    It continues to develop sophistication in the control system, with custom dashboards and apps, along with the ability to create even more complex actions and activators. The system works very well locally when broadband is out. I just added my second Iris camera today, although that is still in the development phase. One thing I especially like is the ZigBee routing information and control. I have found that my ZigBee smart bulbs are poor routers of commands. SRF gives you access to routing information in mesh and list form, so I can see what route the signal is taking for each device. If I don't like the route, I can manually change it. In my case, for problem devices, I can create a manual route that only uses Gen 2 smart plugs, which creates dependable routes. That said, there are still a few devices that have not been profiled successfully, and they have not yet created a facility for Alexa or Google voice control. I miss that a great deal, and will be glad when it is enabled. I am pleased that the cameras are able to be put to use, since I have 9 cams that I never switched from Iris. I appreciate the help you and Otto gave us in getting that worked out.

    Home Depot not a great place

    "Home Depot's official statement even said they give a discount every day of the year" Except that they don't. I had a hard time with them too. After a couple times being denied I showed a copy of my DD214 and my ID card ... Nope … so I said "See ya, I'm heading to Lowes". So I went to the customer service desk and got signed up, showed them the same information that I showed to HD just 15 minutes earlier (since the stores are only a 1/4 mile apart), and I was all set. So now when I go in Lowes. I get the 10% every time, no problemo as Arnold would say. :-) That story off FB may be false, but mine is not. Now I only go to HD when they are the only one that has what I need, and that's not too often.

    Do You Miss Iris? and General BS Thread

    I definitely miss Iris. I switched to Hubitat, and while I've gotten it to do what I need it to do, it's been a complete bear to figure out. If I had ANY trouble with Iris, I could call them and someone who spoke good English was on the other end of the phone and always solved whatever issue I had. The user interface was great and the devices just worked. I found Iris to be bulettproof- I used it on both mine and my dad's house and could monitor both remotely with ease. If any Iris employees see this- you rocked.
