You need the Simple Hub Licence. Running the simple control app on an ipad / iphone is enough. Actually, for me, running it on the ios device is the best way. You have to leave the ios device in guided access mode and not let it go to sleep though.

I used to run the simple hub service on a mac. The problem is that some ip device (receiver, projector) will accept one connection. So, if the ios device is off / in sleep mode, and you initiate an alexa command, the command comes from the hub. Now, you wake the ios device and initiate a command... nothing happens. The connection to the receiver/projector from the mac is still active. There is no provision to globally route all commands to go through the hub.
