Die Smart-Home-Plattform Wink, von Quirky ausgelagert, hat zum Launch keine guten Bewertungen bekommen, was die Ausführungen von Hardware und Software betrifft. Trotzdem gewinnt Wink, der Underdog zwischen Apple, Google und Samsung, viele neue Nutzer.
In an interview this week with Brett Worthington, VP and general manager at Wink, he said that Wink added more than 3,000 hubs a day on Black Friday and Christmas Day and a new user every 12 seconds (there are more users than hubs because some devices don’t require a hub to work). Those customers added 3.5 devices per account.[..]
Currently I’m seeing that on the Android side about 50,000 people have downloaded the app according to the tally in the Play store. In most home automation setups involving hubs, iOS users are about 60 or 70 percent of the user base, but I don’t know what Wink’s breakdown is specifically, and Worthington wouldn’t give me the user numbers.
