Now that firmware version 2.4.0 is available, the TSB portion of Zwave states:
“Z-Wave: •Panel support for Z-Wave version 6.81.03, which includes S2 security and SmartStart. (Note: 6.81.03 will only be loaded on panels that are manufactured with 2.4.0 and not for panels that receive 2.4.0 OTA)•SmartStart enables faster, easier enrollment by using the built-in Panel Camera to scan the QR code on SmartStart enabled devices. Simply scan the device and power it up”
Does that mean existing owners of IQ Panel 2/Plus need to buy new panels in order to receive the new zwave feature set? I just purchased a brand new IQ Panel 2 Plus about 1.5 months ago and it is a little concerning that early adopters, existing owners may be left behind with such an important Zwave feature set.
