I read that, too. Belkin just sent me a survey about WeMo devices and I mentioned my displeasure at every opportunity
I agree about the need for Wemo products to be made Homekit compatable asap
LOL@ Homekit. Almost 2 year after its announcement HK & Apple are nowhere as Amazon & Google are starting to run away with a hub while companies like Belkin & Wink are ramping up to improve their offering.
Apple fans are the ultimate gas & go (plug & play) amateurs.
I have to wonder what people like you get out of that kind of snark. Does it make you think you are better than me? Apple may not always be first with things but they always end up with the things most people covet. I would rather have the best than the first or the cheapest. Apple is coming out with a competitor to the Echo and I am confident that it will be better because that's always the way it turns out in the end.
Since Apple has announced that they are opening the Siri API for developers, we may see the Wemo app have the ability to control our Wemo devices.
