I just looked and it does show as a un-certified device, but it does work.
As an aside, I moved the sensor to SmartThings for awhile, but it was not very reliable. It is on the door of my shop and I have it turn on the shop lights when the door opens. About every week or so I would find my shop lights on or would get a message while we were away somewhere saying my shop door had opened. I could open and shut door and it would be fine for awhile. I also adjusted it two or three times. I have since put it back on Iris and it has been rock solid for over a month now, not one false opening since.
The GE Link bulbs are not currently officially supported as you may have discovered. We continuously evaluate potential products for Iris certification so it's possible they may be supported down the road but I can't promise anything right now.
Can't get Irirs to recognize GE/Jasco dimmer 14299. Box says it works with Iris and it will instantly pair but then just says it's not supported and performs no functions. Tried unpairing/repairing about 10 times.
If there was ever a device where it is necessary to be within 10 feet of the Iris Hub when pairing, its any of the GE devices. You have to bring the router and hub to the house wired device on a long telephone cord or coax cable, depending on your specific Internet source connection type. I have several GE devices right now that need to be re-paired due to the cold weather rendering them useless.
I have had the same experience this winter with a GE outlet and a GE switch in my shed both have gone offline and come back multiple times this winter, sometimes staying offline for days, and it seems to be temperature related. The GE switch and two Iris SmartPlugs I have in the garage (partially uninsulated but connected to the house so warmer) have all been fine even when it was -14F outside.
