Today's review is going to look at the Wink WNKHUB-2US 2 Smart home hub.
Let’s see if it lives up to the hype.
- Fast enough to be noticed by Wink and act on it
- Very friendly user interface
- Requires Wink app (Android/iOS) to make it react on external events.
- Wink app is not very rich yet on notifications (for the time being).
The Wink Smart Home Hub makes it incredibly easy to connect and control all your smart devices. With its built-in speaker, camera, and motion sensor, you can instantly see what's happening in and outside your home.
Plus, with the Wink app, you can control all your smart devices from anywhere. I like that the Wink Hub is a 2-in-1 hub and a controller all in one. The secondary controller allows for mounting in any room of the house or business.
Wink Hub works with the Wink app to quickly connect and configure all your favorite smart devices, making it simple to control locks, lights, thermostats, cameras, home security systems, smoke detectors and more. You can even connect any ZigBee, Z-Wave, Lutron Clear Connect or Kidde hub for added functionality.
To manage your smart devices, you use the Wink app. Set up shortcuts to control devices like lamps, thermostats and locks. Wink Hub 2 works with all major platforms including Alexa and Google Home. There's also a 300,000-square foot product coverage area, meaning the Wink Hub is fully certified for all US states. Wink Hub 2 is recommended by Wink.
The Wink Hub 2 is a good-looking piece of hardware that packs a huge punch. The best part is that it acts as a hub for all your connected devices with a touch of your smartphone and it gets smart as new products come out.
