    IRIS Cameras worth getting?

    When I mentioned that I had a wireless smart plug to cycle the hub remotely, I didn't mention that you have to remove the batteries for that to work. Instead of using the internal battery unit, I have a UPS that the hub is plugged into through the smart plug. Since the wireless plug doesn't communicate through the hub, you can still operate it remotely with the hub offline.

    Nest now compatible with Iris

    Support posted a pairing video for the Nest thermostat. Hopefully we'll get an update today.

    Nest now compatible with Iris

    I have, but after buying a CT101, which didn't work reliably, and then buying a nest, which works well but isn't as flexible, I think my wife is tired of me blowing money on this stuff. It doesn't help that I've bought about 80 smart home devices in the last couple of years... I'm pretty much cut off for a while... haha

    Nest now compatible with Iris

    Which is preferable in my mind. The Nest interface is very refined. I primarily want nest integration to provide temperature and humidity triggers for Iris rules and scenes. Schedules and settings through the Nest interface is good with me.

    Motion Sensor Sensitivity

    You can tweak the camera on thegillions web portal, but other than adjusting placement, there is no way to adjust the gen 1 motion sensor.

    I've seen my system acting hinky in several respects since the update: an indoor camera that didn't record for a full day, scenes that didn't fully implement, and even rules that got turned off.

    In my opinion you should never include a camera as an alarm device. The camera's motion detection is way to sensitive and there is no reliable way of controlling it.

    You may want to double check to see what motion detectors are in use for alarms, along with how many are required. I had a single motion sensor set off the alarm when I was trying to troubleshoot my cameras not seeing motion. I removed the 2 cameras as alarm devices that were part of the 2 motion detectors required for alarm, leaving only a single motion detector. I never looked at the number of devices required, assuming it would stay at 2 and never alarm with only 1 remaining. I was proved wrong in the middle of the night. I checked the alarm requirements and it was down to 1 motion device required to alarm. Evidently, it tries to be smarter than you.

    I'm not seeing any increased sensitivity but at least in my case my system will now trigger an alarm with just one motion detecting motion where there is supposed to be a minimum of 2 motions required to trigger.
