Belkin’s WeMo line of connected outlets, motion sensors and wireless switches has been a solid solution for building out a (relatively basic) home-automation system on the cheap, and now there’s a new product to add to the mix. The WeMo Insight Switch can turn lights and appliances on and off just like its older sibling, but this year’s flavor is significantly smaller and more powerful, too. The Insight adds a nifty consumption-tracking feature, letting you monitor uptime and electricity usage for connected devices. Through the bundled Android or iOS app, you can see how long your television, washing machine or space heater have been operating, and just how much they’ll cost you each month. WeMo Insight is available today for $60.
