Hook is a smart home hub for remote control outlets and bulb sockets. With Hook, you can now inexpensively control lights and appliances with the App, IFTTT, Amazon Echo and Google Home. This is Smart Home - on a Budget! Hook does not work with 315MHz devices, IR devices like TV and Ceiling fans. If you have any questions regarding compatibility, please refer to the product website or email the support team before making the purchase. Hook works over WiFi and is powered by the Particle P1 platform, so you can count on Hook to be always connected to the internet. Since Hook is connected to the internet, you can control Hook from anywhere in the world as long your phone is connected to a data/WiFi network. Hook does not officially work with Homekit but check out the product web page for more details on how to enable Siri to control your Hook devices.
