Hub Firmware 0.46.10 Beta
We’re excited to announce the start of a new SmartThings Hub Firmware Beta. Version 0.46.10 will begin rolling out in batches starting on Feb 6, 2023. This will be a phased rollout so that we can keep a close eye on any issues that arise so your hub may not be updated immediately. The hub will be offline for about a minute during the update. See below for more specific details about the update.

Is this not being available to V2 hubs a sign that the V2 hub will not be updated further?
V2 doesn’t have the Multipan chip for Thread
Im wondering how much longer they are supporting the v2 hub? It is a few years old. What would be the benefits of upgrading to the aeotech hub?
Currently the only benefit is Thread and a wifi connection. But a $60-80 SmartThings Station will get you Thread.
Replacing an 8-ish year old V2 hub with a 5-ish year old V3/Aeotec hub is a lot of work for little gain, in my opinion.
Guess you’re right. I’m hoping they come out with a new upgraded hub. Would be good business for them.
I saw that but would not call it a hub… not sure what to call it. Besides, i would want hub that does both zwave & zigbee.
Im aware of that hub. It makes sense to wait since that hub is only a rebranded v3 hub, which is a few years old. Would hope they announce a new one soon.
If the world is turning thread and matter I can’t see why Samsung would release a new hub with z-wave and zigbee!?
Because there are still thousands and thousands of those devices out there, and will likely be out there for a few years to come. It would be a mistake for Samsung not support those, in my opinion at least.
I would think zwave & zigbee are atill viable technologies. Can all these small sensors be made matter capable? I dont know.
I would not upgrade from a v2 hub to a v3. The v3 has less memory than the v2. And people are reporting low memory issues with the v3. I have not seen any reports of people with v2 hubs reporting memory issues.
I know but this firmware addresses a myriad of other non Thread related issues. They don’t generally have a V3-only upgrade. Seems a bit out of the norm.
The intent for 0.46.9 rollout to V3-only hubs was to deploy the new Thread stack to Customer Beta users and monitor the results over the past week. We will be releasing another build next week targeting V2 and V3 hubs in Customer Beta.
Zwave implementation is kind of awful, you can’t just order devices from Ali, you need to read a lot and have no guarantee you’ll get the right version.
Even if you overpaid for the local official Zwace device, surprise you would not get firmware updates, because Samsung has not implemented this minor feature. Want to use Zwave groups in ST? forget it.
Zigbee is a little bit better no region lock and it does not require useless certification and allows the creation of new kinds of devices. But there are several generations of the protocol, some vendors don’t broadcast signals from another vendor. Official Hue integration is not using Zigbee, and requires separate hub.
what Thread devices work with the ST at this moment? I haven’t seen any driver or announcement on the website.
I have Google Home and Nanoleaf Thread devices and none of them can detect Smarttings (hub v3) Thread network.
Is there any way to understand if the thread is running on my device?
I used to be in the beta with a v2 hub. Moved to a v3 and I think I reapplied correctly in the portal. Any way to check my application?
