  1. I also found that a cheat sheet is helpful. Saw somewhere on this forum about copy/pasting device names from the web version of Alexa, then pasted it into Excel. Added a column for "Alexa turn on (device) , Alexa turn off (device) , Alexa set (device) to 50%". Seems to have been helpful for a couple of family members.
  2. I had an issue with a guest using just keypad for disarm, but I had arrival and departure scenes based on fobs. I just added rules to run those scenes based on disarm/arm along with arrival/departure of fobs. I also had devices on schedules, but I just added those to the scenes so they would turn on/off in case the guest arrived during the scheduled "off" time. Sounds like you have covered those already, and the only guest issues I ran into.
  3. I have 5 of these devices between 2 systems and have had no recent problems. Several months ago, I had similar disconnect issues with 3 of them at my home. They would re-connect upon pushing the power button, but would only a last a day or few days. I finally removed and re-paired them.
  4. Did that author get paid for the article? If he thinks that is steep, he conducted absolutely NO research before writing that piece. Garbage article.
  5. State Farm actually promoted Iris when I first started installing it. I turned in some (many) Lowes receipts and started receiving a discount immediately. I think it was like 3 or 4%, but every little bit helps.
  6. Kind of the same here. I have 2 other automation apps that only run in portrait mode, so I wall mounted a 7" cheap android tablet. I only switched from an iPad to the tablet because the iPad wouldn't run the Avi-on app at all.
  7. What sort of problems were you having with the V1 hub? Mine is only a problem when within 10 feet of router. Once I moved it across another room, it has been very stable. I have been putting it off because nothing was offered to current users as far as a discount. I completely understand changing technology, but they could have offered something to existing customers. Lowes went well beyond my expectations by giving free V2 hubs to existing customers.
  8. I am sticking with Iris for the same reason I originally bought into it. They had almost everything I wanted at the time. I'm in too deep to jump ship now.
  9. From the official Iris forum: Iris Community Manager ‎01-12-2017 01:27 PM Status changed to: Needs Info "Re-introducing energy monitoring isn't something we're working on currently. According to our metrics on V1, we didn't see widespread adoption of this feature set. However, we would appreciate use cases for temperature graphing." Here is a link to the official forum topic if you want to let them know your opinion: https://community.irisbylowes.com/t5/Feature-Suggestions/Temperature-and-Energy-Usage-Plots-Like-Version-1-0/idi-p/212#comments
  10. Probably around the same time s t r i p became a bad word. I was posting a request for a power s t r i p, it let me post but edited out the word.
  11. I have 6 of these and none of them will stay connected to either of my 2 systems. I have removed and re-paired them numerous times. I tired one last time 4 days ago. They disconnected and 2 hours later reconnected. When they reconnected, they powered off and then back on. Unfortunately, they were the power to my Iris hub and Wink hub. I have crappy, completely different internet service at both places, but don't have any other devices doing this. Work system has a DVR, Iris, a couple of Uniden camera systems and that's about it. Home is a different story as there are 30 some wireless devices connected. I still don't notice the problem with any other devices except the wifi smart plugs. I gave 2 away, and shoved the other 4 in boxes. They would serve a great purpose if they would stay connected.
  12. Both of mine show the 34002000 firmware. I pretty much ignore them for 6-7 months, so not sure if they are having the same problems as yours.
  13. I have 3 thermostats connected to 2 Iris systems. 2 of the thermostats are the CT-101 variety and both schedules seem fine. The third is a Honeywell which does not allow scheduling through Iris.
  14. I also tried on iPad 2 with 9.3.5. It stayed on each selection I chose. I tried all 4 choices, and backed out to home screen before going back and checking. I force closed the app once and my choice still stuck.
  15. Still updating 6s plus. One iOs issue that has been around for a while, at least for me. On any of my older devices (iOs 9.3.5), whenever you go to Lights & Switches card and select schedule the app crashes and backs out to home screen. Uninstalling and reinstalling will fix it for one or two attempts, but then it reverts to crashing. Not critical since I usually access through my phone, but an issue none the less. This has been around since long before the latest update. The app seems fine on the 6S + also. Sorry that's not much help, but maybe it's only on the 7+ ?
