  1. Iris update causes the Gillion's portal to fail

    My cameras are not working with portal but they are on the iPhone App?
  2. Is there a way to change the colors of light bulbs or switches simultaneously rather than having to select each strip or bulb? I know it can be done using Alexa. Can the Iris app be set to do it? Thanks!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Smart + 3 LED Flex Light Strip

    Thanks a lot Terk, yeah I ended up ordering that one, actually the same one but about $10 cheaper right after I posted. I’m hoping that the strip lights from the kit I have now will work with the new kit because I installed some of the lights already. Does anyone know by chance? Thanks again Terk!

  5. I was looking in the pairing device list in the app and saw Smart + Light Strips. I ordered what I thought was right and now I don’t think they will work. Can someone verify this please? Thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hey it works!!!!! I have the Osram lights in my living room. They are all under the scene Living Room. I said, Alexa, Change Living Room Lights To Red and they all changed. Very Nice!!! Thanks GraemeCracker!!!
  7. Great idea, thanks Scunny!
  8. Well it’s been about a week and everything is still connected! Covers are still off. Going out this weekend to get plastic ones. I would say this one has been solved! Thank You everyone!!!!!!
  9. So I ended up having to remove all the GE light switches. I also needed to use the z-wave removal tool and it was a real pain! I had to keep switching the lights on and off and the word switch would come up. You have to keep doing this until the word switch no longer comes up. I also performed resets on the switches and did Hub resets. Not sure if that’s needed or not but I was having a heck of a time getting the system to let go of the switches. In the end as I said, I just kept switching the switch on and off while in the z-wave removal tool. If it just won’t release, try getting out of the tool and reset the hub and also the switch and try again, eventually you will get it to release. The reason I knew it wasn’t released is because when I removed the switch, I couldn’t add it back. If you are unable to add a device, it could mean that the device was not removed/released from the hub even though it’s not showing in your device list. This is when you have to goto the z-wave removal tool. This I imagine is only for z-wave devices. anyway, everything is working now. I have the switch plate covers off and will see if the switches disconnect. I will let you guys know. Thank you all!!!
  10. Ok Thank You Vettester. Just so I have this straight; the two gen 2 Smart Plugs I have act as z-wave repeaters even though they are zigbee units?
  11. Now the weird thing is with the plates off it’s showing them connected but I can’t control the switches with the app! trying to figure it out now.
  12. Well I have to apologize guys!!!!! The dam covered are metal as well!!!! I though they were plastic! I just took them off and I going to see how long they stay connected.
  13. If I can’t get it worked out after Vettster reply’s I might try this. Thanks Scunny!
  14. Hey Vettster, I have 7 z-wave devises: 3 GE Switches, 1 Siren, 1 Water Sensor in basement, and 2 Thermostats which also give me trouble from time to time. I have 2 second Gen Smart Plugs and 2 first gen. I just noticed that the smart plugs are zigbee; are there Smart Plugs that are z-wave that I need to purchase or do the zigbee Smart Switches still help with the z-wave network? are the old first gen zwave Smart Plugs causing a problem possibly? Thank You!!!
  15. I just watched the switches disconnect. I have two that are in the same junction box and one on the other side of the house. One of the two in the same junction box disconnected, a minute later the other one in that box disconnected, and then about two minutes later the one one the other side of the house disconnected. Does that give any clue on what’s going on? still have to figure this mesh software out.
