2 years ago, the hot spare thread was closed with no practical solution.
I think the C8 may have changed things.
Our custom smarthome is in rual western montanna is designed to have zero single points of failure.
The lighting and controls for the entire home are zigbee and zwave based with zero physical controls.
From dual wells to hvac everything has a hot spare. Except the hubitat.
Does the new radio migration capibility allow c8 to c8 migration?
I suspect yes. Is a C8 hot spare configuration now possible with two hubs using the same backup?
Can one hub be configured to watch the other and take over on failure?
Here is the business opertunity for HE:
Sell pairs of C8s with hub protect as a package.
More than just saving time, this system makes it possible to construct homes like ours (1/3rd less wire) that do not risk going dark, even for a few days, due to a single point controller failure.
I would aapreciate an answer from HE soon enough to take advantage of introductory pricing on the C8. I have one on the way and if the answer to hot sparing is yes, I will be buying another.
