  1. Iris Camera Quality

    I agree. There is no comparison between the Iris cameras and other surveillance systems. Moving off from Iris to Amcrest was one of the best things I've done. I can't say enough about how much better the quality is and the ability to record sound to a local DVR that retains 4 TB of video quality for roughly 45 days is incredible. I have now seven cameras recording at 1080P quality.
  2. Constant False Alarms

    Yup, I do have a camera system in the house. It happens usually when I see the cat walking from one room to the other setting off multiple sensors. It never used to be an issue for over a year until the last month or so.
  3. Constant False Alarms

    Is anyone else recently seeing a LOT of false alarms with Iris? I've had my motion sensors placed in the exact same places for a year and a half and just now recently I am getting constant false alarms for motion being detected that I never had an issue with before. It's not the heat running or anything like that since it doesn't run during the day at all. I do have a cat that I think is causing the motion detections which is odd because all of the sensors are mounted above door frames and she has never caused this to happen before. But I can't keep constantly cancelling false alarms and spending time turning off the alarm while my pets are petrified. Anyone else having the motion detectors seem overly sensitive recently?
  4. Iris V2 Energy Monitoring?

    According to a post on the official Iris community forum, Lowes currently has no plans of bringing this back in V2. We were duped.
  5. Deadbolt locked but iris doesn't know

    I'm glad I'm not crazy. I got onto the forum today just to see if anyone else is having this happen. I have the Schlage touch-screen deadbolt. This issue seems to have started in the last few weeks for me. I never recall having this issue in the past. It is annoying, especially since I happen to have company staying at my house right now so I'm paranoid that the lock wasn't locked properly...
  6. Is Lowe's Still Accepting Returns?

    Your best bet would be to reach out to the irisbylowes member on here directly and ask. They may have to contact the store directly to get this setup for you. I have a feeling that they may not accept that however.
  7. Halo Installed and Issues

    I didn't notice that line in the manual about only connecting to other Halo's. That is crazy! Do they really think that people will outfit their entire house with detectors that are $100/pop? Not a chance! My house has 12 detectors in it and is only 1100 Square foot .
  8. Halo's are now available

    I picked up a + last night at my local Lowes. On the Lowes website it said they only had 1 in stock, but when I got to the store they actually had four. They were all lumped together with the first alert detectors.
  9. New TOS and Privacy Policy

    Gives me the warm and fuzzies. Especially the part where basically they say they hold no responsibility to anything Iris does, or does not do. It's more or less to be trusted no more than a Toy. Glad so many of us have trusted our home's security and our safety on this platform. The irony as far as the smoke alarms go, maybe it COULD reach code if they had given us the option of the smoke alarms supporting interlink/wired connections from the get-go. But I forget, they instead wanted to make sure they sold as many detector's as possible by not designing them to work with each other. To me it feels like they were designed with the idea of making more money in mind, than actual safety gains from having them interlinked. Why sell one detector that can alert you over Iris if a single one goes off, when they could sell an entire house load instead!
  10. Halo Installed and Issues

    Thanks for the information Otto! The reviews on Lowe's website are off to a rocky start already for the Halo unfortunately it looks like. Others are seeing the same with the light turning itself off after 30 minutes. There are reports too that with the light on, the Halo's internal temperature is rising significantly during that time period. Interesting! We have one in stock at my local Lowes. I am on the fence about jumping on it just yet. $129 isn't exactly light on the wallet.
  11. Halo's are now available

    This is exciting! can the light on the Halo be scheduled then like a regular light in Iris? This would work great for a nightlight in my hallway..!
  12. My iris grade is...

    I'd give it a C-. Lack of Parity is the major issue. Really no excuse at this point. V2 has been out for how long now? Squeaking close to two years now?
  13. Iris Keypads on Sale for $10.00

    They're $16 here in Michigan. lol. EDIT: one store is $16 in my town, and the other is $10.
  14. My system has been acting up today

    29%, but that's also what it said before I replaced the batteries too.
  15. My system has been acting up today

    I have one incredibly angry spouse today. They got home with arm loads of groceries and entered in the disarm pin to the keypad and it just kept beeping. Entered it in six different times and the alarm would not disarm. The alarm started going off and would not stop. Finally after about two minutes after giving up, the blasted alarm finally stopped going off. We've been having this issue for weeks now where the keypad will continue beeping for 30 seconds or so after trying to enter in the pin and disarm the system. It is especially upsetting that I have pets and a spouse that are furious at ME because of this alarm system. Incredibly frustrating.
