A Vera could work as well but for right now the Wink is fine. myServer has a Wink driver and it works well so I have no complaints.

However, I have knack for over-complicating things when I already have a working solution so I probably need to leave well-enough alone for now.
With that being said...I'll probably order a Vera to play around with
