    Alexa for SystronicsRF

    Could you guys do something like webcore has and allow URL links to start actions. I setup shortcuts in Siri that when called pass links to chrome on my phone which in turn fires a webcore piston. Works pretty well. Since most everything is web based anyway it would seem a fairly straight forward approach.

    My Apps

    There are 7 new Apps available. Please click “Update Templates” when you go to your “Settings->My Apps-> Add an App”. 2 existing apps have been updated too. There are now 35 App templates available. The new Apps are as follows: - Medicine Reminder Set up a reminder so that if you forget to take your medicine (determined by whether a cabinet or drawer has been opened) by a specified time you get a notification. Already Had Your Medicine Prompt someone that they may have already had their medicine. Turn It Off At Sunrise Turn something off at sunrise. Smart Nightlight Turns on lights when after sunset and motion is detected. Turn lights off at sunrise or sometime after motion ceases. Light Up The Night Turn your lights on at sunset and turn them off at sunrise. Brighten My Path Turn your lights on when motion is detected between sunrise and sunset. Darken Behind Me Turn your lights off after a period of no motion being observed. Scheduled to start at sunset and stop at sunrise.

    Alexa for SystronicsRF

    Based on the device information that was kindly provided by many Iris users at the beginning of this year, Amazon Alexa is in most demand, with Google Assistant in second place. This also reflects their wider dominance of the Home Automation market. For this reason, our top priority is Amazon Alexa, which will be followed by Google Assistant. Once these are in place, we will certainly be reviewing the use of other voice assistants, and the demand for them, including Siri for Apple users.

    Is there any chance the Control System will ever be able to do this? I have found that Siri is more convenient for voice controlling my home automation.

    Alexa for SystronicsRF

    @smittysmit Please see our more detailed response on the SystronicsRF Forum. In general, the Alexa integration was well advanced back in June, but other activities have since taken priority. A new version of the Control System with the Iris cameras fully integrated will be released by the end of this month. The completion of the Alexa integration will then definitely be our top priority.

    Any clue when Alexa will be active? It's a major factor in my house.

    My Apps

    My Apps has been extended to include a Novice Editing Mode option. The Apps were introduced initially by Beta Testers defining a collection of Advanced Activators, which provide the user interface, and Advanced Actions, which control the operation of the Control System. To date, users, and especially those with more challenging requirements, and larger systems, have been able to meet all of their requirements in this way, from controlling lighting, to HVAC, and security. My Apps was introduced in June to enable these Advanced Activators and Advanced Actions to be encapsulated, so as to provide a separate, self-contained App for each requirement. The Novice Editing Mode, which has now been added, provides a much simplified version of the existing, full-capability, App Designer. It is intended primarily for new users, but can also be used to create Apps that will meet many users’ simpler requirements. In the Novice Mode, the each App has a predefined function, so the user has only to select their devices. The user is guided through the selection of the individual devices, and the setting up of the App, with additional instructions at each stage of the process. It is anticipated that the full capability designer, which is now referred to as the Advanced Editing Mode, will be used primarily to meet the more sophisticated requirements. All of the Apps use the same regular Advanced Actions and Advanced Activators underneath, whether they are designed via the Novice Mode or the Advanced Mode. The only difference is that the Novice Mode provides a simplified designer. Users can switch between these two App designer modes. If the user creates an App using the Novice Mode, then they can easily switch to the Advanced Mode, which then enables them to take full advantage of the entire underlying capability of the Control System. A set of Template Apps are provided, any of which can be selected as the basis for an App in either the Novice Mode or the Advanced Mode. There are currently 25 templates, covering lighting, HVAC, safety & security, energy control, wellbeing, convenience, and green living. New templates are being added on a daily basis. Having selected a template, the user has only to select the devices that they intend to use with the App, which then makes it available for immediate use. If the user chooses to edit the template derived App in the Advanced Mode, then they can adapt it, and extend it, to whatever extent they need to meet their specific requirement.

    CR123A Batteries

    Thanks, looks good. I couldn't use 50 of those batteries before they went bad though. I'll have to combine with other battery needs to make the $50 minimum for free shipping. I need 36 AAs for window candles at Christmas time and now is a good time to get them. We usually buy AAA, AA, etc. in bulk from Costco is packs of 40.

    CR123A Batteries

    I second this suggestion. Stock up on all the batteries you will need for a while, all will be priced about as cheap as anywhere online, and when your order hits $50 you will get free shipping too.

    CR123A Batteries

    Anyone have a good source for CR123A batteries. I have looked on Amazon and even ordered some recently but what I received were knockoffs not Duracell. They were made to look like Duracells but when you look close no manufacturer information, no disposal information, and other telltale signs. Got my money back from Amazon (seller didn't offer returns, I wonder why) but now looking for a reliable place to buy. Locally they are expensive, even at Walmart it's two batteries for $7. I have a few Aerotec multi-sensors and they take CR123A batteries. They can run on one or two or on AC from a wall wort but in a couple locations I don't have power nearby so need batteries. One battery usually lasts over 18 months. TIA.

    Prepaid Visa Card

    I never received a prepaid card for a manual redemption I submitted. I followed up on this a few weeks after the process had been closed and they told me they couldn't find any record of my submission and there wasn't anything they could do about it. If you did not receive an email conformation then I'm pretty sure it is too late to do anything now.

    Prepaid Visa Card

    Unfortunately, I doubt there is anyone still employed to help you with that.

    Prepaid Visa Card

    Although the redemption process for my “place(s)” was completed on 31 March 2019, I have not yet received my Visa prepaid card. It has been seven months. Further, to the best of my knowledge, I never received an email with the tracking information for the mailing of the aforementioned card. Has anyone else had this problem? If, so what did you to correct it? Any suggestions?
  27. Did you still need help with this? Like you, I reviewed their examples, and while the logic made sense to me, I couldn't for the life of me find out how to actually get to the end result because I didn't know what to click on or how the rule machine creation interface actually flowed. I only have about 20 rules created as of now - yes, some of us are very busy and don't have time with work to spend a lot of time reading the manuals. So I would create 1-2 rules every month or so and my rules are in v1, 2, 3, and now v4 of RM. It seemed like once I got an understanding of what to click on in a particular version, they upgraded RM. It's nice to keep it updated but for those of us who don't create that many rules, it can be frustrating to have to spend hours trying to find how to actually create the rules when it changes. And when you ask a question on the forums, it is a crap shoot on whether you will actually get help or if they will just refer you to a post that has 1100+ responses and say "look at the examples". So, after getting that exact response from someone on a forum, I had to sit down and try to figure out the flow of the creation myself. If you still would like to see how this is done in RM4, I can give you some examples and how to get to the end result. Bear in mind, I only have 4 rules, so my examples won't be as extensive as on the forums but if what you are looking for is what to click on within RM, I think even just one may help you wrap your head around it.

    Iris Instructional Videos Gone

    Systronics has posted them all on their YouTube channel: "As the Iris videos for pairing and factory resetting devices have been removed, we have included them in our YouTube channel. We have uploaded about 90 videos. The playlists are organized by manufacturer, to reduce the number of thumbnails that are displayed:" https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkuwjOnhv5RMr4UwvBs-9jA/playlists

    SystronicsRF vs Hubitat

    they fold you still have a working ecosystem. Granted it might not grow and if a part fails you could be SOL, it won't be like Iris where the hub becomes a paper weight.
