Belkin Wemo Mini updated with HomeKit support

Belkin has released the Wemo bridge to add support for HomeKit and now the company has updated the Wemo Mini smart plug with Apple HomeKit support, no bridge or hub required to pair it

Since Belkin released the Wemo bridge, I have been trying to get my hands on one in the UK to test with the Wemo smart plug, but it’s not currently not released here yet, but neither is the Wemo Mini smart plug.

so Belkin adding HomeKit support to the Wemo Mini could mean we could see it added to other products without the HomeKit Bridge in the near future including the Wemo Insight switch.

In order to get the update for HomeKit support, you’ll need to download the latest version of the Wemo app and install a firmware update to your Wemo Mini, but please note the Wemo Mini is currently on available in the US at present.
