Should I upgrade from HE C5 to C8?

So I have a Hubitat C5 that I've owned for a few years. I also have a HOOBS hub. I'm trying to understand what I would gain/realize by upgrading to the C8.

I'll just be "that guy" and say.... If everything is working fine, and there isn't something you need to do that you can't already, then leave it alone.

That said - the main C8 changes/benefits = zwave 800, zigbee 3.0, external antennas (better signal), Matter support (at some point)


Thank you!!


FWIW, I anticipate Matter will likely extend to earlier Hubitat Elevation models as well. Although obviously, they will have to make use of a thread border router on the same network.
