Using the Wemo app, Siri commands, or the Home app, those in the Apple ecosystem can wirelessly control lamps, heaters, fans, or more with the smart plug. Belkin plans to launch the new Wemo WiFi Smart Plug in the spring of 2020, and it will be priced at $24.99.

Also new to Wemo is the Wemo Stage, a control accessory that can be programmed with up to six scenes or settings activated using short presses or long presses.

I REALLY wish companies would create Smart Plugs that had plugs to the sides. I rarely want the outlet straight out from the wall, I prefer to have it heading down the wall or to the side so I can place furniture nearby without hitting the cord coming off the plug.

This may be what you're looking for. I have 3 of them and they've been pretty good.

Yeah, I use those APC surge protectors that fasten directly to the outlet, and they have 6 side outlets which are terrific.
