Can this wall switch control other WeMo Devices such as the WeMo Plug?

I understand that this switch becomes controllable via the web to control the plug on the end of the switch, but can it be programmed to activate other plugs as well via other WeMo devices?

    By itself, no.

    But as of April, the Light Switch now supports a "long press" trigger for IFTTT (If This, Then That). You can use this trigger to activate nearly any action within a 'recipe' (as IFTTT calls them), including turning on other Wemo switches (or Phillips Hue lights, or posting to Facebook that you're running late for work, and so on).

    I'm getting this information from the App's Version History update on April 17, 2014 -- I don't own the wall switch myself, so I'm not sure if there is an option to use the long-press directly within the Wemo app.
