Well, according to filings with the Federal Communications Commission here in the US, there probably is a v3 hub.
But who knows if it’s coming out in a month, a year, or maybe even never. And that’s the US, there’s also no way to know how that applies to the UK market.
Frankly, I think it’s unlikely that any price reduction you’re seeing is explained by the imminent release of a new hub. But that’s just a guess.
More likely that some starter kits have older versions of the sensors in them, and those kits are on sale. If that’s the case, the older version sensors will still work with the hub just fine.
Someone asked a similar question recently, and that was the explanation (i.e. different generation sensors, not different generation hub). But again, that was in the US.
Looking to switch over to smartthings, local microcenter has F-MON-KIT-1 on sale for 109
I’ve done a number of searches attempting to get details with no luck. It appears to be a V2 hub by the picture, the people in the store are of no use.
Seems like it a good deal but not sure, anybody know for sure the difference is between the kit-1 and kit-2? And is it worth getting?
BTW in the UK, there is only one version of the hub. V1 was released in the US only, so the only version in the UK corresponds to the v2 hub in the US.
