Hook Switch


The hook component allows you to control the Hook Smart Home Hub from within Home Assistant.

Hook allows you to control cheap mains electrical outlets, like these ones at Amazon.

In short, Hook is an RF to Wi-Fi bridge, controlling devices that receive commands at 315MHz and 433MHz. Unfortunately, this does not allow Hook to determine if the command was successful, so the state is assumed.

Hook provides a simple REST API. This Home Assistant component reads in devices that have been set up in the official app.

Configure with either your username/password or your API token for the official app.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
-  platform: hook
   username: <email address>
   password: !secret hook

Or

# Example configuration.yaml entry
-  platform: hook
   token: <your API token>

Extra debug logging is available, if you need it.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
logger:
  default: error
  logs:
    homeassistant.components.switch.hook: debug
