The accessory vendor Belkin is pushing what it hopes will be a standard called WeMo, which connects household devices over WiFi. The idea is that you’ll be able to control lighting or manage a crock pot from an app. WeMo apparently will also connect with the popular app ifTTT (If This Then That), so you’ll get a text message if, for instance, your front door opens.
There’s no immediate impact on wearables, although it doesn’t take a huge leap of imagination to see how a wearable device could play into a WeMo scheme.
We note this because Belkin launched WeMo-enabled LED lighting and a slow cooker at CES. You can get an idea of the products here.
