    SmartThings experience so far

    Thanks for the heads up Pavalov!

    SmartThings experience so far

    I will throw my .02 in here also. ST is a great alternative to IRIS but for us not very tech savvy people who just want things to work out of the box it’s just okay. I really liked the the app set up with IRIS, we live in Washington State and have a house in Arizona. Seeing the history first thing when opening the IRIS app and ease of checking both places was great......a little less convenient than ST and I personally hate the history of every little thing the hub does. Switched over to Arlo cams (which I really like but don’t see much difference than IRIS) viewing in ST sucks I use the Arlo app and that’s a little inconvenient. I had all version 1 door and window sensors and I thought they worked awesome......ST multi sensors use batteries quick so far and the door needs to be open about four inches for it to show open where IRIS could be 1/4 inch and show open (having dogs and kids makes this important to me). I do love the smart door app in ST for changing codes and history in the classic app.....which having to use two apps to accomplish different things suck also. All in all it does what I need though and hopefully as I adjust to it I learn to like it the way I did IRIS.

    My .02

    In fact it’s better than IRIS as it also gives me the option to text the new code to my renter when I enter it......didn’t have that option with IRIS!

    Yes your missing something.......I also have a house in Arizona on HomeAway and luckily we had already planned a trip when this all happened and I was able to change everything but door sensors and camera over to SmartThings. You need the classic app to do it.....

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    Thanks Vettester, do you happen to know if the Gen 1 cameras will eventually have audio also?

    My 2nd Gen Cameras now have audio

    Our three 2nd gen cameras at our house in Washington State now have audio! The crazy thing is the four cameras we have at our Arizona house don’t? Not sure if it’s a slow roll out update or what?
