The M2 Hub is now available in Czechia, Slovakia and Sweden, and it will be followed shortly by Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and Spain in early 2021.

Moreover with an IR transmitter built in, the M2 highlights the infrared control function allowing users to control existing IR home appliances, such as turning on TVs and air conditioners, from any part of the room by voice command and local automations. Users have more flexibility when installing the hub thanks to its Micro-USB power port, and it no longer takes up the socket space. The Micro-USB port also allows optional battery backup with a power bank.
