    HomeKit App is the problem

    • Written by nicholas M from Olathe

    The plug works just fine. The problem I have with this is the HomeKit app capabilities or lack there of. Says no hub required, that's a lie. It requires a hub in order for you to use the automation portion in the app and to access it when you are not home. Most smart plugs can be accessed away from home and can be automated without a hub. This one cannot. The hub has to be either an Apple TV or an iPad. I know most people that have Apple products have one of these but I do not. I just have the iPhone8, which should be more than capable to be the hub. Other plugs have all the capabilities under one app without a hub. Seems like Apple is a little behind on this one.
