  1. Nice...completely agree about your comments on how Lowe's handled this.

    SystronicsRF vs Hubitat

    Well the benefit of Hubitat or Systronics is everything is local. So even if they fold you still have a working ecosystem. Granted it might not grow and if a part fails you could be SOL, it won't be like Iris where the hub becomes a paper weight.

    March 31st - Doomsday?

    Me too. Iris saved me a huge mess tonight and highlighted how much I really loved this system.

    Thanks Iris!

    Well tonight my Iris system went off letting me know the stupid water softener overflowed again. So thank you again Iris...this could have been a huge mess. But this event highlighted how much I rely on Iris and the multiple notifications. I think I could have slept through the siren but for some reason the house phone ringing always seems to wake me up. So thanks again for possibly the last time.

    Phone call notification SOLVED!

    I personally relied on those calls. My phone is always on vibrate so often the short vibration for a text or email isn't enough to get my attention. But the persistent vibration did. I was using a Google voice number so it randomly several phones, this was super helpful for those water leaks I had in the middle of the night. No amount of vibrating on my nightstand would wake me..but the house phone does. Notifications were definitely a strong point for Iris.

    Phone call notification SOLVED!

    Performance sounds good but the price is a bit high. I was hoping to use something like this for self monitoring an alarm but that price gets professional monitoring. Would be nice if they offered a lower monthly fee or yearly with far fewer calls. Seems we don't know how good we had it with Iris but glad you found a solution that works for you.

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

    Both of mine arrived today. Luckily I got the alert the day before they were going to be delivered so my wife called and asked them to hold them so she could pick them up.

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

    I filed my claim the second day and still no notice of shipment or card magically showing up in the mail. Hope it comes soon!

    Alarms and SHM

    TXS for posting, I knew I saw this somewhere. Is there a monthly fee for this service? I seem to remember it being like $2-3/mo. If so that is well worth it to me. I prefer to self monitor and my phone is muted so i need a persistent vibration to get my attention. Also does it always use the same number?

    New Gear Thanks to Iris

    I have tried all sorts of wireless cameras and have never been happy. Either they chew through batteries fast or the battery saving features are slow to react at times to trigger videos. Add in terrible performance in the cold (battery) and I am not a fan. Maybe these are viable options in the southern states but not where it gets cold. I agree that PoE is where it is at. Running one wire isn't that bad and you can set it to record 24/7 so you never miss anything.

    Can't wait to get mine

    Visa Cards

    If I had something to bitch about with Lowe's it would be the fact they never really got behind Iris. I think if they had this would have been a money making division and they either would have kept it or easily sold it off. But once they made the decision to kill it I agree they went above and beyond what I would have expected.

    Well glad it is working for you now but all I did was click it. Kind of excited to get this card and get this tested out. I have so many Gen 1 devices I would love to keep using.
