New Hubitat Elevation Model C-7 Available

I may start moving things one at a time to my C5 device as I move most of my automations to node-red. Shrug.


Most of my 75 devices except my garage door openers (that tend to want to be close to the hub to pair) are easy enough to get to.

Like I said - not the end of the world. :slight_smile:

I'm surprised there isnt the ability to join a C7 to an existing zwave network as a secondary controller, remove the OG from the network and promote the C7 to primary.

I thought Z-wave had this ability natively?

Have you tried using HubConnect?

I havent got my C7 yet and dont have a HE - I'm on Vera atm.

ahhh, gotcha. If you do get multiple hubs, you can manage them using hubconnect. I plan on doing this as my C-7 will be my second hub, so i plan on having it (or my old hub) run some resource intensive apps while the other is my radio)

There's no option for DHL to Australia?

For some reason DHL rates are sky high right now to AUS. UPS has much better rates. DHL is twice as much.


I just went with the default option which is "US Postal Service First Class International".

It's due to the lack of passenger airline flights to Aus right now - most mail and freight is carried by airlines these days. From what i've been told by friends at Aussie Post, it's having a huge impact on any carrier that doesnt have their own aircraft fleet.

Makes sense. International air shipments are a mess right now, world wide.

I am particularly excited about the Repair a Z-Wave node database entry in the new software.

Any idea how long usps takes from US? I understand that UPS has its own fleet so wondering if it would be better to go the premium shipping option. (I'm not in a rush)

Usually 25-35 business days is my understanding, for items sent this month.

I have the same problem with login. Tested on the iPad as well.

Wow that's a seriously long time!

I've had some things take 2 weeks and some take 12, it's pretty random atm.

Apologies for what may be a stupid question, but I don't see it directly answered yet. Does the new c-7 also support the backup capability? I assume so, but your post specifically said c-5 only. I'd consider moving everything off my C-4 to a C-7 just for the complete backup.

It is not possible to migrate radios from C-4 to anything else, as that feature is not available in the radio stick.

Decided to take a punt on USPS too (like I said, I'm in no rush)

It's odd though, my shipping costs $26 vs your $23!
