    Iris Cameras

    Iris cameras can now be used with the Control System. They can be joined, configured, and streamed. The feeds can be displayed on a dashboard, and individual feeds can be viewed full screen by tapping / clicking on the dashboard feed. Being treated in the same way as any other device, they can also be used to detect motion, by PIR, video, or audio, and trigger an alarm, such as by chiming the 1st Generation Iris keypad. The Iris cameras OC821, RC8221, and OC830 are currently supported. The Control System can also be used to control the cameras, and view their video feeds, without any ZigBee or Z-Wave network being connected. Video recording to a USB memory device plugged into the Pi is being added, and will be made available to purchasers during the next two weeks. We’re currently running a Black Friday -> Cyber Monday promotion, with a $50.00 discount until midnight tonight (user’s local time): https://www.systronicsrf.com/buy-now.html This includes the new camera facility, along with the rest of the Control System, so you can extend it to include Iris Gen 1 devices, modern HA and ZLL devices, and Z-Wave devices, just by adding the appropriate USB Network Adapter. Although the Control System runs locally within your home, and without any reliance on an Internet connection, you do have the option of remote access via the Cloud Console, all included in the price. No extras, no subscription.

    Alexa for SystronicsRF

    Based on the device information that was kindly provided by many Iris users at the beginning of this year, Amazon Alexa is in most demand, with Google Assistant in second place. This also reflects their wider dominance of the Home Automation market. For this reason, our top priority is Amazon Alexa, which will be followed by Google Assistant. Once these are in place, we will certainly be reviewing the use of other voice assistants, and the demand for them, including Siri for Apple users.

    Alexa for SystronicsRF

    @smittysmit Please see our more detailed response on the SystronicsRF Forum. In general, the Alexa integration was well advanced back in June, but other activities have since taken priority. A new version of the Control System with the Iris cameras fully integrated will be released by the end of this month. The completion of the Alexa integration will then definitely be our top priority.

    My Apps

    My Apps has been extended to include a Novice Editing Mode option. The Apps were introduced initially by Beta Testers defining a collection of Advanced Activators, which provide the user interface, and Advanced Actions, which control the operation of the Control System. To date, users, and especially those with more challenging requirements, and larger systems, have been able to meet all of their requirements in this way, from controlling lighting, to HVAC, and security. My Apps was introduced in June to enable these Advanced Activators and Advanced Actions to be encapsulated, so as to provide a separate, self-contained App for each requirement. The Novice Editing Mode, which has now been added, provides a much simplified version of the existing, full-capability, App Designer. It is intended primarily for new users, but can also be used to create Apps that will meet many users’ simpler requirements. In the Novice Mode, the each App has a predefined function, so the user has only to select their devices. The user is guided through the selection of the individual devices, and the setting up of the App, with additional instructions at each stage of the process. It is anticipated that the full capability designer, which is now referred to as the Advanced Editing Mode, will be used primarily to meet the more sophisticated requirements. All of the Apps use the same regular Advanced Actions and Advanced Activators underneath, whether they are designed via the Novice Mode or the Advanced Mode. The only difference is that the Novice Mode provides a simplified designer. Users can switch between these two App designer modes. If the user creates an App using the Novice Mode, then they can easily switch to the Advanced Mode, which then enables them to take full advantage of the entire underlying capability of the Control System. A set of Template Apps are provided, any of which can be selected as the basis for an App in either the Novice Mode or the Advanced Mode. There are currently 25 templates, covering lighting, HVAC, safety & security, energy control, wellbeing, convenience, and green living. New templates are being added on a daily basis. Having selected a template, the user has only to select the devices that they intend to use with the App, which then makes it available for immediate use. If the user chooses to edit the template derived App in the Advanced Mode, then they can adapt it, and extend it, to whatever extent they need to meet their specific requirement.
  15. 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: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkuwjOnhv5RMr4UwvBs-9jA/playlists
