LAS VEGAS NV, USA –(BUSINESS WIRE)–Continuing to expand its award-winning Internet of Things ecosystem, WeMo?? announced a group of new home sensors at the 2015 International CES.

Featuring?? WeMo Water, a window and door sensor, personal keychain sensor, room motion sensor and alarm sensor, the WeMo sensors are designed to make the entire home smarter, more intuitive and more contextually aware.

The new sensors were displaed at CES Unveiled, and during CES at the Belkin International booth, number 30551, in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

WeMo Sensors

WeMo???s new home sensors allow users to monitor their entire home from anywhere using a mobile device and the WeMo Link, a Wi-Fi-to-Zigbee bridge that connects the sensors to the home???s wireless network.

Subscription-free and a snap to install and use, the four new WeMo sensors provide peace of mind within the home and can alert users when things are amiss.

Through the WeMo app, users can set schedules and receive alerts and notifications, as well as program the sensors as triggers to activate other WeMo devices.

With a one-year battery life, WeMo Sensors provide long lasting home awareness.

WeMo Water with Echo Technology (F7C042)

Representing the next generation of WeMo sensors, WeMo Water with Echo Technology uses advanced machine learning algorithms to provide unprecedented insight into household water usage.

From a single sensor attached at one point on the home???s plumbing system, WeMo Water monitors, analyzes and relays information about water consumption throughout the entire home.

WeMo Water works by sensing and analyzing the pressure change vibrations caused by water events such as turning on a faucet or flushing a toilet, and does not require the WeMo Link.

WeMo Water can accurately calculate water consumption duration and cost per object or even alert users to potentially devastating damages and leaks. Beyond water and cost savings advantages,

WeMo Water opens the door for using the home???s existing infrastructure to create predictive, anticipatory automation that lives up to the full promise of the connected home.

Currently undergoing field trials, a sneak peak of WeMo Water???s consumer applications will be on display at the 2015 International CES.
