Since moving in with me and my family a few weeks ago, Iris, Lowe’s smart home management system, and I have been getting acquainted. She’s a good housemate. The products that Iris introduced to our house have been easy and surprisingly fun to use. I kind of feel like the wizard of our home nerve center.
What is Iris? The Iris Home Management System offers home monitoring (via door and window contact sensors, motion sensors, and alarm monitoring) and energy control (via smart plugs and a hooked-up thermostat)–all of which means that you can monitor, customize, and control these devices from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Adjust the lights, arm your security system, and turn on the heat on your way home.
See The Iris Diaries, Part I: The Move-In to read about my installation of Lowe’s Iris Smart Home Management System.
