  1. Disconcerting Performance from Monitoring Service

    My problem with that is they dispatched the police to your house before calling to make sure everything was OK. My wife set off our CPI system when she took an unhumanly hot shower and opened the bathroom door to the hallway before the vanity side and the steam set the fire alarm off. They called to make sure everything was ok before dispatching the fire out. The police departments around here charge for false calls from alarm systems, etc.
  2. New Kwikset Lock

    Saw these advertised, looks pretty sweet. Hope that Iris supports this one, should, it’s z-wave plus so it does OTA updates if Iris ever decides to do them.
  3. Alarm Not Sounding Correctly

    I don't have the external sirens, I am talking about the buzzer in the hub/keypads. Sorry guess I should have stated that
  4. Alarm Not Sounding Correctly

    Anyone else having an issue where their alarm just beeps a few times when it goes off and stops? I have all the things turned on that should be and haven't changed anything but when the alarm goes off all it does is beep like it does when arming, and that is it. Anyone else?

    Mine has been broken again for a couple or more weeks, anyone else seeing the same?
  6. Osram bulb experience?

    What I usually do/did is leave the bulb connected in Iris, do a factory reset on the bulb which breaks it's pairing internally, pair it to the OSRAM/Smartthings hub, do the update, remove the bulb from the other hub(s) and the bulb will flash showing it was unpaired. Then I go back into Iris and go through the steps like I am adding a device, the hub will beep but nothing will show up on the screen, the bulb will flash and it is installed back without having to go back in on Iris and setup all your rules/scenes/etc for that device.
  7. Osram bulb experience?

    You could also install a motion or contact sensor to turn the bulbs on for X amount of time. I have a contact on our laundry room door (outside in carport) so the wife opens the door and the light turns on. I also have a motion in there in case she is in there longer than the contact sensor energy timer. Been working great for years.
  8. New to Iris, but not happy

    No it isn’t common. Make sure your hub isn’t around anything metal as it will interrupt the signal and make sure you pair new devices within 10 feet of the hub so they pair correctly. I am in the process of moving and I put my networking gear near the hub and it threw my system all out of wack. I had to move it two shelves up from the equipment to get my disconnected devices connect again.
  9. Osram bulb experience?

    Yes the hub is required to update the firmware on the bulbs and it sounds like that is the problem. I know when I first got all mine they were horrible turning on by themselves and all that mess. I bought the hub and updated them and they have been solid ever since. Also if you have a SmartThings hub laying around (I have one for a laundry script) they update the bulbs also. I don’t know why Iris isn’t updating the firmware OTA, especially since it will fix so many problems and would reduce calls about them.
  10. Iris web portal V1.3.0

    I was talking with support the other day about my hose controller having phantom schedules on it and they did mention this one and said they are working on several issues with this controller. She didn’t say what or when but it seemed like they know this one is not without issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Updated Camera Card in 2.5

    Also looks like the storage caps are broke again. 111% and I deleted a few videos, one accidentally. We need a recycle bin for deleted clips. Haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. ARM NOW seemed to disappear with the latest upgrade

    Makes me wonder if this is their work around for the keypads not making clicking sounds if you turn off arming sounds. The only reason I have arming sounds on is the keys will stop clicking after a few hours if it is off. It has been brought up several times on both forums, sad if this is how they are fixing their botched firmware update on the V2 keypad. “Ignores the silence when arming toggle” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Door Chime Noise Changed?

    They are updating the hub firmware today at 12pm EST to fix the keypad issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Alarm arming Sound

    Looks like they are releasing firmware today at 12pm est to address the issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Power Outage Notifications

    Me neither. It was just these two out of all the ones that I have. Actually the two in the garage wouldn’t unpair either (outside across yard) so I brought them in and basically “plugged” them in and unpaired them. Odd that they can be controlled but not unpaired from remote locations. I will have to remove everything from my system since I am moving so it will just be easier to start over.
