after all this time i would say no , its more work they cant handle. The reasoning of the UK being different seems a strange one when we all get the same HUB updates. Its frustrating but something to live with , automated home which you manually update
The UK is pretty much the same for everything. ST advertises support for hundreds of devices yet officially supports a fraction of devices supported in the US. If it wasn’t for the community I would have dumped the system a while ago.
After reading loads of topics on this I’m really not that bothered any more I don’t want apps to break as a new push has problems. Most apps I have never get updated its only CoRE and Nest Manager which I’m happy to do myself when new features or bugs fixes that affect me are added.
