    I don’t deny that Gen1 devices do technically work with Gen2 hub.
    But the software has on/off toggle buttons as the main interface, and it is impossible to have reliable operation using toggling when the software has no idea what the starting state of the device is.
    All they need to do to resolve this is change gen1 devices to have separate on and off buttons, then all would be fine.

    Great info Automation and h3mp. I’m really interested in this as I’ve been holding off upgrading to Gen 2 due to all the issues (particularly the poor range).

    If the poor range issue has now been resolved then I might take the plunge and start investing in Gen 2 devices and do a gradual upgrade as I replace / add devices.

    Really appreciate you both taking the time and trouble to post on the forums about your experiences as it’s very difficult to get good, un-biased opinions on the web about this stuff.

    Cheers :)

    Many thanks for the updated feedback, it is good of you both to think of others (like myself!) who can benefit from this positive news.

    Regards

    I wrote a post here yesterday, which was showing but has now vanished after I edited it to add a simple separator line. How odd!

    I have just downgraded to the Gen 1 Link. I had so many problems with the Link Plus -
    I primarilly bought with Call for Heat in mind – this is not available for Link Plus as the Web App does not work
    For some reason, I was unable to create a heating automation which had a specific temp in.

    I was able to get LWRF to send me an older hub and after some tweaking I am now happy with my set up.

    I would say avoid Link Plus like the plague (my experience is purely heating!)
