The members on the forum noticed a new release, so I’m just putting it out there that it’s available. Please feel free to provide comments on your upgrade experience, and anything new you may have discovered. Thanks!
There’s seems to be an hub update today where you’ll notice the following message displayed on the Iris web portal, but as of 6:50am the hub update isn’t available for me so I’ll like to ask everyone for their feedback on the forum once you tried the update. Thanks!
I’m assuming most of you already know there was a hub update in the morning of 9/2 and normally I would try to be one of the first to upgrade and post what’s new, but it seems the upgrade wasn’t available to me in the early morning and I finally just getting a chance to post this now after getting everyone to bed.
So what’s new with this version?
Well besides the general statement about performance enhancement and bug fixes. You should notice on the device page that there’s an extra “AO Smith Water Heater” listed as coming soon.
AO Smith Water Heater is the Wi-Fi device which will allow you to connect Iris to a line of energy smart electric water heater that are available since 2011. From playing with the setting under test drive mode on the iPhone, it seems you can set the water heater to the following three settings. Schedule, hold and the option for “Energy Smart” mode.
I would really like to tell you when this water heater module is available for sale but I don’t have that information. However I can mention to you that the glass break sensor and water shut-off valve which were introduced from the last hub update will be for sale around October.
That’s it for now. If you notice something different about this hub update please feel free to comment on this post to let everyone else know. Thanks!
Today a new update for the Iris hub has been released for version 4.02r04.
From the devices page you may see a few new items or removed label for “Coming soon”.
A new hub update is release today for version 4.01r16
From what I hear this update is specific to address the indoor camera connection stability for it’s wireless and Ethernet connection to the Iris Smart Hub.
You will also notice an upgrade available for your indoor camera when you view your devices page.
However there is no upgrade available being shown for the outdoor camera.
For those who don’t have a camera, you will still see the hub update available for you too.
Thanks to Dan and Shawn who spotted the new link under the “What’s New” section that was just posted yesterday.
It looks like the update to the Iris hub up is coming soon. I hear it can be as early as this morning or by the end of this week. If you see the update being available please comment to let everyone know it’s up. Thanks!
