thanks for detailed response @Jamie
No problems, can live without the LAN port just like the reliability of it more than the throughput.
I know that there can be a tendency for ppl to to hate change but I am also conscious that change for the sake of progress isn’t necessarily innovation or a better solution. On the web console front I do feel that this would be a fairly substantial mistake, I just can’t see how writing “flows” and configuration from a mobile device (even a big screened one) can be anything but frustrating. For direct comparison Imperihome tablet dashboard is fairly wizard driven and easy to use app but the moment I look to do anything remotely more difficult that requires much typing/copy and paste etc etc I immediately look to setup a remote desktop session cos its just so damn slow or frustrating to do much more than tap/drag and drop. Also bit weird from a customer front, might pick up more general users but I don’t even know how effective that will be, SmartThings already have a fair bit of the non techy users who dont care about heavy cloud reliance market covered.
The rest looks like it should be decent, looks like Remotec switches is good, sounds like Aeotec I will have to double check that it covers all the Aus versions of the devices I have.
The http request part, I was meaning something like e.g. http://credentials:homeyipaddress/scenename could execute a homey scene so that it can be called from other applications etc
