Like compound interest, attrition is a helluva force.  And it lets company PR departments make technically true bullshit statements.

>How can you tell if the are Hubitat compatible

I usually pick devices that have been mentioned as installed & working in forum threads. My device needs so far have been pretty simplistic.  But I did screw up and buy a keypad that was a new version (v3) thinking that it was the version HE had working.  As mentioned upstream, the devs are adding devices at a blazing pace, so I just put it aside and waited rather than whine for help in the forum.  Looks like they've fixed it.

>everything was half price

IIRC, at one of the early pubcons at the Islington the rate was $1.31/pound.  The euro was at 1/1.

I haven't followed it in detail, but I believe some wifi devices are being converted to local network.  Search on TP-Link.

It's confusing at first, all the various SH 'channels.' I bought a few wall outlets and a couple of switches (z-wave, so I ended up not using them). Getting a table lamp to come on at sunset was how I began the trial-and-error & testing phase.

Most items seem to be covered for core functionality,  but may have special features that need a custom driver. For instance,  a switch might also report humidity. It would work generically as a switch but the complete driver would allow it to execute actions as a switch OR humidity sensor.

Hubitat's 'problem' is that it can seemingly use any device if someone writes the driver ...and there are hundreds of devices with more pouring on the market.  But there are favorites,  so they have been operating on a triage system.

Water Cooler / Hell, I'm going with 22s
« on: December 06, 2018, 07:17:16 PM »
My 90s-early 2000s Grand Caravans got decent highway mileage -probably 21. They had 15-inch wheels.

My 2010 Grand Caravan has 16-inch wheels and gets 23mpg at 70mph. I'm impressed, given the frame size and load capacity.

Last year, I picked up a low-mileage 2015 GC with power-everything.  It has 17-inch wheels.  Six hours on the interstates averaging 75mph with a heavy-ish load and it's clocking in at 25.5mpg. I'm really impressed.
