re: Anyone else preorder the Galaxy S8? - RickAstley
I received my Galaxy S8 on the 20th. Overall, I am enjoying the phone. It's fast, sleek, and it's certainly keeping me entertained compared to the galaxy S5. The one downside I have experienced is either delayed or no reception of text messages. I am unsure if it is a phone issue or cellular provide...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley
Nice thank you. I still don't know how you stumbled into the jackpot of hue clearance deals. I had to stash my color starter kit in a deep freeze to get it for $50.03. It had spider wire security on it, so I made off with it at that price. When I get a little more time on my hands, I am really go...

For those of us that are still learning, where is the lock cabinet usually? I know that there are electronics stashed behind customer service, but they tend to be on top of a shelf that is out in the open....

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley
I've searched up and down for 2nd gen hue products at Home Depot and so far I was only able to score the color start kit (no complaints) on clearance. Some of the local Walmart's have dropped the hue 2nd gen color starter kits from $178 to $120. Doesn't compare to $50.03, but worth a look for anyone...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley
I found one hue gen 2 color ambience starter kit for $50.03. Couldn't find anything else. I did get two wink hubs for $.01 recently. I had a work trip in Memphis, TN recently. While there I went to check out their inventory at home depot, and Wink Hubs were $37 there. I am thoroughly confused no...

re: Should I get galaxy s7 or wait on s8? - RickAstley
Samsung releases their new galaxies usually during the Spring. I'd suggest holding out if you can, considering the new releases are not to far off. I'm going to be upgrading this year and I am waiting for the newest generation. However, there's the exploding factor to consider. S7 has proven to b...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley
Bed Bath & Beyond is still selling iHome Smart Plugs for $19.99. If you can scrounge up some coupons, you can get those for a bit cheaper. I got 2 earlier for $32 total. I'm slowly building my smart home off of discounted stock. Thanks mctiger for the home depot insight BTW :usa:...

re: Home automation : where do I start? - RickAstley
Your wink is bricked due to a security update that was rolled out a year or 2 ago. You can call wink support and get a shipping label for repair. I'd say go forward with getting it fixed. At the worst, you can sell the hub on ebay after it is repaired. Otherwise, the hub is a space filler...

I contribute to my Roth IRA and 401k bimonthly. I contribute to my taxable account once a month (did the taxable account for a year and took a break for the past 2. Resumed contributions last fall). I've been investing for 5 years now and have re-balanced only once, which was end of 2015. I plan to ...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley
I am still broadening the scope of my smart tech knowledge. Does Sense measure total power consumption of your home? I saw where the Belkin Wemo Switch is being replaced with a model very similar to iHome's smartplug. I haven't decided how they are charging $35 for the mini-plug and $40 for the o...

[quote]Ihome plug now 19.99 clearance at BB&B[/quote] Can you pair the iHome smart plugs with your Wink hub? $20 is a reasonable price for smart plugs, but the newer plugs are a bit more interesting. Belkin's Wemo Insight plug includes energy monitoring and is $10 more than their base plug, Wemo ...
