    My migration experience from Iris to Hubitat

    My Hubitat is on the way! I keep getting these moments of Deja-Vu as I read up on the Hubitat community. So many ideas I threw at Iris are available on Hubitat. Feels like the guy reviewing the wish list at Iris works for Hubitat. I dread getting 90+devices and 164 rules over to the new platform, but am excited for the benefits I wished for.

    My migration experience from Iris to Hubitat

    I asked Iris to use 2 hubs for hard to reach areas. Titled the thread 2 hubs 1 cup. A little dirty humor, but still a great idea. Glad someone decided to implement it.

    Logitech Harmony Smart Control and Alexa

    Multi-room Harmony? I have a Logitech Harmony hub in the front room with Ifttt & Alexa and I have a detached studio that I would like another setup of another Harmony hub and Alexa. Im not sure if 2 Harmonys will work..... without having a separate Alexa account for each, or if 2 Alexa accounts would work with one Iris hub.... or maybe with google home in the studio so it doesnt cross reference commands with Alexa in the front room????? Or adding wireless ir extenders using the one harmony hub.... Anyone have any advice?

    Iris vs SmartThings

    I use both ST and Iris. I think multiple hubs is the way its gonna be. I don't think one Hub will ever do it all. Using Amazons Alexa and Logitech Hub as well. off topic...It would be nice if we could get virtual switches that would link commands between hubs through IFTTT or something...for instance a Rule in Iris to send command to IFTTT to send command to ST to activate a device that only works on ST. and vice versa. I got ST because of early Iris issues, and have stuck with Iris due to v1 product for most of my Smart home. I use ST for GE wink a19 bulbs that dont work with Iris and for when my Iris deletes my entire hub leaving me without a way to unlock my doors!

    Osram bulb experience?

    I have 3 Osrams bulbs out of around 7 that generally lose connection every couple days having power to be flicked off and back on to reconnect. Seems to be only A19 and flood lamps, the Recessed Can lights have been great. I also bought the color changing demo light from the Lowes display for $7, but it appears to only do what it was programmed to do....constantly change color with no way to adjust! LOL, maybe I will try to reflash it with ST or the Osram hub as suggested....

    EMI interference from LED bulbs

    I bought the cheap LED work bulbs and determined they leaked causing interference on the AM radio and onto the LCD display for my Lorex cctv system. It would cause the Lorex DVR to reboot everyday as well. Replaced all the LED work lights and problems were solved! A good way to find interference is to walk your home with an AM radio.

    Iris 2.7 email

    I got the notification, but before I reinstalled the smartthings arrival sensors due to the lag in the iris v2 fob they replaced them with, another issue.... but if I cant get local processing due to uncertified devices, I dont know what I will do. I love my ST arrival sensors but need local processing....
  8. TW, did you ever get this resolved? My hub double deleted every device as well yesterday. 50+ devices. After resetting and repairing the "doors and locks" card shows NOTHING like your lights card.

    My iris grade is...

    B- , Missing Offline Processing and temp graphs. Disappointed with lack of Smartthings product integration, Iris team quits when they get stumped and abandon instead of repairing products once on the "certified" list. A lack of aftermarket products not approved such as a better doorbell, Remotec Z-Wave ZXT-120 IR Extender for Air Conditioners or bluetooth speakers.

    Iris+ Future and Roadmap

    Thanks for all you have done Yuriypgh. Its too bad Iris turned out to be a bunch of lying and shenanigans, I too have started the transition to Smartthings. If I can only find a good deal to replace my v1 stuff with v2s I can completely cut ties. After 7 pet doors and constant lies about parity, its time to move on.

    So I got the Pet Door...

    Another 2 pet doors bite the dust. The one that has worked since 8/14 stopped being able to close. New one they sent will not pair at all with Iris or Smartthings. 7 doors later.... still having issues. I cant blame Iris as it seems to be the Petsafe door tranmitting/receiving problem issues.

    No Local Hub Processing When Offline HUGE BUG/FLAW

    Tier 2 support called me about the petdoor ticket today, months later.....apologized for losing my ticket and comped a month service for the error. I asked him some questions about local processing while I had him on the line and he said "I just got out of a meeting earlier and its in the works, probably will be in the new year" I hope this is a good lead...sounds good anyway! Maybe local processing will be released on Xmas with as a Santa tracker update!

    Firmware updates

    Lost connection to zwave kwikset in the update, had to call in to get it back online. I have been informed they are still debating local processing. The website for Iris support updates has not been updated to reflect Oct.. Tier 1 does not have any new info for October, they said its mostly Iris's end system upgrades and a button to auto refresh z-wave networks rather than waiting. I am again met with disappointment that local processing is still partially on the table.....if what tech said is correct, its a let down.

    button to toggle siren

    I would like a rule to use a button to toggle the siren on and off. I would also like to be able to toggle on a seperate siren on/off outside for a few seconds if I see someone on the property via cameras so I dont have to go out myself. If the siren goes off while we are home I want an easy way to shut it up while I determine what triggered it. I had a button used as a panic and when tested, I could'nt get the siren to turn back off. A button to turn it on/off easily would be helpful.
