    Upgrade from the HS3 version

    Is it necessary to upgrade to the HS4 version our can I continue using the HS3 version? Are there significant differences between them?

    Now that I have an HS4 version, I no longer allow future versions of the HS3 version to run under HS4. So you can keep running your HS4 version, but you will no longer be able to upgrade HS3 versions if I make any future changes, bug fixes, etc. There are no significant differences; once I came out with a 3.X and a 4.X, they're now based on the shared stuff where it comes to talking to Honeywell.

    The issue is that when I make a change, I have to test:
    • Fresh install on Windows of the HS3 version
    • Fresh install on Linux of the HS3 version
    • Upgrade from pervious version on Windows of the HS3 version
    • Upgrade from previous version on Linux of the HS3 version
    • Fresh install on Windows of the HS4 version
    • Fresh install on Linux of the HS4 version
    • Upgrade from pervious version on Windows of the HS4 version
    • Upgrade from previous version on Linux of the HS4 version
    By not allowing the HS3 version to run on HS4, I'm reducing the effort required by 33%, and it further improves the ability to troubleshoot and communicate since 3.X always = HS3 and 4.X always = HS4.

      Is there some reason you are reluctant to upgrade? In case you were assuming it costs more, I do not charge for upgrades.

        Thank you for the quick response. What you wrote makes complete sense. There was no real reason to ask other than finding time to get it done. When upgrading do I use the same license used for the HS3 version?

        I have to compliment you for this plug in. It works amazingly well.

          Thanks! I appreciate the feedback

          There's a coupon process for getting the free upgrade - that part is out of my control. You can read about that here: https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/hs...54#post1577854
