Hi @jgab ,   BRAVO! I totally agree with your post. 👍   I have invested so much time in developing user friendly UHAS, and was many time thrown back thousand steps by Fibaro experi

I'm a bit lost in the cars and wheels metaphors   The hardware of the HC3 is able to support devices the HC2 can't - I have no problem with that. And it would have been a reason for me to u

The "embargo" aka communication ban has been lifted. This means beta testers are allowed to talk about the product and "firmware 5". This is a bit sooner than I anticipated, I am not ready to comment

We have been waiting for a HC3 for the last 5 years plus after the long list of issues majority of us have had with the software. The actual hardware is totally fine and it is upgradable, all they need to do is totally revamp and build the OS / controller software from ground up. The HC3 or HC2 v2 needs ZwavePlus addon support and it is highly unlikely people would drop the HC2 for a HC3 due to costs

If Fibaro would officially announce that the will present a HC3 or a HC2 version 2 in the near future, or on CES 2020.

They will left behind with a unsellable stock of HC2.

 

So look for shops where the HC2 is "out of stock"

If there getting more shops with out of stock message,  then they are maybe reducing the production of the HC2.

Nice - even though it doesn't reveal any new features.
Rumors said they might implement zigbee and other standards like some of the competition, but it doesn't seem to be mentioned (z-wave is mentioned)

They can announce everything they want at CES 2020 but they need to provide a ETA. We all want to know when we can buy these new products😊

 

For example, the already mentioned, Fibaro Siren. Still not available,  and if you ask for it they still can’t provide an ETA after months😔

 

So they can announce everything and then take years before it’s ready for sale.

 

But I’m very curious what the new features and improvements are compared to the HC2. Native Homekit and Zigbee support would be nice.

they can make a homecenter lite with only zigbee, so you can add that as a slave gateway.

Looks and sounds nice the homecenter 3 but rather concentrate on the software stability

I see the new app software in the picture but the new android phoe app homecenter is far far from good. even after one year!

If the software is also bad on the homcenter 3 or take that long for stability I don't know...

I think (guess) that hc3 is running the same software as hc2. Both will run on Linux.

And i don't think there will be a zigbee controller in the hc3, fibaro has no zigbee devices and therefore no money to be made.

Athom Homey has no Zigbee or Z-wave devices, but they still provide connection for both.
My primary reason for selecting Fibaro Home Center 2 over Homey was the lack of ethernet connection in Homey.

That is something else,

zipato started with controllers and started later selling devices, homey made a controller (Kickstarter) but there are only so many controllers to be sold. So the made a pro version.

people with a homey would buy a pro version. but after that, what then?

 

i think if fibaro didn't had there devices they would already be out of buissines.

 

(there are just that many people who would buy a controller)
