    What will work?

    I believe one of the developers answered that over on their community forum. Go do a search over there, I don't visit there anymore but I believe he said a few local processes may may still work. I can't remember why now but it seemed for some reason he said not to depend on it.

    Don't throw away your V1 devices just yet!

    1 V1 contact and 3 V1 motions paired, working flawlessly. Tomorrow gonna pair the remaining 16 contacts.

    Yeah buddy, I'm pairing a few iris sensors, v1 motion paired now doing some v1 contacts.

    What will work?

    Everything runs through the cloud, come April 1, Iris shouldn't be operational. I went to Hubitat, where things run locally.

    I have a ST v3 hub in the laundry room that is unopened. I'm starting to look at Hubitat instead. I'm also trying to get them on a podcast with me as a possible co-host.

    Okay this is new to me. If someone has a Mac it seems like thats what this code was for. https://github.com/arcus-smart-home/arcusplatform/blob/master/platform/run.sh Shows thats its for a mac and I ask a dev and yes it is for mac.

    The beta was released aboout an hour ago. I was able to successfully pair a V1 contact sensor and have it read temperature, contact, and battery status. Seems weird to be handling these devices after being away for 3 years. I've been traveling all day so I'm not really going to do much more testing tonight.

    I've seen a few Iris bundles on E-bay that might be a deal if you can use them with this code.

    I have dozens of V1 sensors / switches, and will love to be able to reuse it. Dig through the git sources, and get familiar with it. I will be happy to help in anyway.

    What will work?

    I have searched but can't find the answer anywhere. What, if anything, in the IRIS system will continue to work on April 1st? Does anything run locally on the hub or does everything go through the cloud.? I'm pretty sure security won't work. But what about sensors that detect motion and turn lights on and off based on rules? Do they need the internet or do they run locally?

  15. Nice...completely agree about your comments on how Lowe's handled this.
  16. I hate that I was recovering from a flu-like illness, but I wasn't going to give up on an opportunity to guest host on my favorite Home Automation podcast. Haven't listened to the final cut, no one likes to hear their own voice, but did give a lot of props to this forum and it's members. Thanks for all of your help. https://www.thedigitalmediazone.com/2019/03/22/home-on-117/

    What Platform Should I Migrate To

    You can do this natively within SmartThings. If you go into the Smart Lighting SmartApp, you will see turn off, then you can set a time delay for it to turn back off.

    Hubitat users certainly are proponents of the hub and this is straight from Hubitat.

    Setup an OpenVPN app connection to your router for a secure connection, that way you can leave the ips as internal only and don't need to open any ports on the router. That is if your router can host an open VPN server (Asus makes it pretty easy)

    What Platform Should I Migrate To

    Brave New (SmartThings) World: "The Final Countdown" Well, I've pretty much moved everything over to ST with a few exceptions (which I'll cover in a sec). For the most part, I found the installation of new native ST devices and the migration of my existing compatible devices pretty painless. I did experience some mild frustration with a few of the multipurpose sensors not being detected after scanning the QR code, but I eventually got them paired. Almost all of my legacy devices (sirens, smoke/CO2 detectors, Osram LIGHTIFY lights, GE In-Wall and plug-in dimmers) came over flawlessly. I had a problem paring my GE outdoor smart plug, though. I suspect it may be because it had been disconnected from Iris and I chose to force delete it - therefore requiring a device reset before pairing it to ST. Instructions on resetting it was scarce and what I did find didn't seem to work, so I put it aside and moved on. I also still need to migrate my Utilitech Glass Break Sensor. It, too, is disconnected from Iris (for some reason) - but I'll make sure I re-pair it to Iris then delete it clean before migrating it over to ST. Other than those few items, things have gone rather smoothly. As for rules and scenes, they are a work in progress. I did run up against a limitation on the ST side that I didn't have with Iris. In Iris, I had rules that turned on lights when motion was detected on sensors in my kitchen, stairway, and driveway. The lights would turn on for a set amount of time, then turn off when motion was no longer detected. In the native ST automation, there was no parameter to turn the lights back off after a certain amount of time. Luckily, there was a ST-supported SmartApp that provided this parameter and now my lights perform accordingly. I find the addition of a robust developer community in ST a definite advantage over the traditionally closed Iris platform. There's another factor of the ST migration that I need to resolve, though. That is mirroring the audible warning I used to get from my Gen 1 Iris keypad (that I, of course, can no longer use on ST). I discovered that via 3rd-party applets that my Sonos speakers can be used to broadcast text-to-speech notifications of sensor triggers - but I cannot get the ST hub to detect the Sonos speakers. According to blog posts and ST's own site, I should be able to just add the Sonos speakers like I would any other device, but they refuse to be detected. I've opened a ticket with ST on this. In the meantime, I learned that I can create similar announcements using the routines engine for Alexa. And while the routines engine only allows you to hear the announcements on one Alexa device, you can send these announcements to the Alexa App on your mobile phone (a better option when you're away from home anyway). Unfortunately, after the first initial tests, I haven't received any announcements on my mobile phone since. So I'll look into this this weekend. Overall, so far so good.

    Iris CAMs working on ST

    Thank you.. btw, I put the TinyCam app on my Android phone tonight.. it's (currently) the free version till I see how it works out.. after the shutdown.. but it's a cool little app.. I'm not quite sure yet how to make it work with a secure connection.. (if at all) but it seems to handle all my Cam's pretty well.. (still just WiFi for now) I'll have to review the post to see if anyone has posted settings that work best w/these cams.. that being the tiny cam setting options

    I guess it's good we got paid out before other systems got v1 devices supported.

    HubConnect 1.0 is Released!

    Hi all, For those who own Hubitat, or who may be contemplating Hubitat, I have released HubConnect which is an app that links multiple hubs together and virtualizes remote devices on a single, master hub. HubConnect can even link devices on SmartThings to Hubitat making them available for local automations, dashboard access, etc. HubConnect replaces the native HubLink/Link to Hub apps and includes the following enhancements: Support for multiple device attributes (i.e switch, power, voltage for a Zigbee Plug). Battery status is available for any device that supports it. Switches, Dimmers, RGB Bulbs, and Buttons are 2-way devices which can be controlled from the coordinator hub as well as the remote hub in which they are connected to. Fully bi-directional. Connect physical devices from remote hubs to the coordinator AND devices on the coordinator to remote hubs! When a remote device is controlled from master, status updates (i.e. switch) are instantly sent by the remote device to ensure the device actually responded to the command. Full bi-directional SmartThings support including 2-way devices. Hub Health ensures each remote hub checks in with the coordinator every minute. If a hub fails to respond for 5 minutes it is declared offline. A virtual "hub presence" device is created for every linked remote hub. If the remote hub is responding, the status is "present", if it's offline the status is "not present". This uses the "HubConnect Remote Hub" driver and is done so rules can be created to notify when a hub is not responding. The virtual Remote Hub device also acts as a switch; when on the remote hub sends device events to the server, when off, communication is stopped. This is useful when installing hub updates to avoid errors being written to the hubs logs. Flexible oAuth endpoints; Hubs do not need to be on the same LAN or even same location. Remote hubs can be located anywhere with an internet connection. Communications between the master and remote hubs can be suspended for maintenance. (i.e. rebooting the master hub as it prevents the remotes from logging http errors) Publish user-defined device drivers without modifying HubConnect source code. Mode changes can be pushed from the Server to Remote hubs, including SmartThings. Remote hub "Reboot-Recovery" checks-in with the Server hub to set the current system mode anytime a remote hub is rebooted. More information on HubConnect is available on the Hubitat Community Forum.

    Leave them paired and turn off the hub.

    I am going to start trying to build and load this to my raspberry pi 3b+ this evening. I will be happy to join a joint effort. Eddie

    I’m surirpised they didn’t publish build requirements. Im going to be curious to see if the hubs can be repurposed although not sure what value that would be. A stand alone java runtime with external radios would be ideal and a rpi is far more powerful I do know that at one point the devs actually created a hub runtime completenwith Windows batch file to run it. I saw those on their repo. Would love to see this working, just to demonstrate that it can be done.

    Ah, so best just to leave them all connected till the night before Iris Shuts down... and then turn off the hub.. or leave them paired up.. just power the cams down maybe egh?? That way they will retain the information they were last configured with.. which I have well documented already.. Thanks for the tips on it..
