Some smart devices, outlets, thermostats etc require a central hub to all connect to for controlling.

Thanks OP I may pick one up, even though it has a lot of bad amazon reviews. I don't need Alexa connection or timer function so I may be ok.

Bought two yesterday, opened one and can't connect to it. POS, buyer beware. Mine are both going back tomorrow.

I found my local Walmart has it for $7, see the attached picture

the google assistant feature is basically useless, as it requires the phone to be near the switch, as it connects directly to your phone via Bluetooth (as oppose to connect to your home wifi)
Also, you will have to say "ask switch mate to" before every command. such as "ask switch mate to turn on kitchen light", and that still wont work most of the times.
(you may be able to use a spare old phone as a dedicated relay/hub however)
