  1. Halo Installed and Issues

    I use motion detection in Iris to trigger the night light. Obviously it's using a separate motion detection device to achieve this. It comes on for. A set time that I pick. Works well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Irrigation controller schedule not working

    I tried powering down the controller but still no luck with the schedules. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Irrigation controller schedule not working

    Ok thanks will try that
  4. The schedule function seems to have stopped working. I can manually start the watering ok. I have tired various different schedules, but nothing happens at the scheduled time. Not sure when this started, as I didn't have the schedule turned on for a few months in the winter. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Halo Installed and Issues

    I am aware that you scroll through the different channels for the weather alerts, there just isn't any channel that a clear enough signal. ( well one channel has a weak signal on one Halo, nothing on the other 2 I have. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Halo Installed and Issues

    There is supposed to be NOAA coverage in my area. I can get a weak signal on one Halo, and nothing on any of the channels for the other 2. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Halo Installed and Issues

    I bought and installed 3 halo +. They were easy to install as I already had 3 smoke alarms with AC power. I use my motion sensors to trigger the light on them as night lights in hallways. Works pretty well. Oddly despite what has been reported the color of the light is staying on what I set it on. The radio weather and emergency alert part of the Halo is pretty crappy. 2 out of three won't tune in to the alert station. The third tunes in the but the sound is terrible. I live right near a massive radio tower so there should be enough signal. For some reason I had assumed that it used internet radio since it connects to wifi. Apparently not. It seems I may have wasted the extra money getting the Halo+. I'm hoping they will use the radio/ voice aspect to some better use in the future, and also the internet connection.

  8. Garage Door Lock

    I actually was not aware of the emergency release vulnerability, so will need to fix that. I also like the idea of using a smart plug for the garage in case someone can find a way of electronically opening the door when on vacation. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks works great. Real easy to set up. Hope they bring out a widget so you can trigger it in the pull down window on the iPhone for quick access, like Roger had. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Hub update notice

    Interesting. So far I haven't received a notice.
  11. Thermostat not responding to iPhone app

    I have a similar problem where when I adjust the temperature in the app it doesn't "stick" and reverts back to the previous temperature. However I have found that if I don't exit the app straight after adjusting it, or go elsewhere in the app, the temperature adjustment is more likely to stick. ie. make the adjustment and just keep the app open and stay exactly where you were in the app, and wait and it will work. This seems to work most of the time. But it's really annoying that I have to do that.
  12. When was the last update by Lowe's Iris?

    Yes that's right so I guess we should add it to the parity list.
  13. When was the last update by Lowe's Iris?

    I notice form the instructions that dusterp, that there's discussion of being able to reverse the switch operation as well. I have a switch that when I switched to V2 it reversed (very weird) so that it turns off when you press the top of the switch. It sounds like I may be able to change that. Does anyone no the combination of taps that could make that happen?
  14. Iris web portal V1.2.6

    But the smart vents were showing on your portal previously in the device list!
  15. Water valve and water heater question

    is the water heater powered from an outlet? If so you could use a smart plug that turns off with a rule, when a water leak is detected.
