Hi , I ve seen some of the recent announcements re ST off loading the hardware to Aerotec, but Id like to get some clarity on a couple of points if anyone knows please?
First one is the Aeotec V3 hub (advertised as works with Smartthings) the replacement and natural upgrade from a V2/V3 ST hub?
If so will all zigbee device etc work and integration with Hive, Sonos, Nest etc. work.
Will the ST IDE therefore be redundant and how does Aerotec manage the customisation that IDE helps facilitate?
Or if the Aerotec hub is not the next step is Aertec Autopilot the way forward ? and again same questions.
Not sure if its just me, (maybe I need to research and read more) but I am now totally confused with the direction in which ST are going (apart from dropping the hw bit)
I’ve already tried moving to Hubitat but that was an awful experience so I am hoping the Aerotec route will be better.
My worries is i’m on a V2 hub with no way of backing up the config and any future migration looks to be potentially a very manual and time consuming process.
Should I consider a move now to something like Aeotec or wait until ST clarify their roadmap?
Any views or input welcome
Many thanks Andy
