  1. WebCore is frowned upon by the Hubitat support team since it is a very process intensive app (SmartThings offloaded some of the code about a year or so ago to their server side to try to lessen the load on the SmartThings hubs where it is used) and can really stress the hub depending on how rules are configured. Rule Machine can do most of the same things WebCore can and both take some getting used to.
  2. Never mind I do get a time stamp (without seconds) its just tiny and in the upper left part of the frame not part of the picture so I thought it was BI5 doing it. And I cannot seem to change it to AM/PM instead of 24 hour time as the command errors out each time. http://192.168.23.196/adm/set_group.cgi?group=SYSTEM&time_format=12
  3. Yeah I get static with my clip playback now. Did you ever play around with the time_stamp option? I tried to set the camera to get its time from my BI server and tried adding the VIDEO&time_stamp=1 option but don't see a timestamp on the stream, trying to have a timestamp on the video but without having to use overlays in BI so I can turn on direct to disk. Thanks.
  4. I think it worked, I'm not home to make a noise to see how it sounds but after changing the video settings in BI like yours I get static when I crank the volume while watching the live feed were before it would be completely silent. Thanks.
  5. Thanks, I'll try that tonight.
  6. I ran this command on my Iris cameras ( /adm/set_group.cgi?group=AUDIO&audio_in=1 ) however I've not been able to get audio to stream through Blue Iris, do you remember the settings you used for this? I know it was a long time ago and you may not have any on your system anymore. I'm trying to setup my Iris cameras for my parents since they wanted some outdoor cameras. Thanks!

    Do You Miss Iris? and General BS Thread

    Yeah ST had the device health (red dot) and it worked pretty well the last few months, it took them at least 8 months to get it working right which is understandable since they integrate with about the same number of devices as Hubitat.

    Do You Miss Iris? and General BS Thread

    We use both the Hubitat app and Life 360 integration for our presence detection. We use the Combined Presence app to make a virtual out of the two so if one doesn't see us arrive but the other does it still disarms. The only problem is if one doesn't see us leave and the other does it doesn't arm. Lately they both have been very reliable but I'm on the iOS beta on my XS and my wife's on the Prod app on her 6s. Battery monitoring has been hit and miss with any of the home automation systems I've used including Iris, most of the issue there is the devices tend to put themselves to sleep to conserve battery so don't report unless something changes to wake the device up. I did find Iris's device health to be much more reliable and easier use than any of the others but I think that was because they supported so few devices they knew what info to look for on each to identify health. I've been using Device Monitor which was ported from ST I think, you have to add devices that check in frequently (devices that report temperature tend to work fairly well, although I have a few devices that only want to report temperature for a few days then quit and I haven't figured them out yet) though if you add a garage door controller but go on vacation for a week so it never opens/closes than it likely won't check-in at all so will show offline.

    Did you publish the app after saving it? If not click on the app in the IDE then "Publish" and "For Me". As long as the Smart App show Published for the Status in the IDE it should show up in the list of My Apps. Make sure in the IDE you only have one Location under My Locations, it's possible you have two (there was an issue a while back where ST would create a second location on its own which was confusing people) and your adding the app to the one your app doesn't use.

    Do you have any of the v2 keypads and smart plugs? I'd be interested in a few of each if you did. Thanks.

    Do You Miss Iris? and General BS Thread

    Iris was by far easier for what it could do than any of the others (of course they supported far less devices so device health worked great out of the box and scheduling most things was very easy), however it was very limited compared to many others (far less devices, very limited rule capabilities). I originally switched to ST since I had already had a v2 hub for a while then I switched almost everything to Hubitat for the local processing since ST has had so many cloud issues. The only things I haven't been able to port from ST are our robo vacuums just because the great Neato Connect app on ST hasn't been ported or another like it created for Hubitat yet. The only thing I like on ST more than Hubitat is the mobile app but @Vettester helped me figure out HomeBridge on rPI which is a great addition to Hubitat and since we have all Apple devices the Apple Home app works great as a mobile app.

    Device removal and resetting

    Most of the v1 hardware works with Hubitat.

    Nice, I didn’t think to look there, I tried to add a widget and was surprised not to be able to find one to add. The control center provides what I was looking for in a widget. Thanks

    I agree, this is the kind of app I wish they had come with. I think they have a great product and team, and if they could get the dashboards to rotate and scale proportionately I'd be happy with the dashboards most of the time. I do like the way the Home app rotates and keeps the icons arranged based on the ID your signed into so you only have to set it up on one device and it will look similar on all devices. I was concerned it would add latency but I click a light and it instantly turns on. I also like the ability to tell Siri to close the garage door and she does with the phone locked but if you tell her to open it she requires you to unlock the phone first for security, and the remote capabilities are nice, I don't have to VPN in before I can check on things.

    I got the temperatures excluded from my outside doors and windows and the contact status excluded from my dedicated temperature sensors. Everything looks great in the Home app now! Thanks!

    Oh, ok I kept trying the Hubitat Device Network ID and even the signee ID. Thanks.

    Turning off the HSM and Modes for one of the instances was easy, I couldn't figure out how to turn off the temperature items for each zigbee window and door sensor though, maybe I have to put in the exception than uncheck the object save and add it back in? I may have to try that later, for now I'm still trying to get it setup how I want it. Thanks for all the tips!.

    The issue with my first instance was an comma it didn't like after one of the } brackets. I love the web interface, being able to administer it all without even having to RDP in is great and I like the json error checking built into it although I wish it would point you to the issue instead of just saying there is an issue I guess I'll eventually get used to json's syntax and it will be easier to find my mistakes. Did you end up with three sets of HSM and Modes or is there a way to turn them off for an instance?

    Thanks, I had it all setup with the systemd services as well but riginally i thought that web interface was only for monitoring since it wasn't working but it was the json file all along that was the issue. Once I updated that it started up and is working fine at least for my second instance. There is still something preventing my first instance from starting homebride so I'll need to spend more time on that. Thanks for all the help! This interface is really nice so far, I just wish I could choose to hide some of the temperature devices but not all of them.

    It took a while there are a lot of moving parts, I`m not really comfortable with Linix and its tools, and I was having a hard time getting the config.json file right with the commas and brackets. I did manage to get it working enough to see commands execute instantly which is awesome and to start playing around with the interface. Can you stretch specific buttons to be able to read them better, like my modes? I set it up for the two directories and homebridge instances however when i run homebridge it was always complaining about a missing json file since it was looking in the /root/.homebridge/ folder instead of /var/lib/homebridge@1 and 2 so I only have 1 instance running from at the moment, not sure what i did wrong there. Also do you have yours starting homebridge automatically on a reboot, if so how did you set that up? Thanks!
  21. Looks like they finally shutdown the official Iris by Lowe's forum.

    Thanks that would be awesome if you have the time. I'm hoping to get started working on this on Friday night. It looks like a very nice interface. Thanks.

    @Vettester Do you have any information you can share on the components to get Hubitat and BI working through Homekit? I`d like to try this but have no experience with Raspberry PI or Homekit, even on the Hubitat side I see there are a few different Homebridge integrations which did you use? I should have a Raspberry PI 3B+ Thursday to start getting this setup. Thanks.

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    Yeah, what product are you referring to?

    It looks like the developer of the Ecobee suite has heard about this issue: https://community.hubitat.com/t/arrrgggh-here-be-zombies/15998
