Belkin has announced an update to its WeMo app that brings IFTTT recipe support to its connected LED lightbulbs.
In the coming update, WeMo LED lightbulb users will be able to create IFTTT recipes for a wide variety of situations, such as turning the lights on when a user pulls into their driveway, or flashing the lights when you receive a tweet (yes, that's a thing).

Belkin has announced that its WeMo Smart LED Bulbs, which can be controlled by its Android app, are now on sale in the US and Canada, both as individual bulbs as well as in a Starter Kit that includes a WeMo Link which can control up to 50 of those lights.
Belkin has updated their WeMo home automation apps for iOS and Android with a few new features. Chief among them is a long-press option for their Light Switch, which is recognizable through the popular IFTTT service. There are also new controls to recognize sunrise and sunset, and an away mode which flips the lights on and off randomly to make it look like someone’s home.
Looks like Amazon's deals just keep coming. As part of its Cyber Monday Deals Week, Amazon is offering the Belkin WeMo light switch for $39.99. That's about $10, or 20 percent, off the normal price.
