  1. There is no way to change this within the app. It's a bit confusing, but the app highlights the available action. In the screenshot below the TP LINK EXTENDER and TV are both on while the other four devices are off. The device icon is always highlighted when the device is on.
  2. Thanks for the explanation and for all the work you've put into the portal!
  3. The event log is awesome, but before I allow "SHANE" to start logging my system's activity could you please provide some details as to what this actually does? I would like to know where the data is being stored and who will have access to it.
  4. I was having issues at about the time you posted this, but it seems to be OK now.
  5. I noticed this deal on Lowe's website this morning and it seemed to good to be true. This valve normally sells for over $200. I ordered it and got notification that it had been shipped so I guess I'll wait and see what is delivered.
  6. Happiness... I received my valve and it was exactly what I ordered. It makes me wish I had ordered more.
  7. Now you're just over analyzing everything. [emoji848]
  8. It seems pretty straight forward to me. If the arrow on the adjustment screw is pointing to the dot on the left the the lower part of the motion detector is off and if it is pointing to the dot on the right it is on.
  9. I noticed that too, but the item numbers match.
  10. Don't know, maybe [mention=4323]thegillion[/mention] will jump in and respond.
  11. I got shipping confirmation and a tracking number so mine has shipped.
  12. Apparently someone caught wind of the pricing error. They are now back up to $209.
  13. I've been wanting to try one of these on my sprinkler system for awhile now and at this price I couldn't pass it up.
  14. The portal does not support the 12 zone controller.
  15. Anyone else notice that according to the history log there was a significant number of devices being removed today at 1:03 pm (MDT)? I haven't noticed any difference in functionality in any of the devices the log lists as being removed.
  16. Signal strength is not available for the hose controllers and my battery level is still at 100% after almost 3 weeks.
  17. @thegillion, I recently added a GE Smart Switch and a GE Smart Dimmer and the portal is reporting the battery level as 0 for both. These are both line devices and shouldn't have a battery level, but if you look at the device properties they are reporting a "devpowbattery": 0. Is there anyway you can filter these line devices out?
  18. Without any obstacles such as walls and furniture, the range between two Z-Wave products is suppose to be 100 meters or 328 feet. Z-Wave supports up to 4 hops so the total coverage will grow depending on the amount of Z-Wave products in the network. The maximum range with 4 hops is roughly 600 feet or 200 meters. According to this article Z-Wave Plus features: 50% improvement in battery life 67% improvement in range 250% more bandwidth Three RF channels for improved noise immunity and higher bandwidth New Plug-n-Play Network-wide Inclusion feature Improved self-healing and fault tolerance with Explorer Frame feature Standardized method for Over the Air firmware updates (OTA) Improved product information capture for product certification database
  19. You would be money ahead to just use an Iris smart plug. Then you would get the benefit of repeating both Z-wave and zigbee.
  20. Keep in mind these are Z-wave only range extenders and are not going to help with the issue you are having with your hose controller.
  21. It was manually started. I don't use scheduling for my hose controller. However, with my 12 station controller, I have a skip option during scheduled events.
  22. You don't have an option to stop a irrigation controller?
  23. The driver version on mine is 1.0 as well.
  24. I just added one of these to my system two weeks ago and according to thegillion's portal the battery level is still 100%.
  25. On the App Store.
