  1. Notifications Not Working

    My missing notifications are tied to 1. keyfob leaving, 2. alarm set to arm, 3. garage door open, 4. shop door open, 5. garage door close, 6. shop door close, 7. alarm set to disarm, 8. away scene ran, 9. home scene ran None of them ran for a few days, a couple ran after a hub reboot. Then they all quit working again maybe 3-4 days ago. I rebooted the hub a few minutes ago and will see if they work when someone gets home.
  2. Notifications Not Working

    While notifications have worked great over the last few years, including text messages from the V1 days, they have been very sporadic the last 10-14 days. I didn't receive any notifications for a few days, so I rebooted the hub from the app. That worked for a day, but they are gone again. I would not say to expect it, as it has been a very reliable function for a long time. Your timing just happened to coincide with whatever issue is going on right now.
  3. Iris update causes the Gillion's portal to fail

    I never had a live feed from the portal. All I ever saw when selecting each camera was a screen shot.
  4. For those with kids

    I believe you can only turn the light on or off, not flash it. That feature has been requested by several users on the official forum, so maybe search it over there and Kudo the post. I use something I found through Grainger. It's a strobe bulb that screws into a regular light socket. I mounted a cheap jar light on a wall, added a tool cord for power and plugged it into an Iris smart plug. The plug gets activated when someone pushes one of two smart buttons. You could probably do something similar with a floor or reading lamp in his room. But, it was like $80 for the bulb.

  6. I don't like this

    I received the following message in an email from Iris: Have you been thinking about trying our Professional Monitoring service, but are stuck in a long-term contract with another security brand? This month only, cancel your current service, upload your cancellation notice, and we'll reward you with a FREE YEAR of Professional Monitoring — a $200 value!* Great! Treat newcomers better than long-term existing customers. I don't want professional monitoring or I would have went with someone else long ago. In the past, I referred people to Simplisafe for a monitored system. I even installed a couple of systems. I chose Iris because I didn't care about monitoring. Oh well. Rant over.
  7. Avi-on . . . the un-IRIS

    I picked up a few of the indoor plugs for $29.99 at Target. I am currently using them to reboot my network and hubs. Modem, Orbi router, Orbi satellite, Iris hub, Wink hub, Hue hub. I have a couple of extra indoor, and outdoor plugs which will be purposed soon. Most of the time I come across a problem with the network, it's when I'm at home anyway. This just made it easier for me to reboot this stuff without having to go under a cabinet to unplug something. I had the hubs on Iris wifi smart plugs for remote reboot, but just found I was never rebooting them when I was away. All of those systems have been pretty stable, unless I'm messing with something. In which case, I'm at home anyway. I may eventually get the RAB so I can reboot the hubs remotely, but for now, it does what I want.
  8. Rules Question

    No worries. Just saw the exact same post in 3 different spots. Plus, Iris used to have a presence on here but not so much since creating their own forum. Welcome to both forums! There is a lot of useful information on both.
  9. Rules Question

    You may want to spam the Official Iris forum instead of copy/pasting your message multiple times on a community created forum. https://community.irisbylowes.com/
  10. Firmware Updates

    I have 5, 3 indoor & 2 outdoor and all seem to be logging motion normally as well.
  11. Is something going today 1/28?

    I received an email on one of my two accounts that an update was coming. I think the email was yesterday around noon. I know I have some wierdness around the time of updates.
  12. Dumb ceiling fan to smart

    I think it was supposed to be wired that way, but some idiot (me) bought our own electrical fixtures to save some money. All three of those remote receivers have now failed and have been replaced by GE z-wave fan switches.
  13. Dumb ceiling fan to smart

    Sorry, I should have clarified the switches. GE on/off switch for the light and GE fan switch for the fan. I have another room that I used a Wink Relay just to gain Alexa control over the fan and light. I just set fan to medium with pull chain and turn on/off with the Relay or Alexa.
  14. Dumb ceiling fan to smart

    Just a heads up for some of you. When my house was built, we selected Hunter remote control ceiling fans. They are designed to be connected to a single wall switch and were wired as such by the electrician. When I gutted the faulty receiver in one of them, I found the wire stubbed off in the wall box and the ceiling box. I added a GE switch for light and another for fan, then connected the proper wire from ceiling to the fan motor. Not saying yours are done like that, just that it may be worth a look.
  15. YouTube video for pairing Lutron Caseta

    @thegillion, Not needed at the moment as long as it Lutron can still connect to Iris. I switched all of my bulbs from Wink over to Hue. When doing this, I ended up with a bunch of Lutron remotes. I was hoping to put them back to use and Lutron gives me that option. The Lutron Connected Bulb Remote works with Hue bulbs, but the 2 button Pico remotes only work with Lutron switches.
