a home automation ecosystem by Belkin International, and Holmes®
today announced availability of the new Holmes®
Smart Humidifier enabled with WeMo. The second product stemming from
collaboration between Belkin International and Jarden Consumer
Solutions, the smart humidifier features WeMo technology built-in and
allows consumers to adjust, manage and maintain their home environment
from anywhere using a smartphone or tablet.

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.”
