For anyone wondering, this one is the version 1 of the hub. Here are the model numbers for different generations of the hub:

F-H-ETH-001 : Hub Version 1 - Discontinued
STH-ETH-001 : Hub Version 1 - Discontinued
STH-ETH-200 : Hub Version 2 - First batch of V2 Hubs
STH-ETH-250 : Hub Version 2 - Second batch of V2 hubs
F-HUB-UK-V2 : Hub Version 2 - This seems like an European frequency hub
F-HUB-US-2 : US Hub Version 2 - This is another US frequency hub

I think it's Version 2 of the hub, but I could be wrong. The model number listed is F-H-ETH-001. According to
https://support.smartthings.com/h...do-I-have-

F-H-ETH-001 is a Version 2. It also lists on the BestBuy description "Battery Backup" which is a feature of v2 (I know product descriptions can be unreliable).

Given Smarthub goes on sale for $49.99 a few times a year and echo dot goes for about $29 or less on Prime Day. Combo is really worth about $79.99


Even less when combined with Citi or Amex $ off promos if you're lucky.

This is NOT a deal. Samsung has sold the hub for $50 off and on for the last year or so and the echo dot's are regularly available for $30. Unless you have that best buy card that's getting 11% back on all purchases this is not the deal you are looking for. You can do better.

I needed a Smartthings and don't feel like waiting months for another deal like it so yes it's a deal to me. I can only find one or two entries on slickdeals in 2018 for a $50 hub.

That's fine.The slickest deals are only meant for those with patience. Picked my Smarthub up for $11 after Amex $30 off deal and courtesy credit and my Echo Dot for $20 after discounts. Quite a few even got Free dots in recent years.



But if you need immediate gratification, this is about as good as it gets for today.

Even used v2's go for $50. If you got it for 28.75 its a helluva deal if it isn't in shit condition.
