Belkin has introduced a new Crock-Pot-brand slow cooker integrated with the company's WeMo home automation technology. According to Belkin, this will be the first of a number of WeMo enabled small appliances, including items like space heaters.
The Wi-Fi-enabled cooker looks nearly identical to other similar slow cookers, with controls on the front for toggling warm, low and high settings -- but chefs can use the WeMo iOS app to adjust temperatures and set automated on/off timers.
The "Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker enabled with WeMo" will be available for $99.99 this spring.
Belkin also announced new LED light bulbs that work with the WeMo system, similar to Philips' Hue bulbs.
