    Spectral for the Iris Cameras.

    O.k. so I specifically waved my hand 3 - 4" in front of this camera last night and I still don't see a video available for viewing. Do I need to re-run the installation steps listed on the site?

    O.k. I'll try again tonight, but I specifically went and walked in front of the camera to set off its motion sensor.

    Spectral for the Iris Cameras.

    So I was finally able to complete all the steps on the spectral site from my home network and they all seemed to complete o.k. Now I don't see any video or images available on the site?

    Iris Wireless Security Camera

    Thanks. I'm using mine inside and want them to be an active participant in the security system, so I guess I'm stuck for now.

    If I do that though, does the ability to use it as a security device go away? As in will it still detect motion for the security system?

    Iris Wireless Security Camera

    To be fair, I'm not unhappy with the camera itself. I love the design and concept, I just think it creates unnecessary clutter on the "clips" page. I just wish there was an option to turn off the automatic recording.

    Iris Wireless Security Camera

    I see now there is an extensive post from AccessDenied79 on the official forum. Looks like this is supposed to be a new "feature" of this camera. Guess I should have read the fine print before I bought them.

    Iris Wireless Security Camera

    All, I recently bought two of these new cameras and came across an interesting quirk. With the old indoor/outdoor camera you could control the "recording on movement" through the use of rules. With these new cameras, it appears that they record a 30 second clip on movement no matter what. I've looked through all of the options I could find and see no way to turn this option off. Has anyone come across this yet?

    Need range extender advice

    My understanding on this ppappydan is that any of the hardwired zwave devices serve as a signal repeater for the signal. Switches, outlets, etc..... I'm sure some of the users here will correct me if I'm wrong.

    Ecobee Switch+

    So I received one of these for Christmas and got it installed. So far I have not been able to get the Alexa speaker integrated into the switch to control my Iris smart switches or Thermostat. I was wondering if any one else had tried one of these switches yet and were able to get it successfully integrated into their system. I spent some time with customer support and their only answer at this point was to send a replacement switch as they think it's a hardware issue.

    Anyone notice that an app update is rolling out?

    I bought these off of Amazon. They work great. I charge them about once every 6 weeks. https://www.amazon.com/Miss-Rabbit-Protected-capacity-Rechargeable/dp/B07DBNX9RF/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1538676641&sr=8-1&keywords=6+x+2000mah+3.7v+Cr123a+16340+Li-ion+Rechargeable+Battery+%2BCharger&dpID=51fAhwVAJGL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

    IRIS Disconnects

    Ed, It's interesting you say that. I hadn't put the connection together, but I have my hub now sitting vertically and have also noticed very few drops. Prior to that in a different location it was sitting horizontally and I would experience near daily drops. An interesting observation to say the least.

    Any way to set 2 different grace periods?

    Giles, If you go into the app, into alarms and then click "More", you should see "Grace Periods" under the Security Settings area. This will allow you to customize the grace periods for arming and alarming if the system is triggered independently of each other. As far as chiming only on arming, I don't think that option exists yet.

    Random Device Drops

    Thanks, that's good to know.
