  4. I'm using a mix of 15 cameras which include Iris gen1 & gen2, Dahua and Amcrest. They are all connected to Blue Iris and I'm using a Homebridge plugin (homebridge-camera-ffmpeg v0.1.14) to connect them to HomeKit.

    SystronicRF system is now available to general public

    OK. I'll bite. what cameras are you using. Is this through Apple kit enabled device?
  6. Where there's a will there's a way...
  7. I can do the Dick Tracy bit with my Samsung Gear watch connected to the SmartThings Hub, as well as manually control lights and such. If it were possible to view cameras on the watch that would be handy. When I'm in the shop and Alexa announces "motion on breezeway" I could take a peek at the breezeway cameras from the watch. Watch can connect directly to Wi-Fi, doesn't require interfacing with a phone.
  8. Here is a better one.
  9. Can you send us some screenshots of you talking on that watch? Or better yet maybe a shoe phone?
  10. Alexa and Google Home both work with Hubitat and you can get Siri to work as well if you incorporate Homebridge. The added bonus of Siri is it lets me control all of my automations from my Apple Watch. The only thing they haven’t got working is the V1 keypad. I’ll take voice control over a 7 year old device any day. Here are some screen shots from my Apple Watch.
  11. I have found that historical data can be very useful. It helps in making minor adjustments to my home automation system.. I typically monitor the last 6 hours but can go back as far as I need to. I’m exporting all my Hubitat events to an InfluxDB running on a Raspberry PI. The reason I bring this up is since SystronicsRF runs on a RPi it should be possible to integrate this functionality. Here are some examples of what should be possible.
  12. Yes, you can design the dashboard pages with historical graphs too. Only down side is that you can't easily integrate with other services at the moment, so as you mentioned in an earlier post there is the UI issue of always being tied to the SRF web interface. I vaguely remember something about Amazon Alexa integration at some point, but maybe I was dreaming? That would point to an opening up of the system to some degree. I was hoping to make an integrated kitchen dashboard with controls for music, radio, data from the smart meters, plus control with SRF, but until there's an API or other integrations that's not going to be possible.
  13. Just curious to know if this page has the ability to show any historical data or if it’s just current states?
  14. With currently 88 devices running with the SRF Control System, system is performing very nicely. Have created a wall-mounted control panel using an older model leftover iPad. I, for the first time, have a control system that my wife is comfortable with and uses daily! Below is the Dashboard I created to manage and monitor the most significant items in my system. There are two half-height buttons in the middle of the page that link to two other dashboards for my use. One shows all four Iris cameras with light control buttons beside the camera views to turn on relevant lights for each camera. The other is a page showing activity and open/closed status of all door/window/motion sensors.

    Iris Cameras

    Works like a charm. I now have complete control of my four Iris cams and the ability to setup all streams on a single iPad page view with links to/from my main dashboard. Nice!
  16. Since you say your wired internet does not die I would start with the Netgear Router, I would think you modem is okay. Pick one up locally at a best buy or something and see if the problem goes away. If it does you know you got a bad router and you can see if you can get Netgear to send you a new one. Then take the other one back, this time of year they will be expecting a lot of returns anyway. Another way to go is get a cheap access point and use it's wifi and turn off the neat gear wifi and see if that holds up. You can get a TP-link access point for around $20.
  17. I don't know if this is the best place to ask this question, but it didn't seem to fit anywhere else. I am wondering what the capacity of 2.4GHz Wi-Fi is. My question comes because I have been seeing for a long time issues with Wi-Fi that I can't explain otherwise. I have a NetGear NightHawk C7800 router/modem combo and my ISP is Comcast. The modem is about a year old, I bought it new, it's not a refurb or used item. I have a hardwire camera system of which the deck is connected by ethernet to the LAN. There are no Wi-fi cameras on this system though it can support them. I just don't use any. So it puts little if any load on the LAN or Wi-Fi. Storage is internal and it records 24/7. The only time it might impact LAN performance is when I access the Camera DVR from a PC on the LAN to review some footage. I have 9 Wyze Wi-Fi cameras. I also have 4 Wi-Fi switches connected to my ST Hub. I have 6 Amazon Echo devices, they are all connected by Wi-Fi. I have one NetGear dual-band range extender. Also occasionally two smartphones, one Android and one iPhone. Three Amazon Fire tablets. One Eye-Fi SD card in my DSLR which sends copies of images to a network drive when the camera is in use. All the 4 PCs in the house are on ethernet. The SmartThings hub is connected by ethernet. The three TVs are also using ethernet for Netflix, etc. They are Wi-Fi capable but I have that turned off. A ZumSpot digital mobile radio hotspot. It uses WiFi to bridge local handheld radio RF signals to the internet. It's low impact and only active when I am using the handheld radio. The TiVo DVR uses ethernet too. On 5GHz is usually only the smartphones, but sometimes depending on where you are in the house they swap over to 2.4GHz I come up with 25 devices, of which the 9 cameras probably use the most bandwidth. But this AP is supposed to be able to handle 100 connections on each band. What happens is performance is fine then randomly WiFi will drop out. Ethernet still works fine so the ISP connection does not seem to be at fault. Nothin connected by Wi-Fi works. It can happen multiple times in one day or it might go without a problem for a week or more then BAM it's all dead until I power the unit down, physically disconnect the power and the coax from the unit, wait about a minute, then connect it all back up and reboot. After which once everything reconnects it might be good for 5 minutes, an hour, or 14 days, there's no telling as it just randomly drops out. NEtGear only gives you 90 support on these things and I didn't start having problems until about 6 months in which is when I believe Comcast pushed out a firmware update. You can't do the update or roll back to a previous firmware even though it's your own equipment. Only Comcast can install firmware updates. SO I argued with them that the problem is their doing since I have no control over the firmware and have made no changes to the hardware. Speaking of which all my network equipment is powered through APC UPSs which filter and limit voltage spikes and dips, so I don't think anything has been damaged from a surge or lightning strike. I tried turning off all the Wyze cameras but it made no difference. I've tried shutting down all the HA stuff but no change. I've looked at what channels my neighbors are using on both bands and set my access point to open channels on 2.4 and 5GHZ that are not used by anyone that can be heard at my location, didn't help. The only thing I have not tried yet is going back to my old hardware, which was a NetGear C1000 modem and a LinkSys router, separate units. The modem is DOCSIS 3.0 and I don't remember if it can be updated. To do that I would have to get Comcast to reauthorize the old modem which is not difficult but then I would have to do it again to go back to the C7800. Anyone have any ideas I might try other than what I have so far. Am I missing something else that could be the cause.

    How to write a Driver

    I have a few of the gen1 keypads sitting on a shelf hoping one day i could use them again not for their looks but they worked great until Iris went under. As far as the cameras go i gave all of mine to my parents and configured them via the http put commands for use with Blue Iris, their serving them well so far, of course they have nowhere near the quality of night resolution of my Dahua Starlights but my Dad was happy with them for free.

    How to write a Driver

    It's hard to say, that depends on skill level and potential platform limitations. In general, I've had good experience porting code form hubitat and smartthings to run on Arcus, but I haven't gone the other way. This specific driver runs on the hub and the groovy equivalent isn't fully-featured from my quick glance. If there's an existing keypad driver you may be able to use that as a starting place, but again I'm not too sure about the limitations of Hubitat

    @AndrewX192 Thanks for posting that! How difficult would it be to port this over to Hubitat?

    How to write a Driver

    The IRIS/Arcus driver can be found here: https://github.com/arcus-smart-home/arcusplatform/blob/master/agent/arcus-reflex-controller/src/main/java/com/iris/agent/reflex/drivers/AlertmeKeyPad.java Note that it's in java instead of groovy as this driver uses a "built in" (e.g. Java) defined reflex for local processing.

    How to write a Driver

    @Terk Yeah, that I think was supposed to be the plan. I'm thinking it MUST be possible though if systronics got it to work. It's very frustrating because those V1 keypads are literally gold. Very well made. Actually, they have literally got EVERYTHING to work, including all of those Iris cameras.

    How to write a Driver

    Mike, the main driver developer for Hubitat was planning to look into this about 8 months ago but I've never heard that he made any headway. He wrote drivers for most of the other v1 devices he just never got the keypad working enough to release it I think.

    How to write a Driver

    Not sure where the best place to post this is. I could really use a driver for my Iris V1 Keypad (for use on Hubitat). I don't know if anyone here has made an attempt, or who has any insight on how to start. I'm not a programmer, so I don't really know where to even start to learn how. Anyone know how I could even start on something like this?

    HubOS code released

    That's kind of what I was thinking- If someone who knew what they were doing could host it, then it would be much easier to get people on board. And I bet people would donate at that point to keep it going.

    HubOS code released

    Unfortunately Arcus is unlikely to get to a place where it's easy for someone non-technical to onboard. However, there is hope to make it fairly easy for people that already have the infrastructure available to run it. While Arcus will likely not run on any raspberry pis for the next few years, lower cost servers and even older desktops/laptops would be the way to go for smaller use-cases. Perhaps someone will step up to host it for the community - it would be easy to onboard new users in that model.

    HubOS code released

    I'd really love to ressurect my Iris v2 or V3 hubs, but this is just way too technical for me- and I suspect probably a lot of people. I wish it could be made simpler somehow, and the hardware requirement for what this is, seems insane to me. Good luck, and maybe one day...…...
