  • You can program six of your favorite HomeKit scenes into this single controller.
  • It has an easy mounting system and only costs $50.

Belkin’s Wemo brand has announced the Wemo Stage Scene Controller. This is a wireless remote control that allows users to manage and control scenes for lighting, entertainment, security, and temperature in the Home app on the best iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch through Bluetooth or Thread.

The Wemo Stage was designed for easy automation through simple long-press and short-press functions. It can activate up to six customized HomeKit scenes for a home environment that is completely tailored by you. This means you can have the remote set for use with your movie night, bedtime, or energy saving scenes, and so much more. This wireless controller is a great alternative option to in-app controls and experiences, as it gives users a physical accessory that is solely dedicated to controlling all of their best HomeKit accessories.

You get a self-adhesive faceplate with the Wemo Stage that allows for easy mounting anywhere in the home, no hardware installation required. It also has a magnetic slot for the scene controller to click into place, turning it into a replacement wall switch or portable remote control. You can even use it with standard Decora faceplates.

“The magic of this product is in its simplicity,” says Karl Jonsson, senior director of product management, Wemo. “We are also very invested in the future of Connected Home over IP (CHIP) and continue to be aligned with its belief that smart home devices should be secure, reliable, and seamless to use.”

The Wemo Stage Scene Controller is just another great addition to the Wemo line of accessories, such as the Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Plug, Wemo Outdoor Smart Plug, Wemo Smart Light Switch, and Wemo Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer. You can get a Wemo Stage Scene Controller for just $50 from Belkin’s website.
