Wink Home Automation - Hub 2



When I started my Home Automation journey two years ago, I did a fair amount of research on what was available and what was compatible with things.  There are a couple of standards out there, but Wink seems to support most of them.  They were the ones I went with when I constructed my mancave.  I have two hubs currently.  A gen 1, which is in the house and a gen 2, which is in the barn.  I have the lights in the barn tied into the system now.  For example, if I want to turn on the big floodlights around the barn, I can just tell Alexa to turn them on and everything lights up like a prison break.  There are also other great things you can get... The garage door opener is tied into the system, so I can use my phone to open the door.  Apparently, Alexa support is coming soon so I can just tell Alexa to open the door.  Alarms, door sensors, motion sensor, dimmer switches, the smoke detector, Alexa, Hue Lights, all sorts of things.  I'm pretty happy with it and will be expanding the amount of compatible switches and dimmers I add.
