Belkin's WeMo family of sensors and switches are a popular smart-home entry point, and this year at CES 2015, the family is getting bigger, with four brand-new sensors. There's also a host of new smart lights you'll be able to incorporate into the system thanks to two new partnerships. Click through to see your new options.
To start with, there's the WeMo LED, announced at last year's CES and available now.
The WeMo LEDs rely on the WeMo Link plug-in hub to translate their Zigbee signal into Wi-Fi for your home router. The new partner bulbs all use Zigbee, too, and will also require the WeMo Link.
The first partner is Osram Sylvania, with a new line of "Lightify" smart LEDs that'll work with WeMo. This version is "color tunable," meaning you can dial the color temperature up and down.
There's also a BR30 floodlight version you can use.
Osram's "GardenSpot" outdoor lights will work with WeMo, too.
These color-changing "Flex" lightstrips will work, too.
The other partner is TCP, which already produces a line of smart LEDs. Those won't work with WeMo, but a new line of TCP Zigbee LEDs, like this retrofit can lighting setup, will.
There are also standard-size TCP LEDs that'll work with WeMo.
For flood lighting, you can go with a TCP BR30 LED...
...or this PAR38-shaped model.
Here they are all together. The variety of shapes and designs is intended to cover whatever lighting need you can think of, which seems like a bright move for Belkin.
