Wink Relays are on sale, 2 for $149. Shipping looks to start at $16.
These were originally $99 each (reduced from the original release price of $299 each). With the latest software update, the long awaited Intercom functionality is now active, making this an even better deal.

Wink.com is selling a 2-pack bundle of the Relay for $149 plus S&H which ran me $16. I ran across this after seeing that they have now activated the microphone function which will allow this to be used as a intercom system. Some are speculating that this may be the first step towards Siri integration. That would be a pretty neat upgrade on a product I thought they were abandoning!

Did you mean to say that it is active?




I just bought one from Amazon for $99, but this is tempting to have two of them...

The Relay has definitely improved with the updates they've done over the last few months. I used to not recommend them, but now I'd say it's worth the purchase, if you are willing to invest in Wink.

I have one in my living room and was just thinking about if it would be worth moving it to my bedroom instead. I'd probably never use the intercom feature though. I'd prefer if it was more for voice commands to control the lights.

Use Relay to intercom to your Amazon Echo. Voila! Now you have voice control thru Relay.

It is active. It was a typo.

The relay is the only wink device I regret getting and I got it for $100 over a year ago. The screen resolution is bad it looks like a 4 year old mid range phone, but I could get over that if the touch screen worked better. It can be very frustrating swiping and touching things on it. The relay also doesn't connect to its base on the wall very well and will disconnect itself causing the light its connected to turn off or flash. It also doesn't dim the light it's attached to, but I knew that before hand. I'm thinking of ditching mine and replacing it with a smart dimmer. My family no longer uses it because of it finickyness. The Echo is by far a better family interface for your wink hub. Just my 2 cents.

I installed 2 of these expecting my wife to roll her eyes and try not to ask me how much I spent. Much to my surprise, she loves them - they are exactly what she thought a "smart home" should be. even though we use the Echos more often, i don't regret putting these in. In fact, I just ordered two more!

Could you outline your current setup? Right now we have a Wink Hub, an Echo, some Hue bulbs, and a Schlage Wink lock installed. I also have some GE Link bulbs I need to find a place to put. I'm trying to tie everything together.

I'm currently running a Wink Hub, with two Relays, a Tapt, 8-10 Link bulbs, 12-15 Hue bulbs (most connected through a Hue Bridge into Wink), several Osram bulbs, some z-wave switches and sensors, a Kwikset lock, MyQ garagedoor controller, Nest Thermostat, and a few remotes (I'm sure I'm forgetting some things, but that's close). Additionally, there are three Echos and a Dot placed around the house for voice control, and a Harmony hub to control the entertainment system.

I debated buying one of these and ended up mounting a smartphone on my wall instead. I should have used something faster than a GS3mini but I really like having bluetooth to control speakers, Spotify, etc.
