Last year at CES, Belkin announced plans for a line of connected appliances, and the first product available is the Belkin Crock-Pot WeMo Smart Slow Cooker. Working similarly to other WeMo devices, the Slow Cooker lets you adjust its settings from anywhere using your smartphone and the WeMo app for Android and iOS. The on / off control seems basic, but it's essential for those who are afraid of leaving an appliance on while they're not at home. You also have the option to change cooking temperatures and check meal times from the app, which could come in handy if you need to adjust meals on the fly.

Belkin is also showing off a bunch of other products in the appliance line including a Mr. Coffee smart coffee maker and a Holmes smart humidifier. Those items are still in development with no availability dates in sight, but the Slow Cooker will be available for $99 in spring, 2014.
