Are there restrictions on where I can install Outlink or what I can control with Outlink?
Outlink is for indoor use only. Do not use with appliances that require more than a 15A current draw. Do not use in kitchens, bathrooms, or other damp environments. Do not use to control electric heaters or any other appliances which may present a hazardous condition due to unattended or unintentional or automatic power on control. App-enabled devices should never be used to supply power to or control the status of medical and/or life-support equipment.
Are both outlets on the Outlink smart outlets?
Only the top outlet on Outlink is a smart outlet. The bottom outlet is a standard outlet.
Should I install the Outlink myself or hire an electrician?
We strongly recommend that you hire a qualified electrician for installation.
Is Outlink compatible with the Link Hub?
Not at this time. Outlink may be paired to the Wink Hub / Wink Hub 2 and the Wink Relay.
Can I install Outlink in a double gang box?
Yes, but you will need a double gang wall plate (not included) and install Outlink without the included faceplate and snap plate.
How do I monitor Outlink's energy consumption in the Wink app?
To enter a monthly smart budget, tap Lights + Power, then tap the three dots at the top right to open Settings. Turn on Smart Budget and enter a monthly budget and location. To see Energy Consumption, exit Settings, and press and hold the Outlink icon. Tap Energy Consumption.
