Belkin is showing if its recently announced Wemo home automation system here at CES 2012. As we mentioned earlier today, the company has simplified home automation with its Home Control Switch, Motion Sensor and iPhone app. With this system you'll be able to walk into your bedroom and, say, have the lights and TV power on automatically. Additionally, if you're out of the house and forgot to unplug something like a hair straightener, you can use Wemo to (hopefully) prevent any fires. The $49.99 Home Control Switch and $59.99 Motion Sensor will both be available in May, and be sold bundled together for $99.99.
