Re: Can't program

Wink technical details?

at the bottom of http://www.plumgeek.com/ringo.html is a technical details section showing the Ringo components (what they are and where they are located). Is the same available for Wink? I cant find it anywhere. I'm after the same details, not a general list of what Wink has.

Re: Wink Issue.

Press the power button (PWR) to turn on the Wink, ignore the charging light, Wink needs to be turned On for serial connection to work.
