FWIW, I’m still SO blahed that there is no migration for V1 owners, and not even a commitment for migration capabilities for V2 owners. If, after going through all the necessary pain there would be to manually move v1 to v2, I could at least be guaranteed I’d never have to do it again 1) if my V2 hub broke, or 20 a V3 hub came out, I’d do it anyway.
@slagle or someone else, is there any migration type that is being worked on? Like at least from one v2 to a replacement v2 hub?
I read that article stating that V1 to V2 wasn’t happening. What the article didn’t state explicitly was whether V2 to V2 (when a hub goes bad), or V2 to Vnext was going to happen. Knowing that I’d only have to manually move to V2 would be bearable if I knew it was that last time I’d have to do it. @slagle?
Assuming one eventually sees the light of day, there is no way I will buy a v3 hub unless there is a migration utility available on release. I’m not going to manually migrate 120+ devices (and probably more whenever the next hub is released). If an unfocused and scatter-brained company like Wink can do it, ST can do it and better IMO. I really, really love ST so far and I do hope a v3 is released and has some great new features, but they have to come through on a few promises that they have yet to fulfill on v2 before I would buy another hub.
Exactly. I tend to believe a v3 is in the works, but I won’t settle for a “we’ll have a migration tool within 6 months of release” or something like that. They have to have it on day 1 and they also have to come through with total local control for me to bite.
I don’t think I have much choices. I have more devices than most people but if my V2 crapped out. There’s no way that I am going to move to Wink or Vera and have half my devices not working. Yeah, it’s crap but not the end of the world.
