I'm wondering why Wink never seems to get the love like other systems do. It appears as though they have a fully baked, open system, with multiple big-name partners. The brand is attractive and spun out of the DIY/Maker community at Quirky. They even have prime shelf space at the end of the aisle at Target. And still no one is talking about it. The hardware is reasonably priced and aesthetically pleasing. Why has Wink not taken off as a platform? I HAVE read numerous hiccups with the Wink software. (but also read that it is improved) Is this the only thing preventing Wink from taking off?
With the latest announcements at CES including, most notably, the "Spotter" sensor and the "Norm" thermostat, Wink really seems to have rounded out their offerings. I can go to wink.com and fully outfit my home with the things I need in one place. That's pretty great.
Norm appears to take the same approach as the Ecobee3 by using the Spotter sensor to determine which rooms you're in and react accordingly. (Using IFTTT, it looks like you can use the Spotter sensor with a Nest as well.)
Is Wink worth another look?
