I’ve only been on the ST platform since the day that the V2 was released… well, not actually… I bought my hub that day, but it took a bit to get here.
I’m a Wink refugee here in ST land. I have to say, I am so very much more impressed with ST than I ever was with Wink. But, I can say this about Wink… the little bit that it did, it did pretty ok. As in it did work… just slowly and it didn’t do a whole lot. I was really glad about the integration with Echo. Especially since Echo was my first piece of equipment in the HA world. I was incredibly disappointed that I could not dim my lights with Wink. At that time, the only devices I had were light bulbs. Now, that I’m with ST I have bulbs, motion, switches, plug-in modules, and open/close sensors with temp. I also plan on doing a whole lot more.
But, in light of the problems that have been plaguing so many this past week, coupled with the very minimal (aka almost non-existent) communication from ST via both email and this forum, I have been rethinking the amount of money that I have planned to invest over the next couple of weeks. Not saying that I’m ditching the platform, as I have no intention of doing that. But, some things have made me question my trust level with them. So, I’m going to tread lightly until that trust is rebuilt.
And on to the purpose of this entire post…
How many of you are using a hybrid system using multiple hubs? Is anyone using ST along with Hue and Wink?
And… has anyone else seen the most recent news release by Wink? It seems that even though they entered bankruptcy they are making some pretty good changes.
