Belkin introduced several smart home gadgets and sensors from WeMo at CES 2015. Perhaps the most exciting of those products is the newly conceptualized "Echo technology," a sensor which is designed to monitor the water and power consumption in a home.

By reading signatures, Echo is able to distinguish between which device is running in a home at any given time, whether it's the shower or the dishwasher. The sensors forward the information about both utilities to the WeMo app on users' smartphones, allowing them to keep better track of their usage.

Echo technology is a big step forward for Belkin, and for smart home technology as a whole, offering more insight and information on habits and consumption.
