One error and you’re stuck
I’ve used this app now for a couple of months and it say the least it’s half baked at best. If you get one error on your automower (which you will) there are no known ways to mankind of how to get out of this error state in the iOS app. You can try turning the mower on and off, disconnect and reconnect, log in and our of your husqvarna connect account but nothing will help. You just gonna have to sit back and wait for something magical to happen in an unknown timespan that will magically let you control your automower again from your app. My automower is litterally mowing my lawn right now but according to the app the mower is in”error collision problem front” mode 🤷♂️
We have only had our mower working about a month. So far the app seems to work easily. We can see all of the settings and menu options that are on the mower. It sends us notifications every time the mower gets hung up or slips off the front curb. It is easy to change settings on the app.
Scheduling is simple. The only thing we don’t have yet is a good map due to setting up late in the year. I am in high hopes that once the map finally shows up I can use it to tell my mower to head to my front yard. It really needs a way to let me tell the mower exactly when to go mow the front so I can leave the gate open.
This would feel more 5 star if we had that blade change reminder and if we had more control over sending the mower exactly where and when we want it there.
So far easy to use and looks nice.
Good app but needs more
Overall works good as long as your mower doesn’t lose connection. Would be great if Automower could also be set to Wi-Fi as most home Wi-Fi cover the area around the house that gets mowed.
Also, scheduling needs some rework for ease of use and real use cases. The main use case that cannot be done is setting number of days between mowing. Every other or every third day cannot be scheduled when you can only do a special day of week time based schedule. One would want both to be possible. Also, it would be nice to set temporary scheduling for things like weather tomorrow so don’t mow.
Machine maintenance: would be great to have a basic timer that tracks number of hours mowed since last service for things like cleaning and blade changes.
