    New Hub can't add devices

    Thanks for the reply. I finally got 1 device to add. I started adding another and 1st went unsupported (1st Gen contact sensor). Version 2 was released to early. Im in the process of removing all of them as I spent too much time trying to add 2 devices. If anyone is interested I'm selling it all: 7 contact sensors, 1 motion, 1 keypad, 1 gen 2 hub, 1 hvac (moving to nest this weekend) will be on eBay. Should be enough to buy a Nest thermostat. I appreciate lowes providing free hub v2 but I'm finished with iris. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk

    New Hub can't add devices

    Last night I got the new hub. I removed all devices from old device as instructed. Setup new hub. First go around got stuck on my note 4 as I could enter my phone number. Tried multiple times without luck. Finally break down and go get an iPad to finish setup. Now I can't add any devices? Tried keypad and several contact sensors. Couldn't see where I could check for updates on hub. I miss the pc access page. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk

    I looked at all the options. Rachio has really came a long way with the updated app. I was considering open sprinkler but liked built in wifi. It feels cheap but haven't had any trouble with it. I don't like how the cover goes on. It just doesn't feel solid. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk

    Controllable cameras

    Blue Iris with Foscam cameras. Way better solution instead of waiting for Iris. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk

    I've been happy. My water company offers a $100 rebate for buying one so it made it a easier choice for me. I utilized my existing sensor on the house. Recently it auto adjusted to +7% due to weather. I do like the idea of a sensor in ground. One of the best things I like is looking at the logs. Here is a example.

    Ended up buy Rachio. Nice setup so far. Don't care if it works with iris. I liked built in wifi. I'm going to keep adding GE Zwave switches and if Iris doesn't expand I'll move. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk

    Google I/O

    Personally, I'm just going to keep buying Zwave devices. If I have to move to another system most support the Zwave switches. I love the simplicity of Iris but I just keep wanting more functionality. I don't think wanting a decent motion sensor is a bad thing. Sent from my SM-N910T using Tapatalk

    I was honestly looking at going a different route. Something with intelligence and better reviews.

    Google I/O

    Iris / Wink will die if they remain stagnant. If they don't open up device compatibility and expand products might as well fold when Google starts releasing products. Similar to Walmart analogy above. So many people own Nests and they look so much better then the Iris stat it will be easy for them to add devices. While I don't own a Nest if they start releasing devices I would switch as I'm a long time Google / Android user.

    Google I/O

    Looks like Google is developing their own communication standard. Not what I was hopping for. No mention of Zwave. Project Brillo is an operating system built on the "lower layers of Android," Weave is a communications system that will let smart devices talk to each other, and Google hopes you’ll install both of them on your door locks, light bulbs, and thermostat. There’s built-in support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and Google will have a certification platform for Weave, which companies can use with or without Brillo.
  14. Newer house has 110 power to Smokes. Wish Iris would have/support 110 / batter backup smokes. Won't replace them until then as 110 power is more important.
