Batteries Dying Rapidly

Anyone seeing their devices chewing though batteries at a quicker rate? Seems when the contact sensor dropping off problem started I noticed batteries going dead in several devices also. One of them was the keypad in the kitchen. So these batteries are only a week or two old and I got this, this AM “Your Keypad - Kitchen's battery level at Home is low. Change your batteries as soon as possible.” I looked yesterday and the battery was 60% which was surprising since I just replaced the batteries and now it’s dead? I have several other devices that report below 50% that I don’t think should be.

Re: Batteries Dying Rapidly

I really haven't noticed, but I have so many devices it's difficult to track.  I do know that the two keypads I changed a few weeks ago are still at 100%

I don't see an actual perecntage number when I look at the dashboard.  Plus, I didn't know that warnings pop up.  Do I have to set something up with the battery notications/pushes?  I don't turn on my phone that much nor do I look at the app that often.  Or is this a version one feature missing from version 2?

Looks like another one dead. This is getting expensive. Your Back Door's battery level at Home is low. Change your batteries as soon as possible.

Can't get into that website.  It's asking me to login.  However, I apparently do not have a log in nor do I see a register link.  It's a dead site for those who haven't registered in the past.  I run Firefox on Ubuntu 16.04, if that is the problem I don't know.

It uses your Iris user name and password.

Thanks, it worked!  It is scary to see keyfobs down to 66% after only receiving them a few days ago.  Smart button just received yesterday and down to 86%.  Intyeresting that the keypad, siren, and smoke detecotr are doing so much better then the rest of the devicves.  I can see why people are concerned.

It was built by @thegillion before Iris released their official website.  You can read his faq here:
