    Moving on... Abode Alarm system

    Guys, Yesterday My Abode alarm system came in the mail and I was very impress how easy it was to hook up the system. At this time I just have the starter kit and I purchased some extra contacts and extra KeyFob's. To pair the items was super fast and I was impress how fast this happen. I even moved the hub with two walls in the home, so you will not even see the hub if you walk between the two rooms. Out of site out of mind. It was nice chatting with some of the members hear throw out the years from version 1 and version 2. The Iris hub is now in the trash The main reason I went with Abode is you have many options of monitoring which I like, Good luck and I might see some of you guys on the other side of the fence.

    Anybody got their pre-paid Visa card from Lowe's?

    I received mine last week but I didn't notice it will a week later because I missed the mail guy and card they left me was sitting at the bottom of the mail box. I spend my card today on another system on-line.

    wife getting her wish

    Your correct, I don't think Smartthings is the direction for security. I sold all my Iris cameras about a year ago and picked up an 8 camera setup that works great and it has 1080p and works great. I been reviewing the adobe alarm system for security. It has many options to monitor the home which I like.

    wife getting her wish

    Guys, My wife was right from the start, she complained about this security system from day one and now she is getting her wish. Moving to another system. She told me that Iris wasn't going to last, she complained about how the system was too buggy and every time the system failed she had to stop what she was doing and tell me about it. This was one of the major problems I had at times, especially the camera system and I was glad I sold the camera I had, I replaced with a nice dvr system and it hits on all cyclinders every time. I knew it was going to fail once I seen the displays in my local store from going from a large wall and displays in the store and a 3 x 3 foot empty pegs section with nothing on it. Good luck to the uses here that supported this system and I will be moving on myself.

    After some reviews I don't think I will be going to smartthing. The grass is not so green on the other side.

    This is why I will do more research before I jump ship to another problem child.

    yes... The keypad and trying to disable it, my wife went nuts... I would find that my wife wouldn't set the alarm just because she didn't want to deal with the keypad. At the time she didn't have a smart phone, which she has now. Plus the beeps for no meaning at night time when we were in bed. I am thinking about using Smartthing hub, I hope to do some research before I jump on the bandwagon. I hope the Smartthing device works great for you.
  8. I have two used Outdoor Wifi Camera's forsale, Model # OC821. They come with power supply. Nothing is wrong with them, I just upgraded to a new system have have no need to use these anymore. I would like $ 40 each plus shipping. Please PM me.

    Lowes Dumping IRIS for Google Home?

    I went to my local Lowes yesterday to pick up a tool chest and passed by the Iris display and they had no hardware, nothing on the display. They just had small display cards showing version 2 hubs. They had zero, nothing on the shelf on the. They didn't even had the hub's on display. Looks like the store isn't doing anything within this section. It is hard to believe they have zero hardware. I can tell you I haven't purchase anything for the Iris alarm when they drop V1. I told my wife I am not sure how long I will keep this system. I hate to start over with another system and losing my investment in the system I have now. Needless to say I ended up going to Home Depot picking up a tool chest from them.

    Alarm went off

    Last night my keypad started beeping in the middle of the night twice and then a few minutes later the alarm went off. My shop contact set off the alarm in the middle of the night. The door was still locked and was not open. Long story short was my wife was pissed off. I have seen the keypad just start beeping maybe once in a while a few times but the alarm just go off in the middle of the night. From what I can tell from the alarm log is the door contact drop the connection and I didn't know because it was in the middle of the night, the alarm was set and after the door contact re-connected and then the alarm went off. I guess the alarm notice something changed. I wasn't happy I had to check my shop door in the middle of the night. My wife hates this alarm, she calls it stupid. I am about at the end of my rope with this alarm system.

    Alarm went off

    The contact sensor wasn't bypassed, The alarm was set by the keypad and they batter is about 84% from that I can tell. The sensor is about 30 feet away. This sensor from I can tell has never drop the connection. Then if if the contact sensor didn't cause the alarm to go off, then I have no clue why, we were is the bedroom.

    Advanced Camera Settings

    I did make the change and press save. I wanted to see if it save the setting and I double click it again and I guess it defaults to it's setting and not what you saved it as?

    Advanced Camera Settings

    Cool, I notice if I try and change the setting and press save or reboot camera, it goes back to the original setting.I guess you can't change the default?

    Official Iris Community Launch

    I hope this site will stay up, I don't know who pay's the bill.

    Iris Web UI Preview

    Designing a new website from the ground up does take a lot of time and it is too hard to set a date and because if you rush it, it will be full of bugs and you don't want that. We have too many bugs on the devices we control at in our hands now. I have been in this business for many years in web designs and I have seen problems when you rush things... I too want the website to work, but on the other hand, I want it to have a good design, a good flow, bug free and mostly secure.

    Cutting the cable

    The only problem I see is with Directv is with the weather bad, you lose TV signal.

    The Grass Wasn't Greener

    I am looking to jump ship maybe to ST hub, I am sure they will be on sale. I think I saw the hubs were $ 50 off. Does the door switches work? Please let us know if the Iris cameras work if you find out any info.

    Anyone else having issues around 4 pm Eastern?

    Today around noon CST, I had problems setting my alarm, The V1 keypad didn't want to do anything, I tried a few times to set the alarm and nothing, it was like the keypad went crazy and didn't want to do anything. Then I tried with the iOS app, it started with no problems, but I when I press alarm on the main menu it did nothing. Nothing showed off line. It took a few times, after 3 times I was able to set the alarm with the app.

    Hub Off Line

    For some reason I had to unplug the router, strange thing is my TV's were streaming over the internet with no problem, plus my office computer was working fine and my cameras for my 3rd party software wasn't having any problems, just the hub.
