Wink's Relay controller is about to do a lot more than tie your smart home together. The company is rolling out third-party service support that accomplishes tasks you wouldn't normally expect from the device controlling your light bulbs. For one thing, you can order a ride through Uber -- it'll even show a ride you've ordered on your phone, in case you need a heads-up that your driver is nearly there. You can also get updates on your Fitbit progress from the Relay's sleep screen, or use the controller's two physical buttons to trigger automated IFTTT tasks. Will you use these often? Probably not, but they'll beat walking across the house to get your phone.
