For your money, you'll get a smallish plug-in hub that connects directly to your router and to power. Once you've got it plugged in, it'll connect your existing WeMo devices with Apple HomeKit, the set of iOS-based smart home protocols that let you control compatible gadgets together in Apple's Home app, or by using spoken Siri commands.

WeMo devices supported by the HomeKit bridge include:

That list leaves out offshoot gadgets like WeMo's coffee maker and humidifier, but it's still nice to see a majority of the product line in the mix, including WeMo's first-gen switches and motion detectors, which Belkin isn't even selling anymore.

"We've had an overwhelming positive response from customers when we announced last spring that we would make the Wemo Bridge compatible with HomeKit support," said Kara Alexander, Wemo's senior product manager. "We have made it a top priority working with Apple to ensure an incredible experience for both Wemo and HomeKit users."
