Great improvements in theory

I think this ap is what most people have been waiting for but it does seem to be buggy. Just to reiterate some of the feedback that has already been highlighted by other users, the login process is not smooth at all and sometimes I find myself doubting what has been set. I have multiple areas in my panel but when I click on area B, Area A and Area B tries to arm as though I press the button the fob whereby there is a timer to get out of the house. This never used to happen with the old HomeControl+ app as it was silent until the alarm was set. At the moment I have reverted back to the old app as that was more reliable and i trust it a lot more. Some feature that I would like to see are:

Biometric login
Integration with google/alexa so that areas can be set by voice
Ability to create areas and add sensors using the app

Thank you for your feedback on the app, it is appreciated. We've added biometric login to the sign in process. To make sure you can use it, please ensure your phone has a passcode to access the device and you then should see toggle options to remember the user code and app password and use biometric login if you have a compatible device with FaceID or TouchID. The passcode acts as the failover in the event the biometric login is not recognised.

It would be really useful if you would send us some more detail about the specific issue you mentioned in the first part of your review to marketing@pyronix.com so we can try and help you fix the issue you are experiencing.

Also, thank you for the additional notes around feature upgrades. We'll add these to our list.

A fresh look but buggy

Like the look of the new app, it’s well presented and looks much better than the previous 2 apps, however, like all new apps I have experienced a few bugs which is letting the app down.

On occasions after logging in I am faced with the option to arm all areas. This is a slide button only and doesn’t allow me to see / access the 3 zones that I currently have on my alarm system. What is strange is that this is an intermittent bug, if I close the app and login again it then shows me the 3 zones as expected.

Secondly, the notifications section isn’t working properly. When I view the notifications the red circle disappears but when a new notification comes through the red circle returns but the notification count hasn’t reset, it just keeps going up.

On the previous two apps it was possible to delete / clear the notifications but I am unable to do this with the new app.

I have also experienced a number of crashing while reviewing the “history” section. Although he page seems to load fine as soon as I start to scroll down the app crashes and closes down.

While it is great to be able to remotely access / arm the alarm system it would be nice to see some additional functionality added to give owners the ability to manage their alarm a lot easier such as the ability to add users and made changes to the systems settings using the relevant engineer or manager codes.

Hi, thanks for your feedback on the app. We are actively working on updates to the apps which should address your feedback. Thank you for the feature feedback as well, we will pass that on and add it to the list of feature requests.

Love the biometrics upgrade

I’m receiving notifications on my app, anyone not receiving them, check that your account is set to get them on the Pyronix Cloud. However, my app badge indicates the total number of notifications, including the ones which have already been acknowledged. For example, app receives 2 new notifications but there are 48 read ones in the notifications section of the app, the app icon shows 50. I.e. a total count of notifications, both read and unread. It’s a little disconcerting when you first see it and think that many notifications have triggered on your security system!

The older version of the home control (home control+) had the same issue, but you were able to delete notifications, with this new version you can’t delete them. If this was sorted, would be a 5* review
