    What Platform Should I Migrate To

    You can do this natively within SmartThings. If you go into the Smart Lighting SmartApp, you will see turn off, then you can set a time delay for it to turn back off.

    Best Contact Sensor for Outdoor use

    He was using the Iris V1 contacts and he is putting the SmartThings one out there soon.

    Best Contact Sensor for Outdoor use

    My friend has had contact sensors on a gate and he used clear silicone spray to make it water proof. He said he just peals it off to change the battery and re-applies it. I personally thought about putting them in those vacuum seal bags and making it snug, but I haven’t done it myself yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anybody got their pre-paid Visa card from Lowe's?

    My two came today also, didn’t have a tracking number or email. Glad they came today after I was off work [emoji2357] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My .02 and a new Newbie Questions

    Functionality is a lot better. The new app seems way slow and you can’t do everything you can with the classic app. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Utilitech water sensor works fine on ST’s. Mine paired right up without using any custom device handler. Maybe try with the classic app? The hose controllers are a lost cause, I posted why in a previous post.

    I'm thinking I'll switch to SmartThings

    It’s horrible. I maybe got it working twice but it falls back off and you have to disable secure zigbee join so I gave up after a week. I am going to go with some rainbird solenoids and run a transformer to them or something like that. My faucet is on the other side of my deck and the deck is long so it’s a pain to turn the water off/on. The hose controller I will definitely miss, going to have to find another solution before spring, for sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Gear Thanks to Iris

    The cloud key pro 2 is so much better than the free software. I noticed several features added with the cloud controller vs the free software. One is you can use the protect app with lots of features vs just the Unifi video app, even my access points interface was much better than with the software. $199 for the NVR/controller isn’t that bad, included a 1TB HDD for 24/7 recording and it’s really small.

    I researched the hell out of these (Arlo) for my dad's replacement and after watching a few youtube videos, I took them off the list completely. I am going with Unifi cameras by Ubiquiti for my house and I think I am going to pull the switch and do the same for my dad's house. They are hard wired PoE but to me it worth the headache of running an ethernet cable(s). I was going to go with Nest but am not sure on that one either. https://blog.ui.com/2019/01/09/introducing-unifi-protect/

    I'm sure that pop-up will come up that we were talking about before the announcement.

    I pulled this up on my phone if it helps. I don’t have the laptop available right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes, this is the classic app. I only used the new app for installing the V3 hub and haven't used it since, it is way too watered down.

    I put a custom one on my GE fan switch also, didn’t like the stock one that was more like a dimmer.

    Yeah definitely nice with the remote also. If you can’t find the custom DC I can send you the github, you have to install all three. The fan controller and two child ones, light and fan speed. You just pair the controller and the script does the rest.
