No Dimmer? Really?
Earlier today I finally got around to installing a couple of Belkin’s WiFi-connected wall-mounted WeMo switches. I’ve been excited about the prospect of IFTTT integration and triggering the lights remotely - but ended up deeply disappointed by the lack of dimming functionality in the switch.
What was Belkin thinking? How could a product manager let this get out the door? There’s nothing worse than taking the time to buy and install an expensive product that delivers on several dimensions - solid industrial design, good packaging, easy-to-use software, and personalization capabilities as shown above - but then fails to live up to the product promise of customization that a cheap, dumb dimmer switch has delivered for decades.
If I wasn’t about to test out the IFTTT functionality, I’d probably be ripping the WeMo switches out of the wall right now.
