I Think I Can… I Think I Can…

Hey Stephen, would you mind following back? … AGAIN?!

WeMo Switch + Motion

What an interesting week!  I noticed a message pop up on my Twitter feed asking me to follow them.  Sound familiar?  Yup!  Just like my previous post about ABC’s Selfie TV show noticing my tweet, apparently someone else has too!  This time it’s the fine people at WeM0, a line of home automation products from Belkin.  I’ve already written about their WeMo enabled Crock-Pot, and tweeted about some of the different switches that they make.  We currently own two of the standard WeMo switches, and they’re great.  We have our TV and a lamp hooked up to them, and we can turn them on or off from anywhere with an internet connection.  Trust me when I say this… a certain 12 year old in the house is convinced that the TV is going on the fritz, or that there’s a ghost.  I mean, how could it possibly be ME turning it off and on?  I was at work!  😉

But I digress.
Apparently WeMo would like to send me a free WeMo Switch + Motion, if I’d be willing to make a video of how it could be used for Hallowe’en!  How awesome is that?!  My brain is already spinning with ideas.  This switch is motion-activated, so anyone coming up the driveway is going to be met by something… scary!
I can’t wait!

@smbelyea Hey Stephen, would you mind following back? Got a question for you… (You’ve done this DM thing before!)

Thanks! That was fast! We’d like to send you a free WEMO Switch + Motion, if you’d be so kind as to make a brief home video showing how…

2/2 …you could use them for Halloween! (Maybe a way to surprise trick or treaters?) If you’re interested, send us your shipping info!

Absolutely!  And Thank you!

Fantastic! (Don’t forget phone + email, too, just in case.) And you’re most welcome 🙂   Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

This will be fun! (I already torment the kids with the regular switch. I had them convinced the TV was on the fritz. They still don’t know)

Haha! Shades of “Poltergeist”! Oh, you’re devious! Can’t wait!! 😀
