  1. Iris sent me news about Santa Tracker

    It is true Santa Tracker just gets reactivated every year but it is still irritating every time it comes up. It is a yearly reminder of the developer time that was wasted when Iris was buggy as a crack house and almost unusable. I view it as bloat. It doesn't belong in the Iris app. If you have kids and want this type of app they are available in the google play store including one by Lowes. I am sure this is the same for Apple users but don't know for sure and don't really care.
  2. Local Processing Is Here

    Partly here anyway. https://www.irisbylowes.com/blog/iris-at-home/whats-new-2-7-release/
  3. Title says it all. Edit: *For Those of you having iOS app crashes* Change your time format from 24 hour format to 12 hour format until a fix is released. This should clear things up in the meantime.
  4. New Kwikset Lock

    +1 on this. Zigbee is the way to go. Zwave locks just don't work consistently particularly if you have several of them. Currently more than two Zwave locks in a scene do not function properly. Even two can be problematic.
  5. With the list of devices that work with V2 but unsupported growing, I thought it would be a good idea to have them listed all in one place for reference.

  6. It's That Time of the Year

    That's right. Time to hide Santa Tracker in the Iris app. 😀
  7. Local Processing Is Here

    Thank you for your efforts John.
  8. Iris web portal V1.3.0

    This awesome John. The camera tile is cool and the fact that touching it takes you to a full screen shot is great. Now fix it so that we can arrange the tiles and it will be better than awesome. This screen shot is from my Galaxy Tab A8, btw.
  9. Iris 2.7 email

    It's not that you can't have uncertified devices. You just need to make sure that they are not participating in the alarm. Obviously arrival sensors are not relevant because they can't participate as alarm devices. Just uncheck any uncertified devices to prevent them from participating in the alarm and the update will eventually get pushed to you. No need to remove anything.
  10. Updated Camera Card in 2.5

    I don't think there is a wider field of view in the thumbnail. (The snapshot on the camera card) Mine is seriously cropped and has been since version 1.11. This is a major irritation for me. Edit: If you are talking about the thumbnail on the video clip page I think they have always displayed the correct field of view. Edit 2: No the camera preview thumbnail on the video clip page is also badly cropped.
  11. Iris 2.5?

    Are you on Android or iOS?
  12. Iris 2.5?

    Can you tell me if you have full field of view on the camera card snapshot in the updated app?
  13. Echo for 75.00 delivered from QVC - Act fast!

    Got it on the way. Thanks.
  14. Iris web portal V1.3.0

    And it works. Thanks.
  15. Did Ivee Go Out of Business?

    I am assuming that they are now defunct. I see that they have not posted on their facebook or twitter page in over a year and their website front page still offers pre-orders that ended in 2015. I can't imagine that they have not gone under, the original Ivee was the most disappointing, piece of garbage failure in the history of tech that I ever experienced and they never stood behind the product or made it work. With Echo and Google home being out they don't even have a prayer of success because the aforementioned products work and are from companies that stand behind their product. What i am very curious about is if the second gen product ever shipped. Did anybody get one? Does it work? I am thinking the answer to both questions is no. I see no chatter about it and I am wondering if the second round of crowdfunders got screwed like the first gen backers and customers did. Edit: Searching the CEO and Founder shows that he is working for someone else now in a business development role, so my guess is that Ivee is dead.
  16. Alexa now supports multi room audio

    This is one feature that I have been waiting for. I just got it set up and tested it and it works great. Thanks for the heads up.
  17. 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.

  19. Iris headed into fingerprint recognition?

    Your sarcasm meter must be broken.
  20. Iris headed into fingerprint recognition?

    Why yes I was, that must be it. Give me a minute to remove them and try again.......I'll report right back. Edit: No that wasn't it. I guess that you just can't name a rule with a question and expect it to work.
  21. Iris headed into fingerprint recognition?

    I set up that rule and have been pushing a smart button like a monkey pressing a cocaine button and Iris will not tell me who is pushing it. WTF is up with this rule?
  22. 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.
  23. When to replace battery?

    I am a little more aggressive and replace mine 49% or lower.
  24. Temperature readings

    Climate > Temperature
  25. Halo Smoke detectors $99 at Home Depot

    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
