    Looking for 2nd gen motion

    I am looking for some V1 smart buttons. Got any of those?
  2. If anyone has a couple of these they are willing to part with, send me a PM and let me know how much you would like for them. I'm looking for two,or three to add to my system. Thanks

    I have set up/registered the hub and started testing a few devices. So far, it has worked well and responds VERY quickly. I have not shifted any of my 'in use' devices over yet, just some of the extras I had laying around. I'm not sure at this point how much we are supposed to discuss in the forum, how far we are expected to push our test setups, or what Systronics wants us to actually be testing. Still waiting for additional direction, i guess. It seems that right now @SystronicsRF is having to deal with shipping and other things. . . I'm patient.

    Received my microSD card in the mail today.

    I received a similar email this morning. I sent them my mailing address. I'm ready to roll, hardware in-hand. Hopefully this community effort can help create something viable before the 'offline deadline' IRIS has promised us.
  6. Yes, Interested in this. I have a couple smart plugs and some buttons, motion detectors, etc. that I bought a while ago for project that I never got around to installing. Hopefully there will be an answer to this.

    Orbit 12 station not watering

    I actually got some mixed results from renaming my zones back to default. What eventually fixed it for good was making sure I had Smart Plugs v2 close enough to the Orbit timer to relay the ZigBee signal to the timer. Weird thing was that the connectivity to turn on zones from my phone never disappeared, there was only trouble with the automated watering schedule. I figured that if I could turn on zones from my phone, the signal must have been 'good enough', but installing Smart Plug repeaters seems to have fixed it for good. My lawn is now trying to recover from the IRIS induced drought.

    Orbit 12 station not watering

    I think I figured this out on my own for anyone who ends up having the same issue. I believe the trouble was the fact that I named each zone. I names them according to location (i.e. Front East, Front Middle, etc). Today, I removed the Orbit timer and re-paired it. When I was asked to select and rename the zones I wanted to use and give them default watering times, I just left them as Zone1, Zone2, etc. I gave them watering times and then tested an automatic watering schedule/cycle. It seems to work just fine with the default zone names in the system.
  9. I have reset, repaired, tried different schedules. Everything looks correct on the device and in the app, the app even reports the next event correctly throughout the water cycle/schedule. However, no water comes on. I can see the next event change to the time the next zone should start even, but no water turns on. I can turn the sprinklers on from my phone app at any time, any zone. But the schedule never waters. Anyone had a problem like this?

    GE Devices Having Trouble

    Resetting and rebuilding has slowly worked to get my GE devices back online, but it is going slowly and has still not completely worked. I still have 6 items offline. I'm going to sleep on it, but if things have not worked themselves out in the morning, I'm probably going to have to call tech support. This is the only time I have ever had this kind of problem with my IRIS system.
  11. This afternoon many of my GE devices have gone offline. Like 14 light switches are offline, a GE plug in switch, and a GE wall outlet. All GE, all offline right now. I tried restarting the hub - no change I am now rebuilding the Z-Wave network, after an hour, it is at 60% - No change yet. Hopefully the rebuild will bring them back. One of my GE switches is actually stuck in the ON position and will not turn off even at the switch, manually. Is there something going on? or any suggestions for additional troubleshooting?

    Osram bulb experience?

    I put my laundry lights on a smart switch in the wall and a motion sensor so the wife doesn't even have to spare a hand to flip the switch. It turns itself off after a minute or so (after motion is not detected anymore). As a bonus, coming in from the garage (through the laundry) is safer now that the lights are automatic AND this is a major entry into my house, so I use the sensor for the alarm as well.

    Toasty Freezer

    Some issue here. I changed the battery and while the sensor was out the the freezer, it reported 61 degrees I put it back in the freezer thinking it was fixed. The next time I checked the app, over 7000 degrees again. I have also had a temp sensor in the freezer save me from a broken freezer when it alerted me the temp was rising and I discovered there was a blockage in the coil. Cleaned it out and the freezer has been running great for over a year since. I'd like to be able to monitor the freezer again.

    Locks not Reporting WHO

    I spent some time with my Schlage Deadbolt BE469. I un-paired it, then reset the lock to factory, reset the hub. It took a while to re-pair it, but I got it to connect after about 30 minutes of messing with it. I then had to rebuild the Z-Wave and reassign users to the lock. . . Then, guess what? It still doesn't tell me who's PIN was used to unlock it from the lock's keypad, or from the Android mobile app. EVERYTHING else tells me who did things in the app, like when I set the thermostat one degree cooler, my history says 'cool setpoint set to 78 deg. by Brian'. When I turn lights on the history says 'Switched on by Brian'. However, when I unlock or lock my Schalge BE469 the history simply says 'unlocked' or 'locked'. This is infuriating, especially since this worked perfectly a few weeks ago. Nothing changed on my end, so something must have been changed by IRIS.

    Best pet safe motion

    That's one of the first things I did with IRIS - I love the light coming on 20% with motion in the hallway at night. During the day, no response. I have two small dogs, and because of the placement of my IRIS v2 motion sensor, I am able to just use a piece of electrical tape to cover the sensor in a way that it won't read motion on the floor, just upper torso motion. Has worked great this way for a long time. The dogs never turn the light on.
