What Can You Connect With a Wink Smart Home System?
The new platform is promising close to 60 smart products for every room in the house.
July 08, 2014 by Rachel Cericola

Two weeks ago, we mentioned that Wink was planning to launch 60 products. Right on time, the company has already made many of those products available for purchase.

Wink is a new DIY home automation system that’s backed by GE and Quirky—the same people that brought us the genius of the Egg Minder. However, it isn’t just a new company; it’s a new smart home platform, which can work with products from 15 different manufacturers. Some of the planned products include light bulbs, window shades, water heaters, garage door openers, locks, and much more.

Wink products are now available for purchase through Home Depot stores and HomeDepot.com. It’s important to note that some products will require the Wink Hub, while others will work out of the box with the free Wink app. The Wink Hub is designed to bring everything together under one system and one app, with support for Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Bluetooth, and Z-Wave. Originally priced at $79, it’s currently available on HomeDepot.com for just $49.99. While all 69 products aren’t currently available, at last peek, Home Depot had 26 products that only need the Wink app, with an additional 12 available for pairing with the Wink Hub.
