Wink Hub 2

It has been quite some time since I’ve written about home automation.  As my current system (iVera) is struggling, I felt it’s a perfect time to research newer systems.  I’ve used this hub and app for four years to turn on my lights, unlock/lock my door, and more; it’s an essential piece of technology for my independence.  While searching for a new hub, one of the main criteria I have is to find one with the most connectivity.  From what I’ve gathered, the new Wink Hub 2 offers the most connectivity on the market.

Countless smart home brands and devices have been introduced over the past couple of years.  Some of the brands include Nest, GE, Philips, Honeywell, and more.  If you’ve used any of these, you probably already know that you have to control them from separate apps and/or systems.  The Wink Hub 2 has been designed to simplify your smart home by connecting all of these brands together, making your smart home even smarter!  Click here to learn more about the different products and brands that work with Wink 2.
