    Well it was fun

    I'm in the same boat. I've recently installed HomeAssistant on Raspberry Pi and picked up a few Z-wave devices to play around with. I like it so far. I really like the flexibility of creating your own rules. It'll be a while before I move everything over and get rid of Iris. I think getting rid of the cloud and having a wider range of supported products is nice. I should be able to add the Zigbee devices as I go after I get a Zigbee controller stick. Iris has been rock solid for me for at least 18 months now and it'll be tough to convince the wife to get rid of it.

    iOS 2.8 is Now Available

    Nevermind... it's there now. Needed to refresh the App Store app manually.

    I only have 2.6 and the latest version is not showing up for me in the App Store?

    New models for Iris components??

    I've noticed on Lowes website there are a few items listed that have new model numbers. For example, the old (current) motion sensor has 3326-L for the model and the new one says 3326-L2. Anyone know if there are any significant differences? They look the same other than the 4 button fob.
  5. I had a contact sensor disconnect on me so I removed the battery and reinstalled it. It reconnected, but now it constantly flashes all sorts of colors (pink, blue, purple). I did this a few days ago and it still continues to do this. Can anyone tell me what this means? It stays connected and appears to be working correctly. Moving the hub a bit closer seems to have corrected the disconnecting issue. I'm just concerned that maybe the sensor is trying to tell me something.

    My iris grade is...

    B I never had V1 so no parity and migration issues here. It does everything I want at the moment.

    Iris web portal V1.3.1

    Oh I love the irisstatus.org page and I think it's very helpful. No complaints. No need to code my own if I'm happy with what's there.

    Iris web portal V1.3.1

    All you gotta do is code your own portal and you can have it do the conversion for you.

    One motion sensor, 3 rules

    Yeah I actually have this setup for a siren outside. If someone walks up my driveway near the garage, the WIFI switch is hooked up to a 12V siren and it goes off. It would be nice to simply disable that rule instead of screwing with the schedule or removing the rule altogether.

    One motion sensor, 3 rules

    I think I may be doing something wrong. I have 1 motion sensor and 3 rules associated with it... Rule #1 sends me a push notification when it senses motion. It is scheduled to be always active. Rule #2 is exactly the same except it sends my wife a push notification. Rule #3 turns on a smart switch when that same sensor sees motion. It is active from 12am to 6am. The problem is that Iris always turns on the smart switch and ignores the schedule for Rule #3. Any ideas?

    One motion sensor, 3 rules

    Yeah that finally dawned on me this morning when I looked and the box was unchecked. Which means it is inactive. I guess I can always stay up until 12am tonight and make sure it gets checked and becomes active. I was thinking that the check was for whether I wanted the rule to be used at all (i.e allowing the rule to be used or not). Thanks for the help.

    One motion sensor, 3 rules

    OK. That makes sense I guess. Seems like a weird implementation. One would think that the time would be noted when the rule is created or the box is checked to determine whether the rule should be active at that point in time. I guess I'll find out. Thanks.

    Iris web portal V1.3.1

    History working fine for me on the "Homepage" using Chrome. And I get the last few entries on the history icon of the sensors page.
  14. Has anyone tried to convert/modify any of the sensors to use different batteries? I know it wouldn't be pretty. But if looks and size weren't an issue, it'd be nice to have more battery life. For example 2 AA batteries would yield 3V and have a much larger mAh rating versus a single CR2 battery. I'm talking mostly about the V2 motion sensor. A contact sensor on a window or door might be tough.

    Is it possible to put the hub battery level on the Battery Level page? I see mine is at 53 and it'd be nice to see that with the other devices.

    Hide picture on dashboard

    Is there a way to hide the picture on the dashboard? I'd rather have the screen room versus seeing a pic of my house. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Scene Schedule

    Sounds like you would always need to schedule the alarm to disarm at 4:59 and then re-arm at 5pm.

    Alarm smart panel

    Yeah we have the keypad. Works good if you are in a pinch but I'd rather have something I bit more functional.

    Alarm smart panel

    I'd like to have a smart panel (like other systems have) that can stay on and show Iris alarm status and such. Also allow arm/disarm the alarm from there. Or turn lights on/off. Anyone set up an old (or new) android tablet that will work as a smart panel? It'd be nice to have something like that set up in the main living space. Sometimes my kids get up in the morning and it'd be nice if they didn't have to login to the app just to see if the alarm is armed so they can let the dog out or whatever.

    Osram RGBW Bulbs

    I've found the Menards version works the same so far. Have one on the front porch and a lamp post in the yard. So far so good. Regular price is cheaper than Lowes I think.
