Glad to hear that everything went well for you.
I got my Nexia bridge on Tuesday but have not had time to install it yet. I home my install goes as smoothly.
I also received a Z-Wave LED Light Bulb from them. Because I have a older home, Z-Wave light switches are not an option, I've tried. really excited about finally getting things working correctly.
I think that I now will have my HM&C separate from my cable service, I will drop all my Verizon services. I know that ALL providers have bad customer service, it almost seems to be a requirment. But I almost never had to call Verizon about my other services where I was calling VHM&C practically on a weekly basis. To the point that I know the names of all the techs and supervisers, just sad!
I've learned that I should not combine too many service under one provider. In this case, the inability to access the cameras, which I bought and paid for, really creams my corn. And does it bother anyone else that Verizon would not give us the code to our own equipment but that provided it to a third party? Something does not seem right about that action.
Oh well, not a problem shortly.
u soon-to-be-happy-camper!!!!! do your old sercomm indoor cams still have motion activation after the nexiahome firmware update? do they have audio now? and yes it burns me too , that evilrison , i mean, verizon, won't give us admin access to the cams....hey did you ever notice that using the spellcheck here , in verizon's forums (powered by lithium.com?) will flag "verizon" as being misspelled, **bleep**, "sad" is too nice of a description, but gotta stay nonconfrontational...............................i saw on nexiahome faq page that you get 4 minutes of recording time included in the $9.99(....is that a typo and it should be 4 hours per month, or could they mean 4 minutes per recording?
I think there was some confusion in the FAQ page. A standard Nexia subscription comes with 250 MB of video storage to record video. The video can be accessed from both your web portal at mynexia.com as well as via the Nexia app. You can record up to 4 minutes of video per recording. It isn't 4 minutes of total recording. If you require more recording storage you can upgrade to up to 2 additional gigabytes for $1.99 per gigabyte. Make sense?
I've been so busy the last few days that I haven't had a chance to install my new Nexia Bridge. Hopefully tonight is the night I can cut the cord with Verizon.
I have several of their controler boxes which I've picked up with other eBay/CL camera purchases. Maybe I'll take them out into a field and have a smash party like when they smashed the fax machine in the movie Office Space.
The motin sensing function is not avaliable once the cameras are moved to Nexia. The sound feature is not avaliable. I've browsed the user forum and it seems that Nexia actually works on issues, features and products that are requested.
Just the indoor cameras. Never purchased the other cameras. I did not want to spend the money to purchase the outdoor cameras not knowing what was going to happen with Verizon. I thought I be able to pick up a few on the cheap with Verizon shutting down the HMC, but it seems all z wave prices are at a premium.
