    Iris web portal V1.3.1

    I'm not sure how accurate the reporting is from the hub. My 4G has gone from 3-5 bars to 0-1 bar, ever since they "tuned" the local cell tower. However, even when the portal is reporting 0 signal, the hub successfully switches over to cellular if the internet goes out. Storms took internet out last week for 3 days, and I don't think I ever lost hub connection even though I was getting "0" as to signal strength.

    Camera Infrared Settings

    Yeah, they definitely did something funky with the cameras. One of mine (a Gen 1 outdoor camera) started recording upside-down right after I updated the app. Thankfully the app provides a switch to turn it 180 degrees.

    Connected Bulb Experience

    Good reasons.

    lowes sale

    I'd snap up the motion sensors and make some money on eBay!

    Connected Bulb Experience

    Otto: I have 3 different types of Sylvania smart bulbs on Iris. One of them is the dimmable bulb you posted. I had initial trouble with several of the Osram bulbs. However, they've all been completely stable for the past 5 months. I recommend getting the Osram Lightify hub (eBay - $17) and updating the bulbs through it. Once I did that, I had stable bulbs that did what Iris told them to do. Here's a string that might be helpful:

    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    I still have one installed. Although it is listed as an unknown device, it still has the complete product information (Lowes item #, model # and Iris brand ID and device name) in the Product Information section. Since my Zigbee network has always been stable with it installed, I decided to leave it be.

    Hub Replacement Automation

    I was carrying mine around tonight to pair a new switch. I almost dropped it and could just see days of rebuilding ahead. There seems no reason why they couldn't flash the system data to a new hub.

    Batteries Depleting Rapidly

    Several of my motion sensors seem to be depleting rapidly. I've also had that start happening with one of my CT101 thermostats that I use for crawl space humidity sensors. It is going through a set of batteries almost every month. They seem to have very limited range though, and I wonder if being on the edge of the signal works the batteries more.

    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    Good idea. I would love to put my Blueline back into my main system.

    GE In-wall Switches Dropped Off Network All At Once

    Yes, you did! I never could figure out why yours were so unstable. Glad to hear you solved it.

    Don't Throw Away Your Old Devices

    Your memo presents an interesting option, with robust local processing as an obvious advantage. Iris has indicated that the cameras are the biggest challenge to their system. Would you plan for your system to provide for a functional video equivalent?

    The portal is showing out of sight energy usage

    Well, he got me. I checked my list and was only cranking 50 watts.

    New iOS app 2.9.2

    You are right - live view is working well. Another thing they've fixed in the last few updates was how the Clips list would go back to the top every time I deleted a recording. Now it stays at the same place as the deleted clip.

    New iOS app 2.9.2

    Yeah, with the same list of improvements as the last version. I've not seen a difference since updating. Anyone noticed a change?

    Avi-on . . . the un-IRIS

    I now have 8 or 9 of the Avi-on products installed, and every night they do exactly what I've programmed them to do. With those units spread around the house, the Bluetooth "repeater" network is robust. Although it would be nice to have a Remote Access Bridge (especially since it will now integrate with Alexa), I can't find them for less than $100, and I just don't have that much need for remote access for what are essentially lights scheduled to look like the house has people in it even when it doesn't.
