WeMo Mini Smart Outlet

Review date: 11/01/2018

Remember the clapper? That wonderful device from last century that turned your lights on and off with clap of your hands. It’s 2018 and the clapper is all grown up into a “connected smart plug.” Plug the outlet into your wall and you can control it with your voice using Alexa or Google Assistant, set up custom on/off schedules on a phone app, even randomize your lights going on and off to make it look like you're home. All that’s missing is the catchy jingle — Clap on, clap off…

What could happen if something goes wrong

Someone could learn your daily routine based on when you turn things on and off in your home. That could be used against you.
