App mostly works could be a lot better

With panel ‘lightsys’ connected to my internet router with an Ethernet cable, good Virgin broadband ie over 300MB down, good wifi all over the house, the app still doesn’t always show connected to the panel. Sometimes bottom left is red which I tend to think is at the Risco ie FreeControl cloud end. As all other Xbox laptop using family household is working fine.

It is good to set when away from the house. I can set the panel at night while my older Son can return at silly o’clock and unset using the app on his phone without disturbing everyone, then reset it when his teenage brain remembers.

It doesn’t always work that way occasionally the slider returns to the previous position ie it won’t set it unset for a couple of attempts.

To interrogate alarm events and any faults it is very good. Easier than finding on the keypad.

Glad I installed two keypads one downstairs and one in master bedroom as I would not like to rely on the app to switch off the alarm quickly. Not that it goes off much.

Overall ok but plenty of room for improvement. Perhaps change the name of the App when you come to charge for this App. NotFreeControl ?

Not the best

We’ve used the app for the last couple of years but more recently it has seemed more “buggy”. The control pad will say one thing on the phone but the physical alarm pad will say another. Usually this ends up with us having to switch off the alarm on the physical alarm pad instead, which then of course renders this app useless.

The app is generally ok, quote responsive in my my experience anyway. The only issue I had was 3 weeks after installing the app it would no longer use face recognition upon opening and then prompted for a password, upon entering the correct password it kept saying it was incorrect.
I did ask support whether there was a way to schedule partial or full alarm, it’s been several weeks so I guess they are too busy or don’t deem my request important enough.
