    GE/Jasco Z-wave outlets used outside?

    Perfect...that is what I was hoping to hear.
  2. I am looking to add a few new outlets around the exterior of my home and was planning on using the GE/Jasco outlets daisy chained off of a GFCI. They would be mounted in a weatherproof box with an in use cover. Has anyone else done something similar? I am not worried about them actually getting wet but I am concerned about humidity since the in use cover doesn't fully seal. I would rather not have the outdoor outlets plugged in since they are so bulky. Any thoughts?

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    The issue is with future firmware. If they stop updating the Gen 2 hub you may not get bugs fixes, new products or features. I am not saying it would be the case but I know of other devices (Obihai) that stopped working and the company basically told you to buy the new model. There are sometimes work arounds but when you are talking about your home security I need to know it is working. I hope they don't force the migration, but if they do I would likely head to a different platform.

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    Question for those that switched...can you confirm if they maintained local processing?

    Iris Portal Survey

    interesting data...and glad to see so many people filled it out. Seems like this is the type of data Iris should be trying to get from users so they can better understand what people want in the future.

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    Without a migration tool I would be hard pressed to stick with Iris. I am just too jealous of all the cool stuff my friends are doing with ST. If I have to spend time and more money to keep it running I think I would jump ship. The only hesitation I have is the large number of gen 1 products I currently have.

    Generic zigbee?

    So about a year ago I tried to pair a Quirky zigbee outlet and never had any luck. But since then I know they added some generic z-wave which I have been able to use so I dug out my old Quirky outlets hoing they might work now but I never got them to connect. So my question is did they ever create a generic zigbee profile?

    August Smart Lock Pro

    Just about two weeks in and all seems good with one exception. The history in Iris doesn't always report the unlock state, so it shows the open/close activities then locking but for some reason doesn't always catch the unlock. Going to the August app all of this data is present. Guessing this is an Iris thing but in all honesty I can live with that.

    Iris 3.0 (Yes, it exists)

    Wow, that is terrible news. Without a migration tool I would be going ST. I am especially concerned since the new devices I saw at a local store were wifi, so if this is their new push we might not get new devices either.

    August Smart Lock Pro

    Ended up removing the lock and repairing it. This time it shows as paired in the August app and in the Iris app. So I guess time will tell if it stays 100% functional or not but so far so good.
  11. Is anyone using one of these successfully with Iris? I had a gen 2 August lock but they provided me with a warranty replacement due to some issues I was having. When i got the replacement I realized it was the new Pro version that comes with zwave plus. I was able to add this to Iris and it shows up as an uncertified lock but it was functioning just fine to lock/unlock the door. Then it error'd out and said the lock was jammed. Now nothing works via Iris but the lock continues to operate fine through the August app and there has never been an indication of it being jammed. I may try removing it again and repairing it but wondering if anyone had any success. Just surprised it even has the ability to indicate a jam on an uncertified device. I would have thought it would just have basic functionality.

    Anyone notice that an app update is rolling out?

    My android app just updated. Notes mentioned support for new devices coming in the fall.
  13. I just picked up something like that from Home Depot today after seeing this thread. Might have to grab the decora style from Amazon at some point too.
  14. Interesting find...I have a ceiling fan that my son constantly uses the switch on rather than the remote. Maybe I should get a few of these just to have around. Also interested how those are marketed; never even thought about a religious need for something like this.

    Utilitech GBS worth it?

    Was at my local Lowe's and saw 2 GBS for 10 bucks. I figured they might be a good addition but many of the reviews I read were not that great. Since most robberies in the area don't involve breaking windows (usually just kick door in) I am wondering if these are worth the hassle. Or are many of the bad reviews due to gen 2 growing pains and ST,wink etc integration? What are your experiences?
