  1. Dumb ceiling fan to smart

    How are you controlling the fan speed with a light switch? I have the same type of fan and opted not to install the light kit. However, I did use a GE Fan switch so that I could control the speed.
  2. Smoke Listener

    No, there is not a smoke alarm listener currently supported by Iris.
  3. Iris web portal V1.3.1

    Thanks John, I'll check this out on my iPad when I get home tonight.
  4. Opinions: how reliable is IRIS for security?

    I have had my Iris system for over 4 years now and I have to say that it has served me well as a security system. The handful of times that I have received a false alarm can be attributed to user error or as @sparc pointed out, key fob presence rules gone awry. There have been some significant improvements since Gen 2 was first introduced and I would say that most of the connectivity issues are have been resolved. Keep in mind that all these systems you are looking at use some type of wireless protocol and are battery operated so there is always a possibility for interference or power related issues that could cause a system failure. I would say that Iris would be a good fit for you and can honestly say that if I had to start over I would would more than likely stay with my first choice. However, if you decide you want to include video surveillance as part of your security system there are better solutions out there than what Iris has to offer.

  11. CT-101 weirdness

    I've had my CT-101 for over three years now and haven't had any problems with it whatsoever.
  12. 2GIG Go!Control panel

    I know the Go Control thermostat works with Iris, but I'm not sure about the door and window sensors. I would suggest you call support and ask them. They can be reached at 1-855-469-IRIS from 8am – 1am EST.
  13. Lowe's Iris smart home membership jumps 40% in 2017

    I'm sure demographics has a lot to do with how well Lowe's stocks Iris inventory. There are 15 stores within a 50 mile radius of my home and they are all well stocked and maintained with Iris inventory.

  15. CT101 thermostat keeps disconnecting

    I haven't experienced any disconnect issues, but I have noticed that if you change the temp on an iOS device it doesn't respond on the first attempt. However, if you try changing it a 2 or 3 times in a row it seems to work. Mine is setup on a schedule that doesn't get changed very often so I'm not sure when this started. I typically use Alexa if I need to change the temperature manually and I haven't noticed any issues.
