    Yes. We have posted an audio file of the range of tones that the control system can generate on a V1 keypad for the Beta testers.

    These devices have been profiled for use with the new SystronicsRF system, and devices of each type have been paired to the system, and are functioning correctly. The finalized profiles will not be available for some of these devices for downloading until Monday.

The aim is to profile all of the devices that are currently being used in conjunction with the 1st Generation Iris devices. The next stage is to complete the profiling of the 2nd and 3rd Generation Iris devices, together with more GE devices, and other commonly used devices, before moving onto the Schlage and Kwikset door locks.

    We should perhaps explain that we have not just suddenly shown up to address the needs of 1st Generation Iris users. It is an ideal opportunity for us, and for the many Iris users looking to retain their existing, and often very large, 1st Generation systems. We have been developing our home automation system for more than two years. It’s also underpinned with decades of experience in the design and development of online systems, and high performance, mission critical, control systems. Addressing the needs of the 1st Generation Iris users is just the first stage, albeit a very important one. As can be seen from our website, and from earlier our posts on the forum last year, our system already handles the more modern HA and LL ZigBee devices, and Z-Wave devices. Our attention only shifted fully onto the 1st Generation Iris systems last year, with the news that Lowe’s was looking to sell the Iris brand. We are certainly doing our best to meet the end of March deadline, with the help of the Beta testers, but we’re also in it for the long haul.

    Quote from a Beta tester: “I got envelope today, but the SD cards had been sliced out of the envelope. The anti-static sleeve was cut open at the bottom as well as the side of the envelope, I look forward to the download.”

    We have added four more videos. Each video page includes links towards the bottom of the page to the other video pages. If you go to the installation video, then you can reach the others in this way.

    Our responses to your posts are triggered by the arrival of email alerts. We have just realized that we are receiving these emails about 4 hours after the comment was posted. This means that we are out of phase with the discussion, and our last post was superfluous.

    Not sure what's happening, but: 1. You need to be logged in as a registered website visitor. It will recognize your account as being for a Beta tester. 2. The link to the video page is only in the email that we sent to you. 3. You cannot navigate to it from within the main website. 4. The attachment shows the page.

    Apologies. We had not added every Beta tester to the list of those with authorized access. Everyone who has supplied their address, for the SD card, should be authorized.

    We’ve been communicating with existing Iris users in a variety of ways, including the forum, PMs on the forum, the website, and by email. We have been unable to identify you on the website from your forum name. Can you please email me at adrian@systronicsrf.com, and I will get it sorted. We will be adding field to the user’s personal profile area on the website for their forum name, which will help in future.

    We need a verified email account for security reasons. We've removed your original registration and user account. Please logout (if you're logged in), and re-register. You will then receive a new welcoming email including the link required to verify your email account.

    The control system runs directly on the hub, and it exchanges data frames with each device, and controls the devices down to Endpoint / Cluster / Attribute level for ZigBee, and Command Classes for Z-Wave. You will find more on the following pages: https://www.systronicsrf.com/technology/centralised-control.html https://www.systronicsrf.com/technology/device-profiling.html https://www.systronicsrf.com/technology/exchanging-frames.html https://www.systronicsrf.com/technology/developers-user-interface.html https://www.systronicsrf.com/technology/creating-a-profile.html Having this degree of control over the devices, we should be better placed to control devices , such as the Orbit Sprinkler. You can use Visual Studio, but you will find that the IDE / Compiler running on the hub has all of the capability that you will need. It compiles and executes directly on the hub, and entirely locally in a self-contained manner, and without the need for the the application to restart. We use these tools to create all of the profiles for the devices that we test, including those listed on these pages: https://www.systronicsrf.com/devices As I’m sure you appreciate, our To-Do list is rather long. Our first priority is to get the Beta testing under way, which starts with Iris 1st generation devices, and then moves on to other Iris devices. We will certainly schedule the Orbit Sprinkler in, and we’ll get in touch when we get nearer to looking into it.

    Our apologies. You should have received an email by now with your password. When a visitor first logs in, they are sent a confirmation email containing a link, clicking on which verifies them. We have now made the need to click on the verification email link clearer on the myProfile page, when someone has registered, but remain unverified, instead of just returning them to the home page.

    We were taken by surprise by yesterday’s news, along with everyone else. Our aim now is to protect the March 31st date for having a system capable of handling the Gen 1 devices that can be offered to all existing users. We are continuing with the Beta testing, as planned, but with a shift in emphasis. The original plan was to focus initially on the use of 1st generation Iris devices. That was intended to enable users to gain a complete understanding of the system based on just these devices. Having become familiar with the system in this way, users can then move to their other devices. Starting with the 1st generation devices in this way is not a reflection of the capability of the system, which already handles ZigBee HA, ZigBee LL, Z-Wave, and WiFi devices, it is merely a sensible way of moving forward. In light of yesterday’s news, we intend to extend this approach. The focus will continue to be 100% on the 1st generation devices, until the majority of the Beta users are satisfied that we have a system that can be offered with confidence to all of the users of the 1st generation devices. Only then, will we move onto the other devices. In our view, this is the best way of protecting the March 31st date for most users. We intend to ship the software on preloaded Micro SD cards, so that we can all focus on testing the system ASAP. This shipping will start next week, and we’ve been quoted a 5 day shipping lead time. The original plan was to involve between 5 and 10 people in this Beta testing. We have increased this to 20, on the basis that more people sharing the load should expedite the process. We will be sending invitations to those of you with 1st generation devices who have registered on the website, have shown most interest, and have provided us with details about your system. More details will be provided about the Beta testing to those of you who have accepted the invitation.
