Has anyone seen the specifications for the new generation ?
Whats is the improved range they talk about ?
Is it based on a mesh system ?
Do the PIR support two way also ?
Do all the units support two way ?
Will the old units still work with the new system, but without the reporting function ?
I’d be interested in that info too!
From an early conversation with support, the new hub will support the old devices, but will not bring HomeKit compatibility to them. Unfortunately, I have my whole house lightwaved with 1st gen products so will not be upgrading wholesale… rather too expensive!
No one seems to know too much about the specs ?
Not sure what that means !
My understanding through reading the replies on FBook posts etc
The need for G2 has come from Apples demand for two way communication, this requires a new hub and new equipment that communicates 2 way which most of the existing equipment apart from heating and energy monitor isn’t
At launch they are only launching switches and sockets, no relays, pirs etc, heating / energy is already compatible
The Gen 1 stuff will work with the new hub, but not with homekit, so unless you want to work with homekit everything is still ok
As I don’t need homekit, I will see no effect until I want to buy no kitLWRF light switches in several rooms, WIFI Link, Energy Monitor, Socket x3 and multiple On/Off adapters. PIR controlling lights and doorbell utilising light feature. TRV's for heating. Relays for garden and outside lamps Linked with Amazon Alexa via a dot
