Customer Questions & Answers

After buying the one box can you add on lights? Will I have to purchase multiple boxes for multiple lights?

Asked by: Ryan
mainly NO but yes under specific circumstance. The LINK hub is apparently no longer made and the new bulbs have newer softwear that will not communicate with the link hub. If you can find older bulbs (and the boxes do not list which are the old style vs the new style) you can add to the hub. IF you get a newer bulbs you cannot sync it. I would not have bought this item knowing what I know now. It really should be removed from the shelves.

If you lose wi-fi connectivity can you still turn the light on manually?

Asked by: kg467
Yes. A light fixture containing a Link bulb is always left in the switched-on position. To manually over ride the wi-fi hub, set the switch to off, and then back to on. The bulb will turn on at full brightness.

Customer Reviews

Link Starter Pack - Link Hub + 2 Link A19 Light Bulb is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised! After I saw how inexpensive the starter kit was in a Home Depot flyer, I took a look at the product reviews. I was concerned that people had difficulties in setting up the system, especially those who were technically savy. I had wanted to put in a system to turn lights on in my house, so I thought $25.00 dollars and the option to return it if necessary-why not! It took three attempts to connect to the Hub-not sure why, but the last time I changed the outlet. After that setting up each bulb was easy-even created groups! I'm not technically savy and I'm a female in my 60's and I was able to set up this system!! This is a proud moment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No warranty support Update: I got a replacement A19 after 60 days of calling Quirky, A week after receiving the replacement lamp the Hub controller stopped working. I have been trying for three week now to get the Hub replaced. I was told again that Logististics would contact me to return the Hub, nothing happened after two weeks ( on vacation). I called again, now the customer rep tells me that they have changed systems and they have no record of my request and I would now have contact by email to get a replacement Hub. No voice support, I have not gotten a reply in two days. These people continue to waste my time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! I'm so embarrassed to say that I bought one of these as a housewarming gift for a family member. I also bought one for myself, it was a nightmare from the beginning. Customer service is a joke and they made a remark to me that this product is pretty much worthless and the company is no longer producing this product. It worked for the first few hours and then the adapter stopped working, it started flashing colors and not responding. I'm over it! I'm returning this garbage

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hints for getting it up and running My Link system is working perfectly now, but it took a bit to get it there. I bought the Link Starter Kit two days ago and tried to get it running yesterday. The Wink App downloaded to my iPhone 4S without a problem, but, for the life of me, I could not connect to the hub. The required QuirkySetup-xxxx network appeared briefly on the wifi settings screen on my phone but disappeared making it impossible to connect to the hub. I called Customer Service today (1-844-946-5277), and they told me to reset the hub by holding in the button on the bottom of the hub for 10 seconds. This didn't work, so we thought I had a defective hub. Before bringing it back to Home Depot, I tried holding it in for 20 seconds. This worked! QuirkySetup-xxxx appeared on my iPhone, and the rest of the installation went smoothly. Bottom line, if you are having trouble connecting to the hub, hold the reset button in for at least 20 seconds. One other thing to be aware of is the possible time lag between a scheduled Event and its actually happening. I wanted to test using the system to turn a bulb on and then off at specific times. I set the "On" Event for 3:45 PM and the "Off" Event for two minutes later. 3:45 PM came and went without the bulb's coming on. I thought the system wasn't working, but then the bulb came on. It was about 3-4 minutes late. Two minutes later, the bulb went off as scheduled. It turns out that the "Events" are scheduled on some computer in the "Cloud", not in the hub itself and this can cause slight delays in Events happening. Customer Service told me that this delay seems to get shorter as you use the system more. I am now very pleased with this system. It works just as I wanted it to, and it is a great value for the money. Customer Service has been excellent. They have all been very friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can't believe Home Depot is selling the Link Hub I contacted WInk support after I could not get one of the lights to pair with the Link hub. I learned some of the lights have newer software that is incompatible with the Link hub. The Link hub is NOT being updated due to some issues with the company GE partnered with to develop the the Link hub. I bought a Wink hub (different product than the Link hub), and the GE lights work just fine! Save yourself the trouble and skip this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defunct Company? I tried getting this setup of the course of a couple of months because a travel a lot. I never could get these two lights working properly even after a couple of hours of tech support with Wink (That's where GE sends you). After the time with Wink, the suggested that I call Quirky, the actual manufacturer of the hub. The quirky call is answered by a recording that says something like "we are looking for funding and can't help you, please send an email. I have sent an email and a subsequent email with no response. GE, Home Depot and Wink are not interested in getting any Quirky problems resolved and Quirky is simply nor replying.

For starters, the link hub was a pain to connect to my wifi, which took a long time to finally connect. Once I had finally gotten it connected I started to work on connecting the light bulbs to the wink hub. After trying to connect the bulbs to the hub multiple times, and having to reset the bulb after each attempt, we ended up returning the whole thing, and buying a wink hub 2, instead to connect lightswitches etc. Overall I would not buy this again based on my experience with this product, and would reccommend anyone looking to buy this, to stay away.

After owning this product for 6 months, Hub went offline, can't control any lightbulbs. Contact Wink app for support, after running the steps repeatedly for 30 minutes. Was told to contact GE for a faulty hub because during the steps, at one point the light of the Hub went dark. Was told that is not normal. Call GE, was told to contact Quirky, the manufacture of the hub (even thou there is a GE logo on the packaging of the box). Quirky say they don't support product not bought via their web site.
