  1. Any chance anyone know if we can get the password for the cameras without iris Web portal? I don't want to factory rest just yet.

    Iris Web Portal

    Is anyone else having problems logging into the portal. I cannot get to work or the camera site.

    Time will tell

    I found this official news release from Samsung, we will see if they keep to their word. For consumers who’ve invested in Iris by Lowe’s sensors, SmartThings already works with the majority of these sensors and will support the full line in time for Iris users to easily transition to SmartThings when the Iris by Lowe’s service ends on March 31. All that’s needed to connect is a SmartThings Hub ($69.99) with a compatible Android or iOS device*, and Samsung’s support team is available to assist with the migration process.
  4. Thanks Vettestr, now I just have to figure how to make a better device handler on Smartthings. My goal is to get audio streaming and video.
  5. Does anyone know the new login information for v1 indoor and outdoor cams? Since moving to a new home I had to repair with iris v2 hub and the passwords in the thread don't work. I would like to make some final tweaks before and after iris is shutdown. I have been able to get smartthings to stream video but I wanted to add the feature of using the SD card slots and recording video and audio. For me it just seems wasteful to have to buy new cams when I am happy with the ones I have. Or does anyone know how to install the real firmware with out the iris limitations.

    Ring Protect Plans

    Just to let you all know I purchased a Ring Alarm, Ring Doorbell, and Floodlights Cam, all from Costco and I guess because of the combination of purchases I have a full year of the Ring Monitoring Service. So if you decide to go with ring and are a Costco member purchase from them.

    Random Thought

    I was thinking, in this forum we have many talented people and tear down of the iris devices, would their be a way to upgrade V1 firmware via one last push to allow Smartthings or other platforms access to our devices? This is beyond my talant of basic html and old flash design. But every note regarding incompatibility is in regards to the protocols of our former alert me devices could they not be changed via a firmware or program update, because I cannot find a direct comment about the actual hardware? I have ultimately gone with ring for security and Smartthings for automation, because I dot want to take a risk with other options being an educator in California I cannot afford costly risks, but I hate how wasteful the consumers and the market are of today. We as a community think everything is worthless after a few years. A great example is my Motorola Phone after two years support and upgrades to firmware is discontinued, companies and consumers used to care about the longevity of their purchases, but now we may as well go back and use cfc's because we are going to be in the same boat.

    Vera Thread - Pro\Con

    I still am waiting to hear what Vera will charge for their security monitoring and when they will launch. I am holding out until I get my visa card, but if Vera does not have monitoring by then I will probably invest in a Honeywell or Helix system and use The Monitoring Center.

    Vera Thread - Pro\Con

    My big question is when will Vera launch their security service and what is the cost going to be. I have found many options but adding home automation to the basic security service adds up to a price I don't want to pay monthly.

    Automation first, Security not so much.

    You can also use Scout Alarm with SmartThings but not sure if I want to jump on board with Samsung I have never been happy with their products and it sounds like they may also abandon the field. Here is the link for Scout tho

    March Shut-Down

    My issue is smart things uses ADT and it's $40 a month for their service, Lowes had the only cost effective deal for home automation and security. It does look like may be adding a security service soon but their hub is expensive.

    Iris is Officially Done

    Dear Iris customer, As a valued customer, we wanted to provide an important update regarding Iris. We have decided to shut down the Iris smart home platform and related services effective March 31, 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are committed to providing the resources and support needed as you transition to comparable smart home products. This letter provides important information on the process and resources available for Iris customers. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR CONNECTED IRIS DEVICES BACK TO A LOWE’S STORE. We have created an online redemption process that will allow customers who have eligible, connected Iris devices to receive a Visa prepaid card to help migrate to another smart home platform. Upon logging into Iris, you will be directed to complete the redemption process using a customized, online tool. You will also be able to access additional information, such as redemption status and support articles. All Iris customers need to complete the redemption process through the Iris app or at by March 31, 2019. The online process is the only way you can receive a redemption for your already connected Iris items. Please do not bring connected items back to the store. Customers can return any Iris items they have purchased within the last 90 days that are not connected to the Iris platform via Lowe’s normal return policy (see your Lowe’s receipt for Lowe’s Return Policy details). Some customers may find the redemption value exceeds the amount owed via Lowe’s Return Policy. Many devices used with Iris are compatible with other smart home platforms. For example, SmartThings is a comparable platform to Iris, and to ease the transition, SmartThings’ support team is ready to assist you with the migration process. Some devices incompatible with other smart home platforms are eligible for redemption. For more information regarding the shutdown of the Iris platform, click here to visit our support article. We appreciate your business and hope you continue to choose Lowe’s for your future smart home and home improvement needs.

    First Alert SA511CN2-3ST Smoke Alarm

    Thanks scunny, I figured as much. I still can have hope if someone buys out Iris we can get some more affordable models, the house we are renting has non trustworthy wired ones in the hall and the owner won't add them to the bedrooms.
