    Something new is coming

    Let me get the ball rolling... Assuming these messages would be realtime, this would be nice to have: Hi *NAME*, the *DEVNAME* is offline at *PLACE*. This may be affecting the overall performance of your system.
  2. Unfortunately, as long as Iris is still owned by Lowe's, I don't think we're going to see anything change..
  3. Currently the Iris skill does not support contact sensors.

    Water leak Drop outs

    I'm well aware that last paired is not an indication of connectivity and I didn't say it was. My point was is that I have had these paired for a long period of time with no issues.

    I have some of these with the newest one being paired for 536 days and I have never had any issues with any of them. You might want to use @thegillion's web portal to check the devise's signal strength.

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    In all wireless connections you have a certain amount of unwanted signal called "noise," With your cameras the more negative the noise number is, the weaker its wifi signal is. One thing to note is that the numbers you listed are negative not positive. In your case the high static camera and camera B have a better wifi signal than camera A. RSSI, or “Received Signal Strength Indicator,” is a measurement of how well your device can hear a signal from an access point or router. It’s a value that is useful for determining if you have enough signal to get a good wireless connection. As for the static sound issue you are having I don't believe it is wifi related.

    That was the first thing I tried that and it didn't help.

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    All my indoor/outdoor cameras have driver version 2018.7, but only three out of the six have sound.

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    You may have a bad mic on your camera. To eliminate interference as the problem you can compare the wifi noise and rssi levels with a known good camera. You can get these levels by double clicking the device's blue information icon in @thegillions web portal.

    Well ring is out

    Port forwarding is a security risk and makes the device using these ports vulnerable to hackers.

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    No, the Gen 1 cameras are obsolete and there are no plans for further development.

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    It is a slow rollout. If you don't want to wait you can remove the camera from Iris, complete a factory reset and then re-pair the camera. After adding it back into Iris it should have audio.

    Alexa Guard with Iris

    This hasn't been completely rolled out yet. If it is not available there should be an option to be notified when it is. .

    IRIS Being shut down by Lowe's??

    Really... you reported my post??? The folks at SystronicsRF.com have not hijacked this thread. They are simply providing an alternative that is definitely related to this thread.

    Something new is coming

    I'm not sure how useful just having the temperature of each device would be. What are your thoughts as far as where you are going with this? If you could correlate this with power consumption you may be on to something. In the meantime I'll stick with my BlueLine EnergyCloud.

    How does your mailbox temp go from 24 degrees at 7:50 am to 89 degrees at 11:40 am? That quite the temperature swing in two hours.

    What's this supposed to do? It just pulls up a blank page.
