Iris Motion Sensor: Tiny SmartThings Sensors Everywhere


(Jamie Bailey) #1


I deployed 10 Iris motion sensors (model 3326-L) in my house to monitor the activity in 10 different rooms. This little sensor just became my favorite motion sensor. Tiny, $30, good range, quick response times, and ST compatible. I wrote up a short review of my experience at http://blog.initialstate.com/iris-motion-sensor-tiny-smartthings-sensors-everywhere/ .

And they run local with smart lighting!

I love these too, I have about 6 of them. I have had one that eats batteries. Resets didn’t help. Replacing it was only fix. they work great. Nice write up!

Same… they are my go to purchases since Lowes will put them on sale a couple times a year for under $30. I also had one that has turned up eating batteries. It has ate 2 batteries…may try it again, as I dont learn quickly lol. They tend to work as good if not better than the ST sensors I have.

Any chance the led light in you sensor that eats batteries on all the time?

I watch the prices on these closely. Recently Lowe’s actually put the prices up!

They used to be $22.99 and $29.99 …

I had a hope that on Father’s day we would see some decent deals with these devices…

Just noticed they’ve put them on sale. Question about battery life: I’d like to put one in a fairly high traffic area. Will extended periods of motion drain the battery faster? Trying to decide if a sensor that can be plugged in would be better. I’m curious as to what (if any) impact it would have on battery life. Looks like a good deal.

I have them in extremely high traffic places and I see no difference in battery life from those in very quiet areas.
