Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware - to use this, you will need to spend 5 US$ As of 20 May 2020, you will need to spend 5$US/month to use this hub + all the add on. There are other alternatives that have no monthly cost; Samsung Hub’s come yo mind. This hub made it to the dangerous waste bin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Company Bricked EVERYONE'S Wink Hub at once! I purchased this smart home hub in May 2019. I set it up with all of my devices using the Wink mobile app, as well as various automations. It worked about 80% of the time and only required a hard reboot three times during the year (once when I wasn't home and couldn't access it). Then, on May 6, 2020, Wink quietly announced in their blog that all customers MUST subscription to a new $5 / month Wink subscription by May 13, 2020 (7 days warning), otherwise, they will no longer be able to use the hub that they paid for. No exceptions. This is horribly bad business practice. This company should not be trusted. Find a better hub!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WAS a good device Wink was sold as not having monthly fees or contracts. Well the just sprung it on us that starting in just 1 week it won’t work unless we pay $5 per month. Sure it’s not a lot but to sell it as a no fee device then change their mind and only give us 1 week? Sounds like the desperate move of a company about to go bankrupt. Look elsewhere for your home automation needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hub 2 Not great for connecting to smart devices Easy to install BUT difficult to connect to any smart devices, even when directly beside it! I would not recommend this Hub!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy, Wink has gone out of business I have this device and it is now a door stop. The company has gone under and there is no support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, but might be a dead company. Easy to set up, eliminates hubs from various companies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from (Not so) Smart Hub Original Hub was able to ride out a power outage. Hub 2 lost connection with 6 of 7 lights. Lights drop out randomly and need constant attention. Product support through Wink SUCKS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I bought a wink hub 2 and 4 relays along with multiple other switches. After months of having issues with my wink system, wink has provided no answers and has decided to put me on the back burner. I have spoke with management at Wink with no help provided. Wink does not stand behind its products. Once you buy this hub you will be locked to Wink devices. Do yourself a favor and avoid getting stick with this system like I did. You will thank me later.

Two questions please: 1. Can the hub work independently without internet connection (in case of internet failure)? 2. Is a subscription required for connection to a server?

Asked by: ee l
It will not work without internet connectivity and it requires a monthly subscription.

I recently bought Schlage Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt, if i buy Wink Hub 2 Smart Home Hub, will i be able to access my deadbolt remotely or i still need to buy another adapter by schlage ?

Asked by: Dee S
Yes you will be able to access it remotely. No other adapters required. I have been using that setup for 2 years. Works great. Can open from your phone and program key codes remotely and receive alerts.

Home Depot have the Wink Hub 2 listed as "Product no longer available" and the Wink Gateway as "Clearance". According to the www.wink.com website, the Wink Hub 2 is the current product. Please explain.

Asked by: Green Phantom
Hey there, Every retailer is authorized to sell our products at whichever price they deem fit. The Wink Hub 2 was released last November, and we will continue to update and support the original Wink Hub just as we always have.
