised roll out last fall, Belkin is bringing HomeKit support to its Wemo smarthome ecosystem with the Wemo Bridge, finally allowing users to integrate Wemo accessories with other HomeKit-enabled devices and control them using Siri. The $40 Wemo Bridge will allow owners to incorporate Wemo’s line of light switches, dimmers, motion sensors and smart plugs into room and scene configurations with more than 100 other HomeKit-compatible devices, providing easy control both when at home and while away. The Wemo Bridge simply plugs into a user’s Wi-Fi router through an Ethernet cable and then provides wireless access to all compatible Wemo accessories through the company’s dedicated app or Apple’s Home app.
