Smart home hub (Homey or Wink Hub 2)

By johanvries59 ·

My name is Johan from the Netherlands, i saw another question about smart home and i hoped you could maybe help me as well.

Since a few years my wife and I collected a couple of smart devices in our home. For our heating we use Nest, Philips Hue lights, we have solar panels and electric blinds. Also a few smart plugs and sensors. Myself, but especially my wife isn’t too happy having to control every device in a different way. That is why I am looking for a smart home hub that could control all the devices in our home.

After some research online, I selected two hubs that might fit our situation. The Wink Hub 2 (https://www.wink.com/products/wink-hub-2/) sounds interesting, I found out that this hub is able to connect with a wide range of devices and the hub has a fair price. The only problem at this moment is that I live in the Netherlands and the hub isn’t available in my country yet. I am not sure if all popular European smart home products can be connected.

That is why am thinking about buying Homey (https://www.athom.com/en/homey/), which is a Dutch product. Is also able to connect with a wide range of devices and can even let them work together by creating own scenarios. The reviews that I read about were overall positive, but also some quite negative. But it still seems to be a good match for us.

I was wondering if you know these devices and could give me some tips or maybe have some other suggestions.

Smart home technology isn’t just about asking Alexa to turn on the TV and cranking up the audio when the latest blockbuster is released. Real value comes when you can rely on a safe and comfortable environment that’s efficient and economical. With steadfast security integrated into your alarm, camera surveillance, gate entry and alert notifications you can stay observant even when you’re not at home.
