  1. When a Halo smoke alarm is assigned to certain rooms in the Iris app, the Halo system reports the incorrect room or no room at all when conducting a self-test: "Upstairs" is reported as "Study" "Kids Bedroom" is not reported as any room "Basement" is not reported as any room

    Too bad that the printed circuit board inside my meter reader sensor has literally disintegrated.
  3. Iris+ For Gen 2 - Alternative Android Application

    yuriypgh, I hope that you intend to make your research on the v2.0 API public as thegillion has done.
  4. Backend Iris 2.0 Server Info

    His original post on github has since been edited to remove URLs to Iris back-end and development servers. (A common mistake made by developers when asking for help online--they forget to change product-specific information to something generic.)
  5. Landscape lighting

    Great idea for a write up to put in the hacks/how to section. This would be of benefit to our community.
  6. Backend Iris 2.0 Server Info

    I have been able to write a third-party app that successfully logs into the service ( [NOT billing.irisbylowes])... but it seems that after this login an encrypted websocket is created by the mobile app, thus making further third-party development impossible without documentation from Lowe's.
  7. Backend Iris 2.0 Server Info

    Just found this interesting posting on GitHub from an Iris developer (JeffPatton1971): There are several Iris 2.0 back-end and development server urls listed. In fact, if you go to https://bc.irisbylowes.comyou are prompted to login with a username and password. Could this be the beginning of a web portal? Is this used by the mobile app for login? Could this be used as a starting point for a v2 API?
  8. Android Push Notifications Have No Meaning

    It blows my mind that something this simple STILL has not been fixed.
  9. completely disapointed

    I agree. If you don't like Iris products then take them back. Many Lowes stores I've dealt with will take stuff back with or without the receipt and with or without the packaging. Just speak with the store management. Very rarely have I been disappointed by Lowes store management. If you are unhappy with the paid service, and you feel like you've been sold something other than what you've expected, then cancel the service and contact your credit card company for a chargeback. It's not a complicated process, and YMMV depending on your CC company. Just about everyone on this forum who use v2 are disappointed how Iris was released with so many bugs and without all the familiar functionality from v1. Essentially we have all been ongoing, unpaid beta testers for essentally a build-and-fix product. But at the same time we must all remember that Lowes is pretty new in this arena (v1 was developed by AlertMe). Hopefully their processes for development and testing will mature rapidly.
  10. Android 1.7

  11. Android 1.7

    And apparently with this new release they've managed to break the Alarm card. It's crashing every time for me. But I will say that I love the idea of the WiFi Thermostat integration.
  12. Open/Close Garage Door With Fob

    This only works if you are willing to wait in your driveway up to five minutes before the door opens because it can take the hub that long to sense the fob present, if at all.
  13. Iris Q&A - Submit Your Questions Here

    When will Iris have all the functionality that we are used to in v1? What will happen for those of us who purchased v1 devices that you have chosen not to support in v2? Why aren't garage doors treated as doors (cannot add to alarm devices... no chimes)? Why can't we decide more parameters over our system (timeout parameters for keyfobs... duration in rules... etc) When will we see an API? (This was a big plus in v1 and allowed for programmers to write apps/interoperability with other systems... etc.) When will we see an alternative to the mobile only app? (Some customers cannot use mobile devices at work and the only interface available is Web browser) When can we see more interoperability with more thermostats (Honeywell wifi... nest... etc, Honeywell has an app used by Wink for example that allows users to integrate their thermostats with Wink)? How did the beta test go? Will there be additional testing in the future? Will there be interconnected and hardwired smoke/co detectors? When competitors are offering free control of devices... why was a decision made to keep the $9.99 premium option in addition to the new $20 monitoring service? Why do our systems stop working when the Internet goes down?
  14. Garage Door Parity

    I purchased the Iris GDO... and I expect it to work in v2 as it did in v1. Thanks for the sugestion, but I don't want to buy and engineer something in addition to what I already have. I can't imagine this would be hard for the developers to implement.
  15. Garage Door Parity

    A garage door is a door, however it is not listed as one under the options to allow a chime when a door is opened or to add the garage door to the list of devices that trigger an alarm. I believe these were options in v1 and should be added as options to v2.
