Been agonozing over this.....ive never held off on an update!
No one can answer this for you, of course. Try it, roll back if it causes issues. Or don't.
Works fine for me, but that's on my system - not yours.
Which hub? For C7, absolutely in mine, and I would expect many others' opinions. For C5, there are some folks w/some issues on the newer FW.
Since it's pretty darn easy to roll back, I think @JasonJoel's has it right. Try it, roll back if it's troublesome for you. On C7 I would expect it will be better.
I use the current firmware on 2x C-4, 1x C-5, and 2x C-7 with no issues to speak of.
But success/failure or issues/no issues is so dependent on the devices, drivers, and apps you are running that this isn't a very meaningful data point.
I did it finally after hanging around .118 on a C7 for what it seems like forever. I noticed one of my ancient inovelli plug wasn't reporting state and was reportedly fixed on .145.
I had my hub on autoreboot in the early morning but I turned it off yesterday to see what kind of performance I'm going to get without any reboots.
I don't do any automatic reboots any more. BUT while I have a lot of zwave/zigbee devices, I have very few apps running or cloud/LAN integrations. So my hub may be less loaded than some.
Push it. Push it!!
Lol advice before me is likely better though.
When I was in the USMC there was this big red button in one of the data centers mounted to one of the poles. No one knew what it was for. I tried tracing out the wire to see what it went to but it went under the building. Not hitting the button drove me crazy.
Probably one of the army’s psych experiments. MUAHAHA, let’s see who will push the red button.
Back to the topic, my c-5 hubs have been the fastest on the latest version. I haven’t seen any of the spikes in latency I saw with earlier 2.2.3 versions. I also haven’t been auto rebooting my hub anymore. I have about 150 zigbee devices and maybe 20 z-wave plus.
Yea, on .145 I'm running an avg of .058 before on all previous versions it was averaging .126
That’s about my average as well on my main hub, even with Echo Speaks, HubConnect Server, Homebridge, and Alexa on the hub. My remote hub is closer to .1, but it has a lot of sensors on it and most of the ML and RM rules.
I run one Hubitat hub and 1 ST hub. I stuck all my shitty samsung tvs on ST and use hubconnect. About 160 devices now on HE. Also have a couple rbpi 4s for the envisalink, pi hole, and roomba stuff. Most my automations are in simple automation and motion. Maybe 10 or so in rm.
I was only still using Echo Speaks on SmartThings. About a week after .118 rolled out, I moved that over to my main hub and unplugged SmartThings. It’s nice not having zigbee channel 20 tied up for zero devices. I might have to get another Hubitat to replace it now since I have that free channel.
I hope the op lets us know if he pushed “update hub”.
That’s great to know.
I have a c5. Been very happy with the performance of the system but had seen soo many bug reports and hot fixes since the release of the c7 that I’ve really struggled with holding off.
The pressure to press the button is real:)
Since it seems to be so much faster after the nightly maintenance, I try to run the updates after everyone’s in bed.
I have total geek envy. I thought I had a lot of devices with like 10 zwave, 25 zigbee and 15 wifi (no cloud all local). I need to up my game.
Thanks for your service. If I worked where there was a button I would push it (kinda crazy that way). My boss once pushed a button in the datacenter, dumped $20K of Halon on the datacenter and cleared the building. Fun day...
I’m just doing my part for the economy
I have some really bad advice...
If you frequently keep an eye on sales at thesmartesthouse.com and frequently look for zigbee and zwave devices.... late at night when your resolve is low....you'll catch up! Promise
Good deals...but really feeding my addiction!

- about 6 contact sensors...2 on my freezer as i left it open before and lost half my stuff on the freezer
- a half a dozen motion sensors
- just bought that great deal on ebay for 10 eco link contact sensors for 45 bucks
- 10 zigbee leak detectors ( one under every sink, under my water heaters and under my dishwasher)
- 4 inovelli red dimmers and switches
- 6 zooz dimmers and switches that i just got on the labor dale sale ( need to install)
- 3 iris key fobs
- about 4 Casets Pico remotes ( another 4 in my fun drawer )

- 4 tradfri pucks in the fun drawer...once i discovered the Picos....stopped using the ikea
- all the gear ( including a raspberry pi / plastic enclosure, rs484 converter ) to automate my pool but need to learn how to program a raspberry pi or get someone to do it for me to program the - AqualinkD program)
im certain im missing some stuff...but the addiction is real
And now to go press the red button.......
Edit.....10 mins later.
Button pressed!...fingers crossed.
Use the water cop on the main and shutoff on the water tank.
