Wemo announces new Smart Dimmer with Thread

Los Angeles, United States. 03 August, 2022 – Wemo, the home automation and IoT brand from Belkin International, announces the new Wemo Smart Dimmer with Thread, enabling users to control their lights from anywhere through the Home app, Wemo stage, or by asking Siri.

Thread technology is the latest and most advanced connection available for smart accessories, offering a separate mesh network for connected devices. Working exclusively with HomeKit, the Wemo Smart Dimmer is Thread certified and built on the latest and greatest technology to allow a faster and more reliable connection. Users can dim or turn lights on and off from anywhere through iPhone, iPad, Wemo Stage, or by asking Siri, and set schedules in the Home app for even more flexibility. By linking the Smart Dimmer to other HomeKit devices including the Wemo Smart Video Doorbell, users can also activate lights when motion is detected.

Key features:

  • Works with neutral or no neutral wiring, offering a universal solution for homes old or new
  • Supports Thread and Bluetooth
  • Provides easy setup with NFC – tap iPhone to the Smart Dimmer and follow the prompts to start controlling in seconds
  • Built with flicker-free technology
  • Works exclusively with Apple HomeKit
  • Replaces single-pole switches only; not compatible with 3-way switches

The Wemo Smart Dimmer with Thread expands the company’s growing suite of smart home accessories that offer HomeKit integration, eliminating the need for the Wemo app. The new Smart Dimmer joins the Wemo Stage and Wemo Smart Plug in the company’s Thread-enabled product collection.
