    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    You've come to the right place baby. The major update we can offer is Iris is history much like people who join the forum only to find themselves banned as spammers.

    Nest Gen 3 stainless SOLD

    You will like it. SmartThings and Alexa integration is flawless. The new sensor is also much improved. Check out beestat.io

    System backup

    So the SystronicsRF system has at least one huge, IMO, advantage over my ST system. For some reason the SD card on my system crashed. It would not boot and I was dead in the water. I bought a new SD card installed the a new control system then SystronicsRF was able to put my system back just as it was before it crashed. All my rules and devices came back just as they were. I had to go around to some of my V1 sensors and remove and re-install the battery, which could be a bit of a pain on a large system but beats the crap out of starting from scratch.

    It's taken about a month, but I'm pretty close to having a self-host version of Arcus that doesn't take take days to setup. I have put together a set of scripts and kubernetes configuration files (available on https://github.com/wl-net/arcus-k8) which can be used to host your own Arcus deployment, provided you have reasonably deep *nix experience. In my testing, I was able to get tear down my Arcus setup and build a new one in about 25 minutes - far better than my first experience of 20+ hours. This version is still missing a lot of features, like notifications, backups or any redundancy, and a clear upgrade path. However, if you have Iris devices you're not using and want to try Arcus, and are comfortable with loosing all your data / configuration, this might be worth taking a look at. I have not tested recent versions in Google cloud, but have instead been focused on local deployments (e.g. you provide a bare metal system with 12GB or more RAM and 20GB or more disk). Furthermore, nobody besides me has been able to complete these instructions (as far as I'm aware) from start to end and achieved the same result as me. https://github.com/wl-net/arcus-k8 Going forward, I plan to migrate my existing Arcus deployment over to these configuration files, and until that is complete, this configuration should not considered to be stable (e.g. at any given time, the repository could be broken or updating could otherwise destroy your deployment).

    Arcus Smart Home

    If anything gets going with revival of the code, I'm willing to lend my GUI support. Will start with the identity - taking a hommage approach with the various IRIS logo to start.

    The shutdown got me off my feet and over to Hubitat and Ring Alarm. I'm using Hubitat as the main hub with a relay triggering a single contact sensor on the Ring Alarm for its professional monitoring service. I've spent a lot more time on the migration than I wanted but everything appears to be running well and I now have the flexibility to implement rules and automations that were never possible with Iris. I have been able to take over every non-V1 device over to Hubitat:: Iris v2 motion sensors Iris v2 contact sensors Iris v2 buttons Iris v2 keypads(+) Schlage lock Utilitech (Iris) sirens Lutron Caseta switches, dimmers, and (Pico) remotes Orbit (Iris) water valve(*) Dome siren(*) Dome water monitor(*) Smartthings presence sensors(*) Qubino relay(*) (+) Works with Hubitat but no longer using. (*) Newly added post-migration. For professional monitoring, I soldered the Qubino dry-contact relay to a single Ring Alarm contact sensor. The Ring Alarm is configured with 0-sec entry and exit delays. Hubitat manages all the entry and exit delays and when it detects a security event, it toggles the relay after the entry delay elapses. I no longer use any of the Iris keypads and now use a Pico remote to arm the alarm and a valid lock code on the Schlage lock to disarm. I also have Alexa TTS integrated into Hubitat so that there are verbal notifications: when the alarm is armed home, armed away, and disarmed; for the entry and exit delays; when the garage door is opening and closed; and when the pool water level is too high (Dome water monitor integrated into the skimmer that triggers the Orbit water valve to discharge water via the cartridge filter). Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this solution. Hubitat has its quirks and I found the Hub Safety Monitor (HSM) and Motion Lighting components to be poorly thought out. Much of the effort was spent on implementing HSM and Motion Lighting, discovering all the quirks and trying to address or work around them, and finally implementing what I wanted exactly using the Rule Machine (RM). I should also note that a few key integrations between Hubitat and the Nest Thermostat, Nest Protect, Ring Alarm (to sync armed home, armed away, and disarmed states), Alexa text-to-speech (TTS), and Chamberlain MyQ (garage door opener) are dependent on community-written apps and drivers available for Hubitat or Smartthings.
