  1. iOS 2.8 is Now Available

    The Android version recently updated on my phone and is now at 2.8.0. The big change is that I can now log in with a fingerprint, which is awesome. Works fast and seamlessly. It lists support for Yale assure locks, bug fixes and performance enhancements as the other changes. J.
  2. Just FYI: I still never got this working. I've tried the suggestions in every way I can think of. To answer your question: there are no new unknown devices in my list. I've removed all unknown and malfunctioning devices. I can remove/reset the bulb via Zwave remove an endless number of times, by the way. I'm not sure if that's normal. Thanks for the help, Vett. J.
  3. Okay, I may have not tried that. I'll test this evening. Thanks again, J. Mills
  4. Still no luck, though I have noticed something interesting that I haven't before: when the Z-Wave removal tool removes the bulb, it calls it a dimmer switch. Not sure if this is important or not, but it obviously has some idea of what its dealing with though not quite there. Any other ideas? Thanks so far! J. Mills
  5. Vettester, Yes. Though I have tried different permutations to see if anything would work. I'll retry this evening when I get home. Thanks! J. Mills
  6. Well, I'm back. I don't expect anyone to remember me, but I was here near the beginning. I'll post details in the old Hello thread if anyone is interested. Anyway, after reading the post about Walmart having cheap GE switches, I decided to check the local ones. It was Thanksgiving and I was at my grandparents, and luckily the only store around that had any was less than 20 minutes away. They had about 10 GE dimmers, a few regular GE switches, a GE motion sensor, an outdoor plug or so, and a couple of other things, all between $19 and $21. I was low on cash, so I only picked up 2 dimmers and a $9.95 GE Enbrigthen LED bulb. I was excited about the bulb as it's my first. Long story short, it doesn't work. I posted on the main forum, and instead of rewriting it, here it is (which I hope is okay). Does anyone know anything that can help me? Thanks! J. Mills Re: GE PRODUCTS some uncertified
  7. Please ignore the following being listed for sale at this point. I had offers and even agreed to sell to one member (sorry!). But, miraculously, most of the devices worked when I plugged it up. I might make a separate post about that. For now, I'd like to apologize for not selling what I said I was. I'm totally ashamed of it, but financially I had to. Thanks, and see you around. J. Mills My story first (tldr: I'm not using them, so why not sell them--see below): I was a slightly active member when this forum was first started. I stopped using Iris after some issues: primarily, I blew up my original Gen 1 hub by plugging in an identical power connector but with a higher voltage--heard it fry and smelled ozone as I plugged it in. That was right before Gen 2 coming out, so I waited until I got the free one. But I could never get it to recognize my gen 1 devices. I tried to reset them to no avail. So they have been sitting around forever and I just don't have time to finagle them into working again. These are all Generation 1 Iris devices. This list may not be complete because I am at work: door/window sensors: 7-8 Smart Plug: 2 Smart button: 1 Indoor camera (arrived with the gimbal out of whack and doesn't like to stay in place unless you force it/repair it) Keyfob (with a little wear and tear, but still in good condition): 1 GE light switch: 1 GE 3-way light switch: 1 Siren: 1 Keypad: 1 Fire/carbon monoxide detector (I forget the brand; it was the first one that came out) I also have 2 Generation 2 hubs. One was registered, one was not. If you have an offer, let me know. If you'd rather me price them, I can when I get home this evening. Thanks! J. Mills
  8. Door Chime in V2

    Hi, Old member here who got frustrated and left because at the time Lowe's wasn't doing much with Iris. Now with a new V2 hub in, I'm back in the game. However, I have a question: is there a door chime option for the gen 1 contact sensors with the v2 hub and app? If there is, I can't find it. It was helpful testing out which door and/or window was which, and let me know if someone came or left. Thanks in advance, J. Mills
  9. I will update this soon. I dropped and broke my laptop, causing me to do more work at work where I can't access the website since I have it linked to my Facebook account. I won't do that again. J.
  10. ebay Camera

    The camera I bought from the eBay link came in the mail earlier this week, but I just had the time to install it today. There was no packaging--just the camera, the power cord, and the stand. The ethernet cord was not with it, and neither were any instructions of any kind. The camera itself has a couple of minor scratches on the front facing. Nothing too noticeable and not a deal breaker. The only thing that annoyed me was that the mount was loose--I can't think of what to call it, but the joint part of the ball-in-joint that holds the camera in place. I tooke a pair of pliers and bent it in, which caused some more scratches, but again, no issue. It paired perfectly and worked great on both the ethernet connection and Wifi. The built-in motion sensor worked and I got it to record when activated. For $50 and no s&h, I think it was a good deal. I will update if anything changes. J.
  11. Smoke Detectors

    The smoke alarms do not show anywhere but under the devices and alarm sections (in the alarm as a choice for what type of alarm). I myself was disappointed with not having something that gives me an all-okay on the main page. J.
  12. ebay Camera

    I'm going to give it a try. Been wanting one to check on my dog during the day. J.
  13. thermostat Issue

    In an earlier post, at least one forum user was having problems with setting the temperature on the device itself, but not the app. This sounds unrelated, however. In that post, it was said that the Iris support guys said this was working as intended, which of course was/is silly. Perhaps you should try tech support for the heck of it and see what they say. Worst case we get more conflicting info. Sorry for not being more helpful. J.
  14. Hub Upgrade and Login failure

    All was well here. J.
  15. No worries, thanks! Updated. Let me know if you think the entry in the first post doesn't adequately say what you mean. J.
