  1. Iris 2.7 email

    My guess is iphone X support
  2. Maintenance notice from Iris

    They added a setting to record for 5 minutes if the alarm goes off. If you're on the basic plan can you see if this feature works for you? I'm guessing it won't, but that has been discussed with the support team.
  3. Maintenance Notice from Iris

    I looked, it says you have to have the garage door controller to set that rule (I don't.) In theory if you set that to 10 min, it would be the same as the key fob presence, but I imagine it could get annoying if you're working in the yard or washing the car for 10 minutes with the door left open. Oh well, maybe in the next update. Seems pretty logical to me, and it just surprises me that they add so many options but this is left off.
  4. Maintenance Notice from Iris

    Ok I'll take a look too. Let me know if you see that it works. Of all the over-complicate-type things to automate what I want is pretty straight forward. Leave House... forget to close garage, hey idiot text message. The whole point should be for it to automatically tell you, not that you have to look.
  5. Maintenance Notice from Iris

    With rule updates to the GDO, can you now be notified if you just leave the thing open? Not actually close it, but say you just have the tilt sensor, leave door open, mode changes to away, Can you set it up to send a message? I see it says tilt sensor trigger between certain time of day, but is it possible to tie to a scene?
  6. Iris Smart Button 3460-L , a peak under the hood

    So I don't use the V2 smart button all that often, but it's still working, nothing mechanically wrong with it. I still like mine. A while back I got a low battery notification too, actually got a battery, went to install and due to how I mounted it I had a hard time figuring out how to remove the battery so I didn't, and the low battery indicator ended up turning off and it's worked fine ever since. I've only played with the 1, but I can't imagine they all eat batteries, I'd guess there's something wrong with yours or maybe it's just like you said losing contact some how. It looks like you can still buy a V1 button for 19.97 on lowes site.
  7. How does professional monitoring work

    Support said that a few people have called in and asked about making limited camera storage part of the basic plan and it was discussed on their side Id say if this is important to you, call in and ask for it as well. Seems like They've done a good job at adding features we've requested so let's add this to the list
  8. The grace period false alarm is just me being dumb/slow... I don't know what's up with my motion sensor, I have 4 total and only 1 of them cause the false alarm issue.
  9. I'm checking with my insurance. My concern is I set it off by accident a lot. Both from grace periods being set to 15s and only having 1 motion sensor trigger. Both could be solved by changing grace period to 30s and requiring 2 motion sensors, but personally I like the "trigger happy" system and tolerate an occasional false alarm. Do others get false alarms or does everyone have it set more conservatively?
  10. I'm going to call and complain/make a suggestion They should give you very very basic free storage, then add the 3GB as an up-sell feature for the professional monitor. Worth a try
  11. How does professional monitoring work

    For those that are doing the pro option, how many motion sensors do you have the requirement set to? Not using the monitored service, I have mine set to 1. I get an occasional false alarm, but it's not a big deal. I don't think I'd be comfortable having it call the cops every month or two if I don't respond quickly to their phone call. In one sense, professional monitoring would make me feel more secure, but if by doing so I change my motion sensor requirement, that feels like a step backwards.
  12. Looks like Iris was Featured in an Engadget Article

    That simplisafe company that advertises on TV must now be the closest competitor. I think they're $14.99 for a similar monitored/4G backup service. Maybe that's how Lowe's decided on 14.95.
  13. Were there any other surprises when moving to the basic plan?
  14. They updated the website to show the differences between the Basic, Premium, and Monitored plans. https://www.irisbylowes.com/plans/ I think it's great that the rules and scenes are now free and hopefully this will encourage growth and by offering a monitored service, that's a nice option for those who value that (and it's soo much cheaper than ADT, Xfinity Home, etc.) I'm struggling a little bit to understand why the middle tier $9.99 premium still exists. A Notification list for up to 6 people to receive alerts and alarm notifications Enhanced history service with a 14-day view and visualization of your history log* 3G Storage of Camera Video Clips A self-monitored Care service that notifies family members when loved ones daily routines are disturbed Alarm Trackerâ„¢ - real time visualization of an alarm event in your home Additional enhanced in-home, app, and web experiences, such as coordinated colors, lights, and sounds, for even greater benefits from having a smart home*** It's great that rules are free, but it seems a little unreasonable that you only get 24 hours of history in the log. If you want professional monitoring, you'd pay the $15. But would anyone feel it's worth $10 a month to check and see what happened in your house yesterday? I don't think this is worth $120/year but by truncating the functionality could annoy people Same thing on the camera storage. I understand their servers aren't free and cost money to offer everyone space for videos, so if you want 3G of storage and you frequently make recording then of course you'd pay for it. ex. Nest/Dropcam offers a similarly priced service although you do get non stop footage, let's just say the concept and price point is similar. But for me personally, I'm not recording 24/7. I have no clips stored currently. I don't need a lot of space. But, if I have a home invasion, I want the 10 minute recorded video of the intruder. Can I have 100 MB free? That would seem reasonable. If I recall, I thought V1 had a very low amount of FREE space, and premium brought more space. Again, it's hard to complain when they make stuff free now, but they made the history and "basic" camera storage free, that would make me really happy!
  15. I hope they let you record your camera off alarm trigger under the free plan. I don't care if there is little to no storage (for free), or a short period to allow you to store it online, simply put I would hope that function would be considered a rule. Any idea for those who downgraded?
