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.

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.

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 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.

The company that manufactured the "Link Hub" went out of business so there are no software updates that are available in order for it to pair with more than these two bulbs. If you're looking to pair with more than two bulbs, purchase the Wink Hub or Wink Hub 2 which includes Wink's own and most updated software. Otherwise, this is a good price.

One of the lightbulbs refuses to work with the App. Everytime I turn off the lights with the app, only one bulb ever works. This is after multiple tries with resyncing it to the wink hub. This also does not talk well with Alexa. Everytime I have Alexa try to turn the lights off, she disconnects them from the wifi. Essentially these are just useless.

I'm not convinced that the entire process is really secure. Although the Wink website has all kinds of good things to say about security they never actually explain the security..... It's going back. The other thing is the price tag. Ouch.
