The Revolv hub: Good hardware, mediocre software, lots of promise

on November 12, 2013


Revolv, a Boulder, Colo.-based company that has been building a hub for the smart home, has finally let its radio-packed machine out into the homes of reviewers. And unless you’re an early adopter with an iPhone who already has a select bunch of connected devices today, this isn’t the device for you.

However, if you own a Sonos, a Nest, Yale Locks, Kwickset locks, the Philips Hue lightbulbs, Insteon products or a few other devices on this list, the Revolv might be worth the $299 asking price. Again, I say might, because if you have all of these devices and don’t have a desire to start playing with a limited feature set under one app (knowing that feature set is going to improve), then this isn’t for you. However, if you want to connect a lot of binary devices (on/off), then by all means buy this hub.
