[quote] switch hub brands[/quote] I read last night that wink doesn't do the coding work for support until a brand pays them to do it... That's why you don't have Sonos for example. Is that true? If so I might reconsider this thing which sucks because I threw the box away. ...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - bryso
I've always wondered about that but that makes a ton of sense. Have any of you guys ever heard of land scaping lights the change colors and can connect to wink or etc? I want up lights that turn purple and gold on gameday. It's a weird hobby...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - bryso
I know it's just an announcement but the lack of Lutron was the deciding factor that made me go with wink. Now that it's allegedly coming im wondering if I picked wrong. Seems like smart things just has more behind it in terms of support. ...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - bryso
I'm debating on buying one of these. Do you guys like the particular brand you have? I'm considering waiting but I don't know what innovative new feature could possibly come out for a door lock so I may as well do it now. Assuming they are reliable. ...
