The Iris Smart Plug is a rebranded Centralite on/off plug which looks remarkably similar to the SmartThings SmartPower Outlet. In fact, this is a new version of the same hardware which adds a very interesting feature; A Z-Wave Plus repeater within the Zigbee HA 1.2 Plug.
Because this device has two different wireless protocols within it, it will effectively be treated as two separate devices within SmartThings. The following is how you will need to pair each device and get it working within your system:
First: The Zigbee Outlet
In order to pair the Zigbee Outlet, first add the devicetype at the bottom of this post to your IDE. Once you have the devicetype added and published, open the SmartThings app and hit ‘Connect New Device’ within the Marketplace. After SmartThings starts searching for a new device, plug the Iris Smart Plug into the wall, and wait for it to be discovered by the hub. It should pair as an ‘Iris Smart Plug’. If you are having trouble getting it to pair follow the ‘Zigbee Reset Instructions’ below.
Optional Step: If you want to have this plug run locally, go into your IDE and switch the devicetype for the plug to the ‘SmartPower Outlet’ devicetype.
Second: The Z-Wave repeater
Once you have the Zigbee Plug added into SmartThings you can go back to add the Z-wave repeater. In order to do this, first start the pairing mode by selecting ‘Connect New Device’ within the Marketplace in the SmartThings app. Once the hub is searching for a new device, hold down the button on the front of the Iris Smart Plug until the light begins to blink, this should only take a few seconds. Some users have reported than holding down the button doesn’t work and instead they needed to tap the button 8 times rapidly in order to get it into pairing mode. Once the light is blinking SmartThings should discover the repeater as a ‘Z-Wave Device’. This is the proper devicetype for the repeater. It will show On/Off and Dimming functionality within the device in the SmartThings app but you can ignore this, it doesn’t actually do anything and is something extra within the default devicetype.
At this point you should have two different devices added to your home, one Zigbee switch (which also acts as a Zigbee repeater) and one Z-Wave repeater.
ZIGBEE RESET INSTRUCTIONS: If the Zigbee portion will not pair you may need to reset the plug. In order to do this, unplug the Iris Smart Plug, hold down the button and plug it back in while continuing to hold the button. When the light first comes on, release the button and you should now be in pairing mode. Open the ‘Connect New Device’ screen and it should instantly find the Iris Smart Plug.
