The $50 Wemo Dimmer Light Switch is back down to one of its best prices yet

The Wemo Dimmer Switch (opens in new tab) is currently on sale for $49.99 at Amazon. Though it sells for $80 regularly, it's more common to find it priced around $67 on average there. We saw this same last week price-matching a one-day sale at Best Buy (opens in new tab). the price jumped back up at the end of the day, so it's very likely this price won't last for much longer than that today either.

You can control this switch from the wall, the Wemo app, and your Alexa (opens in new tab) or Google Assistant device (opens in new tab). You don't need anything special other than Wi-Fi. With this dimmer, you can schedule your lights to do what you want. Adjust them with the sunset or sunrise. Turn off your lights with your phone when you're at work and realize you forgot to — or from bed when you're like me and being extra lazy. Set your lights to turn on slowly and help you wake up. These things are awesome, and once you get one you'll wish you'd had it sooner.

This switch will calibrate to your current lightbulbs to prevent flickering and maximize the dimming range. You can also pair it with Nest (opens in new tab) to help detect when you're home or away and automate your lights. It requires a neutral wire and will work with any one-way connection light switch. Don't forget, you can also add HomeKit support with this (opens in new tab) WeMo Bridge. Just simply connect it to your router, get it set up, and then you can use Apple's Home app or Siri to control the plugs.

At Amazon, this smart dimmer received 3.7 out of 5 stars based on almost 12,000 customer reviews (opens in new tab).
