  1. I know this wasn't the intended purpose of the buy back program but would it make sense for people to swap out older V1 devices for V2 that are supposed to work on other platforms? Just wondering if I should swap out door sensors and motion to the new ones so if I leave Iris and this program is over at least I have a chance of the devices working on another platform.

    Has anyone got V2 to actually work?

    I don't have much money into my system but I am making a point to only buy things that are not locked to Iris. This way if I go to Wink, Smart Things etc the majority of my stuff will move. But with that said so far the system has been fairly stable for me but I am less than enthusiastic about their support. Several times I have had issues, sent emails and never hear back. I am OK with it taking a day or two but never hearing back is just sad.

    Which water leak detector?

    Might want to check out HD for leaksmart sensors... according to Slickdeals these were getting closed out at $18

    Trouble pairing Leaksmart shutoff

    Probably did come from HD and they recently had a deal on these for $73 & $18 for sensors. http://slickdeals.net/f/8926287-ymmv-leaksmart-3-4-in-smart-water-valve-73-00-sensor-18-00-in-store?src=SiteSearchV2Algo1
  5. So I am trying to get my leaksmart shutoff valve paired but nothing happens. I have seen other threads were people mentioned that it didn't pair with full functionality but I am not even getting that far. Any ideas on what I could try? I did have the valve controller within inches of the hub so I don't think it could be a signal issue.

    No, just the valve and sensor in the box. But since you mentioned that this was unusual I checked the box. It does say the sensor is included but it also says Wink! Ha ha didn't even notice that until you made me more inquisitive

    Got it from a friend...not sure I will have to ask. I just assumed they came together since it sits neatly in the bottom of the box.

    Trouble pairing Leaksmart shutoff

    I was trying to pair the leaksmart water sensor that came with the valve. I thought it would connect automatically too but after a bunch of attempts I got no where. Turned out the 5th time I tried to do a device reset on the sensor it took and connected. Once connected Iris saw it as a leaksmart sensor. But OMG I never soiled myself when I went to test this. I was only expecting the valve next to me to close, not have the alarm go off with phones ringing etc. Well at least it works...thanks for the help. Hmm just noticed it says the sensor is uncertified. Guess it doesn't matter since it works but that is strange.

    Thanks have valve paired but where do you select the water sensors to pair? Under leaksmart they only list the valve and under water it lists sensors but not leaksmart. So bizarre. I confirmed the device is working by wetting my finger and putting it across the tabs, within seconds it starts beeping. Also it is blinking 4 or 5 times every minute, I don't see this code listed int eh documentation. Anyone know what it is?

    Does V2 keypad have IR source?

    I noticed the other night that if I viewed my one D-Link cam at night I see a flashing light somewhere on the keypad but visually I see nothing. It is nearly constant and doesn't seem to ever time out. So first question, is this related to detecting presence? Could this be what is causing these to be going through batteries faster than V1 keypads?

    Does V2 keypad have IR source?

    But aren't presence sensors usually capacitance type? Even if this isn't capacitance how would emitting a light source help it determine if something is near? I have other presence sensors that don't do this flashing.

    Bleeping when setting alarm

    I haven't had a chance to mess with it but mine is doing different things as well. When I arm the system I get a beeping sound that gets progressively faster until the unit arms, before it just beeped when it armed. I hope this means the same for when you come into the house and it arms. In the past we had a barely audible beep from the hub only and it never changed it frequency so you had no idea how much time was left.

    Control Iris using Amazon Echo

    Ha ha..right now I am reading the forum with Bob the Builder in the background.

    Control Iris using Amazon Echo

    I think the Alexa integration is cool so long as they don't allow you to disarm you alarm via voice control. Would suck if anyone could walk in and turn it off.

    New HVAC system. Recommended Thermostat

    2nd Ecobee. Really great device. I really like the remote sensors and having the ability to use them for different comfort settings.
  16. Due to the recent news that they will discontinue all support for V1 I decided to take the plunge and move to V2. At first things went well and I decided to add some devices to make things work even better, like keypads and switches. First problem I had was the switch, it constantly loses its connection and it is almost directly above the hub one floor up. But equally as annoying is that it won't keep a custom name. So far tech support hasn't been much help so I am holding off installing the other switches until they figure this out. Then over the weekend I noticed my keypad was no longer connected. And not just offline it was completely removed from the app. I see no signs of it being removed in the logs and when I tried to repair it nothing happened. So at this point I am less than impressed with this "upgrade." Then I am reading around this forum and was shocked to find that this hub doesn't have local processing...WTF? I just bought a Leak Smart shutoff valve, but what is the point if I could still flood my home if the power or internet is out? Why even bother to have battery back up for these devices if they are going to be completely useless in a power failure? I guess the saving grace is the valve is compatible with Wink but come on Iris....get this together. How does that make sense to not have safety and security processing local?
  17. Ugh...well the keypad is paired and seems to work but the app no longer reports battery or temp info. Any ideas? Also I had read in another thread that some people that had the GE dimmer naming issue was resolved with a recent update but mine has not. Again any input on what I could check? So far Iris tech support hasn't been too helpful.
  18. I just confirmed the valve fails in last position on power failure. So if it closes under battery and they die the valve remains closed. I think I will give Iris a little more time to work things out but the valve box clearly mentions Wink so that might be a viable option too.
  19. Check your allowable address range....I had a similar issue and realized I set up the router to only allow X number of IP's. What is really odd was the default setting somewhere in the Century Link router didn't release IP's even if the device was no longer connected, so I filled my list. So once I changed the range to X+20 it immediately connected.
  20. Well tonight I was able to get the keypad repaired with the hub. Still not sure what to do with this system without local processing. But has anyone with the leak smart valve considered running the old hub too? Honestly I don't need remote capability but I do need it to be able to shut off if power goes out. So wouldn't the old hub still accomplish this? Also does anyone know what the fail safe mode is of the valve? I am assuming normally open since it is open in the box unpowered, if so how long can batteries hold the valve shut?

    offline devices are forgotten by Iris?

    This weekend I noticed I lost my Keypad but this device has never had issues with disconnecting. But I do have a GE switch that frequently goes offline and that still shows as a device so I don't know if this has anything to do with the device going offline. Looking through my logs I saw nothing about this keypad dissapearing but constant logs of the switch dis/connecting.
