    Just came back up for me. Can’t complain – first time I have ever noticed down. Just scared me because I had just done a hub update a few hours before and I thought my hub was originally the problem.

    My thoughts exactly. This is the first significant outage of the Iris system in a very long time. Despite all of it’s current limitations, Lowe’s has done a great job of maintaining the availability of the Iris system.
