If you’ve ever been curious just how much power your various appliances and electronics are using, Belkin’s WeMo Insight Switch can monitor your energy usage, and even turn devices on or off from anywhere in the world.
Functionally, the Insight Switch is no different than a standard Belkin WeMo switch. Just plug one in between a wall outlet and the device of your choice, and you’ll be able to turn it on or off from your smartphone or Amazon Echo, and even create automatic schedules. The difference is that the Insight will monitor your device’s energy use, and even calculate its monthly cost on your power bill. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that the Insight will completely pay for itself, but it can certainly make you more mindful of what goes into your monthly bill.
Amazon will sell you an Insight for just $40 today, which is within a few cents of an all-time low, and actually $20 less than the standard WeMo Switch. We aren’t sure how long this deal will last though, so lock in your order, and start saving power. [Belkin WeMo Insight Switch, $40]
