Anyone here use Wink devices for IOT around the house? Apparently their apps were free, but now they announced a $4.99 per month fee - or your existing devices won't work anymore.

I don't have a dog in this hunt but saw this article today in another forum.

Hope that Smartthings does not get the same bright idea. If Smartthings ever tries it I will go “hubless” or move to another platform. It is extortion, plain and simple. Sure glad I did not go with Wink.
