    Anyone notice that an app update is rolling out?

    No update shown on the IOS store for me, but my firmware has been bumped up. It was at last time I checked it's now .065
  2. I used these. They are for toggles. They attach using the existing screws and are open on one side so you can reach in and toggle if required.

    Ring Floodlight Cam Install

    I like the idea of the Ring floodlight cams but my experience with the Ring Pro Doorbell has dissuaded me from using any Ring products in the near future. We are selling our house and I am leaving the Ring doorbell, because it pretty useless. The video quality is ok but it's choppy and the audio is a joke. My router sits in an office which is just off the main entrance where the Ring is located and according to the signal quality meter in the app the WiFi Signal is good. I have an Arlo camera mounted about 6 foot away from the Ring on the front porch and the difference in the audio is night and day between the two. Maybe the floodlights are better.

    ZIgbee/OSRAM drop out?

    This morning at 2:56 AM all four Zigbee OSRAM bulbs I have dropped off line. Anyone else have any issues? We are in the process of selling our home. I have already bought another place and I have the old house staged and I have the Iris hub at the house to turn on lamps when someone comes in to see the house, I also have it controlling the thermostat so I can cool it down when some one is scheduled to see it. I only have 12 devices attached, 6 V1 smart plugs, 1 V2 smrtplug, 4 OSRAM bulbs and my CT101 thermostat. All the other devices are zigbee except for the thermostat and everything else is fine. I have been using the OSRAM bulbs for the last couple of years with no issues. I thought it weird that they all dropped off at exactly the same time. Probably just have to power cycle them, I tried a Hub reboot and that was a No Go.

    ZIgbee/OSRAM drop out?

    It turns out it was not a Osram or Iris problem. Apparently the last realtor that left the house was very conscientious about turning out all the lights which included all the lamps I had set up on smartplugs and bulbs. So it was just the notifications that came at 2:00 in the morning, not the devices going offline. I get having a delay for a notification but I would think an hour might be a good limit. The last realtor left around 2 or 3 so I guess it must wait 12 or so hours.
  6. That would work to, I should have mentioned after removing old name you would need to have Alexa discover devices.
  7. Go into the Alexa app and remove the old name. Seems like this has happened to me before. I have had trouble in the past renaming and getting rid of old names or groups n the phone app, but using the Alexa web link give you a little more flexibility and works sometimes when the app will not. https://alexa.amazon.com

    Hub Battery backup not working?

    You can get some low end UPSs cheaper than a new hub. As far as I know Iris has yet to implement any kind of Hub backup scheme.

    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    Just watched your videos, and I am quite interested in this. It would be great to use my V1 devices along with the newer devices I now have running on ST.

    Orbit 12 station not watering

    Doesn't do any good to name them anyway. If it's like the single orbit timer. The history will only show the default name no matter what you name it. And you can't search the history for them.

    Hub Replacement Automation

    I agree this is something they should really have working by now.

    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    Ebay seems to still have quite a few V1 devices available. I will keep an eye on this thread and see if this goes anywhere, as I still have a number of V1 devices. Most are in storage, as I have switched mostly to Smartthings, but I still use a number of them for turning on some lights in the house.

    Automatically Lock Door

    I think most of the smart locks can do this manually. Check your lock's manual. I am pretty sure Schlages have that capability, although if I remember right it's a pretty limited time window.

    So the plug in doesn't seem to work anymore. I guess they got wind of this work around?

    Well ring is out

    Yeah I noticed that as well, but I figured they were referring to what Vet showed, you have to install that extra module on your existing doorbell. At least I did with the Pro.

    Well ring is out

    I like the LTS features. Especially the 128GB on board storage. The ring does integrate with my ST system so the motion detection tuns on my front porch light, but I can just use my Arlo camera to take over that function I also have a Ring chime extender, which the LTS doesn't seem to have. I could work around that as well. I will wait a bit and see what Amazon does with Ring, at least until my current plan runs out this summer.

    Thanks. that does seem like a better choice.

    Well ring is out

    It seemed ok at first and I even payed for a year of storage. I will not pay for another. My Ring Pro is on the front door which is only about 15 feet from my main WiFi access point, it is also hardwired to my doorbell power. According to the app it has good WiFi signal. Also I have pretty good internet it usually stays around 10MB upload. Most of the time the video is jerky. An object will freeze and then jump off screen. I have three Arlo cameras and they will occasionally get glitches, but not very often. In fact I have a rule setup in ST that has two of the three cameras start recording when the garage door is opened and the video is always pretty good. They also made some change about 6 months ago and now motion detection at night is basically non-existent. You have to stand almost right in front of my door before it will capture anything. A few weeks ago four deer walked through the front yard, about 20 feet in front of my front door. I have an Arlo camera at the front corner that captured it but nothing on the Ring. The next morning two kids walked on the side walk about another 10 feet further away than the deer and the ring captured that.no problem. Motion capture is pretty good during the day. When I first got it it seemed to be pretty good at night as well. The app is pretty crappy as well. They have no thumbnail view so you have to open each video to see what triggered it.. The videos are shown in a scroll-able line. So if you have three weeks of videos and you wanted to go back two weeks to look at something you must scroll down one by one to find it. There is no calendar view No local storage option. You can download the videos but you would have to download one at a time. So I am watching and hoping something better comes along,

    Iris update causes the Gillion's portal to fail

    Worked for me as well. To be honest I don't use web access much anyway. I always felt it was a dumb move to get rid of web access and only have mobile, but to Iris's credit I hardly ever use the web to do anything to my system. The one thing I do use is filter hours. I still can't believe Iris has not added this back. If it were not for this portal I probably would have moved my thermostat over to smart things as well. I figured I would move it over if this did not work. With this workaround I will keep it here for now.

    Iris update causes the Gillion's portal to fail

    Hope it is something they can fix on their end without a firmware update or it's not something they did on purpose. If so it may be down for awhile.
