  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. Iris update causes the Gillion's portal to fail

    Please do as scunny suggests. Even if you don't post a comment, please "Kudo" Gillion's original post. The Iris folks often don't pay attention to posts/requests unless they have been kudo'd at least 20 times.
  4. schlage touchscreen deadbolt function issue

    Schlage deadbolts are finicky about notifying Iris of its status. This has long been recognized by Iris, and apparently much time was spent on it to no avail. Here's a thread from almost a year ago: I routinely receive notifications of a change in status several hours after I've actually locked or unlocked the door. The development team assigned someone to solve my problem in mid-2017. We talked and tested for months, but they must have abandoned the attempt to fix it because it is no better and I don't hear from the "Schlage team" any more.
  5. Opinions: how reliable is IRIS for security?

    I've found the system itself to be pretty reliable in regard to security. It's the monitoring service that worries me. See this post for a description of my experience: Even thought I posted over a month ago, I've never received a response from an Iris representative in the community forum. When I raised the issue with a Development Team member this week, he apologized profusely and said he would send the report up the chain again. He did say that I posted in a part of the community forum that may not be monitored as closely now that Professional Monitoring is up and running (It was an invitation-only section for early adopters of the service). I don't take much comfort in that, and still haven't heard anything back from my phone inquiries either. I'd at least like to be told that the third-party monitoring service was made aware of their failure that night, and that more resources are being added to that service's phone staff.
  6. V1 Motion Sensors for $12

    Thanks for the tip. I got one for the same price. I wonder why these are getting put out now? They are clearly old stock -- the package has the old logo/1st gen hub pictured, and the battery was dated 7/13.
  7. Appears that iris has no presence at CES again

    On a related topic, an Iris Community Manager finally posted a response to a post started many months ago (July) in the Community Forum entitled "Is Iris going to be around much longer?": "Hi, Short of something unforseen involving zombies or perhaps a large asterioid, the end is most certainly not nigh for Iris. It is disappointing that your local Lowe's store's Iris display was not up to your (and our) expectations; we work with our stores to try to make sure your shopping experience is as good as it can be, and it sounds like this wasn't the case for you, which we will look into. In 2017, the Iris team added support for dozens of new devices, released an enhanced web user experience, introduced a reamped Security system and introduced Professional Monitoring, and shipped dozens of smaller features and fixes. Our 2018 plans are just as packed and we will continue enhancing and growing the Iris platform and ecosystem. Thank you for being an Iris customer and for posting here. Customers like you are why we do what we do. Happy New Year to you and your family! -Mike"
  8. V1 Motion Sensors for $12

    Thanks sparc -- I'll be checking tomorrow!
  9. GE Devices Having Trouble

    I've had that weirdness happen, too. Tech Support is just going to have you remove and re-pair. If you give it some more time before calling them, you may find that every one of your devices comes back on-line without having to do the removal. Preferable, especially if you have Rules, Scenes and Schedules related to the devices.
  10. Light brightness on motion

    Then instead of scheduling an automatic full brightness in the morning, you could just manually turn the brightness back up when you first get up. Then the motion sensor will turn them on at that brightness until your evening Scene kicks back in.
  11. Cellular back-up service provider

    For the last four days, my cellular modem signal has been at 1 or 0 when it normally is at 3-5. Iris Tier 1 tells me that Tracfone is the provider and that I need to talk to them. Tracfone tells me they don't know what I'm talking about. Has anyone been able to make contact with someone who takes responsibility for the signal? Thanks.
  12. Merry Christmas!!!

    Thanks Vett! . . . I just sent that to my wife to let her know I'm not the only one.
  13. Iris web portal V1.3.1

    It's back up for me too.
  14. Iris web portal V1.3.1

    I'm getting this message when trying to access the portal: "This page ( is currently offline."
  15. Disconcerting Performance from Monitoring Service

    So with Vett's encouragement, I did. Crickets.
