  1. I am looking for some third party hardware to add into my project. I came across this and am intrigued. Search found nothing. But if you notice in the code for the product, it appears to be a Zigbee Pro product. Anyone know if these will integrate into our system without another hub from SmartThings or otherwise? Thanks, Snip
  2. Probably need two threads for this, but combining for now... First issue, my Yale lock is totally scratched up. I've had it four years now. Any ideas on polishing it back up? It works just fine, just lots of fine scratches. Is the toothpaste method ok on this lock? Second issue, this is a bigger concern for me... there have been occasions where the locks will not lock itself after 60 seconds. Just stays unlocked. No rhyme or reason behind these instances. Is there a way I can find out why in a log somewhere, or get a notification if the door doesn't lock? I have no indications that the batteries are bad. Replaced, and have still seen this happen on a few occasions.
  3. The notifications have stopped. Happy/Sad.
  4. Bummer ;-) Thanks for the detail!
  5. And now I am getting txt/sms messages... I won't look a gift horse in the mouth, but I don't like the idea of my system being compromised either. I'd rather lose the benefit to know what is going on here. I cannot access my system remotely, btw. That still does not work.
  6. Here are some screenshots. I am running version 2.5.3.429171-res.
  7. Yep, I did. Confirmed that I do not have 4Sight -- but under notifications, there they are! Incredible.
  8. I haven't had a 4Sight subscription for over two years now, but overnight I started getting email notifications that I had programmed when I did have a 4Sight subscription a couple years ago. Anyone else notice this as well? I am just getting email notifications, not TXT/SMS ones. Thinking some sort of internal update was pushed to 4Sight servers that caused this?
  9. Thanks for that suggestion to do the reset. It worked! Zero issues now. And there is bonus here, too. I walked the house and reset all the dimmers with LEDs. I had a sneaking suspicion they'd dim better. I was only able to get to 10% before. Now I am hitting 4%. Super happy!
  10. Replaced 8 incandescent 40 watt bulbs with 8 Phillips LED Warm Glow 40 watt equivalents (11 watts each bulb). One of the new LED bulbs shattered, so I left the socket open. The lights would just flash when turned on, the switch would reset and the lights would stay out. I placed one of the incandescent lights into the remaining socket to see what would happen -- no issues. All 7 LEDs and the 1 incandescent behave normally. Can easily dim the lights as well, some slight flicker and noise at 10% or below. No issues with the switch. Received the replacement for the shattered LED today and put it in and the lights will all turn on and dim, but there are two problems. First, the switch resets itself each time I turn on the lights. Every fourth or fifth time I turn on the lights, they will blink once and then stay on. Clearly this isn't an adaptive phase dimmer. Not sure what model it is. I have LEDs elsewhere in the house with the older non-adaptive phase dimmers. At one point I swapped out a couple rooms that had FEIT LED flood lights because they were occasionally causing the breaker to flip. Swapped those with Phillips LED Warm Glows and haven't had any issues since. So, a couple questions... 1. Given no problems with mix of one incandescent and 7 LEDs, am I causing any harm to the switch or any other potential problem? I get mixed results from searching Google on intermixing. 2. I am guessing that when all 8 LED are installed, they are not drawing enough current causing the switch to soft reset each time the lights are turned on. What are my potential problems here? 3. Should I try a different bulb manufacturer, or swap the 40 watt equivalents for 60 watt ones (13 watts)? I'd swap out the dimmer itself, but my previous dealer quit the business, and efforts to find a new one that would do one-off jobs/non-major project jobs, have been fruitless. I am stuck with the system I have.
  11. WTB: Axxess Doorbell Button

    I have a barely used one I can sell. Includes a battery kit. Let me know if you are still looking.
  12. WTB: Color change kit for Dimmer LDZ-101-x

    I am looking to buy a bunch of these too. Even my dealer has trouble sourcing them for some reason.
