A few years back, we introduced Wink as a great way to bring all of your smart home devices under one device, be it the app or your Wink hub. In this post, I'll go over a great new wall-mounted touch screen device that replaces your existing wall switch and controls all of your smart home devices controlled by the Wink apps.
This makes it even handier to control your home while you are there instead of having to use your smart device. Or, you can let anyone inside control things in your home that is connected. In other words, WINK's Relay makes having a smart home even easier at your fingertips.
The Wink Relay works as more than just a control center for your smart home devices. Other than just controlling the temperature or unlocking the front door for someone, it also acts (if you use more than one Relay) as an intercom system throughout your home!
At minimum, all you need is an existing wi-fi network, and a neutral wire to hardwire into your home's electrical system. Always work with unenergized wire if you attempt to do this. The best way to install the Wink Relay is to install it in replacement of an existing light switch.
Since it works on Bluetooth and ZigBee technologies and more...this maybe the handiest thing you'll use for all your smart home devices. In fact, you can use that instead of your smart phone or tablet, saving battery and more time on those!
