  1. If you have either recently moved from one platform to the other, or if you were contemplating this decision, what would be the single most important factor you would consider in making this decision. Please list only one.
  2. My bad. I wasn't paying attention.
  3. You mentioned free account, energy monitoring and geo fencing. Which would you consider the most important?
  4. There's been some recent comparison to the Smart Things platform being better and more stable. Looks like they are having some major problems as well. Cnet recently reported about the problems with Iris so I guess they felt it only fair to report similar problems about Smart Things. http://www.cnet.com/news/samsungs-smartthings-smart-home-push-hits-disconnect/
  5. I don't think there is anything to fix. The reason it requires a double push is to alert you something is open but gives you the option to bypass it. Imagine if you had a door or window open and did not know it. You hit the button once, the systems arms and you have an unprotected area you did not know about. The fix was allowing a device to rejoin the network after being closed or motion has stopped.
  6. I just performed this test and it works fine. A contact sensor rejoins the alarm device list immediately upon being closed and the motion sensor rejoins within a couple of minutes. So the solution for those using motions just double tap the alarm mode either on or partial. The alarm will arm with the device shown as bypassed and within a couple of minutes it will rejoin and be a participating device.
  7. The latest update is supposed to re add a device into the alarm if it is open or seeing motion while arming. Try double tapping the alarm mode to set the alarm and then see if that device is in fact participating.
  8. I rebooted my hub and echo started working again.
  9. Did you reset on the app or at the softener interface?
  10. My app is working but echo fails.
  11. My app is working but not echo. Maybe we're getting the advanced skills.
  12. There is no zwave on the softener. The board is easily swapped as I had to do that about a year ago. I would factory reset it and try to pair again. I doubt the board is bad since you can see it has an ip address. Sounds like a bad pairing.
  13. Done here also.
  14. This is why this forum is so important to our community.
  15. I've got a few of these and no.problems here.
  16. I have it sitting on top of a picture on the wall. It's height is 6'. It's mounted on a living room wall and covers the living room, dining room and a large part of the kitchen located at about 45 degrees to the right through an arched opening between the living room and kitchen. I have yet to see any motion during the day while we are gone but I've never had it fail to alert anytime a human is in any of those areas. We have two cats and a shepherd running the house all day.
  17. Are you in a rural area? I'm getting the same error but I'm in a heavily populated area and they say it's a glitch that will be corrected.
  18. I can tell you this sensor is truly pet immune. I've been using one for a couple of months and our 75 shepard has yet to trigger it. https://www.amazon.com/GE-Z-Wave-Wireless-Portable-34193/dp/B01KQDIU52
  19. If you're going to play on words I'd call it SHAME. "Smart Home Assistant Meaning Everything", like parity!
  20. My hardware and Reverb are working fine.
  21. That's because you've not torn it apart yet.
  22. Internet of Things, equal opportunity pain in the ass.
  23. And he's done it with one hand tied behind his back, he's got talent on loan from God.
  24. Make sure you have the device requirement set to 2.
  25. I'll test tonight but I believe you're fine. I think under your scenario it would still require the motion and contact activation to trigger.
