SmartThings and Aeotec – A Connected Family
Availability of Aeotec SmartThings hardware
The newly branded Aeotec SmartThings Hub and sensors were originally due to land in Australia mid January 2021 – However, like a lot of plans throughout 2020 (we are looking at you Covid) – the rebranding and manufacturing process has not been as smooth as we would have liked. There have been some supply chain issues for key components that has caused a significant delay in manufacturing. It has now been confirmed that SmartThings stock will land late August 2021. We have confirmation from the factories that manufacturing has begun and there will be no further delays.
At SmartHome, we are delighted to be a close partner of Aeotec here in Australia and New Zealand – and we look forward to bringing the new Aeotec branded SmartThings hardware to our valued smart home community. We are confident the wait will be worth it, with not only the SmartThings products we have come to know and love becoming available again in late August… Aeotec have also indicated they will be expanding the SmartThings hardware lineup – with some exciting new additions to the SmartThings ecosystem due for release throughout 2022 and beyond.
