Arcus Smart Home

I have the Iris Petsmart dog door via the Iris app I was able to lock/unlock the dog door remotely. It was a great way to control how much time my dogs spent outside (barking/digging) but get them outside if I was running late. I relied on this door once my job changed and I couldn't come home at lunch anymore.

Is there a new open source app one can use to control the products through the Iris hub?

Yes, Arcus appears to have all the same code from Iris around petdoors, but I don't have one to tinker with. Your options are 1) port petdoor driver to your platform of choice 2) use Arcus (only if you are very technical) 3) find someone else to run Arcus for you.

AFAIK, I'm still the only one running Arcus in production since Iris shut down on March 31st, so your option is likely on #1.
