At the annual Consumer Electronics Show, Belkin unveiled several new updates to its HomeKit-enabled Wemo line, including an all-new HomeKit Secure Video smart doorbell. The new Wemo Smart Video Doorbell has a large 178-degree field of view and a 4MP sensor that can record 1080P video. It features enhanced night vision and is powered by 16-24 V AC transformers rated at 30 VA or higher. Since it supports Apple HomeKit Secure Video, it can record video on iCloud and does not require a third party subscription to use. Video is analyzed locally by a user's Home Hub. Users can also designate activity zones to reduce unwanted notifications. Recording can be triggered by different types of movements, such as people, vehicles, animals or packages. Users can install the doorbell themselves, or they can get professional installation through OnTech, which Belkin has partnered with. In addition to the Smart Video Doorbell, Belkin is doubling its support for Matter over Thread. The company is introducing new versions of its Wemo Smart Plug, Wemo Smart Switch, and Wemo Smart Dimmer that support Thread and Matter. These will be launched in 25 countries later this year after the Matter standard is released. Finally, Belkin has just started the update process for its Wemo Stage Scene Controller to enable support for Thread. The rollout is being phased in and full implementation is expected to be completed before the end of the month.
