    Iris 2.5?

    I noticed the same "raspberry" buzz on my first generation keypads starting this morning. The one second generation keypad that I have and the hub are generating the normal sounds. I tried performing a hub reboot, but no change. Is it to be assumed that this an intentional change? If so, I think I will disable keypad sounds ( I think this is selectable). Hearing the buzz every time we open a door or window is very annoying.

    Echo Show

    I found that I was able to "call" my own Echo from my iPhone without granting the app access to the contacts list. My wife wasn't even able to set-up her Android phone with the app because the app wouldn't let her scroll to the appropriate buttons for configuration.

    Iris Version 2.1 is Available for iOS and Android

    Seems to be okay on my iPhone 6S and iPad Air, both with iOS 10.3.1.

    Iris Keypads on Sale for $10.00

    I searched Lowe's website for stores around me. I have two stores very close, but only one of them had the keypad in stock and they were selling it for $23.99. I found that the price varied quite a bit for stores in the general area (Southern California). I did find a couple of stores that did have it listed at $10.00. I currently have three v1 keypads that I have permanently mounted to the walls of my house, but figured if I could score one for $10, it would be worth playing with and installing in the garage. I went to the local store that was selling them for $23.99, and asked them if they would price match the store that was selling them for $10. Somewhat to my surprise, they said they would, as the keypad was a non-stocked item. Apparently this means they will no longer be stocking this item in this store. It sounds like this keyboard is being discontinued.(?) In any event, I was happy to bring home the keypad for $10 and it seems to work. It's currently going through a firmware upgrade, but I played with it a little and seems to do what it's supposed to do, although I don't have any previous experience with this particular keypad. The store had three of these in stock. The one I got had been opened, but the pull-tab was still on the batteries. The other two units boxes were in worse shape, similar to what a previous poster had noted. I'm not so sure these were purchased/returned or whether the plastic mounting hanger used to hang these on the shelf hook does a number on them. All three that my store had weren't hanging-up, but rather bellow the hook on the shelf, with the plastic hangers pulled-out.

    Would like to know what to add to the web portal

    I know I'm late to the party on this thread, but now that we have a extensive History page, I think it would be nice to have some filtering capability. I think being able to filter on most of the device types you have listed on the Menu (e.g. Sensors, Switches, Keyfobs, etc.) would be very useful.

    Thermostats, Iris and Alexa

    Thanks to all that have responded, so far. The GoControl looks like it may better choice for my Mom. It has a nice big, backlit display and hardware buttons vs. soft keys. She's always been somewhat intimidated by the user interface of the CT101, and the display is difficult to see at times since the thermostat is located in a hallway and visibility is influenced by varying ambient lighting.

    Iris web portal V1.3.1

    Thanks, and I fully underestand. Having alarm status would certainly be useful as a first step (e.g. Off, On, Partial). The next step would be information if the alarm is triggered (i.e.which device(s) triggered the alarm and when) and lastly control of the alarm. I would think this would be the increasing order of complexity as well.

    Thermostats, Iris and Alexa

    What theremostats are people having success with utilizing Iris with the Amazon Alexa voice control? I have a Honeywell RTH9580WF thermostat which I didn't' have any luck with at controlling thru Iris using Alexa. I have since found that removing it from the Iris network and commanding directly from Alexa works fine. Reading other posts, it seems like others have had similar results. I'm considering replacing the CT101 at my Mom's house (on an Iris system) with something else. The CT101, although usually functional, has never been the most user friendly device for her. I'm also considering getting her a Dot and want a thermostat that could be controlled (preferably thru Iris) by Alexa voice commands. What do people recommend?

    Iris web portal V1.3.1

    Perhaps this has been brought up before, but I just realized there's no alarm related information/control included (other than in History). Is this for security reasons? Your webpage is now so useful, that I go to it almost exclusively, and use the Iris app less and less.. Having alarm functionality seems like it would be very beneficial, probably as a Homepage entry.

    I'm not sure why this should be browser dependent, but I did try Chrome in incognito mode, and still no history on motion sensors. I also noticed that on the individual devices, the history icon (little book) shows "No History Found" for the motion sensors, while there is history data for the contact sensors.

    Sorry if this question's already been asked, but this thread is getting pretty long... Is there a reason that motion sensor (at least V1) is not showing up in the history listing on the home page? I'm seeing contact sensor activity but nothing from the motion sensors. The motion sensor activity does show up on the Iris app.

    Lowe's presence at CES 2017

    I haven't been to CES in a few years, but what I've heard from my friends was that Iris has had a significant presence in the previous shows. It seems odd that they would completely drop out this year.

    Looks great! One minor comment...Under "Trobleshooting -> Hub Info", I'm still seeing the Signal Level screen. I'm not sure what was supposed to be displayed. I do see the Hub F/W version at the top of the screen, but that's on every screen. I'm viewing this on an iPad (not a full PC), so I don't know if that makes any difference.

    System Down?

    I'm having similar issues. Even before this thread started, my system was experiencing alarm issues. My wife tried leaving the house and the alarm wouldn't arm from either the keypad or keyfob (or so she thought). Then a short time later after she leaves the house, I get text messages and a phone call saying the alarm was tripped. I reset it remotely, but then when she gets home, it's not armed. I'm guessing this is all related.
