So hear me out on this. I know it seems a little counter intuitive to what Hubitats as much local as possible design directions, but I think this could add value. I am really looking at this as being a device for homes with multiple hubs or simply environments that stear away from zwave and zigbee and primarily stick to loval lan only.
First the reason I have even thought about it is all of the talk for folks that use second hubs and why. It seems there are good reasons for it. Even as i continues to expand my setup i am seeing it more and more. For me it would really be about getting seperation between what appear to be power hungry cloud or local lan connected devices and the lean and fast zigbee/zwave environment. The most intensive apps on my hub are by far anything to do with lan or cloud devices.
With hub mesh it should be fine to seperate them out and allot of folks already do this.
Clearly known benefits of a second hub are not in question, but would it make sense to have a version of the hub that didn't have zigbee or zwave radios. Would those radio removals reduce cost and overhead enough to have it make any sense to even provide that option. My guess is probably no but i was still curious about the possibility.
