    IRIS Being shut down by Lowe's??

    Since a buyer will probably update IRIS to a more up to date system they more than likely will not use the devices that solely depend on the IRIS platform. Lowe's should allow customers to return their products if they so choose. Lowe's will have no responsibility to us once a sale is completed and if the buyer makes V1 and other IRIS exclusive devices useless.

    IRIS Being shut down by Lowe's??

    Nov 20 (Reuters) - Lowe's Cos Inc said on Tuesday it was looking to shed its retail operations in Mexico and certain non-core U.S. businesses as the country's second-biggest home improvement chain strives to compete with rivals including Home Depot. Shares of the Mooresville, North Carolina-based company fell 5.3 percent to $86.50 in premarket trading after Lowe's also reported a smaller-than-expected rise in same-store sales. Under Marvin Ellison, Lowe's newly-appointed chief executive officer, the company has been streamlining its business by shutting underperforming stores and cutting back on slow moving inventory. The company has perennially lagged Home Depot Inc in same-store sales, despite having roughly the same number of stores. Lowe's said it was looking at all options for its chain of 13 stores in Mexico and that it was "exiting" its U.S. contracting services business Alacrity Renovation Services and security and smart home app Iris Smart Home. Couldn't find any news about whether it would be sold off or just shut down. Wonder if this is the end of IRIS and more importantly if it is where is my refund??? EDIT: I do see where it says smart home app. I wonder if they mean just the app, which I don't think so, or the whole IRIS program.
  3. So I read all the old threads and I am fine with wiring and the number of wires match the official video from GE. My concern is while following instructions to determine line and load using multi-meter the video says one switch should have current and one should not when testing the black screw and the ground. Both my switched are in the OFF position per instructions and they both show current. The video says one shouldn't show current. So is it me or is my wiring fubar? My situation is 2 switches control 1 light. Switches are approx 6 foot apart, one at entry from garage and the other around the corner from entry. I thought this would be a simple 3 way switch I could change out. I appreciate any advice and will wait before proceeding as I feel it's better to be safe than sorry. I can provide picture(s) if needed.

    Schlage 469 Deadbolt $139.99 on Amazon

    So I installed the first unit. Garage entry door no hole for deadbolt, metal door. I watched an 8 minute video that showed how to cut a hole in metal door and install a deadbolt. 4 hours later and a trip to Lowe's I got holes cut. My advice use the Dewalt door hole kit when cutting into. Once I got holes cut installation & setup of the lock only took 5 minutes. We love it. next will be the front door which already has a deadbolt.
