Lowe's Iris Version 1 or 2 Hub in Home Assistant

Has anyone tried connecting to Lowe’s Iris version 1 or 2 hubs?

I’d like to use my now discontinued V1 hub as a bridge for zigbee similar to the Wink/SmartThings/Vera hubs on here…

I’ve successfully rooted the V1 hub and determined that it runs BusyBox Linux and the Iris platform was built around the old AlertMe API. SSH can also be enabled on the device but that is about as far as I’ve gotten thus far.

Background on Lowe’s Iris:
They recently forced all customers off of the Version 1 platform and onto V2. This required shipping all current customers new V2 hubs and then they forced customers to move to the new platform before June 30, 2016. The V1 platform was retired/disabled on July 1, 2016. This resulted in some angry customers as you can imagine.

Since then, I discovered Home Assistant and the great community that has been growing incredibly fast…
I started thinking that the Iris V1 hub still has a great set of zwave/zigbee radios and additionally, the Iris platform offers some devices that are not offered by Wink/Vera/etc. such as the zigbee hose controller.

These “legacy” V1 items are either being sold at great discounts or some people will just give them away as they have switched to SmartThings or whatever…

If we could leverage the old (or new) Lowe’s Iris hubs here, it would be one more device that we could use as a home assistant bridge…particularly useful for connecting very stubborn “big box store” zigbee devices.

If someone successfully got the V1 Iris hub working as a home assistant hub, we could all get these things for practically free since Lowe’s literally abandoned the V1 platform.

It also appears that there might be promise in unlocking the V2 hubs as well, as this post suggests.

If anyone is interested in hacking on some Iris hubs, let me know. I might be able to get you a V1 or V2 hub to test with.

Moved to Feature Requests

I would love more info! I have at least one Gen 1 hub just sitting. Several Gen2’s as well.

Is this not the same as the insteon hub? will the iris hub not work on HA?

I don’t think so, but if you have a link to more info I’ll try to mess with it…

Some additional resources:

What is Iris?
https://www.centralite.com/products/jilia-pi

Some web control functionality may be promising (still cloud dependent)

This may help you with V2.

It seems that the SSH is not installed If you need anything else let me know :slight_smile:

Also the Web Portal has been updated a lot from that video.

Thanks! I checked out the portal again today, it looks pretty good! What would be perfect is to be able to interface the Iris to home assistant as a local bridge, via python or even thru local http requests, perhaps. This way we could continue to use Iris devices but control them within hass, similar to how Wink and Smart Things hubs are used.

experimenting with the HUSBZB-1 USB stick … could be promising. More to come!

Any luck on getting Lowe’s devices to work with HA?

Sadly, I was unable to get Iris Gen-1 devices to communicate with the HUSBZB.
Folks are reporting success with the Gen-2 devices, but that defeats the purpose for my purchase, as it goes …

Of note, I did find this project.

The author is interested in finding people who would be interested in helping merge the work into hass. It is based on the XBee controller, which is already supported in hass. Ideally, if we could round up some smart folks to get the project forked to work with the HUSBZB then we would have a solution.

I’ll mention @russell here in hopes he will see this and join the cause! :slight_smile:

If they’re not ZHA compliant, they’re not in my immediate plans to support. That said, I do plan on having some way of supporting “quirks” – something along the lines of how the smartthings device handlers work.

Any idea how I can get my hands on some of the Iris gen 1 devices (for a reasonable price)?

Hello All,
Thank you @automateit for the mention and the invitation to this forum.

I am the author of the PyAlertMe library (https://github.com/jamesleesaunders/PyAlertMe), the aspiration for this project is to create a set of Python classes which can be used to emulate the Iris (AlertMe) hub or devices using a Raspberry Pi connected to an XBee module. The intention for this is to help those who have a collection of Gen 1 Iris sensors, plugs etc collecting dust due to the Gen 1 Iris platform being switched off. Firing up a Pi+XBee+PyAlertMe you have a simple replacement hub up and working in minutes.

Rather than use the HA Zigbee standard, AlertMe opted to develop their own Zigbee profile. Alter much Zigbee sniffing and reverse engineering, with the help of Desert Home (http://www.desert-home.com/2014/02/raspberry-pi-and-lowes-iris-smart-switch.html) I have managed to work out most of the way the AlertMe Zigbee profile works.

I am still tinkering with the PyAlertMe library (it is still not fully polished) and was not really intending to publicise it just yet, but when @automateit contacted me suggesting there may be people interested in using and contributing to this project I jumped at the offer.

I am in the UK and so have developed this using branded AlertMe Hub, Sensors and Plugs but I am led to believe that Iris is pretty much AlertMe devices re-badged so should work exactly the same (I would be interested to hear otherwise). Here in the UK the AlertMe platform is still alive (just!) so the hubs still work (but it is rapidly being superseded by younger cousin ‘Hive’ from British Gas the new owners of AlertMe (which incidentally I believe has just re-launched in the US)). Hive is exactly the same hardware so I am hoping that one day the PyAlertMe library may also work with Hive.

I confess, I am really not a fully fledged Python coder (this is my first Python project) so the quality of the code may not be great and I may have some weird ways of implementing parts but it works! I also have a little way to go with documenting this library (no surprises there!).

So, if there is anyone on here who would be willing to help me on this project I would be extremely happy.

I think (hope) the way I have developed PyAlertMe means it could in the future be integrated with Home Assistant also (again, for this, I would appreciate any guidance on how to create a good interface with the PyAlertMe classes).

As well as simulating a Iris Hub you can also use the PyAlertMe class to simulate a Iris device also, for example you can also emulate a Iris SmartPlug or Sensor which will connect to a hub. The use of this is that you could create your own custom sensors which the Iris hub will believe are ‘real’ sensors.

Thanks again, I hope I can be of use contributing to Home Assistant.

Hi @russell
I have a good collection of various AlertMe (Iris) devices I am willing to send a couple of spares across the pond if any use to you to play with? (Although to be honest it may be easier for you to source them locally on ebay).
Jim

Anyone interested?

If you’re in the US I can prob send you devices …
I have a smart outlet, one motion and one contact sensor that i’m willing to donate to “the cause” and also have a spare V2 hub and can prob get a V1 hub too…

Good to see someone else has run across the work of Desert Home. I might be able to try to help if interested. I have to see what Gen1 devices I still have. I have a few xBee S2B’s, and at least one or two Iris Gen 1, and at least two Iris Gen 2 hubs.

Hi @jonathanweinberg Excellent! Thank you, I am very much interested in your help! Once you have dug out the bits and had a snoop around my code give me a shout with any ideas, comments etc. Please feel free to raise any pull requests you see fit I am very much open up to any ideas on how to make this library useful.

Like I say, this is my first python library project so the code may not be brilliant, but I do hope I have evolved the great work of desert home further towards a more reusable library.

I guess I had better polish off the readme with a little more info to help you.

I have polished off some more of the PyAlertMe code. Possibly of most interest to some of you may be the pyalertme/zigbee.py file in which I have detailed all the AlertMe (Iris) zigbee profile frames.

@jonathanweinberg If you do get a chance to peek, let me know if you need me to document anything in more detail.

@russell I don’t know if there is anything of use in here to intergrate with Bellows? BTW the offer still stands if you want me to post you a couple of Iris sensors (in exchange for any guidance you can give me about PyAlertMe.

If not directly of use to Bellows or Home Assistant I hope there may be some interesting code should people want to steal it and integrate into other code.

All the best,
Jim
