It can be frustrating when your Wink Hub isn’t connecting with or controlling your other smart home products. Before attempting to troubleshoot any possible issues, make sure that you have the latest firmware on your Wink Hub and that all devices are within a reasonable distance from the hub. If you are experiencing any issues with connectivity, there are several steps you can take to try and remedy potential problems:
First, check the status light on the Wink Hub. If the light is magenta, this indicates an issue with connections. Make sure all connected devices within range of the hub have an uninterrupted power source and proper radio frequency connection. You should also double-check that all of your devices are correctly paired with their respective remote controls. If they aren’t, you may need to reconfigure them in order to marry each product correctly.
Alternatively, if the status light is orange it indicates a possible error communicated by one of your connected products or by Wink itself (e.g., low battery warning). In these cases, double-check that all of those products (including their batteries) are working properly and within range of the hub and then reconnect them to ensure that they are working in unison with one another. Finally, if despite these steps you’re still experiencing problems please contact customer service for further assistance in resolving potential issues as there may be additional steps which require technical expertise to remedy.
