Wemo Bridge for HomeKit Launches in Canada Feb. 23; Pre-Orders Now Live

Share:

Last month, Belkin unveiled their new Wemo Bridge, which brings HomeKit compatibility to over two million Wemo solutions on the market. With HomeKit support, that means users will be able to use Siri to control any compatible Wemo device.

Apple.ca has launched pre-orders for the Wemo Bridge ($39.99 USD on Belkin.com), with a launch slated for February 23. Pricing for the Wemo Bridge is at $49.95 CAD.

The Wemo Bridge plugs into an ethernet port of any Wi-Fi router, to leverage your home network connection to all your compatible devices, such as Wemo Mini, Wemo Dimmer, Wemo Light Switch, Wemo Insight Smart Plug, Wemo Switch, and Wemo Switch + Motion.

You can also buy the Wemo Bridge from Belkin.com here.

Let us know if you’ll be picking up a Wemo Bridge–it’ll allow you to control your Wemo devices using Siri from iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.

Thanks Shaun K.!

    Bought mine a month back directly from Belkin – $29 Canadian, delivered. Works as expected – very easy install – basically just plugged it in and it connected very quickly. Works well. Have it mounted alongside my Hue bridge – it is much smaller than the Hue bridge FYI.

    If you are feeling adventurous, you can also roll up your sleeves and dig into a little Homebridge and do it in software!

    Just ordered one, thanks for the tip!

    Any chance you could recommend a guide for setting this up on a raspberry pi? Or any tips/pitfalls to look out for? Going to try and set it up, thank you for the recommendation!

    Anyone who has homebridge let me give you this warning. My wemo’s were working AMAZING on homebridge. The automation part was fantastic. Ordered one of these from global amazon when it launched. This piece of crap has completely broken my system. The home app takes longer to recognize their states with this thing and all my automations won’t fire now.

    I’m pretty pissed off.

    I can’t even revert back to homebridge because this thing seems to link to them somehow the first time it fires up.

    Switched from Homebridge to the Wemo Bridge. Had a few hiccups with connectivity in the beginning but working great now.

    Thank you, greatly appreciated!

    Got it working on my raspberry pi! Thank you very much, highly recommend this approach to anyone who has an extra computer lying around, save yourself the cost of the bridge!

    Isn’t the power of open-source awesome? Lots of plug-ins to support other equipment makers as well!
