Wink now works with Cortana, Microsoft’s voice-controlled assistant

With Wink + Cortana, you can command your lights, outlets, switches, and thermostats from anywhere using your Windows PC, Cortana on Android and iOS, and other Cortana devices like the Harman Kardon Invoke

What can I do with Wink + Cortana?

With a simple voice command, Cortana can dim the lights, adjust the thermostat, and more. Here are a few examples:

Lighting Products (bulbs, dimmers, switches, outlets):


Hey Cortana,

"Turn on the hallway light"
"Turn off the porch light"
"Set the dining room lamp to 50 percent"
"Brighten the kitchen light to 100 percent"
"Turn on the lights in the kitchen.”


Hey Cortana,

"Turn on the coffee maker."
“Turn off the bedroom fan.”


Hey Cortana,

"Set the bedroom thermostat to 70 degrees"
"Turn up the temperature by 3 degrees"
"Turn off the kitchen thermostat"

Cortana can control groups of products if they all share the same name. For example, naming your lights “Kitchen light sink” and “Kitchen light counter” allows you to control all the lights together by saying “Turn on kitchen lights”.
