    New Difference between Basic and Premium

    I get having unique users for the overall system, notification, etc. But I'm surprised it's not easier to just set a lock code. You should just be able assign a unique lock code without adding a user, and being fancy, even assign an hour window (ex. 12 PM - 4 PM) that the code is valid.

    New Difference between Basic and Premium

    Thanks for all the info. I think the longer history range would be my # 1 request of the 5, but it's probably not worth keeping just for that. One follow up question on the locks... I only ever used 1 pin for my lock (even thought I was on premium). I was surprised, is there no easy way to just add a simple unique lock code? My memory is bad but I thought on V1 you could create a lock pin that would only work between certain hours. Looking at the app it appeared you had to add a user, submit email address, password, etc. just to add a lock code. Am I doing it wrong or is that the only way to add a pin ?
  3. I'm sure the middle tier "premium" plan is the least popular, however I don't wish to have professional monitoring and I've kept the $10 plan simply due to the camera storage for recording on alarm events. With the recent change to basic (free) including 24 hours of storage, In theory in the event a break-in, you'd have the videos on the IRIS cloud and you could download them to your phone. I'm debating, but had some other questions to confirm if there's anything else I'd be missing. Can anyone that's seen the difference between basic and premium help answer ? 1. History Log - Says 24 hours vs 14 days with visualization... Does that mean the bar graph with the hours is no longer present on the basic? Honestly if they are giving video storage for free, I'm surprised 14 day history isn't standard too 2. Alarm Tracker - Does that just mean instead of the colored screen that lists what sensors are going off, you'd just have to look at the history? Probably not a big deal? 3. Notifications for 6 people - I only have 1 log-in account but I use it on multiple devices, Assume that this would be unaffected? 4. Care - I don't use 5. Anything else ? - Is there anything else that could be a surprise, other than the extra $10/month I'll be saving? Notifications and Rules - From what I'm reading is there no impact?

    Cameras discontinued? Whats going on with iris?

    Lowe’s posted on the official forum that a new camera is coming out in the fall. I agree it’s annoying to not have stock, but I’m super excited as a new camera has long been on the wish list. Any speculation to what it could offer ? I think adjustable sensativity would be high on my list.

    Sad news for Halo Labs

    That's too bad. If they will still function under the IRIS platform, I wonder if any will be available on clearance or if that would be a bad idea.

    iOS 2.11 is Now Available

    I’m curious about the smart+ bulbs As discussed in the other thread about bulbs, I don’t think the smart + ones were previously supported. It was a shame as the lightify ones worked great. I’d like to hear if anyone gets one to work. The pairing screen definitely looks fancier too.

    Sylvania lightify A19 not supported?

    Ordered the Sengled A19 bulbs will report back over the weekend if they work

    Sylvania lightify A19 not supported?

    Thanks. It looks like the Iris app supports four different sizes/models, so hopefully the color A19 one works the same. I guess there’s different ways to handle connected bulbs but I generally leave the dumb switch always in the ON position and I fix a smart button on the wall adjacent to the old switch and use that moving forward. I would hope that would work the same with these as welll.

    Sylvania lightify A19 not supported?

    Has anyone had any luck with the Hue bulbs? Support says they need the bridge, I'm not sure why if the bulb is Zigbee. Can anyone confirm whether it needs the bridge/Hub? At best buy they said if you have an echo plus (tall one) that the Hue bulbs can connect to that without the actual Hue bridge/Hub. I wonder if that would link to IRIS, again without the secondary Hue Bridge. Any ideas?

    Sylvania lightify A19 not supported?

    Thanks for the tip on the Sengled bulb. I hadn't heard of those but you're right, it's listed as a device on the IRIS app. Is this the one you're referring to? Too bad it appears they don't have them in store, but it's not a bad price ($30) If you're sure it works, I may just order one.

    Interesting on the need the hub to update. I'd like to learn a little more about that, I'd hate to have to buy a hub just for a tool, but it's good to know it may work. It looks like the color ones on Amazon are Smart+, but there's a handful of Osram on Ebay

    Sylvania lightify A19 not supported?

    I'm also curious if anyone has resolved this issue. I called IRIS support and they said the Hue bulbs are the only ones for sale that are supported. I find it hard to believe that there wouldn't be a Z-Wave / Zigbee bulb that works without a bridge. Anyone have any luck with a Home Depot, Amazon, or any other old stock Lightify or equivalent colored bulb?

    New Products in 2018?

    Has anyone heard any rumors (from support or any other source) of any potential new products for 2018? I thought I read scunny posted a rumor about a new keypad..... that would be nice. I'm hoping for a new camera. The current V2 one works fine, but something newer (Arlo?) would be great. Any rumors?

    Refreshed V2 Devices

    I'd be curious to know if the refreshed smart button is more durable than the original V2 one. The low profile is nice vs V1, but they seem to break.
