IRIS lighting module
Reviewed on 09/28/2015
The reviews on this were terrible but considering Zwave is fairly new i thought i'd give it a chance. They linked up to my IRIS system very easy. After they were paired - i moved them to their final location on the outside of the house...quite a ways from my IRIS hub The system struggled to connect so I moved an outlet module that i had ( which also works as a Zigbee range extender) and the connection was re established and they work great.
would be nice if they made a 5" flood lamp as that is most of what I have but the 4" is a good option in that absence.
The on / off / dim all works well.
Couple of things IRIS could do to improve.
- Allow users to send th eon command at a pre set dimmer level....would really help for scene control
- Multi color LED lighting is getting common. There are other Zwave controllers that offer the ability to control the color....that would be very handy feature.
But overall....not bad price...hopefully will continue to lower prices as more people adopt wave
Its a light bulb

The best thing about this is that you can program it to go on and off whenever you want. However, I will only be able to do that for the first 2 months as that is an "advanced" feature that is part of the $9.99 a month plan. I don't have that many Iris products that would make that expense worth while. Once the 2 month trial period is up it will just be another light bulb that I can turn on and off remotely. The scheduling feature goes away.
