    Not bad, but I'll stick with my Dahua cameras.

    Will the camera record in color at night if you turn your porch light on?

    If you mount it too high you'll just capture the tops of their heads.

    Not to be negative, but if they wear a ski mask you probably won't be able to identify them.

    Is there an option to embed a timestamp in the video?

    GE/Jasco Z-wave outlets used outside?

    I have two V2 smart plugs inside a sprinkler valve box for a few years without any issues as well. These are recessed in the ground about 60' from my house and the only time I have had connectivity issues is during a power outage. When the power was restored the plugs reconnected without having to anything else.

    Google Home Hub

    I don’t use google assistant, but I do use the google home app with my google home mini. I also have several echoes and have found that in terms of functionality they are real similar. The biggest difference is google home will let you integrate some of your existing Iris scenes into a routine where the echo will not. Another difference is the google app is more simplistic making for a better user experience. Edit - I was playing around with google assistant and discovered you can type text commands to control devices. Not sure if this is useful or not, but it may help with IFTTT integration.

    I have been using two of these outdoors for a couple of years now without any issues. They are both installed in outdoor rated enclosures. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Question on Smart Plug Repeaters

    This may sound like a dumb question but is the Iris hub laying flat? If so, try turning the hub on its side to see if that helps.
  10. I don't use Iris for recording video, but I tested this using one of my Iris cameras and am seeing the same thing. However, the rule I setup in the web interface is working and I am able to view the saved video clip on my iPhone app and the web interface. This doesn't surprise me because the last release of the iOS app (v2.12.1) has a lot of bugs.

    Temperature Card Bug iOS

    This bug is affecting everything in the Climate card. I had a Keen vent that was offline and the app was reporting the offline device as a fan control. The fan control was actually working. Below are screenshots of before and after the vent was reset. This was also posted on the Iris Community website.

    After reading through the description and specifications I think I will stick with my more reliable PoE IP based cameras that are recording 24/7.

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    Still debating.... I think I'll just sit back and let you guys work out the kinks.

    OC821 camera won't pair

    Here's a link to the manual: https://www.lowes.com/pdf/OC821 Outdoor Manual_FINAL.pdf Assuming you are following the setup process outlined on page 5, are you connecting the camera directly to your router? This may help as well:

    Notifications Not Working

    You really should call support and see if they can get to the bottom of this. My notifications have always worked.

    New Difference between Basic and Premium

    I’m not sure how many users you could do this for, but I can tell you that all 3 pin codes I had on my premium account are still working on the basic account even after 18 months. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Difference between Basic and Premium

    You're doing correctly and I should clarify that you will still be able to change the account owner's pin, just not any additional users if you switch to the basic plan.

    New Difference between Basic and Premium

    I have been on the basic plan for 18 months and can help answer a few of your questions. History Log is limited to 24 hours and there is no hourly bar graph. I very seldom use the history for anything, but I have found that if I do need to go back and check anything 24 hours has been sufficient for my needs. Alarm Tracker - This was released after I had switched so I basic plan, but I have found that the alarm history tells me which sensor was triggered. However, you need to keep in mind that the alarm history is only stored for 24 as well. Notifications - The way you currently have your account setup you will not notice any difference. If you have additional people on your account when you switch plans they will stay on "People" list but will not receive notifications. Pin codes assigned to these users will also continue to work on your smart locks. However, you will not be able to add additional people or change the pin codes of existing users. Care - No options for care. However, you can use some of the available rules to accomplish the same thing. I don't think your missing anything else. You can always switch back to a paid plan if you find there is something you need. I took the money I saved and invested in Blue Iris. With Blue Iris I have a lot more functionality for my cameras and I'm money ahead.

    The Iris web UI has the ability to quickly scroll through your rules and see which devices are controlling what.

    Pairing new equipment

    I am using an Arris SB6183 connected to Google WiFi and a Netgear switch and I'm not having any issues. The Google WiFi pucks have two ethernet ports. I have one port connected to my modem and the other connects to a Netgear GS108 8-Port Unmanaged switch. My Iris hub is then connected to the switch. Are you sure you have the modem plugged into the right port on the router?
