Since its debut in July 2012, Iris has delivered the vision of the smart home to consumers by making home automation simple, affordable and scalable. Consumers can customize systems with a wide breadth of connected home devices to monitor and control their homes from a single, easy-to-use interface.  

"Our goal when creating Iris was to make home automation systems simple, affordable and able to grow with customers' evolving needs," said Kevin Meagher, Lowe's vice president and general manager, Smart Home. "Lowe's relationship with our vendors allows us to develop and deliver the broadest range of connected home solutions to make homes safer, more efficient and easier to manage."

Iris's newest product features, along with its expansive vendor relationships with brands consumers know and trust such as First Alert, Honeywell, Schlage, and Whirlpool, aim to deliver on the promise of the smart home today. The new Iris features will help consumers make their homes safer, more energy efficient and more easily managed; they include water shut-off valves that cut supply when a leak is detected, smart sprinkler systems to manage water consumption, the ability to link to smart meters to make energy consumption visible, additional energy saving devices and more convenient ways to program the home including a voice control feature, iVee, and universal garage door openers.

Since Iris's launch, Lowe's has broadened its offering, introduced a new connected home section in stores, and completed a nationwide rollout of products—creating a one-stop-shop for the connected home.

During the 2014 International CES, Lowe's will demonstrate new products and features and highlight partnerships daily at its booth located in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, Meeting Room S115.
