    Question Smart socket Compatible with IFTTT and Homekit

    I'm looking for either a plug in socket or socket faceplate that I can use for my garden lighting. I'm after something that can be controlled by both IFTTT and Apple Homekit. The socket is for inside the shed so indoor use is fine. Any recommendations? Thanks.
