Description

This is the new official LightwaveRF app to manage the amazing LightwaveRF Smart Home Platform with your iPhone, iPod or iPad.*
The LightwaveRF Smart Home Platform allows you to monitor and control lighting, power and heating whether you are in the home, or out and about, using a smart-phone, tablet or PC. The product range consists of attractive and affordable dimmer switches, power sockets and thermostatic radiator valves, plus a large range of other innovative products, some of which are simple plug ‘n’ play and others that can be easily retrofitted by any competent DIYer. All devices communicate wirelessly eliminating the need for any additional wiring.

The LightwaveRF Smart Home Platform is:
• Affordable
• Simple to Fit
• Easy to use

The LightwaveRF Smart Home Platform can:
• Save you money through reduced energy usage!
• Help keep your home and family more safe and secure
• Make your life more comfortable – no arriving home to a cold, dark house
• Save you time by automating many of the daily processes in your home

The LightwaveRF Smart Home app allows you to:
• Setup your WiFiLink and products in minutes.
• Monitor, control and schedule lighting, power and heating requirements by individual room
• Define and name Rooms that reflect the layout of your own home
• Allocate and name devices within each room
• Set Moods by room for lighting and power – for example, fully on for cleaning, some lights dimmed and the TV off for reading, and nice and cosy dimmed lights when watching TV
• Build complex events to turn on or off multiple devices across many rooms with one button
• Schedule single devices or events to activate at certain times by day, week and month
• Automatically link schedules to sunrise and sunset times
• Add random delays to events to create that genuine “look like you’re at home when you’re not at home”
• Schedule heating programmes by individual room
• Add our energy monitor to see your electricity usage real-time, and totals so far today and yesterday

And you can do all of these things even if you were on the other side of the world!

* Note that this app requires a LightwaveRF Link and the appropriate LightwaveRF devices being fitted.

Unintuitive app - badly needs in-app help

UPDATE FOR LATEST VERSION: Some improvement in the way the app works, for example dawn and dusk times are now actually correct! However the app no longer seems to retain my login details as I am now every time I want to change or pause/un-pause a timer I have to log in again. 5/10 for the update 😠

I don't often write reviews but felt I needed to for this app. The Lightwave product line is a good concept and apparently very flexible although so far i have only installed one electric switch. The real problem I am finding only after trying to set up this one switch with a schedule is that the app is just not intuitive. If I was more unkind I would say it was downright confusing. And this is an upgrade on previous apps!! Have the developers used any customer feedback??

Having said all that, it wouldn't have been soooo bad if the app had some reasonable help options but it doesn't. Come on Lightwave, if you continue to produce apps like this you will lose your customers!!

Ok software and products

The products are easy to install and configure, however after the latest update my heating schedule stopped working and had the set point changed to 27 & I am unable to re-link it to the hub. As a result I had to change the schedule in the actual thermostat. Are there some communications bugs that have been introduced with the latest upgrade in the app? This should be the same as before and should remain solid even after display and functionality tweaks. I think prior to any new updates the software should be throughly tested as it is trivial to have a working system and also users could be communicated in a better way in case there has been a mistake. What good is it to be able to add photos or dusk and dawn functions, when the app is struggling in the setup process and communications to some units? I have enjoyed to use lightwaverf for the past 3 years. Old ladies are not that techie, and will struggle specially if the heating is playing funny or sockets stop responding.
This needs to be fixed as a priority!

Lots, lots worse than used to be

I’ve had LightwaveRF products almost since they hit the market. When the link/app came on the scene it was fantastic; reliable and worked every time. Over recent years though, it’s become much less so. And now I’m hugely disappointed by it. It’s a 50/50 gamble whether it will work or not. I’ve logged my complaint with support and hope a fix appears. Soon! If I didn’t have so much of their stuff I’d bin it. I’ve recently had British Gas install Hive heating in my home and have tried adding a hive lightbulb to a lamp; brilliant! Works every time. Totally reliable. If BG increase the range of Hive products then I may well bite the bullet and replace all my unreliable LightwaveRF products. Come on guys....GET IT SORTED!
