exactly what is going to happen in august 2018?

will acurite modify the firmware of smartHUBs as they did during the forced firmware updates in 2016?

or will acurite servers simply no longer respond to connections from smartHUBs?

I feel all that will happen is they will block the MAC address of all the Smarthubs from there servers . This is what they say on there official blog
 
 " With the new release of the AcuRite Access, we have discontinued production of the My AcuRite smartHUB, and will be ending service and support for it effective August 31, 2018. This means that after September 1, 2018 the smartHUB will no longer be able to publish to My AcuRite.

Hello Mwll,

As of September 1 2018 the smartHUB will no longer be able to publish to My AcuRite. If you have a device that is registered to My AcuRite you should receive an email with a discount code for the AcuRite Access. The list price of the Access is $129.99. We are offering a $90 savings. It is a full credit for the price of the smartHUB that you may have purchased. If you did not receive the discount code please follow the link below and fill out the information. Please let us know if there is anything we can assist you with.
