Belkin releases Wemo hub with Apple HomeKit support
The Verge ---------- Belkin is releasing a new version of its Wemo smart home hub that allows its connected home system to integrate with Apple’s HomeKit. The new hub costs $40 and is going on sale today — it was originally announced early last year with a fall release window that came and went. Though it may be a little frustrating for Wemo users to have to pay for a new hub just to get this kind of integration, it’s an unfortunate necessity since Apple requires (almost) all HomeKit devices to have a proprietary chip inside them. That means building and shipping new hardware; Philips had to do the same thing with its Hue system, for instance. To learn more click on the picture below to read the article.
