Hardware okay, software, well.....

It works... more or less. The price is definitely right, but there are ragged edges. For starters, there is no native iPad landscape mode. For those of us who use iPad with a magic keyboard, that’s a deal-breaker right out of the gate. There is a (somewhat confusing) option which purports to sync Aqara names and rooms with Homekit - it doesn’t, at least, not consistently. Part of the onboarding process is to figure out what the new device is called in HK and in what room it was initially installed, then rename it and relocate it. Not a huge deal, just an annoyance.

Ugly icon

They replaced the nice icon they had with this hideous ugly icon I now have to constantly look at on my home screen.

The same update changed the large, easy to press with tiny controls.

Adding a temperature sensor added a nice “Bedroom environment” info panel to the top of the app home screen. After adding another temperature sensor and trying to change the room here, the entire feature permanently disappeared.

All time is in 24-hour format which no one in the US uses unless you’re in law enforcement or military.

There is no dark mode, and you can’t set the app background to a normal color but instead are forced to choose from these bizarre wallpaper photos.

Start time and stop time in automation doesn’t work in a logical or user friendly way.

The app has an always-on alarm setting that you can’t shut off even if you want to. So I have to set it to “if the front door is open for 24 hours” to effectively disable it. The old version of the app at least had a decent name for this weird feature, now it’s even more unfriendly with the name “7*24 guard”.

Randomly, error messages in the app will be in Chinese.

I can’t add custom actions to an alarm going off. For example, I’d like to turn on the lights when the alarm goes off but that’s not possible.

Despite all that, I still give it four stars. Overall it does its job pretty well. I wish very badly they’d add webhooks to the automation actions.

Excellent app

This app with the temp/humidity sensors attached does exactly what I need it to do and is very precise about it. You can zoom in and out on the charts which is incredibly helpful if you want more detailed information.

My only gripe is the name cards have such a big icon. Would be better if the actual information that I’m seeking was biggest and everything else prioritized after that by descending size, with name being second of course, and somewhere after that would be icon size.
