  1. Logitech Harmony Smart Control and Alexa

    I use the same hub but the elite remote. I used Alexa for a short time when they had 2 skills for Harmony. I have to get the remote for searching the guide anyway, so we pretty much abandoned using Alexa. It worked well when we did use it. Great for turning on all equipment to a specific activity, and when shutting everything off to leave the room. I absolutely love the Harmony lineup and have used their remotes for years.
  2. Is oct 10 maintenance complete?

    This is the email notice I received on both accounts: Iris Customer, In preparation for our upcoming 2.6 release, we will be performing general platform maintenance. Please use your Iris system as you normally would during this time. Thank you for being an Iris customer. Sincerely, The Iris Team

    I quit trying about a week ago. It hasn't worked for me since the first breakage.
  4. CT101 thermostat keeps disconnecting

    One of mine was doing the same thing a few times a day for the last week or 10 days. I finally removed it and paired it again. It has been ok for 2 days now.
  5. I set up rule just as outlined above. All cameras set to record 10 minutes by rule, record for 5 minutes by alarm card setting. Result: 2 of the 5 cameras recorded for almost 8 minutes, the other 3 recorded for 1-2 seconds. I had to download the short clips to view the videos, the long ones played fine in the app. I believe most of this is due to my crappy internet. But it does show that the rule would override the alarm card setting.
  6. Got it. I'll be bock!
  7. Using the new rule? Or the pre-existing one? I have always had cameras set to record for 5 minutes on alarm trigger and it works pretty good. Although I have really crappy AT&T Uverse internet. 10 minutes specifically?
  8. When to replace battery?

    Yes, it will usually drop like a rock once it hits anywhere near 30%-40%. Lithium batteries fall off a cliff when they start getting low.
  9. You need to put the hub in pairing mode before disconnecting from ethernet cable.
  10. Terminal is correct. You plug one into an outlet and connect network cable to router. Then, anytime I need to pair something remotely or re-pair an Iris camera, I just drag another one to the needed location. Connect network cable to the device and plug it in. Here is an example: http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/538202/TP-LINK-AV500-Nano-Powerline-Adapter/ I wouldn't worry too much about running the z-wave rebuild. I ran it probably 6 or 7 seven times Sunday while trying to get the fan switch paired.
  11. I just installed 2 GE z-wave switches this weekend. One z-wave plus fan switch and one z-wave standard dimmer switch. The z-wave plus switch was a bear to pair. I paired the dimmer switch with hub left in place, but could not get the fan switch to pair and they are in the same 2-gang box. At one point during this, the dimmer switch wouldn't function any more through the app. I finally moved the hub to that room and used the z-wave removal tool for both switches. It indicated that it was removing each switch by name, ie; dimmer switch, fan switch. They then paired almost immediately. I moved the hub back across the house and ran the z-wave rebuild tool and everything worked great. I have a powerline adapter set up just for this reason. I can locate the hub anywhere in the house or shop for remote pairing.
  12. The previous renter may not have removed the devices from their hub. I would recommend resetting each device, if you haven't done that already. And a 2 second reset on your hub should bring it back from pairing mode.
  13. Clean up process???

    I noticed several in mine. I then went into devices to confirm they were old connections.
  14. Orbit battery life < 2 weeks??

    How far is the device from the hub? Mine are both about 75-80 feet, 2-3 interior walls and 1 exterior wall from the hub.
  15. Orbit battery life < 2 weeks??

    The one I referred to first is on twice a day for 4 hours each time. It is for patio misters. The second one is on 4 times a week for 45 minutes to water some trees.
