Memory: 512 MBRating: 4Comment A friend's parents got a Wink hub and and deadbolt lock. They installed the lock but asked for me to help set it up. This was a very user friendly and easy set up. Linking the lock was a very smooth transaction and adding users and codes for lock was simple. Just a few things that would make this a better product. Some setting up was left to "figure" it out. Not a lot of description on how to however it does have a website and number to call if help is needed. A manual of some sort even available through app would be nice for those who rather do it then call in. Also the ability to change a code rather then delete it and reenter over again would be great. However this seems to be because of how the programming works to start. Not a deal breaker more of convenience here. Have not added anything else but the short experience already makes this a highly rated product to have in any home.Name Jamie BusheyProduct RecommendedRating: 4Comment Great design and great functionality. This Hub is very easy to install and setup with switches and dimmers. I recommend adding the wink relays to it as central pads to operate lights and devices individual or in scenes. I guess the great looking relays act as repeaters too. I use 4 of them and have no connectivity issues experienced in my widely spread network.
The Wink Hub2 lists only a few suppliers of switches and dimmers in their compatibility list. Don't worry, I registered appr. 50 Dragon Tec dimmers and switches and GE devices easily under 'Leviton' or other other brands at the Hub2.
Downside is I could not register the Honeywell Thermostats at the Hub even though that model is listed in the compatibility list. It is not clear if it is Wink or HW related. Still trying to find a solution.
I would like to setup so called 'robots' but yet could not figure out how. There is no description. Wink should provide a manual how to setup und use the entire functionality. I would rate 5 stars with such a manual!Name Hans-Bernd VeltmaatProduct Recommended
