    Multiple False Alarm Triggers

    I haven't been experiencing false alarms, but I have noticed that I a few of my motion sensors seem to be a lot more sensitive to detecting motion than they used to be. Also, I haven't experienced any issues with the web UI.

    Iris Hub Bandwidth Usage Change

    Has anyone else noticed a significant decrease in the hub's bandwidth usage since the last app update? This started on March 21. The graph below is for the last 30 days.

    Iris Hub Bandwidth Usage Change

    I saw your other post and I'm not sure how you came up with a good estimate from Mike's response. Anyway, by idle I mean I'm not using Iris to record the feed from any of my Iris cameras. I use a third party app for video surveillance that is much better than Iris. The only thing I'm using the cameras for within Iris is for motion detection to control other devices.

    Iris Hub Bandwidth Usage Change

    How much data a hub transmits is dependent on various factors including the number and type of devices along with the number of rules and scenes being utilized. I have 180+ devices on my system which includes 8 Iris cameras along with 116 rules and 17 scenes. On average my hub transmits 166 MB /day and downloads 55 MB /day. An Iris camera transmits 5-6 MB a day while sitting idle. I'm using the free plan so I am not downloading video via Iris, but I can see that data is still being uploaded. As far as the size of firmware updates and how often they are pushed I don't know, but I'm sure these vary as well.

    Cameras discontinued? Whats going on with iris?

    In my opinion those aren't even worth half of what they're asking for them.

    Rumor is that they are going to partner with Swann for a camera solution. I guess we'll just have to wait see if this comes to fruition. Personally I've never been a fan of what Swann has to offer.

    Two sensors with rules to control one light?

    I am using two motions sensors in a fairly large family room to control one light. I have a separate rule for each sensor that will turn the light on, but I'm only using one sensor to control the off function.

    Anyone having zigbee issues?

    The only issues I've seen are with the GE link bulbs, but they are not supported and haven't been stable since V1.

    Have you got the GDO connected to the same terminals as your push button? https://dtv98j71ej9a1.cloudfront.net/Sites/Iris/Documents/Garage+Door+Controller+Installation+Manual+(1).pdf If you have a one of the following LiftMaster MyQ Models you'll have to apply the hack @dusterp posted. 8355, 8360, 8500, 8550, 8557, 8587 & 8165

    Cameras Problematic with new ISP

    They have to be connected to the internet if you are using the Iris cloud based service. However, you can use the local streaming information in Iris to live stream through 3rd party apps without having internet access.

    Cameras Problematic with new ISP

    Since you didn't replace your Eero you should still be able to connect to your cameras on your LAN. Have you tried pinging the IP address of your cameras?

    It should work. Did you check out the link in the first post?

    IRIS Disconnects

    Hmmm... I have always had mine sitting on its side on a shelf behind my TV and I have had very few disconnect issues.

    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    I use Schlage Connect Touchscreen deadbolts, but Kwikset seems to be popular as well. https://www.schlage.com/en/home/products/BE469NXCAMFFF.html

    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    Is this system compatible with the Gen 2 Iris devices?

    The GE Link bulbs still don't work with Iris. ☹️

    Well that didn't last long. This is the one that was furthest away from the hub. I'll move it closer to the hub and give it one more shot.

    iOS 2.11 is Now Available

    So I added a few GE Link bulbs back into system to see if they will work with these new updates. The first thing I noticed is the new pairing process is definitely more polished. The first bulb was within 10' of the hub and paired with no problems. The second bulb is in another room and about 30' away from the hub. It took 3 tries to get this bulb to pair, but it finally worked and it seem to be functioning properly. The new pairing process now identifies improperly paired devices and walks you through the process to remove and re-pair the device. The first three screenshots below show the new process with the last one indicating the new device was paired as an uncertified device. Please note that the bulb was factory reset between each improper pairing process. I guess only time will tell if these bulbs will work or not.
