I recently purchased a set of RF Remote power switches which can be retrofitted in to smart switches to work with Siri and Alexa, but it is good to know that these types of switches are coming down in price and can be used to retrofit older homes on an ad hoc basis. — Douglas
At $35, the new WeMo Mini is competitively priced, and the smaller design won't block adjacent outlets. Native compatibility with IFTTT, Google Home, and Amazon's Alexa make it one of the most well-connected smart plugs you can buy.
WeMo gear won't work with Apple HomeKit (or with Siri), and the WeMo app is still woefully glitchy at times.
THE BOTTOM LINE
WeMo's always been a solid smart home starting point, and at just $35, the WeMo Mini is the line's best offering yet.
