I have a smartthings hub, but I am about to buy a new Samsung TV which has a smartthings hub built-in. I am thinking that it may be easier to use the TV as the main hub, but I’m wondering how easy it will be to move my devices over from my old hub to the TV?
1: Is there any disadvantages in using the TV hub over the dedicated smart-things hub?
2: Is there a way to simply transfer devices over from one hub to the other?
3: If not… do I need to remove the devices from the first hub before pairing them with the new one?
4: Is there a way of using both hubs simultaneously?
My one concern is that my new TV will be in the family room, which is at one end of the house… I am worried that the signal may not reach my office (on the floor above, at the opposite end of the house). Is this likely to be a problem? Is there a way to extend or repeat the signal?
