Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2Bcontinued I can live with this.
I have been living with a Link hub, operated by the Wink iPhone app for about 12 months now and it works fine most days. Every home automation system I have purchased in the past has had inconvenient aspects, and this one is certainly not the worst. In my opinion the Wink hub is just as buggy as the Link hub. However the Link is no longer updated and consequently more stable. The Wink app that runs it is being updated so I get the benefit of controller upgrades without the inconvenience of hub upgrades. The only real problem I have with my Link hub is that it occasionally locks up, usually during thunder storms, and I have to uninstall the hub on the app and reinstall it. I lose all of my programs when this happens. I have found however that if you turn all your Link lights on manually before you reinstall the hub, the Link hub will find them all. That is you won't have to re-link each bulb individually. if you don't mind reprogramming your lights two or three times a year, I recommend it.

Instructions to sync light & phone can be difficult to complete. Had to attempt this part 3 times before I got it right.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Great product but need some updates
Easy to setup and works good but it only supports 2.4Ghz wifi. Nowadays everyone uses 5Ghz wifi. I had to get a dual band wifi extender inorder to get 2.4Ghz since I didn't want to downgrade my wifi at home just to connect the link hub. Otherwise its a great product and worth the money. I was lucky to find this on clearance for $25 at home depot which was a steal for that price.

These things are awesome, with the wink app you can set up "shortcuts" that allow you to control what happens to these lights... I have one for home that turns on the lights. Only downside I see is you have to set up two shortcuts. One to turn it on and one to turn it off. But that's really no problem for me.

I purchased a hub and the 2 bulbs last weekend. Since I have purchased 7 more flood type bulbs and 4 normal type. I have hooked up 7 bulbs so far in different rooms and it works exactly as expected. I am not sure why people are saying you can't add to it etc. Works great! I have an amazon echo and I just ask Alexa to turn on my lights and she does! So Cool!
