What Are Hubs? wink hub vs wink hub 2

Do you have multiple smart devices in your homes and you wish that you can control them through just one device? That means controlling your smart lights, doors, and alarms just by using one device. It is very convenient! Hubs bring that convenience to customers by unifying multiple smart devices and allowing customers to control them using their own tablet or phone. Hubs give customers a taste of what it feels like to live in a smart home.

Wink is a well-known hub brand and is one of the best choices in the market for customers who are looking for ‘futuristic’ upgrades to their homes. Wink has been developed by Wink Labs and launched in 2014. Currently, there are only two choices of Wink brands in the market: the original Wink Hub and Wink Hub 2. Aside from the price, what are the differences between the two Wink Hubs? Instead of a long wink hub vs wink hub 2 review, here are a few reasons why you should choose the latter.

Reasons Why You Should Choose Wink Hub 2

Although you will spend extra bucks on purchasing the Wink Hub 2, its improvements from its predecessor Wink Hub is actually worth paying for.

 Slimmer design

When it comes to technology and devices, slimmer is sexier. The original Wink Hub’s dimension is 8″ x 8″ x 3,” bulkier than the 7.25″ x 7.25″ x 1.25″ dimension of the Wink Hub 2. Slimmer designs have fewer tendencies to overheat and are more aesthetically pleasing.

 Security Chip

There are people who get ‘paranoid’ with the idea of unified control. According to them, once the unifying unit is hacked, which in this case is the Wink Hub, the hackers can gain control. Imagine a complete outsider controlling your home! But Wink Hub 2 eliminates this possibility by the installed security chip in its system.

 Bigger memory, faster processing

Even if the design of Wink Hub 2 is slimmer, the local memory of the Wink Hub 2 had been improved from 64 MB to 512 MB. The processing ability of Wink Hub 2 is twice faster than its predecessor and has a larger device capacity.
