  1. That's one of the first things I did with IRIS - I love the light coming on 20% with motion in the hallway at night. During the day, no response. I have two small dogs, and because of the placement of my IRIS v2 motion sensor, I am able to just use a piece of electrical tape to cover the sensor in a way that it won't read motion on the floor, just upper torso motion. Has worked great this way for a long time. The dogs never turn the light on.
  2. I never downgraded from Premium, and I do not intend to get the pro monitoring plan. My locks are still inconsistent. Sometimes they do not even say unlocked or lock, I just get a report from the contact sensor on the door that it was opened and closed, when I know it was locked. Like this morning, my son stopped by to borrow some computer gear, he used his code to unlock the door, grabbed the stuff he needed, then locked the door on his way out. My history doesn't even show the door was unlocked or relocked, it just shows the door was opened and then closed twice. I tried it with the keypad on the lock - no notification of being unlocked at all. I tried it with the Iris by Lowe's Web interface - history reported unlocked - but not by which user I tried it with the Iris app on Andriod - history reported unlocked - but not by which user. Battery in the lock is at reported at 91% by Gillion's Web Portal. I have not tried to remove and repair the lock yet, but with others saying this is an issue, maybe that won't make any difference. it is VERY annoying not knowing who is coming and going from my 'smart' house.
  3. @dbjhRight! without the monitoring, it is just a fancy remote controlled house. Not really a smart house at all. . . At least not as smart as it could be. Especially now that my locks are no longer telling me who's code unlocked them (gotta work on that).
  4. Mine was reporting "who" until just recently. I have rebuilt the network multiple times, and have rebooted the hub more than once. The only thing I have not done yet is to remove my locks and re-pair them with the hub. One of my two locks has low battery, which I will be replacing this weekend. I'll probably remove and re-pair at the same time. If that doesn't work, I'll probably call customer service. **EDIT** I was just looking through the history for my front deadbolt (Schlage), and noticed that when my wife unlocked it, it said that she was the one who unlocked it. However, every other instance of being unlocked, it did not report who's code was used. Interesting. . .
  5. Is it just me, or did everyone's lock stop reporting WHO unlocked them? Since one of the recent updates, my locks stopped reporting who's code was used to unlock the doors. There is no mention of who unlocked the door using the Android app either.
  6. If I was to switch to anything but IRIS, it would be over monitoring, energy and temp monitoring are the main reasons I started building a smart house in the first place. At this point, I am still hopeful this will come back to IRIS.
  7. Thanks, I'll try this out. I would really like there to be a delay though. In a scenario where people are going in and out (like people showing up for a family party), it would be better to have a delay.
  8. I've been searching around and have not been able to find out if this scenario is currently possible. But, my wife and I are becoming empty nesters and my wife can never remember to lock doors when she's home alone (she grew up in a small town). I know that locks have the buzz-in feature, but this bugs me as I do not want the door to re-lock after 30 seconds, because it might be open while we are bringing in groceries or unloading the car. Or, worse - if the door is actively being closed when the deadbolt pops out and damages my door frame. I would really like to set a rule that would lock the door once it has been closed for a few minutes. Yes, I would like this to happen all the time (whether we're home or not). Is this currently possible? Workaround?
  9. Had the same kind of thing happening with my deadbolt, next gen smart plugs seemed to help inconsistently. Last night, with everything in place, I rebuilt the Z-wave network and things have been solid so far today. I'm glad the rebuild came online with the last set of updates.
  10. I do not log into the forum daily. Sometimes not even weekly. I just completed the survey.
  11. Am I missing something with my new V2 hub installation, where did The ability to turn off a smart plug based on energy usage go?
  12. Thanks, I will do that. To tell you the truth, when I started with Iris, I was surprised this feature was not already available (as well as others). I'm going to keep thinking about a hack. I am pretty good with a ordering iron, basic electronics, and spreadsheet analysis - there has to be a way to monitor furnace run time within the Iris system.
  13. I know about Nest, but how many times must I replace my thermostats (since my Iris ones are fairly new)? I was trying find a way within the Iris system.
  14. I'm looking for a way to use my Iris system to accurately monitor the actual, daily run-time on my home's furnace. Mostly it is just curiosity, but I would like to be able to compare daily run time with outside temperature and also log changes when burning wood in my fireplace insert. I also wouldn't mind having longitudinal data to compare before and after home improvement (like an upcoming door upgrade/install).
