    I am having weird stuff happen also. Door sensors not chiming for minutes after the door is opened, the lights they control not coming on for literally two minutes. All my devices going off-line or to low signal and then coming back. This has been happening ever since the last hub upgrade where the hub OS was updated 4.07r07 (2.3). It has been mentioned on the forum that this can happen when optimize the network for z-wave devices, and it happens automatically for zigbee devices. I agree with ZBMAN, "I wish they would update or leave it alone before they cause harm to someone."

    Thought the forum members might like to take a look at this new idea on Indiegogo and discuss here. Looks like this is something we all need as most if not all of us have a ton of Internet devices in our homes. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/1362027/fblk

    This kind of sluggishness had been plaguing my system since the last update. I also had a keyfob drop off the system despite being left on the same desk that the hub lives on. That had the effect of arming the alarm and having it go off while folks who were home were two floors away, which was embarrassing considering there were guests in the house at the time. Glad I am not alone.

    Okay, I have to chime in here on this. Really guys...come on. $49 for whatever it is 6/9/12 months of service. Sounds like they are offering the members here to get 12 months of service. To me $49 is more the worth it to try it out and see how well it works/functions. Not a big bank breaker. Like ALL of you, we all have a ton of web based toys in our homes now and you know that the threat of an intruder trying to hack in is only going to grow larger. I'm willing to take a look at a new creative idea that might help prevent that or at least keep the kiddie scripters out of my stuff. I don't have time everyday, all day to review my logs on my server that capture all my inbound/outbound traffic. It's time consuming....but yes I do it so that if I am hacked I can at least go back and look at what happened and how. I'm hoping for something like Cujo that will do most of that leg work for me and STOP the possible threat. And of course if they (Cujo) are willing in the next gen to tackle the security of zigbee/z-wave that that's an added bonus. Perfect what you have first of course and then move on to protecting other things. I'm really looking forward to checking mine out when it arrives. Always fun to play with new toys.

    Indoor camera wont connect WiFi

    IMHO opinion I don't think setting up a 5 GHz network through a dual band router is going to fix this issue, but I am not there and I am frequently wrong :-) What I did to resolve a similar issue was to pace a wifi "extender" about 10 feet from the camera, I then re-pared the camera and changed the wireless to connect with that device. My second step was to go into the router settings and add all my cameras to the list of reserved IP addresses, this means that when a camera loses connection and then reconnects it is given the same IP address and no other device gets it. Now the issue is that when the router goes down, power, signal loss etc, and comes back on-line the wifi extender has to be rebooted or the two cameras attached don't reconnect. I solved this by adding a Iris plug and can re-boot the extender using this. I guess if you have a lot of devices that are 5 GHz compatible and they are not using the 2.4 GHz band any longer it could cut down on congestion on that bandwidth and this will solve the problem.

    My front door lock was unlocked by magic rule at 1:26 am last night!!! Iris is starting to worry me. I wish they would update or leave it alone before they cause harm to someone.

    You are correct, they are 2.4GHz only.

    I did look this over. It does look like a good idea. I invested in one. Firewalls on typical home routers are lackluster at best. something that is passing threw my system going in or out is monitored by this. Looks good to me!
