  1. My iris grade is...

    The service itself stays connected, but I have numerous devices that don't stay connected, nor do they reliably report their status. Garage doors being the biggest offender.
  2. My iris grade is...

    C at best. More affordable than most. It simply isn't reliable. Numerous disconnects. Showing improper closure status of my garage doors. Obviously a very important thing. The closed architecture is killing me as I want to integrate other devices into my system such as Automatic, EcoBee and the cameras remain crap.
  3. Lowes layoff

    Recently called Iris support and Megan? was in Wisconsin. Super helpful
  4. Garage Door False Notifications

    I put contact sensors and a camera staring down both my garage doors. GD itself often doesn't report correct status.
  5. Is Iris going out of business?

    On a recent flight sat beside a guy who works as a partner with Home Depot. Says overall HD is eating Lowe's lunch at the moment. Based on my local Lowe's I would believe it. Service there is non-existent.
  6. $99 Nucleus...is it dying?

    I have 2 Echo Shows on order. Guess Amazon pulled an Apple and sherlocked them.
  7. New Iris Pro Monitoring Email

    My part of S.C. too. I was talking with tech support. Said she's in Wisconsin and said a good portion of their customers are in The South.
  8. Echo Show

    I have two Echoes and a Tap already. The Show would look better in the kitchen than the Echo and I personally think it has a lot of utility in there. Give the 2nd Show to my Mom as a Christmas present. I've seen some mention about messaging. If I buy them both under my account they'll come registered to me. I assume it's possible to register to her so she doesn't get all of my messages.
  9. Looks like Iris was Featured in an Engadget Article

    I personally think the pricing is pretty competitive. To make sure I'm understanding correctly you get the Premium features I already pay $10 per month for, cellular backup and Pro Monitoring? If so what a deal. I had ADT before for $45/month. I asked Wife to get a quote to come home and find we under contract for 3 door sensors and they used the old control panel that was in the house. I was furious to say the least. Ultimately paid $500 to get out of that contract.
  10. Echo Show

    Most people won't care but us. I'm quite interested in the Show as an easy way for the kids to message Me, Wife and Grandparents. The Wife (Finance Committee) however isn't as thrilled about it. Thinking I could sell my Surface 3 and one of the Echoes to cover the cost. You buying one?
  11. Iris vs SmartThings

    Kind of the same for me, but keep Iris more as a security system. I would really like the Ring Floodlight/Doorbell cams, Automatic and a few other devices. I do like everything under Iris being in the one app, and I couldn't even begin to change to ST for the prices I paid for my Iris devices.
  12. "Ring" doorbell support.

    Agreed. Really like the new Floodlight Cam.
  13. I assume as always YMMV but keypad on sale for $2.50 at my local store through 5/9. I thought the recent $16 deal was good. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Iris-White-Security-Alarm-Keypad-Works-with-Iris/999925326
  14. Garadget

    I was quite disappointed when they canceled Pebble Time2 orders, I was looking forward to the bigger screen. I am more interested in a notifications device than anything. I bought a FitBit Blaze, but likely will sell it as it just isn't what I want. Guess I'll go back to an AndroidWear device.
  15. Deadbolt locked but iris doesn't know

    Same thing for my garage doors. Neither open nor closed is greyed out. Look through camera and fortunately it's shut.
