New Hubitat Elevation Model C-8 Released

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Hubitat Elevation Model C-8 home automation hub. With new radios and hardware, the Model C-8 hub delivers a boost in performance while maintaining its commitment to truly local home automation.

New features of the Elevation Model C-8 hub include:

  • Z-Wave 800 radio
  • Zigbee 3.0 radio (IEEE 802.15.4)
  • Wi-Fi and ethernet network connectivity
  • External antennas for Z-Wave and Zigbee
  • USB-C power adapter

The new radios, combined with the external antennas, increase the range and reduce RF latency when communicating with the more than 1,000 smart home devices that are compatible with the Hubitat Elevation Model C-8 hub. With the recent addition of the Apple HomeKit integration, the Hubitat Elevation hub is also compatible with all of the major voice assistants from Apple, Google and Amazon.

Now with integrated Wi-Fi radio, setup is simpler than ever using Hub placement options are opened up, no longer requiring an Ethernet connection. Ethernet is still the recommended best form of hub connectivity.

A free migration tool allows current Hubitat Elevation Model C-5 and Model C-7 owners to transfer all of their automations and Z-Wave and Zigbee devices to the new Model C-8 with just a few clicks. Our Hub Protect subscription service will now support backup and restore of Zigbee radio as well as Z-Wave radio and then entire user setup for C-8.

The new Zigbee radio in the Model C-8 is Matter/Thread capable, and a platform update to add Matter compatibility is expected later this year.

The Model C-8 hub is available now for purchase at
