Lots of news on the smart home hub front, but this news perhaps passed under the radar of most:
According to Smart Home Show listener Caleb, he got news via the Revolv support team that as of December this year, support for the Revolv hub will be ending. According to his exchange with the Revolv team via email, they've notified him that while the hub should continue working, the company (which got acquired by Google last year) will not be supporting the hub beyond December.
While this isn't huge news, it's just indicative of how Google never really intended to show much love and support for the Revolv community, as indicated by the fact they've also shut down the Revolv community page.
Also, this stands in stark contrast to the news coming out of SmartThings, which got acquired by Samsung for $200 million. This week SmartThings announced the SmartThings 2 hubs is finally available for preorder, as well as news of a SmartThings/Echo integration was leaked.
