Might want to keep an eye out for a cheap Gen 2 hub, or if you can get your hands on a Gen One, they might still be doing free upgrades to the Gen Two Iris hub.

Reason being, I'm fairly sure these need, out of box, a firmware update due to a battery draining bug. CR123's aren't too cheap.

It uses two, but runs fine on one, (at least mine does). If you're hand you might rig up a rechargae solution with a LiIon pack and a MCP73833 based something for recharging it.

Would Samsung's smartthings hub update the firmware?

I know with a recent ST hub you now have the capability to update firmware on certain light bulbs.

Uncertain! I have a new in box retail version of it, never opened.

I might just have to pop it out and try it with ST.

*Most* of the Gen2 ZigBee stuff is OEM'd by Centralite. But, it's like anything, you get what you pay for. They manufacture to spec. So for example, the keypad, is a nice unit. The buttons are nearly garbage. Those should be on super clearance if you poke around at them.

IIRC, those devices (G2 Centralite OEM / Iris ZigBee) are now officially supported on SmartThings. They do not all have 100% functionality (I think like, the door sensor is missing temperature). You can use the readily available custom handlers for "full" support.

Also, I'm not sure if even the "official" support is hub local.

Oh, and the Motion Sensors are FANTASTIC!

Right..

I'd like to use this keypad as a door chime.

If I could get two... Add one upstairs and downstairs. Hopefully I found one in Stock around me.

The keypad also has a short range motion sensor in it....

Thanks, I found 3 near me at the $10 price! Now I've just gotta figure out how I want to use these. We used to constantly set off the alarm by accident when we had Iris gen 1, so we just stopped using it, lol...
