    Something new is coming

    I am working on something cool and what everything wants. It's in the early stages but things are looking good. I am just hoping Iris will stay alive for everyone to see it.

    Something new is coming

    Okay so this has taken a lot longer to make work then I wanted. Here is the daily watt-hour usage of my devices that report power usage. How it does this is simple. It plots the data every 5 mins. Then average the plots to make watt-hour. Then add every hour together for daily watt-hour. Saves all of them to a new table in the database for faster access.

    IRIS Being shut down by Lowe's??

    Throughout the last 7 days we’ve been adding more content to the SystronicsRF.com website, and, as promised, we are highlighting the additions as they become available. Some changes have been made in response to visitor feedback, including improved access to the table of USB network adapters, and a description of the configuration of Raspberry Pi hub, both in the Installation area, and the addition of an applications area. Following recent questions from both registered users and forum members, we've included a new FAQs section. Further new sections include Designing Applications, Heating Applications and how we're bringing your earlier AlertMe and Iris devices back to life. We welcome your comments and questions.

    Building the A.I. is what I am working on now. I also have 2 ways of having Shane monitor your home. You can keep a webpage open or invite him in with the Iris app. More to come on this later.

    The keypad used to beep, notifying you the system was about to go into full alarm when a sensor had been triggered. With the new Hub, this feature went away. Now, the keypad lights up but doesn't beep when a sensor has been triggered and when you forget to check the keypad, the system will go to full alarm without giving you a warning like it used to.

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    It could also just be a bad mic in the camera. These mics are cheap as dirt and sometimes if they get banged around too much or the camera got dropped they can be useless. The camera may still work fine, but the mic element will be toast. Same goes for the speaker if you can call it that. This would apply to any remote camera, not just the Iris cameras. The cheaper they are I think it is more likely the mic and speaker are next to useless or of poor quality/reliability. The $19 Wyze cameras have a mic and speaker which are nothing to write home about. The speaker being much worse than the mic as far as sound quality/intelligibility. I have a bunch of them and the speakers on all are poor, the mic pick up sound is decent for what they are.

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    In all wireless connections you have a certain amount of unwanted signal called "noise," With your cameras the more negative the noise number is, the weaker its wifi signal is. One thing to note is that the numbers you listed are negative not positive. In your case the high static camera and camera B have a better wifi signal than camera A. RSSI, or “Received Signal Strength Indicator,” is a measurement of how well your device can hear a signal from an access point or router. It’s a value that is useful for determining if you have enough signal to get a good wireless connection. As for the static sound issue you are having I don't believe it is wifi related.

    Really... you reported my post??? The folks at SystronicsRF.com have not hijacked this thread. They are simply providing an alternative that is definitely related to this thread.

    Best adhesive strips for sensors

    Look at 394705 at Lowe's. You'll have to trim to size but it'll never fall off. Warning it will also remove the outer skin on drywall if you ever remove it so be careful that you put it where you want it the 1st time.

    This was released this morning: https://community.irisbylowes.com/t5/News-Announcements/iOS-2-12-3-release-notes/m-p/6242#M570 iOS 2.12.3 release notes Hi guys, For those with iOS, you'll notice version 2.12.3 showing up as an update in the app store. This release has these changes: - Fixes issue where when multiple iOS devices were logged into a place, only the most recently-logged-in device would receive notifications - Fixes issue where for those on the Basic plan, camera rules were improperly hidden - Fixes several crashes Please note: As a side effect of fixing the notification issue, you might get an extraneous “your Iris account was logged into from a new device” and/or “a mobile device was removed from your Iris account” emails the first time you launch 2.12.3. These can safely be ignored.

    Same here. I have a V1 motion sensor outside but well protected for over 2 years. It watches the back porch and turns on the light at night for 2 minutes if it sees motion. So when you come walking up to the door it spots you before your foot hits the first step and BAM! the light is on just like that. I wish it were possible to have motion sensors fire off the door chime to the keypads and/or hub when it sees motion. That is something that I can't believe they don't have enabled. I mean why limit a motion sensor to only be used to operate a switch or turn on video recording? Being able to watch for movement and have an audible alert to the keypads and/or hub would be great. Same goes for the not-so-smart button, you can't trigger a chime on the keypads when a smart button used as a doorbell is pressed, the chime goes only to the hub. I can't hear that feeble hub ding throughout my house even on the same floor. If I am in the basement working in my shop I never hear the hub upstairs chime. We use a not-so-smart button as our doorbell. I guess that was a not so smart decision on my part, believing the promise that they were going to enable that feature with the V2 hub but it never happened.

    I'd like a motion sensor only.. adjustable would be really awesome.. but probably dreaming with my eyes open My preference would be a ZigBee device.. since I've had all kinds of trouble with Z-wave devices on my Iris system.

    Cortana to control Iris

    I would like to see if Iris can be added to Windows 10 Cortana support so that we can control our smart devices from our PC's. Currently the Smart Services available are: Hue, SmartThings, Nest, Insteon, and Wink. Seems like this would be a great feature to have! See link below: https://www.engadget.com/2017/10/06/cortana-connected-home-windows-10/

    I have used a V1 motion sensor outside with no cover but I did caulk it up. But yeah I agree an official outdoor unit would be nice.

    I've had an Iris v2 motion sensor under my eves in front of my garage door in weather between -14 and 101 for almost 2 years with no issues. It isn't outdoor rated but it has worked fine as long as it is sheltered sufficiently.

    Mobile Phone App as Device

    Well 2017 is half over and we still don't have geofencing. Seems like this needs to be brought up again with the developers the next time someone has contact with them. Personally I would love geofencing. I have a Gen 1 keypad which is buggy at best and I can't mount it on the wall in my laundry which where the entry door from the garage is located because it doesn't have the range to work reliably from that location. Now we keep it in a drawer and set it out when we want to arm the system. Arming the system is a pain because the keypad does strange things and you have to try two, three, or more times before the system arms so often we don't set it when we won't be gone long.

    Contact Sensor For Garage Door

    I had the same issue. I came up with this using a small door hinge: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uecg7l2bbmpuypc/photo%20dec%2019%2C%208%2059%2037%20am.jpg?dl=0 Works great.
