I received a WInk hub as a gift and have not been happy with its performance. I have several GE Link LED’s, so I needed a hub that would be compatible with them. Smart Things has received a lot of positive reviews, so here I am!
Since I travel a bit, it was important to me that I could control my lighting when I’m not at home. The problem is, when there is a power outage, the Wink hub doesn’t reconnect to my wifi router when power is restored. I have to be home to manually unplug and plug the hub back in. My main problem with this is, when power is restored, every light in my house goes on and I can’t remotely control them until I can get home to manually reset the hub. When I’m out of town this is a bad thing for me because, if it happens in the early morning hours or during the day, it looks as if no one is home when all the lights are on.
Wink tells me that this is a function of all similar hubs. Well, I thought I’d check that out for myself. If this is true, it’s a real problem for me.
Thanks for your help.
