    Starting up with Hubitat

    I am using quite a bit of v1 stuff on my HE hubs. I have three HE hubs. One in my shop and one in the house that have all of my Zigbee and Zwave devices connected to them. Then I have a third hub that is connected to the other hubs and acts as a server hub. The server hub runs all rules and automatons. Since getting it set up, I don't fool with it much any more. It just works and does its thing without issue. That's how it is supposed to be. I tried Smartthings before moving to Hubitat and it seemed like all I did was try to keep things working and running, It was literally a full time job. I'm really happy on Hubitat.

    Starting up with Hubitat

    I just switched to Hubitat, I finally gave up on Systronic. I thought I had read that HE supported the V1 keypads but sadly no, everything else worked so not a deal breaker. I am not 100% sold on the V1 device support on Hubitat though. I was at first, as all my devices migrated over with not a single hiccup. About 2 weeks in though all my V1 devices stopped talking. I had to reset and re-pair almost every one of them. Then I had to go back and update all my rules. Luckily I only use the V1 devices in my shop so it's not huge deal. It may have just been a bad device that corrupted the Zigbee mesh. I am still sold on the Hubitat platform, however, as I have started migrating my ST hub over to HE. I have most of my automations in ST on webcore, and webcore runs on the HE hub. So I was able to migrate all my pistons over from ST and they run pretty as is on HE. Apparently they frown upon using webcore on the HE hub but I have seen no down side yet. I did move a good portion of my simpler automations to rule machne. RM took some getting used to. I am starting to get the hang of it now though and it's not too bad. Webcore is far superior IMO, but RM is okay. Using the Hubconnect app I can even tie in a couple of the integrations on my ST hub that HE doesn't support. Mainly my Leviosa shades and Arlo cameras. . I had hoped to use some of my spare V1 stuff to fill in some gaps, adding in some additional motion and contact sensors. Cheaper than having to buy new stuff. Until I see how the shop holds up I will keep my House hub V1 free I think.

    Wink moving to paid / subscription model

    Yea, I picked up a Wink not long after starting with Iris. I picked up the Wink 2 hub a while back on clearance at Walmart. They ended up sitting on a shelf in my shop because they have just been stagnant for so long. I ran the Wink hub alongside the Iris hub for quite a while just because of the ability to use the Lutron stuff directly with the Wink hub. I converted everything from Iris to Wink when Iris shut down, but soon switched to Smartthings and never really looked back.

    Battery Percentages Available

    The argument was that battery percentages were not that accurate. We all knew that but it would be better than a battery showing as good and the next day the device being offline with a dead battery. At least with the percentages you could gauge if you wanted to change a battery or not. It certainly would be better than their arbitrary "okay/bad meter" which was never accurate. I would routinely look at all of my device battery percentages and change low ones before leaving on a trip or going out of town. Couldn't do that when they took percentages away, They didn't get it. We did have thegillions portal though. He gave us percentages.

    Wink moving to paid / subscription model

    Yeah, the Wink users are flooding into the Hubitat forum now. I think that the 5 bucks a month that they want to charge is not unreasonable but no one has any faith that this will keep them alive or bring new features and fixes. I read that Wink employees are not being paid. Seems to me that if this was the model that you were going to move to, it probably should have been done long before now. This from the Wink blog seems a bit harsh: Should you choose not to sign up for a subscription you will no longer be able to access your Wink devices from the app, with voice control or through the API, and your automations will be disabled on May 13. Your device connections, settings and automations can be reactivated if you decide to subscribe at a later date.

    Wink announced today that they're moving to paid model effective next week... https://blog.wink.com/wink-blog/2020/5/6/introducing-wink-subscription

    Battery Percentages Available

    It was a extremely easy add. I made it configurable in the event that some provider of Arcus doesn't want to offer it, but agree that it seems like an odd thing to hide. There's a handful of things like this that are artificially limited and easy to provide in Arcus.

    Battery Percentages Available

    That is something that we argued for constantly with the original Iris team. It pisses me off to this day that they would not enable this for us. Good to see.
  11. Arcus now supports the Aeotec MultiSensor 6, bringing a few new features to the platform: UV Index Illuminance (in lumens) This is available to view in the web app today. Going forward, new rules will become available to make use of this information.

    Battery Percentages Available

    Battery percentages can now easily be enabled by an Arcus operator through a configuration option. When enabled it will show exactly as expected:

    Device tamper information available

    The IRIS v1 Motion Sensor now supports tamper reporting as well.

    Device tamper information available

    Device tamper information is coming to Arcus. For now only the IRIS v1 Contact Sensor reports tamper status, but other devices will gain support soon as well. You can see the last time a device was tampered with in the device details pane: Or see a history of device tamper events in the device/place history:

    Ecolink Firefighter compatible?

    Old thread, but these are supported in Arcus Platform now. I've only tested the Smoke alarm portion, but following the spec it should support CO alarms as well. I'm using one to bring my hardwired interconnected Smoke Alarm into Arcus and it trips the Arcus safety alarm during a smoke alarm self-test.

    Ring Device Support

    Arcus now has support for the Ring Range extender and Ring Contact Sensor. Both of these devices are currently "uncertified" and will not show up in the pairing menu. To pair, just put the device in pairing mode while in the "Advanced Pairing" mode. Some details below: Ring Range Extender: * Supports basic range extender functionality * Supports battery state reporting, and power failure / restoration. Ring Contact Sensor: * Supports basic contact functionality, and can participate in an alarm. * Supported via reflexes and can work when Arcus Platform is offline.

    Bringing back IRIS by Lowe's

    I would like to be able to put my four V1 keypads to use.

    Iris GL08_2 Wi-Fi Smart Outdoor Plugs

    In theory if these smart plugs allowed the platform URL to be changed, they would work with Arcus Platform. The problem is that the URL appears to be hard coded with no way to change.

    Bringing back IRIS by Lowe's

    Folks in the Hubitat community have been asking for it. Particularly the v2 keypad and smart plug firmware.

    Iris v1 keypads

    Yes, they do. They've unlocked some capabilities that weren't available in Iris.

    I do not, but I can probably get it if it’s important

    Bringing back IRIS by Lowe's

    I was referring to the firmware updates for the individual devices. Keypads, motions, contacts etc.
  23. AndrewX192

    Bringing back IRIS by Lowe's

    The actual firmware file isn’t up on the main github but I have a copy available if you need. That is in the arcustools repo: https://github.com/wl-net/arcustools/tree/master/hub/v2/firmware (change url if you need v3). the Arcus hubOS repo has all you need to build the firmware yourself

    Andrew, before I move to the blog post, did Lowes release the device firmware with the code dump?

    Bringing back IRIS by Lowe's

    If you've been following this forum, you know I've been working on bringing Arcus to life. While things have gotten pretty quiet on the forums, work hasn't stopped. Here's a blog post I put together detailing the Arcus Platform and my path to getting it up and running over the last year: https://www.wl-net.net/blog/post/bringing-back-iris-lowes-arcus

    Iris v1 keypads

    I already have a dozen of these for Arcus testing & validation, but if you plan to toss em I'll take em. I've been sending out stuff to other folks that are using Arcus.
  27. I'd been holding onto the Iris v1 keypads in the hope that Hubitat would eventually support them however I have purchased a few more v2 pads to replace them, I have two of the v1 pads if anyone is interested. I think I read Systronics RF supports them? I'll probably throw them out in a week if no one is interested. Thanks.
