I'm ok with how this went down. I will be able to move all V2 stuff to a different hub, and they are paying us full original retail for the stuff that won't move to another platform. As with all electronics, prices are much lower now, so I can get a lot more gear for less money than they are giving me. And I get modern updated equipment. Does anyone really want to keep using those ginormous V1 smart plugs?
I agree with you guys. This was a great deal for me also. I bought systems for 4 properties and I'm getting back plenty. I didn't pay full price for anything. I always bought on sale or even from the clearance rack. I also learned quick that just because my nearest store had an item for one price the one on the way to another property may be different. I would stop at different Lowe's stores just to do a quick stroll through. Also did some Internet shopping in different states stores. I got some great bargains. The places I put the V3 systems in along with the new battery cameras I made out great!!! I'm waiting on an Abode system to try out this week. It seems comparable to IRIS as a dual system.
