Smart Hub, 2-pack

Smart Hub, 2-pack

Is this a one pack or a 2 pack of hubs? And which generation? Gen 1 hubs are being phased out, so upgrading makes sense…IF this is a gen 3 hub or a 2 pack, so I can upgrade BOTH gen 1 hubs (my house and the folks.) But since the gen 3 hub is out, not sure it makes sense to buy a single gen 2 hub, especially since it is labeled a 2 pack. But the specs say 1 hub? Which is it woot?

Is there a third generation hub? There are three generations of bulbs, but I only know of two generations of hubs. The picture shows a second generation hub, but confirmation from Woot would help. Thanks!

Adding random characters to prevent this as being seen as spam since each product has it’s own topic, ugh Woot. : hwstjhsajtstrjsrktmsrkj

This is the 2nd generation. You can confirm this by searching part # “929001180603” or " Philips Hue 458471" on Amazon and seeing the comment section all states this is a 2nd generation.

I have never seen a reference to a 3rd generation hub, only 3rd generation hues.

So this needs batteries? Since when do these hubs need batteries?

Batteries: 4 AA batteries required (not included)

So, this arrived today. I got a box with one hub and a power supply.

For a two-pack, the price given was a great deal. For a single one, it’s about the going rate.

Oh no! Contact Woot CS. I’ll check from this end to see if something was set up incorrectly.

Same here, received just 1 hub.

Yes, we’re getting other contacts as well. We’re looking into what happened. These things always happen late on a Friday afternoon. We’re gonna try to resolve by the end of day but it could be Monday.

Got only 1 hub as well

Just got the CS email, they’re sending out a second one.

To those who only received one hub and then got the email saying a second hub would be sent: has anyone received theirs yet, or even gotten a shipment notice?
