    So I was watching an episode of "This old House". They installed a device on the deadbolt that via Bluetooth, links to a phone and will lock and unlock the deadbolt based upon proximity to the lock.

    I was blown away, only to find out that naturally, there is no Windows solution. Just like Wink, Just like with Honeywell Thermostats. But, I did see that Ring has a solution. Though, I don't have a wired doorbell, so the latest full HD solution isn't going to happen. ugh.

    There are virtually NO home automation solutions that have windows apps. And it's a shame. I want WINK, and now I want AugustHome lock.

    Thanks, I'm also interested in SmartThings. Waiting to see what comes of the new partnership with Samsung on IoT. But no way to insteon. Only uses proprietary stuff and I don't need to retrofit my existing hardware that will work with Wink. Also, insteon is a fail for August Home deadbolt, as you keep the door hardware and just add their custom backplate. Without buying a mew deadbolt or rekeying ALL my locks.
