We are happy to announce open beta testing for version 2 of our popular Wink Driver Pack. This version is a major overhaul with greatly expanded device support and will be a free update to everyone who currently owns the driver.
Ring Doorbell button press detection
Ring Doorbell motion detection
Arlo, ArloQ, Nest Cam and Ring stick up cam motion detection
Door lock support
MyQ and other Wink garage doors
Dimmers and binary light switch drivers supporting Z-wave, ZigBee, Philips Hue, Lutron and others
Sensors including leak detectors, smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, motion sensors and others
Read access to any device in your account through a new generic Wink device driver
Greatly simplified driver structure and easier installation with drop down lists of device names
How do I get it?
The open beta can be activated by having your dealer install the driver files linked to below and activating with the key “BETA”.
How can I help?
We are interested in any feedback you have. We are especially interested in hearing from users with blinds and door locks.
What happened to the old drivers?
The older drivers for different devices such as spotter, refuel, garage doors, etc. are discontinued in favor of a simpler driver structure. Now all these devices can be represented with a single generic Wink device driver. This driver will automatically configure itself upon linking with your account and setup all the appropriate variables, relays and contacts. This allows us to support many more devices and reduces the number of drivers that have to be maintained. We still have the binary switch and dimmer drivers in order to provide the appropriate UI experience in navigator. Your other devices can also be displayed in navigator by linking relays and contacts to the appropriate control4 generic device drivers. Details are provided in the documentation.
Limitations and requirements
This driver requires OS 2.9 or later
Video on cameras and doorbells is not supported
Wink is in the process of updating their integration with Rachio. We will try to add support for sprinklers when this is completed.
We have not yet implemented a thermostat specific driver. It’s the next thing on the roadmap for this driver.
