Iris Smart Plug WiFi

#41

Ha Ha. One for home up north and one for the snowbirding location in FL!!

If the Iris App would still work to connect to Google Assistant , that would do the trick. Looks like Lowe’s is going to release the code as open source , so something might happen down the line.

Take the credit they are giving for them and buy zigbee or zwave plugs.

I had 3 hooked up when they did the snapshot of devices , prior their announcement. I managed to hook up 11 more on the day of the announcement. Still waiting to see if they will honor reimbursement for them. Some I had shipped to PA in Dec. while I’m in FL (by mistake now!! )

I haven’t seen a direct answer about if we can get these working now with SmartThings even if through IFTTT or wahtever.

Still would like to use the ones I have…

They will stop working once the Iris cloud is discontinued on March 31. So IFTTT will not be an option after that date. :disappointed_relieved:

I have already gotten my money from Iris but I was hopeing that somone had found a hack for these so we could do it without their cloud service, just using local WIFI.

Thaks for the quick reply!

So I suppose we just clog up the landfill with these iris devices now? Or hold onto them until someone provides a hack solution to connect them to another app. I’m surprised another company has not offered a connection solution as of yet.

Any updates on this? What if the ST hub could connect via Wifi while your phone is connected to the Iris Wifi also? Hmmm
