“Named as one of Time’s Best Gadgets of 2014, SmartThings is not content to rest on its laurels, rolling out new hardware and premium services that may make it the most clever smart home setup, yet.

Available in the summer, a new SmartThings hub will sport a better processor and backup battery power, making this a connected home system that stays in sync even when the power is out. In addition, the company’s motion and multi-sensors are slimming down, providing more subtle home monitoring.

But the smart home is all about being inter compatible with other products and services, something this system does better than anyone. For instance, the SmartThings hub will now play nice with everything from August locks to Racchio’s lawn irrigation controller. Beat that, McFly!” – TIME Magazine

    Will the old hub be compatible with Rachio, or only the new one? I guess it depends if you’re connecting to them through bluetooth or wifi.
