Is there a timeline for Zigbee 3.0 support? I’m interested in using Illumra Zigbee wireless batteryless self-powered (energy-harvesting) Decora rocker switches (http://illumra.com/products/wireless-light-switches/zigbee-switch/), but they require Zigbee Green Power compatibility.

@tpmanley , since the zigbee green power profile is included in zigbee 3.0 , Will these switches (several now being released under the “friends of Hue” program) work with the smartthings hub models that support zigbee 3.0?

And does the V3 hub support Zigbee 3.0 now? Or is that coming in the future?

Thanks! :sunglasses:

@JDRoberts, the Hub v3 launched with Zigbee 3 support. In order to get Zigbee 3 certified we had to support the Green Power Proxy feature. However that alone does not let the hub communicate with a Green Power devices. In order to that we need to be a Green Power sink or combo device and unfortunately the Zigbee stack we’re currently using doesn’t support that. My hope is to update the stack down the road to a newer version that has more Green Power support and then we should be able to support these Green Power devices.
