Have you seen the new HC3 Lite? I really can't understand this. Not only Fibaro shipped HC3 totally unfinished on the software side (we never had zwave, rf, btle working, and it's full of bugs), but also releases a new Home Center (Lite?) version with a better Z-Wave chipset (ZWave 700). That's far from reasonably. Why in the hell would someone release a lite version of something that's better than the actual "Pro" version, and even before finishing the software implementat
no matter if you take 500 or 700 series, the transfer rate is exact the same, max 100kBps.
100 bulbs on same time means on both, one by one turn on, get ack, turn next on , get ack ... (yes, one can do it faster with bc/mc/distributed zwave/ association proxy, but the result is exact same for both at the end of the day. Yes, there might be advantage of "faster" Cortex M4 core vs. 8051, but we talking about 100kBps, and 8051 in the zw500 can drive two uarts at 230k).
