One of the most useful features of automated switches is the ability to link them together so that they act in unison (virtual 3-way configuration) for places that are not wired for 3-way or where you want ceiling fixtures and plug-in lamps to work together off a single switch.

Problem is the descriptions of products by Wemo, TP-Link and similar are pretty short on details so I can't confirm if they can be linked together or not. Can anybody who uses these devices confirm if they can be linked together to operate in unison?
