The futuristic promise of the connected home is slowly beginning to materialize, with learning thermostats like the Nest, as well as various solutions for monitoring and controlling your devices at home from afar. The Belkin WeMo Switch + Motion ($99.99 direct) helps bring that dream even closer, allowing remote access and automation for many household appliances. The WeMo system adds Wi-Fi connectivity to devices like lamps, fans, or, really anything else that plugs into a wall outlet. Then you can control them from your iOS device when you're not at home. That control is limited to simple on and off commands, but the Switch + Motion also lets you set up rules and schedules for your connected devices. It's a neat way to help save on energy costs or simply make life a little easier.
