Dear Vernonite:
Currently, there is no way to run the Wink app on Windows 8.x OS. However, Wink gets this question a lot and they are looking into the possibility.

Hello Yolie and thank you for your question.
I spoke to the team at Quirky who told me that you could use the Quirky Nimbus to set multiple alarms to remind you to take your medicines. The instructions are in the packaging or you can call their customer support (1-866-589-4759 or 1-866-5QUIRKY) for additional assistance. Basically:
1. Download the (wink: instantly connected) app to your smartphone

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No longer supported While trying to set the Quirky GE Spotter up the Wink app says it no longer works with or supports this device. Do not buy the first gen spotter. Quirky has also gone out of business. July 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointing Well as good as the device sounds on paper, in practice it is not. I wonder it they did enough beta testing before launching this product. The setup is fairly simple if you are used to mobile apps and basic gadgets. The device is magnetic so you can stick it to the suitable surfaces without screws. It has four sensors: temperature, humidity, motion and light. However, all of them are vague at best. The temperature and humidity are nowhere close to the values on my room thermometer/humidity sensor. The motion sensor works sometime and sometimes it does not and so does the light sensor. I would have been happy if at least one of them worked perfectly as claimed by the manufacturer, but this thing is totally useless. I would not recommend this. January 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cool Item Really cool Item, easy to setup. Simply install the App and sync it to the device and you can setup different notifications. I installed on the back of a door to use to notify me if the door opens while out of town. Great item to give as a gift during Holiday season. November 10, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome when it works I am really excited about the partnership between Quirky and GE and the Spotter is one such product to come out of this union. The Spotter is a swiss army knife environmental monitoring device. It connects to your WiFi network and setup is quick and easy using the Wink app for your smartphone. Once connected you have the ability to setup a multitude of monitoring triggers for Temperature, Light, Motion and Sound when connected to AC. Each trigger can be setup to send you a push notification or email. However, when running on the two AA batteries only Motion and Light can be monitored. I though this would be a easy and affordable way to monitor my front door and receive a push notification whenever the Spotter detected it opening (motion sensor). Once configured and two fresh AA batteries installed it easily stuck to my front door with the double magnets in the back casing. Where it failed to deliver was actually sending me notifications of detecting motion. It was really hit or miss and not reliable. I am not sure why, but the battery mode doesn't provide accurate monitoring. I then set this up to run as a temperature monitor near my electronics cabinet. If it detects the temperature over 75 degrees I have it setup to send me a notifications. Because it is running on AC now I don't worry about replacing the batteries. Maybe in the next iteration of this product they will work out the performance issues. I am still a fan though! January 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works most of the time It took me two days to get this connected to my network. The feedback from the device needs to improve for the setup procedure. Once connected the device works relatively consistently. I purchased this to remotely monitor temperature. Seems to be doing the job but sometimes the last temperature is hours old. I have tried email and notifications for temperature < xx degrees and that works well. Sometimes I get a few too many emails but that is better than getting none. Once temperature stopped updating for a few days and I emailed Quirky and the fixed it in a day. Tech support is responsive. I use this device plugged in and I view the status via a Android Moto G. February 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great device works as promised I bought two spotters because of the mixed reviews. I wanted to have both sensors checking against each other. The spotters work better than I expected and are in sync for the data. I want to be sure that my furnace doesn't stop during the winter while I'm in Florida. Having the spotters providing temperature and humidity (for water leaks) gives me this assurance. BTW. My insurance company is satisfied that these sensors will look after the requirement to have someone come into my home every few days. A great produce and easy setup. May 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Great idea, not so great implementation The spotter is a great idea and I was looking forward to using it. But it was running for a few days and then I stopped getting messages. I needed to completely set it up again (which is quite painful). Using my iPhone to configure it is a wonderful idea (when it works), but the fact that it won't 'stick' is a problem. I also have a Wink hub (I bought them together at home depot) but I can't really understand if they are working together or is just the Spotter working. Last, I have never been able to get anything other than the motion and light detectors working, even though I have it plugged in all the time. I guess I need to call the Wink support department again. August 26, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Returning it tomorrow Wink prides itself on easy setup... spent 45 minutes on the phone with support trying one "trick" after another to get it to connect... finally did. I don't consider that easy. I bought it for the temperature function that was very inaccurate, read 6-7° under my other thermometers, wanted this for when I was on vacation to know the temp. The motion, light and sound detectors seemed real erratic as far as when a reading would be triggered. After the time spent connecting I thought might as well see how it works... POORLY! Absolutely going back! Great concept but just doesn't work. I really wish it did... December 10, 2014
