    Iris, tell me when my washing machine stops please.

    Only problem I found with that was, the washer pauses between cycles dropping the power. I used SmartThing with one plug only for this reason. Our laundry room was outside at our old house and the wife wanted to know when it was done. I was able to tell it to wait before sending when the power stayed below for 5 seconds or something. Every washer is different, it might work for yours though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Iris, tell me when my washing machine stops please.

    Not sure how to help you on the dryer but you could put a smart plug on the washer and have it send you a push notification when the electricity draw drops below a certain amount.
  7. I imagine new home appliances (washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc) are now getting smarter and are communicating with the IoT. Meanwhile, my older washer and dryer do not. Anyone come up with an after-market DIY method of alerting Iris when the washing machine or clothes dryer complete their work? Complicating this I think is that my washing machine (as most are) is powered by 110V, but my electric dryer is 220V. (I use a smart switch to remotely control a window AC in my basement, but that would never do for the clothes dryer.) My apologies if this has already been asked. thanks in advance for any shared wisdom.

    Anyone having zigbee issues?

    Well it turns out I was wrong in my previous post; the battery tray seals to the PCB cover. So the only pathway for water to get through are the screw holes. But something doesn't add up for me, typically a screw into plastic seals pretty well since a tightened screw tends to stretch the plastic creating a better seal. Either way, if this dries up and the connection can be re-established I will pot those screws to make sure nothing gets through. As you can see in the pics below, the light gray PCB cover is potted to the housing using a dark gray potting material which is also used for the solenoid wire pass thru. I will also likely add some PTFE based seal conditioner to the battery tray to make sure it is sealing properly. As you can see in that pic there is a small amount of debris inside which must have come through the hose end connections. That just has an overlap to try to keep material out. It looks like it should be good for debris but not water. This is further complicated by my installation. Normally your spigot points straight down, so the included weep holes should drain anything that leaks in from the top. In my case the Orbit is connected to a Y which means it is canted and those weep holes end up not being the low side. So I will likely drill a small hole in the bottom corner to make sure there is a good drain. I think it will also be prudent to test the hose connection tube since the solenoid valve has a seal that could leak.

    Anyone having zigbee issues?

    Thanks for confirming. Because of that I went back out to take a closer look. While it was keeping time, opening manually etc i noticed something funny on the display. There appeared to be a line. So i removed it and took it inside and realized it was full of water. It is actually a pretty bad design. There are no seals for the hose end connections so any rain sitting on top will make its way in. Also if you hose end connection is leaking you will dump all of that inside. While they sealed the pcb board cover edges the screw holes are not sealed nor is the opening for the battery. Since the battery cover seals to the outside cover and not this pcb cover there is nothing to stop water from migrating. Surprisingly I also found some larger debris inside so the leak points must be bigger than they look. If this dries out and reconnects I am going to seal those screw holes in the pcb cover, seal the pcb cover to the outer cover and add another weep hole. My unit is mounted on a splitter, so the low spot is where the hose comes out, but the weep holes are on the other side. If I get it working I will post up some pictures.

    The only issues I've seen are with the GE link bulbs, but they are not supported and haven't been stable since V1.
  11. For the last week or so I keep getting alerts that some devices were dropping off the network, then a couple hours later they'd be back. With one exception, one door sensor needed replacement. Then yesterday my orbit hose end dropped off and I can't get it back on. I tried pulling the batteries, replacing them and adding a repeater in between. No luck. But I did see one time the unit appeared to connect since the signal indicator lit up and the time changed...but nothing shows in hub history. Anyone else experiencing weird stability issues lately?

    Yes sir. They are connected to the same terminals. My model is 8365. Maybe I need to find that hack and try it anyway?

    Looks like last night's hub update killed the portal again.

    Do they still have them? I have a friend that had a new one go bad and he is stuck because the stores around here don’t have it that I have seen.

    Have you got the GDO connected to the same terminals as your push button? https://dtv98j71ej9a1.cloudfront.net/Sites/Iris/Documents/Garage+Door+Controller+Installation+Manual+(1).pdf If you have a one of the following LiftMaster MyQ Models you'll have to apply the hack @dusterp posted. 8355, 8360, 8500, 8550, 8557, 8587 & 8165

    Can the gdc be plugged into the overhead unit where the wired button goes?

    That's too bad. If they will still function under the IRIS platform, I wonder if any will be available on clearance or if that would be a bad idea.
