Do not buy wink products!
After investing in a Link starter kit and multiple additional bulbs, my system suddenly stopped working about a week ago. I tried everything, but after being unable to reconnect the Link hub to the network, I emailed support. I’ve been informed that since the Link Hub is no longer in production, this app no longer supports it. THEY ARE STILL SELLING THE LINK HUB ON THE WEBSITE. How can a company discontinue support for a product that they are still actively selling? And the solution was a tiny discount on an extremely more expensive starter kit. I’m done. Goodbye Wink.
Update: I read the developer feedback, and understand that unfortunately things do happen. However, when I contacted Wink regarding this issue (which I did before leaving feedback) I was offered an extremely small discount on their most expensive starter pack. Had I been offered any discount on a hub to correct this issue, I would have just ordered the hub and moved on. I did reply (twice) to Wink support to inquire about a discount on just the hub, and I have received absolutely no reply. Clearly they do not value their customers or they would have reached out before this incompatibility became an issue. As recent feedback indicates, I am not alone. C’mon Wink! Get it together!

Thanks for the feedback. The GE link hub was not made by Wink. This Was a GE product that they stopped supporting about 2 years ago. This means that they were not updating this product, and unfortunately and issue happened about a few weeks ago that caused issues with them connecting that we can not fix unless we have the rights to the GE link hub. Those lights that you got with the Link Starter kit will pair up with our Wink Hub, or Wink hub 2. Both of those Hubs are made by us and will provide a much more stable experience. We also do not sell the device on our website, if you click to buy it brings you to the Amazon.com, or Home depot web page. This will be taken down momentarily.
BEWARE-This Version Deactivates GE Quirky Starter Hub
I’ve had the GE Quirky start kit hub for 3 years+ without any issues and it has survived many losses of power over the years. This new app version disconnected the hub upon launching the app. Then when I tried to reconnect I get a screen saying the starter hub is no longer in production and therefore cannot connect to this app version. What??? Something working fine gets booted off the app without any warning or alternative way to link to the lights it is suppose to support? Now my “smart bulbs” are just regular light bulbs. If this company thinks that this is a way to force customers to buy a new hub- WRONG- this customer will be switching over to a non-wink system ASAP . This practice by companies should be illegal. It is one thing to no longer support a device but to deactivate it without any way to reconnect to an alternative or older version of the app is like product theft. I paid for the device and it works fine. The company should not be forcing customers to a newer more expensive hub by disconnecting the hub from the devices it supports. Unbelievable...

We did have to cut support for the GE Link Hub since GE stopped supported the Hub and is no longer pushing out updates. Since we don't own the GE link Hub, it just used our platform to connect, there was no way to keep that Hub updated to work in our application. For more info, give us a call at 1-844-946-5277, or shoot us an email at email@example.com. -Wink team
Hub no longer works with wink accessories
I've had a wink relay for over a year now and really enjoy the ease of use of the system. The touchscreen always works and displays helpful information like the time and the weather. Unfortunately nothing will connect with the hub anymore. I have several wink supported light bulbs that do not connect, even after multiple times of connecting and reconnecting them to the hub. In addition to the light bulbs not connecting I have an ihome wink supported outlet that has worked off and on for months until one day it just wouldn't work at all. I've tried reconnecting everything to the hub and completely resetting the hub but nothing is working. Wink also has no Apple homekit support which is a big downside since it doesn't integrate with Siri at all. The product has great potential but horrible reliability. I hope they can fix the reliability issues and integrate apple homekit which would both make wink a great platform to use, but right now, I can't recommend it.
