Wink Relay is a touchscreen control panel that aims to centralise the connected home. It’s an Android-based device that replaces any light switch and connects to the home’s Wi-Fi to control a wide array of smart home products. This includes light bulbs, door locks, garage doors, and more, all controllable through the Wink app.

The device boasts a 4.3-inch touchscreen, two physical buttons, and a built-in microphone and speaker. The physical buttons can be programmed to control any function, such as turning off all lights or locking all doors with a single press. The touchscreen displays the home’s temperature, humidity, and energy use, and can even show the forecast.

Relay is priced at $300. Despite the high price tag, Wink believes it offers value for money due to its ability to control multiple devices and functions. The device is also designed to be easy to install, with Wink offering an installation guide via its app. Relay is currently available for pre-order, with shipping expected to start in early December.
