Wink’s smart home platform faces a days-long outage
Wink’s switch to a subscription service for its smart home platform hasn’t had the best start. The company has confirmed reports (via Android Police and The Verge) of a wide-ranging outage affecting its services, including integration with Amazon Alexa and Google Home/Nest services and even Wink.com (initially reduced to a basic landing page). The problems appear to have started on September 10th.
The company’s status page indicated that fixed had been put in place for at least some issues. However, there were still “partial” outages listed for most support as of this writing (September 12th), and “degraded performance” for both the Core and Hub frameworks.
