  1. The temporary solution is to unplug the Ethernet cable and wait for the hub to roll over to cellular and then plug it back in. A permanent fix should be included in the next release.
  2. I am a little more aggressive and replace mine 49% or lower.
  3. Climate > Temperature
  4. Lowes prices have been droped back down to match Home Depot's prices but Halo Labs have notified sellers of an upcoming price increase. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. A simple contact sensor will give you temperature readings and allow you to create temperature rules. I have them in all of my refrigerators and freezers. Scunny can speak to how high of a temp the rules will be effective. He uses them to control heaters in his business.
  6. Huh, either Lowes just raised the price or they have made a mistake. They were $99 and $129 Last time I looked. I'll send off a note to see what the deal is.
  7. No that is the same price. The Halo+ is $30 more.
  8. I am raising my grade to a B based on the improvement in stability, fixing the duration rules and the addition of Echo advanced skills.
  9. Mine shipped as well.
  10. These are the 1 inch ones. Most people need 3/4 inch ones. That being said I just ordered one for another house and will plumb it down to 3/4 inches.
  11. A wire basket of bulbs. For the others, I was having some Z wave lock issues. It turns out that my hub was next to a wall on the other side of which is my garage. On a shelf in the garage (not realized by me) next to the hub was a wire basket that was full of bulbs that I had removed from the house and replaced with led's. The wire basket and bulbs were acting as a Faraday cage and blocking the signal from the hub to the locks. Removing the wire basket of bulbs solved the issue.
  12. I was just about to say the same thing. GE devices are actually pretty stable.
  13. Did you try to enter your code and hit the off button on the keypad?
  14. @pavalov build your rule to turn on the device "and leave it" when humidity exceeds your threshold. Then create another rule to turn off the device "and leave it" when the humidity falls below the threshold of your choice. This will create a virtual humidistat for you.
  15. As it turns out my dramatic improvement was caused from the antenna picking up a very strong 3G signal vs a very weak 4G signal without it. I put the usb dongle in a computer and did a speed test for both weak 4G and strong 3G and was better off with the strong 3G. Using the computer software that the dongle loads I set mine to use 3G only and have had consistent 5 bars since. I have the logo facing towards the closest tower and it is inside the house. Testing with and without the antenna showed speed improvements with the antenna in all cases for me. Three to four bars of 4G should be more than enough signal.
