  1. As I said the main reason was Energy Monitoring
  2. I have just switched to ST. I have about 5 devices left on Iris right now and I have switched to the free account. The main reason was Energy monitoring. I bought the ST hub because I was tired of waiting to use my Aeon Labs energy monitor. Once I got my first device connected started reading their community forum and seeing all the things I could do, I am now just about entirely on ST Geo Fencing, would be a strong second to energy monitoring.
  3. I turned off the premium service for Iris as of today, and have switched mostly to ST. I will maintain a few devices on Iris as they are on simple schedules. I will also leave the thermostat on there for now as it works pretty well as is and that part still works on the basic plan.. Plus I can use my dots instead of smart buttons. I will have a number of V1 motion and contact sensors, along with a few smart buttons I will probably put up on the forum for sale soon. Iris development as been too slow for my taste. This has soured me a bit on Lowes because of how much money I have spent on this system and good bit of the investment was wasted.
  4. It would not let me use the abbreviation PM in a post I made. I had to spell out private message. When did PM become something bad
  5. The PM they sent was to the bugs I posted over on the other site. Mine have been sitting in my shop since October of last year, but they are still turning on almost every day on the schedule I had before I set them to manual. I also mentioned you can not filter for them in the history and in both cases Thomas says the firmware update should fix them. It looks like he may be wrong, but I will move them close to the hub and wait as he suggested.
  6. I got a PM from Iris saying that the problems I am seeing with my Hose end controllers may be due to outdated firmware. They suggested I move them close to the hub for a few hours to make sure they get updated. I will do this, hopefully tonight if I remember when I get home, but in the mean time I wondered what versions others have on their controllers. Mine both have version 34002000. I responded to them asking what is the latest version and mentioned that I had to go to an unofficial web page to find out what version I had as neither the app or official web portal gave me that info.
  7. I have been slowing switching things to ST. I can't switch it all, as I have a number of V1 devices. They are on simple timers and I can keep them on Iris and switch to the free service. If Iris ever makes any drastic improvements I might switch back. For me the Geofencing is the biggest plus to ST, much more versatile but also much more difficult to setup , as others have mentioned. I just had a GE Z-wave switch drop off ST this week. It's out in my shop and I haven't been able to get out and get it back yet. It's the first thing that has dropped since I started using ST. Although I have been using it for a month or two now, I only added that device a week or so ago. It's kind of odd as it is in a gang of three Z-wave switches in my shop and it's the only one that quit working.
  8. It just changed modes, The schedule is okay. So it wasn't a that big a thing after all. I will have to make sure my wife didn't somehow change it, but that is not very likely. I don't think she really messes with that part of it.
  9. I posted this in the app update thread but I thought more might see a new thread. Curious if anyone loss their schedules. Anybody have their heating and cooling schedule and mode changed by the update? I heard our heat come on this morning and we are having a bit of a cool spell, but it's the first time it has come on in a week or so. I noticed I started feeling warm so I looked at the thermostat and it was set to Auto and the heat value was 70. We never set our thermostat that high for heat, I also never use Auto mode. I switched it to heat but it is some default schedule, I guess, and not the one I set up. So you might want to check it, this will give me the impetus to switch my thermostat to ST and try it some of the scheduler apps available, since I have to set my schedule back up anyway So anyone else see a change?

  11. This has been an issue for probably a year. I am sure they will get around to fixing it eventually.
  12. Was going to report I could not delete or edit rules. I then shut down the app and reopened and now I can. So it is still a little buggy I guess. Other than the starting page I see no difference, pretty disappointing.
  13. My update was normal. So other than making the dashboard look a little different not much as changed than I can see. No new rules, at least none that I would like to see. Well they did finally get rid of the energy card.
  14. Yeah same here. Mine had been working great for at least three months with no issues. I have been thinking about moving them over to smart things to see if they get better, could not as the motion sensor that triggered them was a V1 sensor and could not be switched. I just got a V2 sensor this weekend but have not had a chance to set it up yet. Hopefully this week, and I will see if it is better. From what I have read on smart things, they have problems with them as well. I am probably just going to take them all off both systems, eventually.
  15. Just got a notice of an update to the amazon app and it says it now allows you to use Alexa through it. Surprised it took them this long.
