Amazon Echo now supports Wink-controlled smart home hardware

Should you be rocking the Amazon Echo, you'll now be able to connect to various Wink-controlled supported smart home products. Amazon has added support for the connected hub, enabling consumers to take full advantage of available voice commands, alongside connectivity with Belkin WeMo and Philips Hue.

All you need to do is configure the Wink hub with your smart home devices (as you normally would) and then connect the Amazon Echo using the official Echo app. Currently, Amazon's speaker supports Leviton's Decora Plug-In Appliance Control switch, Lutron's Caseta Plug-In Lamp Dimmer, as well as select GE LED lights.

It's a neat addition to the Amazon Echo and a new feature we're sure those deploying the Wink Hub will appreciate. Be sure to check the Amazon website for list of products currently supported by Echo.
