  1. I had to literally hold the hub to the lock to get it to pair. I have two of the Iris garage door openers. One paired easily, the other a pain. Seems it would pair, but not "secure" pair unless the hub was very close. Same issue with the lock. Put the hub on the ground, would pair, but not secure pair. Finally pressed the hub to my Schlage Camelot lock and it works.
  2. Chat should be up in less than 30 minutes. Show around 9 PM or so tonight. Definitely going to ask about long-term revenue plan. Selling a hub isn't that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpW_0WXnSPU&feature=youtu.be
  3. I think you are probably right. I removed the lock from the Iris app, but not enough I guess. I'll try that approach.
  4. I did z-wave exclusion on the hub before pairing. I think I probably haven't done something right. I'll try that forum members process an see if it works for me.
  5. 2 of the 3 ZCombo's paired without a problem, the 3rd one no such luck. I couldn't get the lock to pair with Hubitat or ST. One of the Hubitat members provided a process to try. I'm away for a few days so haven't had a chance to try. I did several factory resets and even removed it from Iris before it's death. Kind of suspicious that it doesn't see itself as removed. I even had the hubs pressed to the lock and no luck.
  6. Patrick Stuart from Hubitat will be on the HomeGadgetGeeks podcast on Thursday night with me, my friends Jim Collision and Mike Wieger on Thursday the 18th at 9 P.M. E.S.T. It's a great chat group so come on over. I'll be there as a guest to provide discussion on my transition from Iris to Hubitat. It would be even better if people much more technically literate than myself are there to ask questions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpW_0WXnSPU&feature=youtu.be
  7. From your Twitter post I wondered how you had everything up and running. Iris is a prime example of you don't appreciate what you have until it's gone.
  8. I"m working on it myself. Everything paired except irrigation, one Zcombo smoke detector, one open/close sensor and my Schlage lock.
  9. I linked it last night, but I've been installing devices most of the day. Getting around 90% of them linked, no luck on 1 contact, motion sensors, Z-combo fire/co detector, one Schlage lock and one flaky garage door opener. Funny thing it's the one of the two that worked better under Iris. When all installed I''m looking more at this and Action Tiles. It would be great if either would give us remote operation of our system, that's a pretty big deal for me. I'm also trying the built-in dashboards in hubitat to see if the others are worth the money? If not I might keep a few things on SmartThing
  10. The thermostats were most problematic by far, factory reset, pair, unpair, reboot the Hubitat hub, eventually they worked. A few time it wouldn't sense the paired devices, reboot the hub then they all show up, so I deleted them so I could tell what I was putting where. Sometimes the hub was sluggish, or freeze, not sure if it is the hub or the bloated pig Chrome. I cleared the cache, etc. as I have to do periodically regardless and Chrome/Hubitat would respond better. Still amazed how small and light the Hubitat hub is. You'll think it's an empty shell when you first hol
  11. Working on setting up Hubitat today. Not as foolproof as I had expected, but have thermostats, motion sensors, leak detectors, all but 1 smoke/co detector, smart plugs, garage door openers operating. Haven't tried irrigation yet, but I don't think it's going to work. I see it pretty much as tweaking your router.
  12. Was able to pair mine on ST and Hubitat with a lot of effort mind you. Thought I would try everything on Hubitat first, but it's a bit more crude than expected and I'm going to miss remote access. Still waiting to see what people have to say about SystronicsRF. For the most part I could easily get by without a fair part of my old Iris stuff since I've moved security to SimpliSafe.

Beauty is if I don't think it's for me, might push some items to Smartthings if I really need the remote access.
