Answer: 
YES - I use this with the, "Smart Things Hub." Other reviewers from other sites claim it works fine with other home automation systems as well. It is not proprietary to the Wink Hub, just suggested to work with it. It is a Zigbee protocol bulb. As long as your hub communicates Zigbee, you should have no issues.

I use two of these bulbs in fixtures located outside the front and rear entrances to my home. One is completely enclosed and the other faces down with an opening at the bottom. Both fixtures protect the bulbs from precipitation, rain snow, etc, but not the cold. I've been using these bulbs for over 3 months now and have had no issues with either application. To answer the question, I think it's safe to use these bulbs anywhere you'd feel comfortable using any regular household bulb or where they are protected from the elements. I live in Jersey and it's been a pretty cold winter. Currently 5 degrees outside and the bulbs work with no issues at all. (Knock on wood) - Hope that helps! Read Less

Answer: 
Not sure if they are specifically certified for outdoor use, but if they are protected in a fixture, they should be ok. LED bulbs do not always perform great in temperature extremes and may not last as long. You should make sure you can receive a signal from your controller - some signals do not do well going through exterior walls.

Yes, you link one time and the light is married to your device only. Nobody else can link to your light unless they disconnect the light bulb, reconnect and link it to theirs. If they steal your light bulb, they can marry it to their system, but that is a whole different issue that you would need to handle with them. Best of luck!

Answer: 
It's safe from your neighbors, in fact if it looses connection from your hub (it will sooner or later) you would have to re-set it to re-connect. To re-set you need to turn it on and off 5 times with 3 sec intervals after which it will blink so you'll know when it's ready to be re-connected.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 123 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Bulb Works great with Smartthings hub and Alexa. Never had any issues with this bulb. Smartthings doesn't have it listed as a compatible device but if you change the name of it in the settings it will work perfectly. You have to sign in to your Samsung account to change the settings . July 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love these bulbs and the Wink system! These bulbs are so easy to pair and work as described! I am not sure why HD has quit selling them in our local store as they are only available online now. That's not a major inconvenience since it only took 2 days to receive and shipping was free! July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by it works, its not ideal but i wanted to try it out since it was cheaper then installing a zwave switch a small bug or two, might be with my smart things hub/app? otherwise not a big deal, the bulb is bright , works as advertised July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wink hub required, hub doesn't work The color of the bulb itself is great. Dimmable (slow to dim though) too. But to control it you need the Wink hub. Hub never works and is more expensive than the other options. Look into WEMO outlet thing and a regular led bulb for example. I can not recommend Wink hub/bulbs. August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Deal I have a Wink Controller and it recognizes the Link bulbs. I have slowly replaced a light in each room with the Link bulb. They are extremely easy to setup and function wonderfully. Using the Wink app, I can schedule the bulbs to turn on and off. Plus I have added Amazon Alexa controller and can vocally turn the lights on and off. The lights themselves are great, they have a wonderful brightness which is not blinding. I would highly recommend these light bulbs for any use. I have even replaced the porch lights and now I don't have to remember if I turned it on or off. You really need the get the Wink controller if you want to get full use of these bulbs. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GE link 60W I installed on my lamps, really easy to pair, and install, no issues as of today still working, dimmer is a plus, I also installed on my Porch for my outside light and was great, just schedule for sunset and sunrise and I don't need to worry when to turn it on or off.
