iHome, makers of numerous accessories for the mobile devices, have announced the first major update to their iHome Control iSP5 SmartPlug that makes it compatible with Wink and Nest devices. The additional platform compatibility, which also has iOS and Android support, makes the iSP5 one of the most versatile smartplugs on the market. Thanks to the “Works with Wink” compatibility, the iSP5 can now be integrated with hundreds of other Wink-compatible devices to achieve better home automation through Shortcuts and Robots in the Wink app. In addition, through its connection with the Nest Thermostat, the iSP5 can automatically turn the Smart Plug on or off as well.
With the holiday season in full swing, the iHome SmartPlug can set schedules, remotely control holiday lighting plus gadgets, as well everyday household items using the free iHome Control app. The app can also create custom scenes to control multiple SmartPlugs with tap of the screen or through the use of Siri voice commands. In addition to Wink and Nest support, the update also improves performance, bug fixes and stability issues. If you’re interested and want to purchase the device, it is available on the iHome website for $39.99.
