We are making announcements today:
The problems we’ve had with our supply chain have been resolved; a shipment of hubs will soon be headed our way. We expect to announce availabilty to place orders soon. If you want to be notified of this, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are pleased to announce that the hubs coming are a new model, Model C-7. This hub’s features are the same as our previous Model C-5, except in one important regard: The C-7 features a new 700 series Z-Wave chip, upgraded from the 500 series in the C-5. The C-7 has a new Z-Wave stack in the platform software that supports a number of new Z-Wave features, including S2 security and SmartStart. The 700 chip is frequency agile, meaning that every Z-Wave region is supported with the hub's internal radio, with the region selectable in the web user interface. Beyond these changes to Z-Wave, the C-7 is identical to the C-5 in terms of CPU, memory, flash storage and Zigbee functionality, and has the same form factor. The C-7 is FCC, CE, AUS/NZ and RoHS certified.
Expect a series of announcements from us over the coming weeks concerning pricing and availability of Hubitat Elevation Model C-7, more details on Z-Wave features, and new capabilities of the software platform. Also, stay tuned for information about a new service to be introduced that will allow the migration of a complete hub setup from one hub to another, including all paired Zigbee and Z-Wave devices.
Thank you for your continuing support of Hubitat during these difficult times.
