Now that the channel guide has been updated, the bottom frame advertises on-demand movies. We find many of these ads inappropriate - as we don't want to see erotic or demonic movie ads - especially considering the kids. We would like control over what we watch - including what is featured on this channel guide. This should be appropriate for the whole family.
hi, i subscribe to HM&C and have it set up to send me an e-mail when motion is detected on my indoor camera. well actually the motion-detection triggers recording, which triggers a notification email when recording ends, i think.....but my idea is about the content of that notification e-mail, because in it you state incorrectly:
"This message is a notification from your Verizon Home Monitoring and Control Service. Time: 05:30 PM, Saturday, June 7, 2014 (EST) "
this is incorrect because we are currently using eastern DAYLIGHT time (EDT)...and if stated as EST it should say 4:30pm EST as that is the same as 5:30 EDT....i know it is petty, but you guys are smart enough to understand daylight saving time.....now i live in california, and granted,
you could just state the time as "(ET)", but it would be great if you would go ahead and convert it to my local time zone (since that is how the times are listed when i view the recordings that your notification e-mail is informing me of....)
"This message is a notification from your Verizon Home Monitoring and Control Service. Time: 02:30 PM, Saturday, June 7, 2014 (PDT) "
i just think you ought to be consistent: if you list times in my local time on webpage of camera's recordings, you should do the same in notification email of same said recordings; if you are gonna specify 3 letters for your time zone designation, you should make sure you get the middle letter right, as in PDT, where the D stands for DAYLIGHT when appropriate......though 2 letters would work yearround (PT for Pacific Time, ET for Eastern Time, etc.).
It would have been nice if Verizon would let customers that are subcribing to the HMC service, if they choose to upgrade to Quantum TV the ablity to monitor your HMC services through the TV via a widget is now longer available. It was a disappointing shock after upgrading to Fios Quantum TV that we no longer have that widget. Most of us who have HMC has spent hundreds on the Zwave devices for this service and now I see the start of the pull back on Verizon part. Please do not stop supporting this service for us customers who have come to enjoy it not to mention the hundreds it cost us on equipment.
First Alert model ZCOMBO and ZSMOKE have recently come out with a Smoke/Co Det and a smoke det for the IRIS system sold by Lowes. You are able to pair it with the Verizon system but it says it is not compatible with Verizon and can not be controlled. Can Verizon please add this so we can control it? I would like to see the following controls with the device, if I am not home and my smoke det activates I would receive a notification, text message, email etc. I would also like the following it activates, to control all my lights to come on and unlock my front door to unlock in case I pass out the FD and police can get in easily. I would think this is a no brainer and money maker for Verizon.
My outdoor camera activates a light when motion is detected. When the mode times out and the light goes off, it re-triggers the motion sensor and turns the light back on. You should add an option to "Enable Mode Timeout Filter" that when enabled, blocks the re-trigger of a mode for about 10 seconds at the end of the mode time. The best thing about cameras and lights is the ability to let "visitors" know someone is home/watching. Currently this function is not possible.
I'd like to excecute a mode where as I near my house, I can run a mode that unlocks the door for more than 5 seconds. It would be nice that when your hands are full, the lights come on (that part works) and the door stays unlocked, say for 5 minutes. Geo location triggers would be great too. Get withing range of your house and selected lights come on. - DB
Add a sunset time in the dropdown box. It would also be nice to add a sunset + 1 Hr and sunrise - 1 Hr. Now when we want lights to turn on when it gets dark, we don't have to modify the mode when the time changes.
Verizon listened, but only followed through half way. You can now name codes (pins), but when the email notification comes in, it is stilled labeled Pin 1, Pin 2, Pin 3 was accessed. Unless you can remember who you assigned the poins to makes it half done. Thanks for listening. - DB
FortrezZ Water & Temperature Sensor. The system needs to allow the use of the FortrezZ Water and Temperature Sensor. FortrezZ indicates the device is compatible with Verizon but Verizon chooses to block the device. This is an important device in a home monitoring system. I had 3 separate water incidents last year. Verizon indicated to me the system does not support the device. We know it can be done so please make it happen.
