Iris going away?

Re: Iris going away?

According to several (Bloomberg, etc.) Lowes has announced that it is dropping the Iris line and getting out of the smart field as far as it's own name. That is sad because I have room after room of dedicated Iris products. I am now moving over to GE zwave plus products which work well with Iris and Alexa. If I have to I may move to Samsung Smartthings, which Lowes also sells but it is terrible that with so much invested they would **edited** off Iris. Who would support updates now? Of course they dumped Jimmy Johnson and closed stores in Canada, California and Mexico as a "cost saving measure".

Re: Iris going away?

They just released a 3rd Gen hub along with the news that they are getting out of the home automation and are looking to sell Iris.

Not sure if I should buy just yet since lowes looks to stop support and sell off Iris to some other company.

Iris contact sensors

Lowe's recently had what I was told was 3rd generation contact sensors on sale. The ad said "while supplies last". Not sure why it says that if this is the latest version? Belo's number is 10231 7 9. The prior version is 877-6399. They look a little bit different. Is there any real difference between the two? One of them is advertised as "2 Sensor"
