    Alexa discovery

    Alexa only finds controllable devices. Switches, bulbs, thermostats and locks. Sent from my LM-G710 using Tapatalk
  2. I am seeing the full suite of V3 devices on the Lowes website. Listed below.

    Temperature Card Bug iOS

    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.

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    @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.

    Camera Firmware Question

    I am showing 1.0.08 for all of my gen 1 indoor cameras and the gen 2 camera is 1.0.07. There is only one gen 2 camera which is for either indoor and an outdoor use.

    Alexa Guard with Iris

    @Scunny pointed out to me that Amazon will be adding Alexa Guard to their line up of skills this fall. I am looking forward to this as a second layer of security to be used in conjunction with Iris. It is a great concept. I have various Alexa devices spread throughout the house. You tell Alexa that you are leaving and it listens for sounds of burglary, glass breaking and smoke/CO alarms etc. and calls you when it hears this. It will also randomize turning on lights to make it look like someone is at home. I for one am looking forward to using this skill.

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    Not quite. We recently downsized our house. Probably over 200 devices but only about 150 on Iris. Used to be well over two hundred on Iris in our previous home.

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    Well, I guess I might migrate over then.

    Is the Portal working for you with the new v3 hub?

    OC821 camera won't pair

    Make sure that you do not have any devices listed in your device list called "New Device 1" If so that is an improperly paired device and needs to be removed. Make sure the camera is set to all the defaults, don't make any changes to it after performing a factory reset. You may need to give it several minutes to pair. Also restart the hub before you begin the pairing process.
