Unfortunately, as Wink user Chris Sewell posted on Google , now affected owners are left questioning if they should stick with the company at all or switch to another (hopefully more reliable, maybe Samsung had the right idea delaying its Smart Things Hub) platform -- despite the many cool aspects of smart home setups.
Ruby Gems 2.6.8 and newer have improved SSL error messages to help you diagnose your problems.
Today's example comes from the Wink Hub, a device sold at Home Depot that's supposed to simplify things by working across standards and link common home appliances (lights, thermostat, garage door, etc.) to your phone.
That was the plan until yesterday when Wink that went wrong somehow, and now a number of users have a box "so secure that it is unable to connect to the Wink servers" (Wink's words, not ours).
It’s a pretty common problem with a simple fix (most of the time).
UPDATE 2014-12-21: Ruby Gems 1.8.30, 2.0.15, and 2.2.3 have been released.The problem isn’t with the website – the problem is with your computer. Look down in the lower right corner, where the date and time are displayed.Now for the downside of a house loaded up with "smart" devices to allow remote control and monitoring: turning your home into a computer means computer-like problems.This infrastructure verifies that we are who we say we are.If we trust the Do D PKI infrastructure, then the infrastructure can vouch for us to trust others that have certificates issued from the Do D PKI.
