Belkin launches a brand new Wemo Out of doors HomeKit Good Plug
Smart home plugs aren't exactly new, but there is a difference between plugs for indoor use and plugs for outdoor use. For the latter, it's important to have things like weather protection or water resistance. After all, you don't want to fry your circuit board in case it rains and your connector is working.
For those looking for an outdoor smart plug, perhaps to power their outdoor lights, it might be interesting to learn that Belkin has since announced its new Wemo outdoor smart plug. This smart plug is weatherproof to protect it from the elements and has two sockets so you can connect at least two devices at the same time.
The Wemo Outdoor Smart Plug is also compatible with Apple's HomeKit platform. So if you've already set up a HomeKit ecosystem, you should be able to control devices connected to this plug from the Home app, or use Apple's Siri digital assistant to control your voice . There is also support for other digital assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
If you're interested in Belkin's outdoor Wemo Smart Plug, it is $ 40 and can be purchased through the Belkin website.
