Just getting into Smart Home and everywhere I read said the SmartThings hub v3 was best for Z-Wave and Zigbee devices but I guess they’ve been discontinued. The odd thing thing is that there are so many smart devices which say (hub required) but looking for hubs is almost impossible. Does Samsung have a new products? Are hubs becoming obsolete? Would like to know how to get started.
they should become available in the next few weeks.
it was available to order on amazon but just turned to currently unavailable but that should change soon.
Samsung has decided to no longer sell or support the hardware devices, but they will still provide the cloud and the app. They have partnered with Aeotec to take over the hub and some of the other hardware devices.
There are a number of other options you can consider as well, it just depends on what you’re looking for. Smartthings is good, but it’s all about finding what’s a good match for your own needs.
You can buy the wifi version here until Aeotec ships
