It appears that the long wait for the new Iris hub might just be over; a new Iris hub has at last appeared at lowes.com. The listing on Lowe’s site is absent many details outside of what the hub does. The hub listing describes a Model #1, SKU 488795 with an initial price of $49.99.
The photo clearly shows the old 1st generation hub (model 520), but this is the first time this SKU has appeared at Lowes.com which is likely just a placeholder for now. There are also no ratings or reviews available in the product listing at this time too.
It is not currently possible to purchase the hub in store or online.
