Migrating my hub to the new one took 10 minutes and it was so simple and intuitive. Hooking it up via Ethernet cable is a MUST to me at least (something the first iteration could not do). This version is ready for the masses (if only all the bulbs and such by other companies were as well).
Hub migration from the first is easy and fast. I didn't have to re-pair anything
Hooks to router via Ethernet (hardline) to avoid spotty connections
Automatically pairs to new items
A good deal for the price
Not much so far...Philips Hue lights are faster but they still have to go to the cloud I am pretty sure and take longer than Z-Wave items...by orders of magnitude
Isn't hooked up to Google Home (yet?)
Give us Bluetooth!! I would love for this to pair to Bluetooth light switches already in my possession!
This hub is great because unlike the original for me, robots work flawlessly and so does IFTTT.
If you want to have a great smart home experience without the growing pains, go with this version of the hub and I don't think it will disappoint you. Plus the customer service is very helpful and local to the USA. I had an issue with the Wink Relay I just got and them coupled with Amazon did an Amazing job getting me taken care of!
Update 2/16/2017: Over the last 2 weeks, I have been experiencing a significant delay when controlling z-wave devices. Turning off lights now takes an average of 6 seconds. I have been in touch with Wink support and they have had me run a "Z WAVE NETWORK REDISCOVERY" 3 times now, but this has not helped. The response time will sometimes be normal again without explanation. I have called Wink support 3 times now and what frustrates me is that each time, it is me who needs to follow up with them. They have asked me to respond to their support email to let them know if what we tried the last time addresses the issue, and I do, but I never hear back from anyone. Downgrading my review from 5 to 2 until this issue is addressed. I will update when it is.
Picked up at the local home depot last week. I had been using the first generation for a while and a huge complain was that it would occasionally lose connection to my wifi router. I have had this version plugged in for almost 2 weeks now and it has not lost connection once!
If you have the old hub, this hub will detect and do mostly a good job at transferring your devices and settings over to the new hub. In my case it worked almost for everything. The only thing that did not transfer over was my schlage smart door lock, so I had to re-add it manually.
The Wink app to control this hub is still the same app you use to control the old hub. I don't think there is much to improve on this app. The interface is very intuitive and offers several ways to automate tasks ( Robots, Shortcuts and Schedules). Below is a quick summary of each:
- Robots: Performs one or more actions when a specified trigger happens (e.g. Turn on the lights in the living room when the front door is opened between 7pm and 11pm)
- Shortcuts: A way to group actions together for convenience ( e.g. Create a shortcut named "Movie time" which turns off or dims some lights )
- Schedules: A way to setup schedules for things to be on or off (e.g1: Schedule Thermostat upstairs to turn heat on and set the temperature to 72 Mon-Friday at 7pm, e.g2: Setup outside light to turn on Sunset and turn off at Sunrise). Sunset and Sunrise are actually options when choosing times!
I noticed that the response time when communicating with my devices seems significantly faster with this hub. Turning lights on and off works almost instantly for me ( I have 15 smart lights ), which is a huge improvement compared to the old hub.
I would love to see the new Wink hub integrate with the new Google Home. I know it integrates with Amazon Echo, but Google Home does so much more.... Wink hasn't officially announced if this will be supported, but this would be the one thing that makes this hub, the best hub in the market for me.
Please see the video video below for a quick demostration of the responsiveness of this hub when controlling devices and also when using Amazon echo dot.
BUT, Wink has severely handcuffed this device for all but the simplest device configurations. Most Z-wave dimmers support "advanced parameters" for controlling the dimmer behavior -- ramp rate, number of steps, LED indicator behavior, etc. Simple config settings for the dimmer. In my case the dimmer response is very stiff -- a short press of the rocker leads to a large change in intensity -- making it very hard to precisely control from the switch. Wink Hub 2 offers no way change these parameters, which is frustrating for a device of this class. Wink support confirmed this -- and offered no alternate solution when I asked about workarounds.
If I can't tweak a simple dimmer control option, how can depend on this for more complex home automation uses?
Currently 50/50 on keeping this... I like the app and interface, but it's missing critical functionality.
