Firmware updates are annoying, but they are necessary for a properly functioning (and secure) device. The Wink Hub is no exception, but if you don’t need to update your hub every time a new firmware comes out, you can enable automatic updates.

This new feature is available in the Wink iPhone app (sorry Android users) and can be quickly and easily enabled if you want your Wink Hub to handle all updates on its own.

To get started, open the Wink app and tap the menu icon in the top left corner of the screen.

Select Hubs.

Click on the settings gear icon in the top right corner.

Choose your Wink Hub.

Scroll down a bit and click Firmware Updates.

Click the toggle switch next to «Enable Firmware Update» if it’s not already enabled.

Below you can choose when to install firmware updates by turning off the «Allow updates at any time» toggle switch.

From there, select a start and end time to create a window for when firmware updates are installed during, preferably in the middle of the night or while you’re at work, that way it doesn’t get updated when you can use your Wink system. However, be aware that Wink warns that the lights may automatically turn on after an update, even if they were turned off before. So if you’re using a flasher in your bedroom, you might suddenly go blind if you install the updates at night.
