Newbie in this forum . Does anyone know or have any idea when or if a newer version of the habitat is reaching UK . Dont really want to have one with a dongle hanging out ... ?
If you don't need Z-wave there is no need for the dongle I run dongle and Z-wave free, but that might not suit everyone.
Yes, there will be a version of the hub without sticks for the EU/UK
It’s called the C7 but I have no idea when it will be generally available.
Personally, I prefer the C3/4 as I use usb extension leads to put the sticks near the centre of my house and the hub in a rack in the garage.
Luckily where my hubs position is in the centre of the house, so I'm buzzing about the C7 . Once that is out I have 4 to buy, 2 for me and 2 for my in-laws.
Just need a seller over here. Could start selling it and a package then .
Thanks for this - good idea
Ah, the mythical C7.
Having a dongle can help in moving from one hub to another as a backup. I don’t know if there is something clever in the C7 to also support that.
What kit are you using for that, I tried a extension USB cable but it was like the USB stick wasn't getting enough power (it was less than a meter long)
I used an 'amplified' usb extension cable I got from Amazon
Can't remember which one though
I think mine are 5m
Ta shopping time
I'm pretty sure it was this one..
Thanks, dropped it in my basket, if I can go another week without a lock up I'll give it a try
