Hi, I was using the Lowes Iris platform and now that platform is being shut down. I wanted to start a thread for users of the Iris platform, and those in the Hubitat community that may be able to help us in a transition to Hubitat. For example what Lowes Iris devices will work with the Hubitat system?
Thank you all,
Welcome to Hubitat! There are probably half a dozen "Lowes Iris" threads already started in the community. Lots of great information in those threads.
Officially supported devices are listed here.
I'm a longtime Lowes IRIS customer looking to transition to Hubitat after Lowes officially announced that they will shutdown the IRIS Hub and service.
I'll be transitioning to Hubitat soon and would like to document some of the process and pose some questions to the community. I hope this post will help others in my position that are interested in the Hubitat platform.
What I know:
IRIS Brand Gen 1 devices are proprietary and are NOT compatible with other hubs. This includes but is not limit…
I got the hub on Friday and was excited to set it up immediately. It took over an hour to remove the devices from smarthings and add them to hubitat. I then created many of the automations I had working in smartthings using rule machine and all was ok-ish. Response times were definitely faster than with smartthings and being a tinkerer I was happy. But I soon ran into a couple problems that eventually sent me back to smartthings.

I was excited to go to local processing and more rules but the lack of support has got me frustrated.

I ordered new inserts (zigbee) cards for the locks and paired right away. I think the Zwave communication is poor no matter what hub I use...Iris,Smartthings, and Hubitat!

New to Hubitat? maybe. Hunting for a hub.
Definitely leaving IRIS, as its about to implode
I know more than I want to about Automation, from total DIY to a career at Honeywell at the campus level.
What caught my attention here in the forums was a discussion of an automated S/W switch with a 24/7 D/N... and all that with a DOTL. I can solder to component level, and wrote code to write code for me, and I know which end of the screwdriver to hold
As many of you know, Lowe’s has decided to shut down the Iris Smart Home Platform, effective March 31, 2019.
Many devices used with Iris Platform are compatible with Hubitat Elevation. For example, second and third generation of Iris branded devices are compatible out of the box. These devices are identified by the part number in the form of: 3xxx-L for second generation and iLxx_x for third generation, where x is a numeric value.
The original Iris sensors are not compatible with Hubitat Elev…
