  1. This may not be new but I don't remember the GDO as an alarm device but I see the it is now a participating alarm device in the current app. We'll have to wait on the new app to see if it stays.
  2. The Zigbee switches are not a replacement of Z-Wave but instead an enhancement to the GE/Jasco product line. Like Access said they report energy and are rock solid but they cost a little more. The Z-Wave switches are still being sold. They will have no impact on your mesh. The add on switches will work with both and you can see what type of device you have in the app under devices, more, product information.
  3. It will and also check that motion in a couple of minutes to confirm it's participating.
  4. One of if not the latest update allows for a sensor otherwise not available or in use at the time of arming to rejoin as a participating device after the fact. If you're arming on the keypad double tap the mode to bypass offending sensor, if using the app select continue to arm. Once motion ceases the sensor should become a participating device if it was configured as such originally.
  5. I'm a freaking idiot. You're exactly right. I had contact sensor on the brain. Let me poke around and see if I can find you one.
  6. Try searching for 773914 at lowes.com
  7. Go to irisByLowes.com, products and look towards the bottom. There's a 4 pack for 60.
  8. I looked at this but the trigger word database wasn't quite enough for my vocabulary.
  9. Has anyone received any marketing email that you can link back to your Iris usage? Out of a few accounts I only have one that uses care rule notifications. I recently received an email from Lowe's about my recent care activity and it was loaded with product links that led back to elderly helpful products for the home at Lowes.com. I guess I need to start looking at AARP
  10. Local viewing is such old news I set it and forgot it. Thanks for the reminder.
  11. I'm comfortable it will work. I'm as curious as the next guy why this was changed but in the meantime you've solved your problem by creating a scene and a rule instead of just a rule. I'm certain there is a good reason behind this and if not it's a huge mistake and will be corrected. Let's keep this thread on the current topic of this rule change. If you have other problems or complaints please start a new thread.
  12. I rarely use Iris cameras but I thought local viewing has been available for some time now.
  13. You can buy the V1 fobs for about 15 each with a 4 pack.
  14. There's a work around now, scene to record triggered by run a scene on alarm but we shouldn't have to do that. I'm dying to hear why this changed. I'm envious of your Blue Iris setup.
  15. I discovered that if you want to perform a test that would trigger an alarm you can call UCC ahead and after they verify your address and identity they can put you on a disregard status for whatever timeframe you need to do your testing.
  16. I just tested this and the old rule still works. I also discovered that if you want to perform a test that would trigger an alarm you can call UCC and after they verify your address and identity they can put you on a disregard status for whatever timeframe you need to do your testing.
  17. Nice find. I'm seeing the same. I'll test later tonight.
  18. Not sure but even though it'll send a call from the monitoring company I'm going to give it a try later tonight.
  19. You are correct sir. While looking at this for my answer above I noticed that rule now just says Smoke or CO so I provided what I thought was the way to do it which would work. However, after your post I went back and looked at my rules for this and guess what, this rule has changed to no longer include "any" alarm but only Smoke & CO. Please note in this screenshot the two rules under Cameras and Sensors. Both are the same rule "What happened During Alarm. The one with this name was built a long time ago, the one named Test was built just now.
  20. Create a scene to record video from your camera and then create a rule to run that scene when alarm is triggered.
  21. I think you'll like it. If I had the need for any more motions this would be my 1st choice.
  22. Did you get the GE or Bosch?
  23. I saw one on Amazon this morning for 28 bucks.
  24. If you unlock it at the lock from the inside it will just show unlocked. Are you sure that's not what you're seeing?
