@fribbledom I wonder if there's a consumer group in EU that could look into this.

The 2 years we have for noticing that something we bought doesn't comply with what was advertised becomes tricky when the manufacturer can modify the product at any time.

@fribbledom A real and sincere thank you for posting this - it gave me just enough time, the late night before I travel for the holidays for the week, to set my router to block my Hub (no small part of my OpenHab home automation setup) from reaching the Internet for updates.

Of course, it didn't give me enough time to test those changes, so we'll see what works and what doesn't when I get home...
