    We are getting close to releasing a Beta version, and we will contact you directly by email this week with our suggestions for getting you started. Following your prompt, we have only just looked at the “Iris Shutdown” thread. It does seem that Lowes has much bigger problems than Iris within its core retail business, along with many others in the same sector. The prospect of any sale, especially one that meets the needs of existing users, also seems fairly remote. The notional benefit to any potential buyer must surely be more than offset by the implicit financial burdens and risks, and the need to commit precious management resources. This must also be very evident to Lowes. Lowes announcement may be no more than managing the expectations of existing users. A non-sale is likely to result in a gradual run-down of the business, and the eventual disappearance of the brand. Hopefully, they will try to minimise the impact on existing users, by extending support as long as possible, if only to avoid further damage to the Lowes brand.

    Shut Down?

    That’s what I was thinking. Definitely making me second guess Iris.

    Shut Down?

    I don’t think we would have seen that if it wasn’t going to happen. Not trying to be pessimistic but stuff like that just doesn’t create itself. Maybe that’s if there isn’t a buyer? The plot thickens. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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/

    You can do this from the web UI on any computer that has access to the internet.

    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.
