At last year's CES, Belkin introduced its WeMo Light Switch, and this year the company is trying to make smart lighting even more of a no-brainer with its new LED Lighting Starter Set. At $129, the set comes with two LED Smart Bulbs and the WeMo Link. The package lets you schedule and dim the lights from anywhere using the WeMo app, which uses a Wi-Fi signal to control appliances with your smartphone. The light bulbs are 60-watt equivalent with 800 Lumens and 3000 Kelvin, are fully dimmable, and can be set with a number of features like vacation mode, the latter of which automatically turns lights on and off when people are in the house. The WeMo also includes a "dim to sleep" function that gradually dims lights over time as you head to bed.
Belkin is working hard to become the go-to company for smart lighting, and for the smart home in general. They've put the WeMo system in many home appliances — everything from an electrical outlet to a baby monitor, and now even kitchen appliances like a slow cooker. The WeMo Link in this starter kit also supports up to 50 individual Smart LED Bulbs, but at $39 for each individual light bulb, Belkin's hope that consumers will replace all their lights immediately might be too high.
