Hi,
Thanks for a great update on the FW and App. 
Is there any change for how many Multy X nodes that are supported? I would like to use 4.

    Primary Multy --> Second Multy
    Primary Multy --> Third Multy --> Fourth Multy
    Yes, it can be hybrid Star/Daisy chain.

    With Daisy Chain, it can support maximum 3 hops, 4 nodes. But the performance will be declined very much with more hops.
    For example:
    Multy X Node_1 ))) Hop1 ((( Multy X Node_2 ))) Hop 2 ((( Multy X Node_3 ))) Hop 3 ((( Multy X Node_4

    Thanks.

    My setup would be hybrid star/Daisy chain.

    Meaning:
    Primary Multy --> Second Multy
    Primary Multy --> Third Multy --> Fourth Multy

    Does this setup make sense?

    @Joakim,
    If these 4 Multy evenly covers your whole space and they are in moderate distance between each other, It should work fine. End devices near 1st/2nd/3rd would work great, only rest near 4th would have little speed drop due to more hops. You can do some speedtest with your setup.
