With all of the V2 functionality misses and instability issues over the last week with reboot request from ST, constant network dropping, etc… the WAF plummeted and the purse strings opened to buy Wink to run in parallel. Should be interesting as I’ll run one floor of the House on ST and then second floor on Wink - she decides which to keep.
Before the trashing starts on Wink - it was her suggestion based upon her research as perhaps consumer functionality versus ST’s technology focus. We come from Revolv (which she LOVED), Hardwire Creston (bulletproof but she said ugly UI) and prior to that x10 - so we understand the nature of the technology. But, to her point — Revolv worked great in our current house setup and our Hue bridge and Sonos (yes, both proprietary) work great.
So I’m very much looking forward to this parallel test. It is not feature / function tech out … It’s simple WAF decision on which can RELIABLY turn lights on and off, lock the doors if both phones outside a radius, etc. I ordered popcorn!
