I think I’ve found a use for it in my linen closet.
I just ordered mine. Got the discount and free shipping. It will be here in 2-3 days. If it is still available I would be interested in exchanging devices.
In the interest of this thread not following the fate of its predecessor let’s please table the discussion here on that particular Lowe’s deal. As a recap, the deal is for the Iris Home Automation Safe and Secure Kit and the Iris Home Automation Comfort and Control Kit. You get 40% off with promo code 470000000013036 potentially until February 8. Please start a new thread and post a link to it here if there is interest in continuing detailed dialogue on this specific deal to keep it easy for folks to post and find new deals.
After ordering around 5 PM I received an email from the store saying they don’t have the item in stock and they canceled my order. It is still listed on the website for 50% off so I’m heading there today to find it along with a print out of the price.
Hope they will still honor.
Are you all able to get Iris stuff working with Smartthings? Have things changed since:
The new revisions of the iris sensors (in the purple cardboard box, not the plastic blister packaging) work with ST.
There are several discussions about the 2nd gen devices working with ST. Do a quick search and you’ll find them (@btk linked a great one) . In fact, about 30 minutes ago I just added another smart plug. I use a ton of the motion sensors, several open/close sensors, and a button or two.
Do you know if these are dimmer switches? When you switch them off and on do they go from 0 to 100 instantly or are they like the other GE switches that slowly go from 0-100 (I would assume instant if they aren’t dimmers.)
The reason I ask, is I have Phillips hue bulbs installed in 4 can lights in my kitchen but i’m looking to have smart switches in there as well because it’s annoying to have the normal flip switch always on. Does anyone know how well it would work to have both smart switches and phillips hue bulbs? I have certain scenes where I want to have individual control of lightbulbs and sometimes I just want to easily be able to turn them all on from a switch. Or will this cause a lot of my scenes to get out of sync / other issues.
Detailed discussion of the use of smart switches with smart bulbs in the following topic (this is a clickable link). It should answer your questions.
I too was able to use the coupon code for the Home Automation & Comfort kit and got free shipping to my home.
I think this is a pretty killer deal device…
dual relay module for 2-gang switches
It is comparable to the Monoprice dual-relay but it’s out of stock right now so this is next best thing.
Does that present as two separate switches in ST?
Correct, and reports two separate statuses instantaneously without polling.
Just ordered two packs of these for a total of 4 devices:
I’ll let everyone know how it goes once they arrive.
This will at least do couple bedrooms and a couple of bathrooms.
The 45637 is on/off with no fade. Instant on instant off, Just installed one an hour ago
Well when I had Wink the average delay was 5-10 second from the door opening until the lights came on.
On a good day the 30 second autolock would have locked the door again before the lights came on that were triggered by the unlocking.
So I can completely understand why they are thrilled with a 2 second delay on triggers
My Home Depot is clearing out the TCP connected bulbs. I had TCP a few months ago and the connection was spotty but I think it improved a bit. If you already have TCP these would make more sense.
Just noticed that Menards has a sale on Insteon products, including $20 off on the camera (Model Number: 75790WH | Menards® SKU: 3580016, $54.97)
I was able to score an Iris Garage Door Opener for $55 at my local Lowes. Took me trying 4 stores but I finally got one. They are ‘on sale’ for $89 right now. Plenty more in my area actually.
If you plan to control the TCP lights with ST I would stay away from this. If you just want TCP to use independently with their own app they are pretty reliable.
