    Interesting how my battery went from 90% yesterday before the firmware downgrade to 100% today after it [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    GE In-wall Switches Dropped Off Network All At Once

    Of the 67 Z-wave devices I have 47 of them are GE.

    Batteries Depleting Rapidly

    I called and they pushed the firmware back to 11005310 so hopefully that will do it. The batteries dropped to 90% in two days so if they last longer than 10 days, I would call it fixed. I will keep you posted, thanks for looking into this!
  6. The issue is not Z-Wave devices, but GE Z-wave devices. As many of you know I had loads of problems with my GE Z-Wave stuff for over a year. About 6 months ago it calmed down and all were working fine, no disconnects or having to pair them to the hub again. They worked the way they should. For a couple I found that because they were mounted in metal boxes in the wall that they had trouble making and keeping a solid connection to the hub or the nearest device capable of repeating a signal to/from the hub. For one I was bale to replace the metal box with a plastic one and the other because it is a 3 gang box and it would be very difficult to remove and rewire all those cables with making a mess out of the wall in a room we had recently refinished I choose to use a V2 smart plug installed in a receptacle within 6 feet of the problem GE in-wall switch and that solved the problem. Everything has been good until about a month ago when a update to the hub was pushed out. Immediately after that my GE devices all dropped out, not all Z-wave just the GE stuff. Since then they connect/disconnect when ever they feel like sometimes a multiple (>3) times a day but usually once or twice a day. Restarting the hub or removing and repairing the devices has not fixed the problem. SO now I will again call tech support to get some help with getting the problem devices working as they should. This is the third time that after a hub update the GE stuff has had connection problems. That to me indicates something is getting corrupted or otherwise incorrectly updated when the hub is updated. Maybe someone is using an old version of the software or including an old piece of code related to the GE devices and it's getting included in the update which then overwrites the code in my hub and in effect reverts the hub back to using some troublesome or invalid bit of code which causes the problem. I don't know the situation where the code is authored but I can imagine that if not all the workstations of the persons writing pieces of the code are not all in sync as to what software they are using that some may have a different version of some library or bit of code they are referencing and when it all gets put together one piece can't communicate with another. Just a guess but it seems to me like a good place to look. Does this happen to anyone else I don't know. Have any of you that have had all or a significant number of your GE devices drop out seen any correlation to when hub updates are pushed out to end users? Maybe there is a link but you haven't paid attention or noticed. TO people like Vettester whose 67 Z-wave devices work flawlessly always I guess you are just lucky, or maybe I am unlucky. Whatever the case you did not say how many of your 67 are GE branded devices. I have 5 different style GE devices and I have to wonder why 7 devices of my 9 GE devices of 5 different types can all drop off the network at once and all my other Z-wave and ZigBee devices remain connected. Either there is something in the code in these GE devices that does not jive with that in the hub or the hub has a problem communicating with GE devices because of some old or corrupt bit of code. In any case nothing has changed on the landscape here, nothing has been moving that might affect routing through the network, no devices have been added or removed from the network, and nothing that could cause interference has been introduced into my home that might cause interference to or inhibit network connectivity.

    Notifications Not Working

    So, I just got off phone with tech support and let them know about my notifications and a door lock issue and they said exactly what I just posted. Their words was “ There can be days, weeks and up to 4-5 months where everything will work seamlessly. If nothing has changed in your network then it’s most likely outside interference.” This was from the diagnostics department this time. So just expect these things to happen, wether it’s all the time or once in a while. And learn to troubleshoot the system every which way by using tips on here and irisbylowes website. Because you will be using those tips more often than not.

    Notifications Not Working

    Rdism, Get use to the inconsistencies with notifications. There will be days, weeks, where notifications will work perfect, then all of the sudden it doesn’t. It’s a complete cycle. I have tried all troubleshooting to fix this. Any fix is just a band aid until it happens again. I just learn to expect it. Good luck!

    Batteries Depleting Rapidly

    If you have a revision a v2 keypad (those manufactured prior to February 2018) call support and ask them to manually downgrade the FW to the previous version (1100). This should solve the battery drain problem.

    I'm seeing the same thing on V2 keypads. Let me do some poking around and see what I can find out.
  12. Done. Will ship in the morning. Thanks.

    V1 Smart Plugs & V1 Smart Buttons

    I would be interested in the V1 buttons since Lowes hasn’t completed my order for them since January. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  16. I have a handful of these. Brand new in packs of 4. 4 pack increments only because I do not want to break the seal. $32.00 for the 4 pack plus shipping. I might consider paying the shipping for more than a 4 pack.

    Generic Z-Wave Driver

    Sweet. Got some old Jasco dimmers that initially paired as Uncertified Device which now works, including the dimming function.

    Generic Z-Wave Driver

    Thanks again, Joel. I unpaired and re-paired the dry contact and it now shows up as a Generic Z-Wave switch with on / off functionality.

    A quick follow-up: I called Iris customer service today. He said it's affecting some keypads and not others. There is a firmware fix that they have to push out to you specifically. If it went well, my keypads should be back to normal within the next 15 minutes.

    Generic Z-Wave Driver

    Thanks, Joel! I will try removing the device and repairing.

    Generic Z-Wave Driver

    See this thread: I tried this before the update and it didn't work, then tried it after and it DID work.

    Generic Z-Wave Driver

    All, In the April 2018 release notes, it said with the update to platform 2.11, the following would be made available: A generic driver has been added to Iris so that any Z-Wave switch or dimmer can be paired as an uncertified device and will be useable from the apps or web site. A couple questions: 1. When they say the platform is updating to 2.11, is that the firmware of the hub? If not, where do I check this? 2. Has anyone confirmed that they are updated to the 2.11 platform and that a non iris certified generic Z Wave switch now works? I ask because I have one of the remotec dry contact zwave switches on my fireplace that according to this should now work on it's own without the need for an additional switch. But currently it says the switch is not supported.

    Logitech Harmony Smart Control and Alexa

    Unfortunately, there is no integration between iris and harmony. Additionally iris doent support IFTTT (and have made it clear they will never consider IFTTT) so it cant be done that way either. There is no way to have iris and harmony talk to each other... Please go upvote these feature requests if it's something you are interested in: https://community.irisbylowes.com/t5/Feature-Suggestions/Logitech-Harmony-integration/idi-p/102 https://community.irisbylowes.com/t5/Feature-Suggestions/IFTTT-Integration/idi-p/65 Hopefully with enough support they will reverse their stance on IFTTT.

    Hub lost power...no lights now

    Sounds like your hub is dying. You could call support and ask them if your hub is online.

    Iris Camera Quality

    I have a Dahua camera mounted by my front door that records 24/7 and have a zone setup in Blue Iris that covers a small area of the sidewalk leading up to my front door. When someone crosses into the zone Blue Iris triggers a batch file runs that runs a python script that simply toggles the HDMI inputs of my Sony Bravia between the TV and the Blue Iris computer for 10 seconds. The Sony Bravia has an API that allows you to control the TV via the windows command prompt. The batch file and python script are running on my Blue Iris computer so this does not require a raspberry pi or any additional hardware. The computer and TV are connected together with an HDMI cable so the video feed to the TV comes from the Blue Iris client running on the computer. I also have Blue Iris trigger a doorbell sound that plays through amplified speakers connected to the same computer so that I know someone is there before they even ring my main doorbell. The downside is this is also triggered by stray cats and dogs that seem to only roam at night. To control the automatic doorbell sound at night I have a small freeware program that lets you schedule the volume of a windows based computer. The current schedule mutes the volume between 10:00 pm and 9:00 am.

    Notifications Not Working

    I finally took a couple of minutes and reset my phone again. Notifications worked once. I have 4 that get pushed when someone leaves via the garage door, and same in reverse when they get home. The notifications seem to work on an android tablet, but I only access that once each day or two, and it stays at home. Seems to be iPhone related?
