One-minute review

Belkin is a name more familiar with smartphone and computing peripherals, even though it’s been manufacturing some of the best smart home devices under the Wemo brand since 2012. The Wemo WiFi smart plug is the brand’s latest launch in the smart home space, and has recently been extended to the UK and Europe, after initially only being available in the US.The Wemo WiFi smart plug is a single socket that can be plugged into a power outlet and controlled using Wemo’s own app, Apple’s Home app or Siri – although those in the US also benefit from Alexa and Google Assistant support.
