WeMo® a home automation ecosystem by Belkin International, and Holmes® today announced availability of the new Holmes® Smart Humidifier enabled with WeMo.

The WeMo-enabled humidifier allows users to easily check and maintain optimum humidity levels, set schedules, and receive alerts and reminders through the WeMo app. The WeMo app also sends low water and filter replacement notifications and even allows users to purchase new filters through an in-app purchase for care-free maintenance. The humidifier works with the entire WeMo product ecosystem, which allows users to program custom settings and actions through the same app as their other WeMo devices and lighting solutions. For example, set the bedroom lights to turn off and the humidifier to turn on at the same time every evening to simplify nighttime routines.

With 60 hours of runtime and a four-gallon capacity, the Holmes® Smart Humidifier enabled by WeMo easily provides humidity for an entire home up to 2,500 square feet and keeps the whole family comfortable for longer without refilling the water tank. The humidifier also features five different settings for customized comfort, an automatic shut-off, dry-out mode, plus water refill and check filter indicators for easy maintenance and usage.

“Designed with the same approachability and ease-of-use that is the hallmark of all WeMo products, the Holmes® Smart Humidifier is the first smartphone controllable humidifier and the first WeMo-enabled product designed solely for household comfort,” said Ohad Zeira, director of product management for WeMo. “Our collaboration with Jarden and the Holmes® brand helps further integrate WeMo into more parts of the home and we look forward to introducing additional environmental products that continue that trend this fall.”

“With the mercury registering triple digit temperatures, it’s easy to forget that winter is just around the corner, but now the perfect time to prepare for the cold, dry weather ahead,” said Alejandro Pena, president of JCS USA. “Thanks to WeMo, we’ve created the first humidifier that not only alerts your phone when the water is low or the filter needs replacing, but also allows you to buy new filters right then and there through the app.”

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
