  1. Awesome, thanks for posting this!
  2. The GE Link bulbs have always been problematic on V2, but they seem to be more stable now than they ever have on the new platform. I am using 6 of these and I rarely have any connection issues. If a bulb disconnects, you should be able to turn the light off and on once and then put your hub in pairing mode. The hub should triple beep and the light will flash three times. At this point just back out of the pairing mode and the connection to the bulb should be reestablished. If this doesn't work you may have to factory reset your bulb. To do this first force remove the bulb from the Iris app and then turn the power on and off to the light 6 or 7 times. The bulb should dim slightly and then return to full power indicating the factory reset was successful. You should now be able to re-pair the bulb to your hub. As for the lock, distance makes a huge difference in successful pairing. How far away is your lock from the hub when you are trying to pair it?
  3. Over the weekend I had a lock that the Iris app was reporting as offline, but the battery level was being reported as OK. The portal status page did not show anything on the lock, but it is working with other devices. I knew the battery level was getting low because the lock was acting sluggish. Obviously I don't find buttons and Gen 2 key fobs very useful.
  4. It's just you... put new batteries in the lock and you'll be good to go.
  5. I use some care rules, but I haven't received any emails regarding care activities yet. It looks like it may be time to trade your Echo in for the new Echo Silver.
  6. Local viewing is available or you wouldn't be able to use the Iris cameras with a 3rd party software. Enough said....
  7. Thanks, maybe I'll keep the old rule just case I ever decide to change my service level back. However, with the video capabilities I have become accustom to with Blue Iris, I doubt I'll ever go back to using Iris for video surveillance.
  8. I still have my old existing camera rule and even though it states "any" on the rule definition, if you go into the properties it has been changed to "smoke or CO alarm".
  9. So out of curiosity does the original rule still work when any alarm is triggered?
  10. I downgraded to the basic plan so I don't have access to the camera rules anymore, but I'm pretty sure there was one under Cameras & Sensors named "What happened during an alarm?"
  11. Mine stopped reporting who when I downgraded from premium to the basic service.
  12. I recently tripped the main breaker in my house which caused the scheduling function on my irrigation controller to stop working. The only way I found to restore this was to force remove the controller from the app and do a factory reset. Then I had to re-paired the controller to the hub, setup my zone watering durations and recreate the schedules. Everything is now working again.
  13. Is the fob new or used?
  14. You could try a 2 second reset on your hub before pairing the fob.
  15. Yep, my bad... not sure what I was thinking. Anyway, this may help:
  16. The reset button is inside the fob not on the side. Sent from my SM-T280 using Tapatalk
  17. Go back into the App Store and then into updates. At the top of the list touch on where it says Purchases and then My Purchases. Scroll down the list and see if the Iris by Lowe's is included.
  18. Since you are seeing the update option it means the app is installed on your phone. You can verify this by going into "Settings" on your phone and then scroll down to your applications and look for Iris by Lowe's. Then go back to your main screen and find the app and delete it. After this is done go back to the App Store and reinstall the app.
  19. Hmmm... you're unable to download from Apple App Store? This doesn't make sense, can you attach a screenshot?
  20. I'm sure you can unload all your unwanted devices by listing them on this forum under "Off Topic / Market Place."
  21. Correction.... it's the device driver that's updated. "devadv:driverversion":"1.1"
  22. It only finds your contacts that have an echo or the Alexa app installed on their phone. If you want to add others they must install the app first.
  23. Yep, I was just about to post the same thing. https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/9/15592686/alexa-voice-calling-messaging-features-announced-amazon-echo
  24. That's because doing this process updates the firmware on the lock. You aren't aware this is what's happening, but if you check the lock's firmware on the Gillian's portal before and after the process you'll see that it changes. ***Edit... It's the device driver that's updated not the firmware.
  25. I just enabled mine last week and all of my schedules are working. You may want to try removing your existing schedules and re-create new ones.
