Wink was never going to own the market unless a big company acquired them IMO. IMO, Wink died when the Winkening happened and they discontinued Tripper, Overflow, etc. without adding support for devices to replace them. Once that happened, Wink made a lot of promises, kept very few, and lost any chance they had when they launched Wink 2 and didn’t follow through on their promises.It's a pity, they could have owned the market. Single unit with all of the radios integrated was such a cool idea.
OTOH, my Alexa + Lutron Hub setup works like a champ!
The Echo with the zigbee hub is too limited IMO, and I think that’s why Amazon should buy Wink. They should be able to buy them fairly cheap.
Of course, they still won’t have webCoRE.
