PRESS RELEASE

LAS VEGAS - January 6, 2014 - Continuing to evolve the WeMo platform of simple, ingenious connected home products, Belkin today announced a range of new WeMo devices including the WeMo LED Lighting Starter Set and new WeMo Smart LED Bulbs. Also available for the WeMo line at CES is a revised Android and iOS app offering improved functionality and enhanced lighting features. Belkin's new WeMo line-up will debut at CES Unveiled on January 5, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay and will be on display at the Belkin's booth, South Hall 3 #30451, from 7-10 January, 2014.

Belkin's new LED Lighting Starter Set and WeMo Smart LED Bulbs allow you to control, schedule and dim your smart LED bulbs from anywhere. As easy as replacing a standard light bulb, the WeMo Smart LED Bulbs work through the WeMo Link and are controlled via Wi-Fi and the WeMo app. The long-lasting bulbs are 60-watt equivalent with 800 Lumens and 3000 Kelvin for a bright, pleasing warm white light. Fully dimmable, WeMo Smart LED Bulbs can be controlled individually or in groups.  The WeMo LED Starter Set includes two LED Smart Bulbs and a WeMo Link, which can support up to 50 individual Smart bulbs. Individual WeMo Smart LED bulbs also will be sold separately.

"Since first launching at the 2012 International CES, WeMo has become a major player in the connected home thanks to its simple, scalable, and affordable nature - words not typically associated with the connected home," said Ohad Zeira, director of product management for WeMo. "As the most approachable entry point into the Smart Home, we are excited to introduce new products and app upgrades in 2014 that will continue that trend, as well as grow our business with various future partners to expand WeMo's presence throughout the house."

WeMo LED Lighting Starter Set (F5Z0489) £99.99/€99.99

WeMo Smart LED Bulbs (F7C033) £29.99/€34.99
