How to Connect Your Smart Plug to Wink

If you're a Wink user, you'll have no issue with on/off control of your Smart Plug.

You'll be able to create schedules and add it to custom Robots. However, you won't have access to the Smart Plug's advanced settings and parameter inputs. You also won't be able to monitor the device's energy consumption - this is a limitation in Wink's interface. The same applies for other Z-Wave Plus devices with advanced options. Regardless, you'll still be able to take advantage of the Smart Plug's most important functionality: quick and reliable on/off control. Here's how to add it to Wink:

1. Click on Hubs 
2. Click on Settings (the three dots in the upper right corner)
3. Click on your hub (most likely named Wink Hub)
5. Scroll down to Settings and click on Z-Wave Controls
6. Click on Inclusion Mode
7. Plug the Smart Plug into a nearby receptacle to activate auto-inclusion
8. Rename your Smart Plug and start automating!

If you've tried including the plug to Wink but it's just not working out, check out these troubleshooting tips.

And by the way, if you're ever unsure if a device will work with Wink, we recommend going by their official compatibility list as well as this unofficial, user-built list to verify compatibility.
