G'day hubitaters (do you have cool nic yet?),
I'm just prep'ing to take the home auto plunge and had thought I was settled on smartthings (which has just come to AUS) until I came across this hub and the benefits of local control.
I'm mostly wanting to automate (using zigbee sensors mostly) for control and security alongside Google Home, IFTTT, Arlo Pro 2, Broadlink IR and likely Philips Hue + Sengled for lights.
I've noticed that the older hub is available for AUS, but not the newer C-5 version. Is anyone aware of whether the newer hub is likely to be produced for other markets? Does it matter? I have a single story home and am thinking that the single strength shouldn't be too much of an issue with zigbee sensors and such. Does the integrated radio provide better performance than the usb ones?
