  1. *Any* light bulbs with 99% reliability?

    I'm not sure--I didn't notice that I had one with a different SKU until after I'd taken them all out of their packages. It reconnected after I turned off power at the switch for a minute and turned it back on. Not a big deal, I guess, but I'll be annoyed if this happens while I'm out of town.

    Ha! I jinxed it. One has gone offline. It's four feet beside another one. I swear.
  3. *Any* light bulbs with 99% reliability?

    Just reporting back in: I've had the Sylvania Osram bulbs in my four porch lights for a few weeks now, no problems. At first, I had one that didn't stayed paired, so I reset it, and no problems since. I had exactly the same situation as woofboy--I happened to look at my receipt a few days after the purchase and realized that one of them had the different SKU. I don't know if it's the one that I had to reset or not. In any case, they're all working just fine now.
  4. Slide menu android app

    I thought maybe I was just remembering this wrong. Yes. Hope they bring this back.
  5. On several screens, I cannot scroll down to see what's supposed to be at the bottom of the screen. For example, on the "add" screen, I can't see the option for adding a scene, which (as I can see on my tablet) is at the bottom of the screen: Same thing happens after I add a device--I can't see "OK" or "Done" or whatever is supposed to be at the bottom of the screen to end the whole process. (I have to force stop the app--going back just gets me stuck in a loop). ZTE phone (but this was happening on my LG phone previously), running Android 5.1.1, android app version 1.8.
  6. What clever things do you do with Iris?

    Perfect. I just put a contact sensor on our basement freezer, which doesn't get closed all the way *at least* once every couple of months. (Bummed that the shortest duration before notification is 30 minutes--seems like I should be able to set that to whatever I want.) Need to think about the driveway idea ... Keep 'em coming!
  7. Everything is finally working, so I'm hesitant to change anything, but ... I get the feeling I'm way underutilizing Iris. I've got some basic stuff going: Security alarm and a couple of lights on a schedule. I'm not using any fobs or buttons, and when I've seen them for a good price, I've been tempted, but I couldn't really think what I'd do with them. I wish my thermostat was integrated, but we recently got new HVAC, and it came with a thermostat on Nexia, so that's automated, just through a different app. Home security is a priority, but more automation would be great, too. To the extent that it matters: We're me, wife, four preteen kids, two-car garage, pool. Anyway ... What are some other ideas? What's the cleverest thing you do with Iris? Where else can I read about good ideas?
  8. V2 keypads went silent

    yuri, you may have already seen this mentioned elsewhere, but just in case ... The same thing happened to me, but our batteries dying happened to coincide with a firmware update. When I reinstalled batteries, the keypads didn't make any sounds (just that faint clicking). Turns out the app's toggle for keypad sounds had been set to off. Switching that back got everything back to normal (with no more misbehaving keypad lights, too).
  9. *Any* light bulbs with 99% reliability?

    Thanks, everyone. I'll give the Osram bulbs a shot.
  10. Has anyone had good luck with the V2 fob?

    I'm really curious: What do you use these for? i.e. Do they arm/disarm the alarm or something?
  11. *Any* light bulbs with 99% reliability?

    Re: those Osram lightify A19s, a Q&A at that link says they're both wifi and ZigBee (though the description just says wifi). True? And, if so, would they function as ZigBee signal repeaters, too, since they're not battery powered?
  12. I've been reading every thread I can find about light bulbs, including that Cree thread most recently, and I'm unable to figure out whether *any* bulbs out there will definitely (or almost definitely) work. I really want to get this figured out before going on vacation. So: Are there any bulbs that I can buy that will at-least-almost definitely work?
  13. Iris Survey

    Took it. I design surveys (among other things) for a living and found this one to be frustratingly designed in some aspects, but I'm very glad to be asked about this. I was asked to prioritize what I'd want to be able to do through the web portal. The simple answer is: Everything. (Why not?) I was also asked something about what I like and dislike about the app--perhaps this is less to improve the app than to inform the web portal design.
  14. New Device Firmware Downloading (Keypads)

    Mine came back with no sound, too, but it was the app. The toggle for "keypad sounds" was on "off."
  15. New Device Firmware Downloading (Keypads)

    To answer my own questions, yes, it appears that the lights-staying-on bug has been fixed.
