    Terk got a reaction from sparc in Iris 1st Gen Hardware Available   
    I agree I'm using a number of my old v1 hardware (mostly contact sensors but one button as well) on my parents Hubitat, in fact I was running that system offline for about 6 months with an Aeotec Gen 5 Doorbell loaded with a bunch of pre-made mp3 files for speech notifications and a variable in the user interface for text notifications with all automations and notifications for water leaks and doors left open working perfectly.  However since then they've gotten internet so they could get notifications when not at home as well.  The only v1 device I know doesn't work with Hubitat is the keypad.  All of the v2 and v3 devices do work as well as almost any zigbee/z-wave device that works with ST.

    Like the title says, I miss the activity, discussions and exchange of information that we used to have here.  I recognized all of the characters by their avatar and pretty much could predict how they would respond to certain posts.  I had moved on to SmartThings and then quickly to Hubitat and I am active on both of their respective forums but what we had here, is missing there.

    I have a few of the gen1 keypads sitting on a shelf hoping one day i could use them again not for their looks but they worked great until Iris went under.  As far as the cameras go i gave all of mine to my parents and configured them via the http put commands for use with Blue Iris, their serving them well so far, of course they have nowhere near the quality of night resolution of my Dahua Starlights but my Dad was happy with them for free.

    As the Iris videos for pairing and factory resetting devices have been removed, we have included them in our YouTube channel.
    We have uploaded about 90 videos.
    The playlists are organized by manufacturer, to reduce the number of thumbnails that are displayed:

    I don't care for any of the Hubitat dashboards so I use the Home+ 4 groups to provide a quick reference for battery levels so for me it is worth it. 
    Check this out....

    For anyone who is using iOS 13 check out what you can do with NFC tags.  The tags are fairly cheap (less than $1).  This opens up a ton of possibilities in the HA world.

    The keypad, and sensors should all work with Hubitat.  The cameras as @vettester said will work with Blue Iris which will integrate with Hubitat for profile (recording, alerting, settings) per mode.  Although I don't have any experience with the model you have I have the original Outdoor and Indoor models working on BI.

    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!

    Excluding the temperature for your contact sensors should be fairly simple.  First within the home app open the device you want to exclude and go into settings.  Scroll down to the bottom of the settings and you'll see a device serial number.

    Add this device number to the "excluded_attributes" section of your config.json file of the homebridge instance that contains the device along with the attribute you want to exclude.  From the example above your config.json file should look something like this:
    {
        "bridge": {
            "name": "Homebridge@2",
            "username": "AB:22:3D:E2:CE:32",
            "port": 51827,
            "pin": "033-44-255"
        },

    }
    Save the file then restart the homebridge instance and the temperature button for that device should be removed.

    You can disable the HSM and Modes in your second instance by modifying the config.json file.  Under the Hubitat-MakerAPI Platform section modify the following lines from true to false:
                "mode_switches": false,
                "hsm": false,
    Just keep in mind that you need to restart homebridge whenever you modify the cong.json file before the changes will take affect.
    You can also hide the temperature attributes by device.  You just need to add the device id and the attribute you want to exclude to the "excluded_attributes" section of your config.json file.
    Here's one of my config.json files as an example:
    {
        "bridge": {

    You cannot resize the buttons but you can rename them in the Home app to make them more readable. Just tap on the button and then go into settings and change the name.  The button is essentially a link so changing this has no effect on the name of the device in Hubitat.

    Did you create a separate config.json file for each instance and save it in the correct directory (/var/lib/homebridge@1 and /var/lib/homebridge@2)?
    All three of my instances of homebridge are configured to start automatically.  I did this by creating a systemd service.  This is outlined in steps 7 and 8 of the homebridge installation guide.

    Here you go...
    Install Raspian on your Raspberry Pi.  Since you're new to the pi world I would recommend using NOOBS.  Instructions can be found here After you've installed the OS the next thing you should install on your pi is remote desktop.  This give you the ability to run the pi headless so you can put it anywhere.  Even though you can enable wifi on your pi I would recommend connecting it directly to your router for reliability.  You can use this as a guide to install RDP on your pi.  From this point on you should be able to RDP into your pi so you can complete the rest of the steps on your computer. Add the built-in Maker API to Hubitat.  To accommodate the number of devices on my system I added 3 separate instances of Maker API and named them HomeBridge1, HomeBridge2 and HomeBridge3.  Install HomeBridge on your PI using this guide.  Install enough instances to accommodate the number of devices you want to include.  HomeBridge may create multiple instances of the same device depending on the device's capabilities/attributes so keep this in mind when you are deciding on how many instances to create.  You can exclude capabilities/attributes as needed.  You can always add additional instances later if needed. Install the HomeBridge MakerAPI plugin starting with step 2 at this link and setup your HomeBridge config with the appropriate app url and and access token.  Add the devices you want to include in Homekit using Maker API.  Keep in mind that you need to restart HomeBridge when you add or remove devices in Maker API. Add the Home app to your iOS device from the app store. Add the HomeBridge accessory to your Home app by scanning the HomeKit setup code created by HomeBridge. Adding Cameras
    Install the ffmpeg plugin for HomeBridge using sudo npm install -g homebridge-camera-ffmpeg Install IP camera plugin for HomeBridge using: sudo npm install -g homebridge-ip-camera Add the IP Camera platform to your HomeBridge config file.  You can use this link for a reference. I put this together from memory so I might have missed something.  If you get stuck or you need examples of my config files feel free to PM me. and I'll do what I can to help.

    RC is power for the cooling side RH or R in this case would be power to the heating side.  Since the two are exclusive (you wouldn't be able to heat and cool at the same time they can be jumped like you have currently but I think if you jumped that to your C terminal also it might cause problems.

    Terk got a reaction from sparc in SmartThings and GE Z-wave devices   
    Like terminal said,
    The exclusion means basically your clearing the hub information on the device you push the join button on at the moment, it can be done from any hub that has this capability regardless if it was ever joined to it before.
    With GE switches the join button is the on button, with Aeon micro switches you toggle the switch fast 10 times to remove and 3 times fast to join, many devices have an obvious button, like the Iris Garage Door Controller, EcoLink Z-Wave door/window sensors for both un-join and join you have to remove the battery, put it back in and hold the tiny button or put the lid back on.

    I just hope they leave the Youtube videos of reset/pairing instructions for their devices.
