Re: Iris Release Notes: App Release 2.3

Thank you for touch ID support however I think I speak for most of us when I say this isn't exactly what we were looking for... It's great if we "log out" of the app that we can use touch ID to get back in, but I want the app to lock everytime I exit (or after a set amount of time).... I could be wrong but at least this is a step towards that direction...

Re: Iris Release Notes: App Release 2.3

I agree that having to use Touch ID each time I go back into the app (if app was left running in the background or force killed) is what I was hoping for not just the initial logon which I rarely ever have to do, I think I've done that 2 times in the last year before playing with the Touch ID setup yesterday.  I was hoping to use the Touch ID setup as an app lock like the app pin the v1 app had.

Thanks for a great update.  The GDO as a participating device in rules and the duration to less than 30 minutes is huge!

 

Now all we need is geofencing and local processing to put the platform over the top.

I like it the way it is.

Re: Iris Release Notes: App Release 2.3

This is all OK but I was hoping that the landscape view would come back that was taken away with the 2.2 update. Also hoping to control devices besides a water valve when a leak is detected so I could turn off a dish washer or cloths washer.

Re: Iris Release Notes: App Release 2.3

My mistake. I see I can turn off or on a device when water is detected. The only improvement would be if I could pick which one of my water sensors did that. Right now if any water detector is activated it will turn off or on a device. I would like to do it by individual water sensors. Right now this is an improvement though.

 

I would still love to see landscape view come back for my iPad. Why was it ever taken out. It worked since V2 came out and was taken out with the release of 2.2 and did not return with 2.3

Re: Iris Release Notes: App Release 2.3

when my sink is clogged and the washing machine is pumping out water your sensor will not shut down the washing machine.
yes the water is shut off but the washing machine still pumps out water.
is there a rule for this feature?

Advanced Member

Re: Iris Release Notes: App Release 2.3

If you have a smart plug running the washer, there is a rule available to shut off a switch/plug.  "smoke detected, turn toaster off"

 

Water alarm was available for trigger, and all my switches and smart plugs were available to turn off.
