WeMo looks really cool — it’s the kind of automation you think we should have by now, and yet still don’t. Nest is just a piece, but WeMo is more flexible and less specialized. IFTTT introduced trigger support WeMo and I hear there are some pretty creative recipes with WeMo now.
Sadly, the WeMo motion model is $100 and the simple outlet model is $50. With prices like these, it’s still just too expensive — a hard sell on anyone who has been leaving the cave-man way for years. The prices need to come down for adopting to skyrocket, and you’d need one for more than just a single room — and at these prices, that’s basically all there is going to be.
