Belklin explains a little more: “The WeMo Insight Switch can help keep your home energy bills low by allowing you to set schedules, monitor energy usage on electronics, and find out which devices are used most often.
WeMo can notify you instantly if home electronics have been left on and you can choose to either leave them on or turn them off from anywhere. Find out if you left the A/C window unit running and turn it off, find out if the kids are playing video games instead of doing homework, or schedule a space heater to turn on five minutes before you walk through the door.”
Using the Belkin WeMo Insight Switch system and your smartphone you can set schedules, create rules for electronics to respond at specific times or to sunset or sunrise, as well as receive notifications for any devices connected to a WeMo Insight Switch.
