Replying to the announcement Introducing Hub Protect:
First of all, I'd like to state that I have no problem with you these subscription services. It helps me as a user by knowing that you'll be around to keep supporting these hubs. The point of my question is to assess that I understand the situation correctly.
The announcement makes it pretty clear what Hub Protect offers. This is a significant value that other hubs do not have (can't think of any offhand) that probably took a whiile to develop and test, so using subscription to help repay development costs makes total sense to me
To clarify the siituation for those unwilling or unable to pay, they can make backups of their hub config Backup and Restore - Hubitat Documentation, but
this won't include Zigbee and Z-Wave device pairing which must be redone
config reloads on different hardware is not supported
Have I captures the situation exactly? Anything I overlooked?
Again-- this post is for clarity on the alternatives, and I am not in any way complaining and I very much hope that no replies to this post are used to complain. You can complain in another thread, I hope this thread can focus on information provided
