Belkin WeMo Insight Switch

  • Remotely turn electronic devices On/Off through WeMo app
  • Monitor the energy usage of a connected device
  • Program schedules, rules and even receive alert notifications
  • Quick setup – plug into AC outlet then connect electronic device
  • WeMo app is compatible with iOS and Android operating systems

Did you forget to turn off the coffee machine? Wonder no more and see which electronic devices you left on or off directly from your smartphone or tablet with the help of the Belkin WeMo Insight Switch! With the WeMo app, you can turn your devices on and off as you please while also monitoring the energy consumption of each device!

Grow your existing WeMo network or get started on a brand new one with the F7C029FC WeMo Insight Switch from Belkin. This plug-and-play device gives you the ability to remotely turn any connected electronic device On or Off from the convenience of the Belkin WeMo app on an Android or iOS smart device. Simply plug the Insight Switch into an AC outlet and then connect the electronic device you wish to control by plugging it into the AC pass-through outlet on the Insight Switch and you’re ready to go. Through the WeMo app you can now create custom schedules and rules for the electronic device while also setting up email alerts to notify you if the connected device has been on for too long.

On/Off control is great but that’s not all the Insight Switch can do. This device will also do exactly what its name suggests; it provides insight into the energy usage of the electronic device. Monitor the devices used most often in your home, or perceived to be the largest energy guzzlers to find out how much each is truly costing you and see where money can be saved by reducing usage of certain devices.

Join the Green movement by lowering dependence on paper with the Boogie Board 8.5 LCD Writing Tablet from Improv Electronics. Using just one of these tablets can save as much as 50,000 pieces of paper because it cuts out the need for sticky notes, memo pads, scrap paper, etc. Think about all the grocery lists thrown in the trash after being used and the to-do lists with a few chores on them that are crumpled up and thrown out afterwards. With this LCD Writing Tablet write out a grocery list and afterwards simply erase it from the board with the push of a button so it can be used for another paper-saving task. Weighing in at an ultra-light 4 ounces and a thickness of only a 1/8 inch make the Tablet ideal for use on the go too. Bring it with you to school or the office for note taking as an alternative to using scratch paper throughout the day. An included pen-like stylus makes writing or drawing as easy as it would be on a piece of paper. Can’t find the stylus or don’t feel like using one? No problem. The Boogie Board Writing Tablet can even be drawn or written on with a finger.
