    Mine is working fine.

    Need range extender advice

    oldreadbear is correct. Even the GE Zwave smart plugs will work fine as repeaters. The first 6 items that come up in this link will work. https://www.lowes.com/search?searchTerm=ge+smart+plug

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    Maybe reboot the hub and cameras?

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    You can also use @thegillions portal to update the camera driver without re-pairing to get sound. To do so go to Troubleshooting>All Devices. Scroll down to your v2 camera and double click the driver version (the item in the very last column) and accept the popup. Then refresh the browser to verify that the driver version has been updated to ver. 2018.7. You now have sound.

    Alexa discovery

    Alexa only finds controllable devices. Switches, bulbs, thermostats and locks. Sent from my LM-G710 using Tapatalk

    I made the developers aware of this bug.

    Ring Floodlight Cam Install

    No reason other than I did not see an outdoor box. I wasn't too worried about water because it is covered by the eaves. That being said, had I come across that one while putting together the parts for the project. I'd have picked it up. Sent from my LM-G710 using Tapatalk

    Iris, tell me when my washing machine stops please.

    I was thinking about this. A simple way to do this outside of Iris and without another brand of hub is to use a WeMo Insight smart plug on the washer. I have a Wemo Insight smart plug that measures energy and thought that it may do the job and I found this on the WeMo user forum: "You can use the "get notified" rule in the WeMo app to receive a notification when the Insight switches from standby to power on, from power on to standby, or if the power has been on for so many minutes. This rule is fired not when the physical Insight is turned on or off, but when the appliance plugged into it switches from running to standby or off. Also, that standby threshold can be set if you touch edit in the WeMo app and touch the Insight switch icon."

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    The developers are aware of the keypad issues and are working on a solution which is being tested. All said we are in much better shape with early V3 days than we were with early V2 days. Way fewer problems.

    @Whyris All good information. In order to be able to switch freely between WiFi and Ethernet you must initiate the hub with WiFi at first. As you stated otherwise you will need to call support to have it activated.
