However, we will have hardware platforms that will have all of the above, including RF433....(as well as 4G)..
We will provide the most comprehensive controllers/hubs platforms.

As long as will be an easy path of migration from Vera.
Not all of us are engineers .....

I'm not seeing anything about RF433 intergration, is this radio included in the USB sized ATOM?

This specific radio is not included in this version of USB Atom.
Because Atom is very cheap and multiple controllers act as one, you will be able to buy zwave, zigbee etc Atoms and just plug them wherever you want and they will all act as one. This way customers don't have to spend money on protocols they don't use.
However, we will have hardware platforms that will have all of the above, including RF433....(as well as 4G)..

Thank you melih, thats what i am looking for 1 hardware that can have most of the radios and 4G!, in that regard, i do integrations, in the updates side, will you move to a monthly basis updates like every second Tuesday of the moth?. And on the controller side as i understood Ezlo is looking more for integrator and big telecom (that is what i got from CES2019) will there be a platform to manage controllers? ( configurations, alerts , online/ offline, updates ) that would be great to help costumers and our business ( not to mention our sanity). one example of this controller is the unifi controller from Ubiquiti that has help us tremendously in being in business.

Thanks!

When speaking of backwards compatibility does this include 3rd party apps such as PLEG and Reactor?

^^^ Also backward compatibility with existing Hardware.
If we are tied into ATOM's for different frquencies etc. then it would be goodbye from many of us.
Drawing a long bow........it seems to be a concept that Zippato are using with add-on modules which is fine if you are just starting but not practicial if you already have existing Hardware.

I don't quite understand your point.

Backward compatibility is for new firmware on old hardware. If you have old hardware with frequencies you want...just continue to use it...we will give you better firmware for it......

Will the updated firmware also be available for Vera 3 models?

Will I be able to plug my RFCom and UZB into ATOM (this seems vague so far) or will there be a intermediate hub liek a RasPi that all of this needs to be plugged into? I'm not seeing how these will be connected.

2 different firmware
1)based on RTOS
2)based on Linux

we will be providing and maintaining both. And both of them will have our new brand new command classes.

I am still missing the point :( why would you want to plug UZB into Atom?

The Atom has a USB stick like housing, so you need to plug it into a USB port for power. It does not have any USB ports it self. Just look here https://ezlo.com/projects-solutions/ezlo-atom/

Will there also be a hub with a LAN connector? I dont't like these WIFI-only devices.

I second both ideas. An Ethernet port  (with the hub set to DHCP by default) will ALWAYS be able to join the network by do nothing more than plugging in the cable.  A PoE hub makes power backup very simple.
