    Do You Miss Iris? and General BS Thread

    I did see entries change, but not their routing. Basically as other devices checked in the list would change but I didn't see a routing change.

    Distance isn't always the deciding factor in a mesh network and since it is constantly trying to self heal, the routing table is just a snapshot of the active child connections when you run the getChildAndRouteInfo command. If you refresh the browser window you'll see that some of your route table entries change.

    Interesting...wonder why Hubitat tech support never suggested this when I had issues. Also question the details shown, for instance two windows next to each other hope through two different outlets. This is even stranger since one is hopping through an outlet that is about as far away as one could be. In fact it is bypassing at least 5 other outlets that are closer.

    I assume you know that Hubitat provides access to it's Zigbee routing table? You can access this by using your hub's IP address/hub/zigbee/getChildAndRouteInfo. With this you can see the routing for your Gen 1 Iris device. If you're having issues simply power down the device it is routing through and it will be forced to reroute. However, since Zigbee networks are constantly self healing this is just a temporary fix. If you are still having issues you might want to consider adding another repeater device. A good rule of thumb is 1 repeater for every 6 Zigbee devices.

    "If I don't like the route, I can manually change it. In my case, for problem devices, I can create a manual route that only uses Gen 2 smart plugs, which creates dependable routes. " Something that Iris needed but never appeared. But to be fair I don't think anyone gives you that capability except for SystronicsRF. Did they ever come up with a better name? SystronicsRF sound like a company name, not a product name that people will remember.

    Wow...that Zigbee routing sounds incredibly useful. I may have to fire my hub back up and see if I can make that work a bit better for me. I am currently on Hubitat and often find the Gen 1 Iris device drop off and they can be a pain in the ass to get back up. Would be nice if I could just route them along a more robust mesh, or find the device that isn't repeating properly.

    It continues to develop sophistication in the control system, with custom dashboards and apps, along with the ability to create even more complex actions and activators. The system works very well locally when broadband is out. I just added my second Iris camera today, although that is still in the development phase. One thing I especially like is the ZigBee routing information and control. I have found that my ZigBee smart bulbs are poor routers of commands. SRF gives you access to routing information in mesh and list form, so I can see what route the signal is taking for each device. If I don't like the route, I can manually change it. In my case, for problem devices, I can create a manual route that only uses Gen 2 smart plugs, which creates dependable routes. That said, there are still a few devices that have not been profiled successfully, and they have not yet created a facility for Alexa or Google voice control. I miss that a great deal, and will be glad when it is enabled. I am pleased that the cameras are able to be put to use, since I have 9 cams that I never switched from Iris. I appreciate the help you and Otto gave us in getting that worked out.
  12. As you have found the set time format does not work in the API. As far as I know there is not a work around for this yet so you'll just have to work with the default 24 hr format.
  13. Never mind I do get a time stamp (without seconds) its just tiny and in the upper left part of the frame not part of the picture so I thought it was BI5 doing it. And I cannot seem to change it to AM/PM instead of 24 hour time as the command errors out each time. http://192.168.23.196/adm/set_group.cgi?group=SYSTEM&time_format=12
  14. Yeah I get static with my clip playback now. Did you ever play around with the time_stamp option? I tried to set the camera to get its time from my BI server and tried adding the VIDEO&time_stamp=1 option but don't see a timestamp on the stream, trying to have a timestamp on the video but without having to use overlays in BI so I can turn on direct to disk. Thanks.
  15. The audio playback should now be working on your stored clips and alerts as well.
  16. I think it worked, I'm not home to make a noise to see how it sounds but after changing the video settings in BI like yours I get static when I crank the volume while watching the live feed were before it would be completely silent. Thanks.
  17. Thanks, I'll try that tonight.
  18. Here's my audio out settings for the Iris camera: [AUDIO] audio_in=1 in_volume=1 in_audio_type=1 audio_out=1 out_volume=8 out_audio_type=0 audio_mode=1 operation_mode=1 au_trigger_en=0 au_trigger_volume=50 au_trigger_method=0 in_pcm_sr=8000 audio_in2=1 in_pcm_sr2=5512 in_audio_type2=3 And here's how I have it configured in Blue Iris:

    It seems like things have been been quiet on the SystronicsRF front. How is the their system progressing?
  20. I ran this command on my Iris cameras ( /adm/set_group.cgi?group=AUDIO&audio_in=1 ) however I've not been able to get audio to stream through Blue Iris, do you remember the settings you used for this? I know it was a long time ago and you may not have any on your system anymore. I'm trying to setup my Iris cameras for my parents since they wanted some outdoor cameras. Thanks!

    Arlo Pro 2 Cameras vs Iris Cameras

    Thanks buddy! These cameras are better than the iris cameras but as you say, you need other lighting. It’s not bad but it’s not great ether. When there is sufficient lighting these are pretty good cameras! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Iris WIFI V1 Smart Plug

    Save yourself the aggravation. Here is a WiFi plug that reports energy and has built in scheduling with it's app for 9 bucks each for a 2 pack. I'm using these for remote hub rebooting if necessary. https://www.amazon.com/Outlet-Compatible-Monitoring-Function-Required/dp/B079Q5W22B/ref=asc_df_B079Q5W22B/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=242027088707&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16296018320404247230&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9012375&hvtargid=pla-416726957705&psc=1

    Nope, they are still useless unless you can figure out how to utilize the internal components. Here's a teardown of the device.

    Iris WIFI V1 Smart Plug

    It's a shame they've been bricked once registered with an Iris account and Iris shut down. What about one that had never been used, still new in the box, would the situation be any different?

    Iris WIFI V1 Smart Plug

    In theory they can be pointed to an Arcus instance, but I'm not sure how to do that and haven't put any time into it. If someone has some time to look at the Arcus android/ios app and see how they pair the device, and determine if it's possible to set the server URL there, then they should be able to be revived.

    Iris WIFI V1 Smart Plug

    Bummer.. I bought a large box of IRIS items and got about 20-30 Wifi adapters.. Guess I'll throw them away or put them on ebay and see if someone can use them.. But I got a great deal, so I'm not complaining.. Thanks for the information..

    Not necessarily, they could be used to shock some reality into the moron Marvin Ellison. Speaking of which has everyone seen the latest from one of his cronies he brought from his disaster at JC Penney? https://www.ibtimes.com/lowes-evp-slammed-racist-derogatory-remarks-hispanics-issues-apology-2818721
