    Iris devices on sale

    Out of 6 stores within about 45-60 mile range, only one has been consistent in stocking Iris components. I was in there a couple of days ago and saw the same as you. End cap section has been replaced with other items, remaining Iris stuff was mostly on sale.
  2. This was released this morning: https://community.irisbylowes.com/t5/News-Announcements/iOS-2-12-3-release-notes/m-p/6242#M570 iOS 2.12.3 release notes Hi guys, For those with iOS, you'll notice version 2.12.3 showing up as an update in the app store. This release has these changes: - Fixes issue where when multiple iOS devices were logged into a place, only the most recently-logged-in device would receive notifications - Fixes issue where for those on the Basic plan, camera rules were improperly hidden - Fixes several crashes Please note: As a side effect of fixing the notification issue, you might get an extraneous “your Iris account was logged into from a new device” and/or “a mobile device was removed from your Iris account” emails the first time you launch 2.12.3. These can safely be ignored.
  3. Yes. I run one outdoor smart plug at my moms house, and a few at home for cycling router and modem. We also use a bunch for the City I work for. Keep us from having to use the old mechanical timers without having wifi down several alleys in town. Just drive by and connect every so often to keep the time straight. Avi-on seems to work pretty well for what it does. I have not purchased the RAB yet, and don't really have a need for it.
  4. I just went through this the other day with a Wemo smart plug. My phone showed 3 of 4 bars at the location outside. The plug would not connect to wifi, so I moved it inside to connect. It worked fine inside, so I tried moving it back outside. It would work one time, the lose connection. I ended up going back to a GE bluetooth smart plug.
  5. It's not a dumb question. It's kind of hard to see depending on your background color for the app. Are you doing from app or web? From the app, select Lights & Switches, then across the top you will see: Devices on the left and Schedules on the right. Select Schedules and start adding events.
  6. I really hope that's true. I ran Wink side by side with Iris for a couple of years. It was cool to see a small start-up like Quirky partner with Wink to come out with some pretty crazy home automation like the Egg-Minder and Porkfolio. Those items didn't last, and neither did the company. Maybe some level in between Lowes and Wink would satisfy a lot of customers and keep the wheels on. I could always go back to Wink if Iris goes downhill, but I left them to go all in with Iris because it was so much better. Wink now supports most everything I have except the V1 Iris devices. At the moment, Iris is the best option I have used. They seem to hit the middle ground between tech nerds and the general population.

    Notifications Not Working

    I probably should give them a call. I remember the issue being on the Apple side for a while, and I just kept hoping it would start working after an update. I rebooted the hub and I’ll see how they go tomorrow. Tech support has been very helpful the couple of times I called them, but it’s been at least 2 years since my last call.

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    Lol. If I was going to that much trouble, I would probably just experiment with Smartthings, or go back to Wink. Unfortunately, nobody else has a keypad to use the system as an alarm system. 131 devices

    Notifications Not Working

    Man, that was great while it lasted. Notifications for 4-5 days, all like they were supposed to. Oh well. One of these days, I'll call tech support...

    Notifications Not Working

    Well, whatever update to the platform happened this week finally seems to have fixed notifications for me. About 8 days ago, I deleted all notifications again and recreated them with hub resets in between. A few notifications worked once, some not at all. I left it alone and then about 3 days ago, all of them worked. And are still working. This was prior to updating the app on iPhone, so must have been platform update?

    Use Tilt Sensor to trigger alarm

    Thats it! I did the same thing, but screwed the hinge to the door.

    Use Tilt Sensor to trigger alarm

    I have this on 3 garage doors. I can't remember who came up with it either, but I saw it on here also. I can take a picture tonight when I get home if there is any interest.

    Arm Away

    The hub communicates with the fob every 2 minutes. The hub has to see 5 "pings" with no response before it determines that the fob is away. This would account for 10 minutes...

    Notifications Not Working

    I finally took a couple of minutes and reset my phone again. Notifications worked once. I have 4 that get pushed when someone leaves via the garage door, and same in reverse when they get home. The notifications seem to work on an android tablet, but I only access that once each day or two, and it stays at home. Seems to be iPhone related?

    Iris Version No Longer Available

    Until you place them in cart and complete order. The website wants to ship via Lowe's Truck. $79 freight for a couple of $5 sensors.

    Keypad battery life

    That all sounds correct as I remember it. Are you trying to add with Android? Apple? Or PC?

    Keypad battery life

    I have 2 systems with 5 keypads each. 9 of them are V1 and 1 V2.

    Thanks Vett. I'll give that a try.

    Notifications Not Working

    I haven't tried another phone reset yet. I have reset the hub a couple of times though. After a reset, I get the first group of notifications and nothing more. For example, I will reset when nobody is home. When someone arrives, I will get: Garage door opened, "" has arrived, Home Scene ran, Alarm turned off. Then notifications stop working. If I reset hub when someone is home, I will get: Garage door closed, "" has left, Away scene ran, Alarm turned on. Then notifications stop working. Not much time to troubleshoot right now, maybe when Little League season ends. Lol

    Hub Replacement Automation

    The thing is, they developed a tool for upgrading from V1 hub to V2 hub without having to unpair or repair any devices. I upgraded manually, so I don't know how well it worked. So it's possible and they have obviously spent time in the area, just seems like it dropped off the radar.

    Connected Bulb Experience

    Phillips Hue works great with Iris. Set up Hue with hub, bulbs and remotes. Link accounts and use Iris for everything schedule related. I use Alexa to set colors and brightness. I was using Wink for all of my bulbs prior to purchasing a Hue hub. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Aww man... I'm still recovering everything I lost from resetting the first time. Lol I'll try that again today.

    Notifications Not Working

    That didn't last long. Notifications stopped again after maybe 24 hours. Back to the drawing board.
