Smart Homes Happen Everywhere with Wink

June 06, 2017

Modernizing a home today involves more than new kitchen cabinets and bathroom fixtures. Getting the full benefit of 21st century living requires upgrading what you can’t see: in-home connectivity that increases comfort, security and energy efficiency.

The good news for DIYers is that the connected home is no longer the realm of techies. Simple-to-install devices from providers like Wink make the everyday homeowner — the kind of person who’s more comfortable with a hammer than a hard drive — into a smart home wizard.

Wink has grown to become the largest DIY smart home platform with more than 2.4 million connected devices. The Wink Hub allows homeowners to control lighting, monitor and adjust temperature, set alarms and more via Wi-Fi enabled devices. Plus, the setup is extremely simple.

Wireless technology has made it possible for any home to get connected without tearing through walls. That’s true for a traditional home, a historic structure and even a treehouse. See it for yourself. Check out these videos of three very different but equally smart homes:
