Now that Amazon, Google, and Apple have already or are set to disrupt the smart-home devices market, Wink is stepping up its game with its Wink Hub 2.
The new version is sleeker and faster than the original Hub. The product looks much more modern with a matte-white facade and squared-off body, making it blend a house's other tech features more seamlessly. Inside the product is where the change really matters with eight times more RAM than the previous Hub.
The original Hub is still functional and will be maintained and supported, but the Hub 2 may steal some more business from the Amazon Echo and the soon-to-be-released Google Home.
Wink Hub 2 will be on the market for $99 starting in late October.
