Belkin International Announces New Keyboards for the iPad Air 2, QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard and QODE Ultimate Keyboard

Belkin International announced availability of its new keyboards for the iPad Air 2, the QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard and the QODE Ultimate Keyboard. Belkin's most advanced iPad keyboards to date, both keyboards are designed specifically for the iPad Air 2 and are available exclusively at AT&T and Belkin.com. Designed for users who want both a protective case and a keyboard, but not always at the same time, the QODE Ultimate Pro features a detachable back case that makes it simple to remove from the keyboard. The case portion is compatible with the Apple Smart Cover for full dual-sided protection when the keyboard isn't in use. Thanks to its detachable case, the QODE Ultimate Pro also features both portrait or landscape modes for more viewing options than traditional clamshell keyboard cases. Belkin completely redesigned the keyboard layout of the QODE Ultimate Pro, making it the first iPad keyboard case on the market with the same number of keys as a laptop keyboard for increased functionality. Belkin also increased the width of the keycap shape and improved key pitch for a faster, more accurate and more comfortable typing experience. A first for the QODE keyboard line, the Ultimate Pro features a backlit keyboard with three brightness levels for easier typing in darkness or low light. The QODE Ultimate Pro's Bluetooth® Smart Keyboard seamlessly pairs up to two devices at once and features a smart-sensing technology that automatically turns the keyboard on when the iPad Air is docked and off when closed, even when used as a standalone keyboard. The auto on/off feature helps prevent battery drainage and contributes to the Ultimate Pro's impressive battery life of up to one year on a single charge. QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air 2 (F5L176) - MSRP - $149.99. The QODE Ultimate Pro Keyboard for iPad Air 2 and QODE Ultimate Keyboard for iPad Air 2 are available now at ATT.com and Belkin.com, and will be available in AT&T Stores on December 6, 2014.

WeMo Announces Availability of Three New WeMo-Enabled Holmes Products

WeMo announced availability of three new WeMo-enabled Holmes products, the Holmes Smart Air Purifier with WeMo and two Holmes Smart Heaters with WeMo. The latest from a line of smart home and kitchen products, the smart devices feature built-in WeMo technology and allow consumers to adjust, manage and maintain their home environment from anywhere using a smartphone or tablet. The Holmes Smart Air Purifier with WeMo gives users the ability to control their home's air quality from anywhere via any smart device. Monitor air quality, adjust fan settings, turn on/off remotely, manage the ionizer, and receive notifications all from the WeMo app. The WeMo app also lets users create a week's worth of daily run times so the air stays fresh whenever needed without wasting electricity or filter life. When the filters need replacing, the WeMo app sends an alert along with a direct link for reordering, which takes the guesswork out of remember in which size filter to order and makes it easy to always have clean, fresh air on demand. Aside from its embedded WeMo functionality, the Holmes Smart Air Purifier also features True HEPA filtering capabilities, including an optional ionizer to remove up to 99.97% of airborne allergies from the air. It quietly reduces common household odors and provides relief from irritants such as pollen, dust, mold, pet dander and smoke so the whole family can breathe easily. The new Holmes Smart Heaters Enabled with WeMo provide reliable heat for different sized rooms and can be adjusted through the WeMo app from any smart device. Turn off, monitor and adjust the temperature from anywhere, or program a daily schedule so rooms are always at the perfect temperature at the perfect time. Additionally, the Holmes Smart Heaters gives users the added peace of mind of never having to worry if the heater was left on by accident. Available in two sizes (1000 Watt large room and 1500 Watt extra-large room) the WeMo-enabled Holmes Smart Heaters feature four temperature settings: High, Low, EcoSmart and Frost Protect. The EcoSmart setting cycles between high and low to keep the temperature comfortable while helping to save money and electricity, while the Frost Protect setting helps prevent rooms from dipping below freezing by activating the heating element only when the room temperature goes below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Leaving the heater in Frost Protect also enables users to leave the heating element off for most of the day, but maintain the ability to activate the heat remotely when the need arises.

Belkin International and TCP Announce Relationship to Add WeMo Capability to TCP LED Lighting Solutions

Belkin International and Technical Consumer Products, Inc. announced a relationship that will include WeMo(R) home automation support to the TCP lineup of LED lighting solutions. TCP and Belkin have come together to provide TCP light bulbs for home wireless networks where select retailers specify the Belkin WeMo ecosystem of home automation products. The TCP light bulbs will connect to the WeMo ecosystem through the WeMo Link that will connect the TCP light bulbs to the home's wireless network so they can work with other WeMo products, including the WeMo Light Switch, WeMo Insight Switch and NetCam HD+. Controlled with the WeMo app, the TCP LED bulbs will also work with IFTTT, which connects them to other web-based services and applications such as Facebook, SMS, Gmail, Calendar, etc. to perform custom tasks or trigger events. For example, consumers can program the bulbs to turn on when they get a text from their kids or even set up an IFTTT recipe to have the bulbs turn on when their favorite sport team wins their game.
