Lowe's Iris Sensors (New CentraLite models)

Supposedly the Monoprice/GoControl one does based on the jumper setting (it comes with the jumper), but I’ve never tried it:

My wife wants one and only one basic automation achievable thru multi’s or contact’s. Did I remember to put down the potty lid? I think that’s a reason for me to get another sensor. :wink:

Ha! Yeah, glad my wife doesn’t read these posts! Between her, and all daughters, I’ve been trained already…

I found myself at Lowes last night and I don’t even need anymore door/window sensors. I just wanted to see if I could get the deal :smile:

how do you connect the motion sensor to smart things? every time i try it says just sits on identifying device.

Seem if its sitting in your things list as a generic Thing. If it is then log in to the IDE and edit the sensor to be a ST Motion sensor.

There is a bug in the iOS app and maybe the android app that won’t show new devices until you force closes the app and restart it. Then go under add new device again and it will be listed under un-configured devices.

Went back to lowes today planning to pick up more motions and the price jumped up as others have already mentioned. 27.48. I wish I would have cleaned them out right away like I did with the contact sensor

What device type would do this? I have the GoControl kit and would loooove to modify the time. Also i dont believe mine shows battery stats. Its listed as an Aeon Multi Sensor.

So, just to clarify, both new sensors have temperature sensors, correct? I’ve been looking for some cheaper temperature sensors and these might fit the bill. If they both do have temperature sensors, any feedback on how accurate they are?

How accurate is the temperature reading on the contact sensor?

I know you’ve only had the contact sensor installed for 2 days now but could you keep us informed of the battery life and how quickly it drains?

This is the one I am using: https://github.com/constjs/SmartThings-Devices/blob/master/monoprice_motion_sensor.device.groovy

After making the necessary preference changes remove the sensor and re-add it for the changes to propagate to the device…

I’ve only paired one of the each of the sensors so far the contact sensor temp seems to be on par with my thermostat, I had to offset the motion 4 degrees

I guess you didn’t get the deal? There’s no mention of a bag full of sensors. :smile:

I checked 2 stores in the Raleigh, NC area, and nothing hanging with the Iris stuff and nothing stuck up on shelves in storage. On top of all the rain we’re getting, and no new stuff, today was a crappy day…

I got mine at the Burlington NC Lowes, so they should be there soon.

They actually weren’t out, I asked someone who said they didn’t have them in yet. As I was leaving another employee walked up and said they got new Iris item the previous evening. They opened the boxes while I was there.

Oh man, I just drove through there yesterday on the way back from Georgia via i85!

I miss my Charlotte years in NC working as a vendor/contractor for Microsoft. They didn’t have anything called iris then. :wink:

Charlotte is home for most of my family, and I use to work for IBM a long, long, time ago. They certainly didn’t have anything back then like Iris or ST, and the “cloud” was the weather… Speaking of… If the weather wasn’t going to continue to get worse, I’d hit all the Lowes in my area looking for these.

Well, if you come back to visit this weekend, you might want to bring a boat. :smile:

Back on topic - has anyone heard anything else about availability of the new Hue Dimmer? Last I heard it was supposed to be out toward the end of September, but it’s still nowhere to be found. :frowning:
