OK, this is how my Iris converson project is shaping up.
This is based on functions
Bilge water monitoring and alarming. Currently I am using two everspring water leak detectors. They are compatible with smartthings so I will just have to re-pair them.
Fire, smoke, and CO alarming. Right now I have five smoke/co alarms that are First Alert brand and are smartthings compatible. These will be re-paired.
AC power sensing. My boat is equipped with a UPS, plus an inverter, and either shore power or generator. The old sensors I had are incompatible. I will use Fortrezz MIMO Lite units for this
DC power sensing. The old sensor is imcompatible. I’ll use a Fortrezz MIMO Lite for this. First step is that I will try to read DC voltage as a analog value and set alarm points based on that. If that function fails then I’ll use the MIMO on my State Of Charge meter’s alarm contacts which is what I’m doing right now.
Temperature sensing. Most of the temperature sensing is currently with incompatible motion sensors. I have 10 smartthings motion sensors on order. This will also serve as the intrusion sensing.
Built in electric heater control. Right now I have three GE smart switches. These are compatible with smartthings and will be re-paired. These are automated using adjacent motion sensors for temperature, making a virtural thermostat. I’m thinking this will be easy with smartthings.
Diesel furnace control. This is just a on off function. Right now I have two Lowes smart switches which are really Centralite Series 3 units. these are smartthings compatible and will be re-paired.
Engine room warm air control. This is also just a inconpatible smart switch. I have a Aeotech smartswitch 6 on order as a replacement. This will be paired with a smartthings motion sensor to make a virtural thermostat
Engine Room electric heater This is also a incompatible smart switch and will be replaced with a aerotech smartswitch6 paired with a smartthings motion sensor to make a virtual thermostat.
Notifications and alarming. I have a Utilitech wireless indoor siren as well as a 120 volt school bell driven by a smartplug. This will be re-paired to work with smartthings. Right now I have phone notificaton through Lowes, but I haven’t found that feature all that useful, so I’ll be dependant on email and push notifications when I’m not onboard.
In the future I’ll probably change things up a bit but this will get me back to my current functionality. For example I’ll probably use MIMO units for the furnace control, and the Aeotech nano switch to control the engine room electric heater, but first step is I need to get a functioning system prior to the Iris shutdown.
As of right now I have all the new comnponents on order and am waiting for things to arrive to start the process.
