Not sure how good or well supported these are (I've never used them) but these seem to be a rather good deal.

Just bumping this for all to see as it is actually a pretty good deal for a Zwave + Zigbee hub... Also shipping is actually free.

 

Talk Is Cheap is a Spark subsidiary I believe. I've bought a bit through them.

Thanks, got one. These hubs are made by Aeotec and it's good to have both Zwave and Zigbee built into one hub.

Just had a quick look out of interest for Home Assistant integration.

The API is via cloud, not local, so need an active internet connection. So not of interest to me.

"Integration of this device happens via the cloud and requires an active internet connection. Home Assistant will be notified as soon as a new state is available."

 

V2 used 1.4 watts, I assume pretty similar for V3.

Many thanks. I've grabbed one as a spare (at this stage).




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Thanks - I grabbed one of these over the weekend and it's good to hear the OP has had previous dealings with the supplier/company as I was initially skeptical about the overall 'look' of the website. 

 

Of those that have ordered, have you received a confirmation email or any contact at all from the company? They've taken my payment but I've not received any thing from them...

It is a pretty old site. I remember it from when I was working for Telecom back in 2010. I actually ordered a hub too (why not at that price) and am pretty sure you get an email once a product has shipped.

I didn't even get the email I was advised I'd receive to verify my account.

At least there’s a record on the Order History page. Did anyone dare to get the Grade 2 device?

This is correct. Got an email stating that the product has shipped with a tracking link.

I didn't need it but couldn't pass on the $30 bargain! 😬 

 

P.S - Have to agree, site looked quite dodgy. Still haven't received any emails but can see my order in the history on website.
