I have added a new thread specifically to discuss ordering and fulfillment issues for the new generation of hardware. I think as we move past the official announcement date, there is enough conversation on those specifics to warrant its own area:
LOL, you’ve got to calm down a bit.
order (an item of merchandise) before it is available, with the understanding that it will be shipped later.
Not sure where you picked up your expectations of what a pre-order is.
Agreed, some of these folks are out of control. It’s ridiculous.
Will GE Link bulbs run locally or will they still run in the cloud ?
Are we there? Are we there yet? Are we there now? Patience, my friend!
4 posts were merged into an existing topic: Hub 2 Backordered vs ships 5-7 days
Mine run locally
Prove it. No offense Tim, but seriously, how can you tell? I want video proof. Pull the ethernet cable and use a multi sensor contact open close to turn on off a ge bulb without the hub connected to the internet.
That is hilarious!!! Way to go Tim!
Thanks Tim! You guys keep up the good work.
Impressive …now make your siren go off under the same scenario and I will be REALLY impressed (and may not cancel my V2 Hub)
What about power on, and Ethernet unplugged, that’s the more likely scenario…
Okay, I should have said “activate your siren”
Battery Power Vs. Mains power… Hub still has power.
Just didn’t feel like pulling my tv stand apart to get the power cable
You forgot the pretty magician’s assistant waving a big hoop around it to show that there were no wires! =P
Oh come on. Even I could edit that… The crappy LG cell phone video, clearly staged.
I bet that wasn’t even your hub. Could have been a prop. Love the flashing blue led. Nice touch…
Who did you pay off screen to flip the light switch on and off? Was it Ben?
Also, the shadows are all wrong. I bet that was just a green screen.
That ethernet cable, come on, wasn’t even attached at the other end.
Also, notice that the focus is fixed for bot the hub and bulb… That isn’t possible with a crappy LG phone. Clearly two separate videos mixed together.
Ultimately, you had hours to prove it. I will give you props for putting this sham together so quickly.
(AND THIS IS ALL SARCASM)
Now, we have the first verifiable proof that the hub v2 is actually capable of local processing without internet connection or power.
Tim, you are awesome…
I used the guys that faked the Lunar Landing
Can we make actions happen when we lost the internet connection? let me explain myself:
if the internet goes out,turn on te siren to warm me.
if the hub is runnig on battery, send me a push notification telling me the power is out
Edit: If we cant, this is a good suggestion for a future update
