Belkin today announced an expansion to its WeMo line with the new WeMo Door and Window Sensor, the Keychain sensor, and an Alarm sensor to notify users when an existing home alarm goes off. It also introduced an improved motion detector with a new infrared option to detect heat signatures for even more precise motion detection. All four sensors will debut in the second half of 2015 at yet-to-be-determined prices.

Belkin also is working on a Water sensor with "Echo Technology" that will monitor household water usage. The new WeMo Water sensor will attach to the home's plumbing system and analyze pressure changes caused by faucets and the flushing of toilets. The sensor can calculate consumption duration and even detect damaging water leaks. The WeMo Water is still in the field trial stage with no set availability date at this time.

Elgato is also at CES, presenting its previously announced Eve Energy and Eve Door & Window sensors along with the Eve app. The HomeKit-compliant products allow you monitor the energy usage and control connected appliances with the tap of the screen. The Eve Energy and Eve Door & Window sensors will debut in Q1 2015, and the company is also working on sensors for air quality, temperature, humidity, and water consumption.

I feel like my dad when I shout 'who left this light on' and continuously wander round the house turning the heating down, closing doors and windows and reading the electricity meter.
Now I can do it all from my phone, I'm depriving my kids of the chance to feel like me when they are older, unless they just sit there staring at their phones...oh maybe that's already happened.


As long as they don't invent an iPhone controlled radiator bleed key there will still be some room for manliness in the house of the future.

dont trust it, if u don't too plz reply me

So all these security things by apple, like how u can unlock doors by your phone is not really safe because people can probably hack into it, especially if ur on a public wifi, and it just doesn't seem right using technology this advanced while depending on your phone. Please comment me your opinions
