I'm telling you.  It doesn't have to be off-brand junk.  Anything with a few years on it even if is top of the line name brand stuff is likely to just be ignored.

I think the vendors will be happy to have a good reason to push people into buying new hardware.  Most vendors will see this as a sales opportunity.

This is quite possible true.. But stuff like alexa, nest, harmony - these big branded stuff better update their shit.. Or there will be a public uproar ;)

Nest for example.. Not something you need to replace every few years.. Should get a good 5 years out of such device at a min.. The protect has a life that they state of 10 years...  So they better freaking update its code ;)
