So, first off I was walking down the aisle of Lowe's and guess what I seen? A new Iris hub! This looks very appealing. It's Wi-Fi, I couldn't believe it, so I decided to look it up. Here's what I found:
The fact this one is Wi-Fi, I'm ready right now. Great idea! Speaker, LED light ring, rechargable battery, this is the upgrade Iris needs! I am thrilled. Only thing is it does look like a little work would be involved in switching over, but I'm not worried about it, but for others looking: https://www.irisbylowes.com/support?guideTitle=How-Do-I-Upgrade-or-Transition-to-a-New-Hub%3F&guideI...
Has anyone made the switch yet?
I did a couple of weeks ago, so far so good.
