I feel like I haven’t seen a firmware update for the SmartThings Mesh WiFi hubs in ages. These have frequent bugs as well that I would assume would be patched, but nothing to date. The firmware has been stuck at 000.027.00010.
- Hub drops offline randomly but maintains a solid green LED
- HUB_DISCONNECTED glitches are more frequent in these than the V3 hubs
- Fatal flaw - if hub has issue with ST cloud, Plume cannot operate in standalone. So when service outages occur, it takes the WiFi down with it.
- Cannot disable Plume/WiFi, so if you use one of these and buy a different router system, you’re going to have to nuke your smart home configuration to get rid of the old WiFi.
A status update on this model would be extremely appreciated.
