HOOBS features a small device that works as a true smart home bridge. It connects over 2,000 accessories with either Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or Apple HomeKit. This bridge successfully closes the gaps between brands and compatibility, which is music to the hears of home automation fans.
The best part of getting the HOOBS box is that it works as a plug-and-play starter kit; it has everything you need to truly harmonize all your incompatible smart devices. Once you get it installed and connected to a network, you can start adding your smart devices and searching for plugins.
HOOBS actually stands for Homebridge out of the box. It's a more user-friendly option for users that prefer a turnkey solution to a smart home bridge.
Users can use plugins available for HOOBS and can install, update, or remove plugins from their library. Developers can create plugins that work with HOOBS to connect different devices, which means there are thousands of plugins to search among.
HOOBS also runs locally on your network, keeping your information more secure.
You also can buy a HOOBS microSD to use with your Raspberry Pi, or simply download the image for a donation.
