Lowes Iris Zigbee?
« on: April 24, 2015, 03:29:52 pm »
Did I read at some point that *none* of the Lowes Iris Zigbee devices are supported?

They have a coupon deal for 33% off their door/window sensor putting it at $13.19 plus tax.

Coupon Code 470000000001067

Every ZigBee Lowe's item in the wiki is listed as incompatible due to proprietary software. The door/window sensor is unfortunately on that list.

Only one that I know of that works is the First Alert smoke detector. They just put iris on the package for the ones sent to Lowes.

I thought the First Alert was using Z-Wave. So far Lowe's Iris products that rely on Z-Wave seem to work.

I think you are right and it is zwave. I just remember it had the iris logo on the front of the package.

Yes, the Iris brand covers both ZigBee and Z-Wave but for some reason they decided to do something "special" with their ZigBee gear. It is really too bad because Lowe's is the only convenient in-store source for home automation for me and the prices usually are OK for this stuff. But since it will not work and I do not want an Iris system itself...

hopefully that will change soon. It was announced at CES they are partnering with Centralite for new sensors.

They might still do something custom, we'll just have to wait and see.
