    Video Storage showing 0%

    My back porch camera and living room camera only record a handfull of clips each day. (Back porch is on motion... Livingroom only records for a few minutes each time the door is opened). 3GB would give me well over 3 months of clips. However, when I recently re positioned my front porch camera it now records a lot more because cars that pass by trigger it. I like being able to see my mailbox though.

    Here we go with bugs again

    So far since this weekend, I have had a contact (V2) go in the weeds that had to be readded, and now sunset is running at 10:30am EST πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Update: another contact sensor dropped out. When pulling the battery the light starts flashing blue on the contact sensor. If you put the hub in pairing, it will reconnect but not know if it’s opened or closed. You have to fully remove it and re-pair it. Who knows..πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

    Energysmart water heater controls

    I saw the same thing at my local store along with Gen 2 smart plugs for $9.95 and key fobs for $4.75. I really didn't want another key fob, but for that price I couldn't pass it up. At the register it rang up for $2.37, which is about what it's worth.

    Anyone need these? They are clearance at my local store.

    The amount of storage will vary based on the camera's resolution and FPS, but I doubt Iris can store several months worth of videos on just 3GB. I'm not using Iris for video recording so I don't know how exactly how much storage is required, but I can tell you that my Iris cameras, set to record on motion only, are averaging almost a gig a day on Blue Iris. This is with the cameras set to record on motion only. My non-Iris cameras that are set to record 24/7 are using 1.84GB an hour. With 7.5TB of local storage I can save video clips for about 6 weeks. With 15 cameras, six weeks worth of video storage equates to just under 11,000 video clips.

    I noticed something on the web dashboard recently that stated premium service now gives you unlimited storage for the last 30 days worth of clips, and up to 150 pinned videos. So it seems there is no longer a 3GB limit. Depending on how many cameras you record from and how many clips are recorded in a 30 day period, it could be that this provides you either MORE, or LESS storage than before. My guess is that they found that 3GB was enough to store several months worth of videos for most users, and decided to change the scheme to lower the overall amount of storage we are consuming. On a side note, it seems that there isn't much of a down side to upping the FPS and resolution of the video now, as larger videos will not likely impact how much you can store.

    For the last week or so, my Video Storage, which used to show the percentage of 3 GB that was taken up, has been showing 0%. From the number of video clips that I have, it should be showing close to 50% usage. Anyone else's video storage status showing the same?

    Cameras discontinued? Whats going on with iris?

    I've found weird deals on the Iris cameras. I picked up an Outdoor cam about a 2 months ago for $40--it had been opened, but was still in plastic. Then, about a 2 weeks ago, I was screwing around on lowes.com and found one Indoor cam for $22 at a store in the next town over. I figured it would be open box, and when I got to the store there was a crappy worn empty box on the display as a placeholder. I took it and checked out and they brought out a pristine camera still shrink wrapped. Both work great. But my old one (Indoor, was an open box too--I go for cheap) gets hot sometimes and went out a few days ago. It's back online now. Overall, I have 3 cameras for about the price of one (if the old one keeps working). For what it's worth, I've also caught deals on other devices. The older Z-Wave devices--the GE/Jasco switches have gone down to around $20 and I picked up several, as well as one older fan switch. I also found a gen 2 smart button for $5, a gen 2 door sensor for $5, a water leak detector (Ultitech I believe? I'm at work) for $9. I'm always looking for deals, ha. And I try to get the ones that would work with other systems, just in case. I hope this isn't a sign about a looming announcement and sunset. J.

    Multiple False Alarm Triggers

    I know this topic is about a week old but this happened to me yesterday. Two camera motion sensors in different parts of the house tripped for no apparent reason and set off the alarm while I was at work. Since that incident, all looks well...

    ZIgbee/OSRAM drop out?

    It turns out it was not a Osram or Iris problem. Apparently the last realtor that left the house was very conscientious about turning out all the lights which included all the lamps I had set up on smartplugs and bulbs. So it was just the notifications that came at 2:00 in the morning, not the devices going offline. I get having a delay for a notification but I would think an hour might be a good limit. The last realtor left around 2 or 3 so I guess it must wait 12 or so hours.

    ZIgbee/OSRAM drop out?

    Two of my 8 Osram bulbs went offline last week as well. Usually a power cycle will kick-start them, but didn't work this time. I had to force remove and then re-pair them. Once that was done, they've behaved.

    ZIgbee/OSRAM drop out?

    I feel your pain just having sold a home also. I would give support a call. We did recently have a platform update on the 12th which may be the culprit.

    ZIgbee/OSRAM drop out?

    This morning at 2:56 AM all four Zigbee OSRAM bulbs I have dropped off line. Anyone else have any issues? We are in the process of selling our home. I have already bought another place and I have the old house staged and I have the Iris hub at the house to turn on lamps when someone comes in to see the house, I also have it controlling the thermostat so I can cool it down when some one is scheduled to see it. I only have 12 devices attached, 6 V1 smart plugs, 1 V2 smrtplug, 4 OSRAM bulbs and my CT101 thermostat. All the other devices are zigbee except for the thermostat and everything else is fine. I have been using the OSRAM bulbs for the last couple of years with no issues. I thought it weird that they all dropped off at exactly the same time. Probably just have to power cycle them, I tried a Hub reboot and that was a No Go.

    Utilitech GBS worth it?

    Had mine for years and haven't had a single issue with it. We have a large lab and every once in a while if he barks a certain pitch it will set it off, but not that often. I have it above the back door that the upper 1/2 of the door is glass.

    Utilitech GBS worth it?

    Was at my local Lowe's and saw 2 GBS for 10 bucks. I figured they might be a good addition but many of the reviews I read were not that great. Since most robberies in the area don't involve breaking windows (usually just kick door in) I am wondering if these are worth the hassle. Or are many of the bad reviews due to gen 2 growing pains and ST,wink etc integration? What are your experiences?

    Anyone having zigbee issues?

    So everything dried out and I added an extra housing. Then I tested the valve body to make sure it wasn't leaking and it was fine. So most likely this failure was due to the heavy rains we got this year. Probably not enough time between storms to dry out. Anyway after getting it together and seeing the antenna icon light up to pair I figured I was good. But no matter what I did it would never reconnect. Well I finally had more time to play with it and found all I needed to do was force remove the Orbit then repair. Now all seems as it should. Not sure where the original pairing went wrong but I assume it was something like a reset on the Orbit. So all is good now. If you run into this look to add another drain and let the unit air out for a few days...you might get lucky.

    Use Tilt Sensor to trigger alarm

    Thats it! I did the same thing, but screwed the hinge to the door.

    Multiple False Alarm Triggers

    I haven't been experiencing false alarms, but I have noticed that I a few of my motion sensors seem to be a lot more sensitive to detecting motion than they used to be. Also, I haven't experienced any issues with the web UI.

    Use Tilt Sensor to trigger alarm

    I have this on 3 garage doors. I can't remember who came up with it either, but I saw it on here also. I can take a picture tonight when I get home if there is any interest.

    Multiple False Alarm Triggers

    Has anyone else been experiencing false alarms with their Iris sytems? For the past 3 weeks or so, my alarm has been falslely triggered at various times day and night by a motion sensor and now an Iris indoor camera. Also, I'm trying to go to the Alarms page on the portal to remove the camera from the active alarm device list and the page won't render content (only menu banner). Is something going on with Iris???
  26. Get the Sense energy monitor. You can have it send you a notification or email when anything turns on or off, or has been running for x number of minutes. Sense is totally separate from Iris, they do not interconnect.
