The Hub 2 makes SwitchBot products Matter-compatible, enabling users to control their devices via Matter on Apple Home and Google Home.

For instance, you can add a variety of infrared remotes to the SwitchBot app. This feature lets you control home appliances like TVs and air conditioners with voice commands via Alexa or Siri.
The Hub 2 can also trigger preset scenes in the SwitchBot app and control other SwitchBot ecosystem products, such as the SwitchBot Bot and the SwitchBot Curtain.
And the company has more products in the pipeline to support Matter in the coming months.
