As a busy lifestyle blogger and mom of four teenagers, including 16 year-old triplets, family life can be pretty erratic. There is more than one not-me living here that is forever forgetting to turn off lights and other electronics when dashing out of the house. So, when I discover a tool that can help put some sanity back into this crazy life full of surprises and manage my household more efficiently, I naturally want to share it with readers. Such is the case with the Belkin WeMo Switch available from Verizon Wireless that I had the opportunity to test and review for Mommy Blog Expert.

This clip provides an overview of how it works...
This is so simple and fast to set up and use, it is hard to believe it does so much. As long as there is wifi access and the device is installed near enough to pick up a strong signal in your home, it should work. The WeMo Switch is truly a plugin -- requiring absolutely no technical expertise, all you do is plug it into a wall outlet and then plug in what ever home appliance you would like to operate remotely when you are away.

This device can be moved from outlet to outlet to be used with different appliances, but you will need to go back into the app and reset it up if you move it to plug into a different outlet. Another thing to keep in mind is that if you want to have control over two or more household electrical gadgets you'll need a WeMo switch for each separate appliance.
