  1. I am currently using Iris as a standalone Alarm System and SmartThings for all of the rest of my home automation (lights, thermostats, locks, etc). I've done this because I like the Iris alarm the best for a stand alone self-monitored alarm system - and I like SmartThings the best for a no-monthly-fee home automation controller. While my 2 systems aren't integrated - the only feature I am missing is the ability for my SmartThings controlled lights to be turned on when the Iris Alarm is triggered. Does anyone know of a way to do this? I don't want to spend $9.99 a month for the Iris Premium service just to have this feature in Iris. Additionally, I much prefer to keep my lighting controls on SmartThings - I think it's a much better app and system which is much more future-proof. I did try to set up an IFTT command based on the email alerts that come in from iris (into my gmail) when an Alarm is triggered - but it was very slow. Has anyone else found a way to have an alarm alert trigger something in SmartThings?
