Ratings and Reviews
A great app, with improvements could be fantastic!
This is a great app for controlling smart LEDs. I'm using the LimitlessLED MiLight globes and the software is great. Puts everything just a touch away with the notification centre widget.
A couple of improvements though: the interface to set up new programs is a bit clunky (editing, having to always press continue and sometimes having to press accept, the icons are in odd places and settings are everywhere). Another example of this is there is a pencil button to edit the position of apps at the top of the screen but there are also three little dots to the right of each action, when pressed there is another pencil which does something totally different (it edits the action settings, something you'd expect from the pencil). I think that the continue buttons or accept buttons need to be different sizes and colours than the back buttons and other buttons so the interface is easier to use at a glance, though once you get the hang of it all it goes relatively quickly.
The main feature I'd like is the ability to have multi actions be able to be created without having to create each individual component first. The setup for multi actions is very convoluted and once done you need to manually go through each individual component and stop it from appearing on notification centre and the Apple Watch because in reality you only want the multi action there.
The watch app is good but the integrated voice control, while working, is usually much slower to use than just pressing the desired action.
All-in-all a very useful app that I would most definitely recommend if you have the MiLight bulbs, with a few updates this app will be perfect!
Just fantastic - Does exactly what it says
I've been using this app since version 1. It is excellent. A little fiddly to setup but after that it is perfect. I control all my lights using this app on my iPhone and iPad. I have not found any other app (and I have tried them all) that could even attempt to replace this.
Forget it if you have MiLight Bridge v6
If you bought the MiLight v6 bridge that came out 6mths ago now (to run all of their latest bulbs) then there's no use getting this app - it doesn't support it.
Home Remote have noted in their Feb release notes that they are working on it... but no news since.
