    Non-resettable V2 keypad giveaway

    I don't recall if I ever followed up with you on this but Scunny tells me he was unable to revive the keypad.

    Nest Gen 3 thermostat - White For sale

    I think that Google has back tracked on that a bit. The latest release from them indicates that if you use "Works with Nest" you can stay on the Nest platform until they have "Works with Google" working. I am holding out for now. I have 2 Nest thermostats and 6 temperature sensors.

    GE/Jasco Have Some New Wall Switches Coming Out

    The size was always my problem with the GE switches. Glad to see them reduced in size but it is a day late and a dollar short. I have already replaced every single switch in my house with the original Zwave switches. If I had to do it all over again, I'd go with the Zigbee ones. Anyone know if they will shrink too?

    Actually, I'd rather see it go to Scunny. He will make good use of it.

    Nest Gen 3 stainless SOLD

    I wish that I could switch to the Ecobee. I am just in too deep with the Nest thermostats. I have 2 Nest thermostats and 5 temperatures sensors. I think that for now, I will just not migrate to the Google platform and see what happens. I read somewhere that the only downside is that you do not get the benefit of the Google platform which to me is no benefit unless you consider being porked in the hind end as a benefit.

    Gen 1 device limit?

    Good luck with that.
  9. LMAO, gotta love the power of Admin.
  10. Sorry, I have to pass. I am going to hold out for a single V2 contact. Besides, I am looking for a V2 contact, not motions. 🤑
  11. And if you want V1 gear. I will trade that too. I have a lot of it.
  12. You cover shipping of the v2 contact to me and I will cover the shipping of the v2 motion to you.
  13. I can do it with one hand tied behind my back, drinking a Jack & Coke and wearing a Pirate patch over one eye on a windows box.
  14. Not sure what you mean by disconnect but disconnecting everything will not reset anything. Additionally, due to the fact that numerous people including myself, have been able to reset and use their cameras using this guide with 100% success tells me that you are doing something wrong. The instructions are correct and absolutely work if you follow them correctly. You may not be entering a command line in the browser window that generates a popup window that asks for the alertme credentials. Try this one. yourcamerasipaddress/adm/get_group.cgi?group=NETWORK Look at the image in the post above from Vettester above: See where he pasted the command and where he entered the credentials.
  15. Are you sure that you have the correct IP address for the camera that you are trying to work with? To perform the reset you plug the camera in and let it fully boot. The hold the reset button in 30 seconds and let it reboot again. Make sure that you have identified the correct IP address for the camera that you are working with.
