  1. Yea, I picked up a Wink not long after starting with Iris. I picked up the Wink 2 hub a while back on clearance at Walmart. They ended up sitting on a shelf in my shop because they have just been stagnant for so long. I ran the Wink hub alongside the Iris hub for quite a while just because of the ability to use the Lutron stuff directly with the Wink hub. I converted everything from Iris to Wink when Iris shut down, but soon switched to Smartthings and never really looked back.
  2. I definitely preferred Iris over Wink and SmartThings. Different reasons for each but Iris was more stable and reliable than either of the others I mentioned. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    "Works with Ring"

    Ring has apparently opened up, at least a little. You can now add some devices as certified, and others as non-certified. I would really like to see the Utilitech Siren added, as it is much louder than the Dome Siren/Chime. This is a step in the right direction. https://shop.ring.com/collections/smart-home-automation
  4. Have you tried this? https://radiothermostat.desk.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2738447-ct101-ct100-thermostat-reset ETA: Also found this on Smartthings Forum https://community.smartthings.com/t/resetting-previously-paired-ct100-thermostat/31497
  5. Most of my GE switches are the older ones. I had a little trouble with a couple of them, but most paired quickly with no trouble. I removed the from Iris with the hub in same room. In fact I removed all devices one room at a time. I first paired all of them to Wink and ran that for a couple weeks. Then I did the same to remove from Wink. Took hub to each room, removed all devices in that room. Took SmartThings hub to that room and paired each device. I removed each device and then also performed z-wave reset with either hub just to have a second verification that it was reset. They pa
  6. I powered up and paired one device at a time. One room at a time, while having the hub in that room. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I just tried it and it worked fine. Although, I'm glad I read @Otto Mation instructions about using messaging. When I first tried, I was going to use "Alexa Says".
  8. Both of my GDO's show available as a trigger for this routine. I will try it when I am at home, but looks like it would work like any other door sensor.

    I’ve begun migrating from Wink to SmartThings. I like Wink, but it has limitations and some annoying issues. 1). I have a Dome Siren/chime connected and set to chime on certain doors opening with different tunes to differentiate doors. Works most of the time, but occasionally will repeat the chime tune 4 times after opening a door. 2). Most contact sensors don’t log activity accurately. There may be no history for a door I’ve been through 10 times, but it will turn on the light I have connected through a Wink Robot. So I know the contact sensor is working. It was this way with 3 diffe
  10. I ran an Iris hub in the same room as a Wink hub and a Philips Hue Bridge. I was using Ezviz wifi cameras as well as 5 Iris cameras, 2 of which were in the same room as the rest of the stuff. I had a pretty stable system, with no known interference issues. Other than my kids 4 gaming consoles interfering with my bandwidth... I am currently running the Wink hub, Ring hub and the Hue bridge in that same room with 2 Ezviz cams and various other electronics that has remained unchanged throughout this transition from Iris. I also have a Smartthings hub ready to get hooked up some time
  11. First pic is more stuff for house, ST hub, a couple of old version sensors and a starter for my tractor. Second is stuff I decided to pick up for work. I was going to eliminate a hub, but I rely too much on scheduled lights and plugs. As well as Alexa control. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. First delivery. More to come. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The Dome siren is a nice add to Wink. You get the door chimes back with several choices to differentiate between doors. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Visa Cards

    I must be a bonehead. I tried In Store pickup, delivery to address the card was shipped to, and even added to my personal account with delivery to my house. Rejected every time.☹️

    Multiple users are allowed and you can even control which devices the users have access to. Last time I talked to Wink support, they did not support multiple users for geo fence which is what I think they were looking for. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
