    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    Glad to hear you are not only still working on this but close to releasing something. The new CEO at Lowe's has me nervous with how he is really shaking things up and clearing house.
  4. Are these still available?

    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    We’ve been a bit quiet for a while – getting on with the development. I also managed to lose my password, so I've had to use a slightly different user name. We can’t give a date for the availability of the software just yet. Most of the development work is done, and we are into final integration and testing. As I probably mentioned before, the software has been tested with more than 50 devices from over 30 manufacturers. These include both AlertMe and 1st Generation Iris by Lowe’s devices. We have started to produce some videos in the run-up to releasing the software, the first group of which you can view at the following URL: http://app4orce.uk/home-automation.html These five videos give an initial overview of our approach. We will be adding more videos over the new few days and weeks. These will be on separate pages within the same domain. If you have any feedback, or comments, then please use this forum. There is also an enquiry form on the video page for anyone interested in using the software, and helping with the Beta testing. The software will be supplied on a micro SD card for use with a Raspberry Pi 3B.

    Marvin Ellison

    If he was to do a walk-through in Lowes stores in this area and see the Iris displays, he'd probably definitely put Iris on the chopping block as the displays are pathetic. The Iris displays need to be put out of their misery before rigor mortis sets in on them. I don't understand why Lowes has let Iris go down like it has in this area yet the Nest, Google, etc displays are well stocked and clean. Lowes is behind in sales trailing Home Depot. Retail articles I've read lately point out that Lowe's venture in tech "store in a store" and robots hasn't helped sales...while HD focused on training their employees to be more knowledgeable about its products...this is something Lowes needs to do as well...most Lowes employees are ignorant when it comes to Iris. Time will tell about Ellison and the future of Iris...he seems to be quick on the draw though...he definitely came in with both guns loaded with hair pin triggers. Once 4th quarter 2018 holiday sales figures come out in early 2019, that could be a deciding factor. Even though Lowes is really a home improvement store, Christmas sales will make or break a store....especially in consumer tech products mojo2600.

    The GE Link bulbs still don't work with Iris. ☹️

    Marvin Ellison

    So Marvin Ellison started a little over a week ago and I have been seeing lots of stories about his restructuring of Lowes. A bunch of people are already out or know they are out in a few months. I really hope he invests in the Iris platform and doesn't kill this off too. Has anyone seen any stories mentioning his plans for Iris or even what his thoughts are around other Lowes brands? Anyone have any thoughts?

    Well that didn't last long. This is the one that was furthest away from the hub. I'll move it closer to the hub and give it one more shot.

    So I added a few GE Link bulbs back into system to see if they will work with these new updates. The first thing I noticed is the new pairing process is definitely more polished. The first bulb was within 10' of the hub and paired with no problems. The second bulb is in another room and about 30' away from the hub. It took 3 tries to get this bulb to pair, but it finally worked and it seem to be functioning properly. The new pairing process now identifies improperly paired devices and walks you through the process to remove and re-pair the device. The first three screenshots below show the new process with the last one indicating the new device was paired as an uncertified device. Please note that the bulb was factory reset between each improper pairing process. I guess only time will tell if these bulbs will work or not.

    I’m curious about the smart+ bulbs As discussed in the other thread about bulbs, I don’t think the smart + ones were previously supported. It was a shame as the lightify ones worked great. I’d like to hear if anyone gets one to work. The pairing screen definitely looks fancier too.

    Thanks very much. That certainly explains the delay. At least I know there is nothing wrong.

    Security Key Pad - Current Firmware Version

    I'm guessing the one using 11005310 is only capable of running that firmware version. Thanks Guys.

    Problem with forum

    Thanks Otto Mation, but there are no notifications showing for me in my profile and the bug keeps appearing. Don't know why it just started doing this as the IDM proggie has not been updated or changed since I installed it. The only way I see to stop this is totally disable IDM from running in the background. ..guess I'll just have to live with it. Thanks again.

    Security Key Pad - Current Firmware Version

    @Wlepse I saw this post too, just wasn't sure what the current status was. I will look the MFG date to understand what I have. The one is clearly older since I bought it 9 months ago, and the second key pad two weeks ago. It looks like they are running on different FW versions. @Vettester Thanks, but I'm curious, is that because you know the version numbers or just because they haven't changed after being plugged in for so long? Thanks Again, Guys!

    Security Key Pad - Current Firmware Version

    Welcome to the forum. Your hub and key pads have the most current version of firmware. The only way to force a firmware change is to call support and ask them to do it for you.

    Security Key Pad - Current Firmware Version

    I am not sure what they should be but I do remember seeing a thread here about batteries being depleted way too fast. It turned out some keypads had to be reverted back to an old firmware to keep this from happening. I think it was based on build date, so maybe they can see that from their end and won't push the newest to one unit just because it will cause other issues. Just a thought.
  23. I'm new to the Iris Hub and UI. I've bought a series of Iris items because they go on sale regularly at Lowe's over that past few years. I use them normally in my ST system. It's hit critical mass, now that I have integrated the Key Pads. There was an opened-item V2 Hub on sale, so I bought it to be able to push the OTA firmware updates to my devices. They've been attached for two days now, and I haven't seen any updates to the hub or Key Pads. How long does this normally take and is there a way to force it? From what I can see, it just happens and you see it on the App. What is the current Hub Firmware Version? Mine is listed as 2.1.0.061. What is the current Ver 2 (Gen 2?) Key Pad Firmware Version? Below is what I'm seeing: Any advice or suggestions or posts to point me to? Thanks, Jacob

    Arm Away

    The hub communicates with the fob every 2 minutes. The hub has to see 5 "pings" with no response before it determines that the fob is away. This would account for 10 minutes...

    Arm Away

    I Created a Scene “Away” Sets the security Alarm (alarm partial) Then I created a rule to run the Scene when the last person leaves. When the Smart Fob is away from the hub the rule and scene runs. Everything works EXCEPT it takes 15 to 20 minutes for the scene actually run. Not sure why it takes so long for the alarm to arm. Any ideas?

    Garage Door Gone From Doors and Locks

    Yeah my friends is there also, not sure why mine is that way.

    Garage Door Gone From Doors and Locks

    Nope, my garage doors are still showing up under doors and locks on all my devices (Android, iOS and the web app).

    1st Gen Motion Sensor

    It was not in the device list anymore. Almost as if the new one took the identity of the installed one. I ended up taking the one that disappeared and reset it and it paired successfully and both are showing now. Weird.

    Sump Pump Alarm

    Took it also, curious, sounds interesting. Oops just saw it was three years old, oh well missed it I guess.
