Re: British Gas have been in contact!

Had a letter through the post last week to say that the Safe & Secure service was being switched off in 30 days from the date of the letter. Letter was dated 9th November, so that makes Saturday 9th December 2017 the switch-off day for S&S - I think we can guess that it'll more likely be the end of ...

Re: AlertMe have been in contact!

I did a restart with the pin but nothing changed - still flashing red ... If the Hub is looking for a configuration, it'll never find it. Looks to me that once the Hubs request an update, they discard their original configuration expecting to receive the latest version from the server, but the serv...

Re: AlertMe have been in contact!

Anyone else seeing this as well? Yup, mine noticed the server was gone a couple of days ago. End of the line for that little guy. Ah, did all of your rules stop working too? In which case, I'm guessing it called out for an update, the update failed because there was nobody to respond and now it'll ...

Re: ALERTME system

I'm afraid there is no simple alternative right now. Your best bet would be to take the offer of a Hive system, or contact support@alertme.com if you haven't seen an email about it.

Re: What other security/ alarm systems are you considering?

So far as I'm aware, you're correct. I'd already started disassembling my system to test with the XBee modules, so my Hub no longer has any working rules, so I can't confirm for certain. However, anything pre-programmed into the Hub should continue working - it just won't have any connectivity to th...

Re: Implementing a dummy server?

It's all happening here and here at the moment. Lots to do, but it's possible.

Re: Alertme camera & spares

Have a check for the IP address of the camera on your router. Once you've found that out (it'll likely be 192.168.1.3 or similar) visit that address with your browser - it should open a web page where you can twiddle with the configuration.

Re: What other security/ alarm systems are you considering?

I'd say if you're looking for the security side of things, Hive is definitely not the place to be right now. I think they'll get there eventually, but it's certainly not their focus, so that's probably out for you. The most similar system with probably decent longevity would be the new Nest Secure p...

Re: AlertMe Devices and the XBee

The honest answer is "I don't know". I just bought the XB24CAWIT-001 and re-flashed it with the ZigBee firmware using their XCTU software. Maybe there's something different about the models you linked to; or perhaps they just come pre-flashed with the ZigBee firmware. If in doubt, grab the one that ...

AlertMe Servers Down

Just a little notification that as of now, the AlertMe servers have gone offline.



RIP, api.alertme.com - nice working with you!

For the time being Safe & Secure is still online, but I'd guess that will be shut down by the end of November.
