I've been shying away from this due to mixed reviews, but free? Definitely count me in. Thanks!

I'd shy away from it from a fundamentally flawed architecture relying on a connection to a server and services you don't have any control over. They've had over half a dozen interruptions in November alone. This isn't something you want to deal with when you want to turn your lights on and open your garage door.

Good to know. I'll be using this for an entertainment room and need the bulbs to be honest, since they work with other Zigbee hubs this is more of cheap bonus than anything.

I have one I set up in my home and one I set up at a parent's home. We've had zero issues. I think it depends a lot on the router/set up you have (and also if you take the time to update the hub).
The only issue(s) I've had are around geofencing and my iPhone. It doesn't matter what app I use (ex. Apple Reminders, Wink, etc.) I could be 5 miles away and, every now and then, my iPhone thinks I am home. This is my second iPhone (I went from a 5 to a 6) and both had this problem. Since geofencing is so unreliable for me, I tend to use "Shortcuts" instead of location-based robots.

Lol no. This is a very slick piece of hardware which has 1000 uses when rooted. There's already an android app someone wrote that let's you control it on your local network no cloud needed.

But go ahead.. Tell us more about wink outages and how you wouldn't pay 9 cents for this. You're clearly an expert.

Do you have the links? Especially JTAG root, since these will more than likely be patched already.

Care to elaborate with some links for me to read on this home automation thingy. I'm new to this stuff.
