    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!

    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 kit

    LWRF 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
