Hey everybody, new to the forum here.

I have been in the process of making my home smart. So far I have the following:
  • Amazon Echo
  • Wink Hub 2
  • GE Z-wave smart switches/dimmers/add-ons
  • GoControl Garage door sensor
  • Ring Doorbell 2 with Chime

I have purchased a Wink Relay, but have yet to install it. I am contemplating if this will be a good addition or not. I am reading some mixed reviews on a lot of websites.

One thing I am particularly interested in is the physical buttons. I know these can be wired to control other smart devices connected to wink. What ideas do you guys have for this use? I can only think about using one button to have a "lock all doors" scene or "lock all doors and turn off all lights" scene if it's in a bedroom. What are your ideas?

I am definitely open to purchasing more devices for additional functionality. Personally, I am not really open to the idea of hacking anything, whether physically or on a software level. But ideas are meant to be shared so share away!
