  1. Honestly, as shaky as the introduction to v2 was, I'm glad I decided to stick it out. The Iris system is maturing and becoming a stable and effective system (again). Now, if we can just get the system to work 'stand alone' like it use to....
  2. New Iris Pro Monitoring Email

    I have pro monitoring set up in the mountain house, NW NC - in Alleghany County. Added the cellular modem this past weekend.
  3. This makes me glad I stuck with Iris though the 'troubling' times, now if we can do something about the constant internet connection... all in all, it's good news
  4. Deadbolt locked but iris doesn't know

    I've had the same thing going on with the Kwikset locks, but to be honest with you I think I have the away scene set to lock the doors when the last one leaves - without really specifying not to if they are already locked. I'll have to check and see, but honestly I haven't really worried about it.
  5. Iris Version 2.1 is Available for iOS and Android

    This update is actually working great. I'm impressed almost as much as I am surprised actually. For me it seems that the 'update brings all kinds of troubles' days are behind me.... Things are looking up.
  6. Kwikset 910 z-wave constant disconnect

    Interestingly enough, the KwikSet 910 locks I have installed have pretty much worked flawless since day one. The only issue I had was quite some time back trying to get the contacts PIN code to download successfully. It took several tries but eventually they all showed up. I've had the locks in place for months - probably the better part of a year and have had zero issues. Ironically the only real dropouts I have had to deal with have been the GE outlets but (knock on wood) they too seem stable now. If history is any lesson - since I've just bragged on the system, I have just jinxed the damn thing - starting in the next few hours the system is going to start crapping out....
  7. System Down?

    why should we ultimately have to turn to this forum in order to find out the status of Iris? I'm really kicking myself for going with iris at times, I've invested a lot of money and it's not doing near what it could a year ago...
  8. Anyone else having issues around 4 pm Eastern?

    Also have missing items on BOTH accounts... Door Locks, 2gen Smart Switches, 1st gen Door Switches. One account is basically useless, other one is crippled to say the least. Thoroughly disappointed - once again - with Iris.
  9. Sad that this happened to begin with, but here it is what 4 days later and nothing...
  10. No issues for over a month or more now?

    Wish I could say that... Mine is still having issues with some v1 contacts, and the GE outlets... But then the firmware update was about a week ago... that always seems to cause issues.
  11. iOS Login Issues

    I've seen the same login issues as described and also have noticed when I just close the app entirely and restart it it does in fact come up with me logged in. This has been going on for a while, several versions of the app as well as multiple versions of IOS. FWIW, the Iris App is the only app that I have seen this kind of issue with.
  12. Current Rating...

    Honestly, it's still a toy. It may well be a more refined toy than it was when v2 initially rolled out, it's still a toy. Until such time that off-line processing becomes a reality it cannot and should not ever be considered for a security or even a realistic automation platform.
  13. 1.12.1 is in the iOS app store

    well, I can tell you what they didn't fix.. the connect/disconnect of devices... again......
  14. Kwikset Locks Battery Level

    Mine are showing Battery "OK" no percentage to speak of
  15. Back to Instability

    happens every time there's a firmware and/or app 'upgrade'
