Belkin on Monday shipped the new Wemo Smart Light Switch, compatible with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant.

The Wemo 3-Way Smart Light Switch works with single-pole and three-way connections, and can control both lights and ceiling fans, Belkin said. Significantly the product also works with existing single-, double-, and multi-switch rocker plates, and has its own 2.4-gigahertz Wi-Fi radio, so it can be managed remotely without a router hub.

The product turns conventional lights and fans into "smart" ones, intergrated into groups, scenes, and automations. This includes not just HomeKit, Alexa, and Assistant, but Web-based IFTTT applets and the Wemo iPhone app.

The switch further offers a 2-second long-press for turning everything on or off, and a proprietary "Away Mode" that will randomly turn gear on and off for security purposes.
