The Belkin WeMo switch on the other hand provides the smartness of the LED bulb to almost every regular electrical appliances plugged into it. Apart from turning on or off from the app, users can even schedule the time of operation remotely from any part of the world as long as you’re hooked over the internet.

The AeoTec Siren (Gen 5) is a siren made for home safety and warn users from dangers like home intrusions,fire hazards,emergencies and falls.
While, SmartThings Hub has now been given the ability to pair with these products (and a whole lot more), the same products can soon be controlled from Samsung’s range of Tizen powered Smart TVs as Samsung is in the works of making a SmartThings Hub like device that can be hooked to its TVs.
