Avi-on is a large scale commercial lighting control solution for office, school, hospital, warehouse, manufacturing, parking lot, horticultural, and other industrial applications. Using new/current smartphones or tablets with current operating systems, commercial installers can quickly set-up devices, program schedules and timers, and add sensors, scene controllers, or wireless switches. No wi-fi hub or gateway is required. All schedules and settings are saved on a Bluetooth chip inside each device. Once programmed locally, the schedules will operate without the Internet or your phone nearby.
Avi-on enables many users to control many devices through a single account. Your account and settings are saved in the Avi-on cloud, providing instant back-up. If you want wi-fi access, 24/7 clock synchronization, and/or Alexa compatibility, install an optional Avi-on Remote Access Bridge (RAB). The RAB turns Avi-on into a DLC 4.0 certified networked energy monitoring solution that meets the toughest building codes and maximizes utility rebates, where available.

Customer service and software needs work.
I purchased 6 indoor and 2 outdoor switches two years ago to control xmas lights around the house. Everything worked flawlessly. This year we set up the lights and the app wouldn't recognize any of the switches. For the first few days our work around was to log out and back in every time we wanted to turn the lights on or off. The app wouldn't log back in and was giving an error message that it can't connect to my internet. Internet was working fine for everything else on my phone. Customer service was not helpful. I was finally able to solve the issue after reading through a bunch of reviews and finding the solution posted by another user. It required a very long software update process that needed to be done one switch at a time. Once software was updated they worked great again.

Work Great after 3-4 Years
I have spent lots of money on smart devices like many have. And we have children. I must say that after trying numerous smart devices, the most important aspect is that your products function for years to come without failure and with very minimal maintenance and upgrades. Avi-on smart plugs have been functioning well in our home. We experienced glitches and inconveniences with their software upgrades. Once the software was settled and glitches fixed, the lights are working as expected. We want to keep our kids safe and sound at home. The smart plugs products have helped us achieve that for 3 years now. We bought ours in the stores. Here is another thing: we do not want to spend $40 on smart devices. This is way too expensive for ordinary American families. It adds up fast with every single device and software costs. It is too too much. Who can afford $400 iPhones year after year?!? Oh maybe software makers can!?! They make good money. But we don’t!! We buy what we need, not what we like! So I got my Avion plug for $25 at a local store, which was affordable price. Others weren’t as lucky as I. After 3-4 years, my Avi-on products are still all working in my home with zero maintenance and no fail. So I am a very happy Mom. Now I just hope this product lasts forever as it is. Fingers crossed.
You designed the firmware & software for GE plug in switch to fail
You designed the firmware & software for GE plug in switch to fail without any way to make it communicate again short of sending it to you at my cost and possibly not getting it back, should you decide it is broken?
AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!! Why design something to be robust when you could instead design something that not only EASILY FAILS, but then becomes PERMANENTLY unable to communicate with any device. And, yes, I meticulously went through all your myriad pages upon linked pages without skipping or mis-ordering any of the instructions. I have one switch that still works and one that can no longer be seen by any device, and therefore cannot be added again, no matter what I have done. Yes, I’ve tried holding the button, much longer than required for reset. I have even gone so far as to completely delete and then reinstall the app, and one switch still works while the other is invisible and cannot be added. I have even deleted and re-added the working switch on my account successfully. No, they weren’t in separate accounts. Yes, I have repeated your steps again, with perfect attention to detail. No, it was not damaged. It was treated exactly as the working switch was treated, and it used to work. Product is poor. There should be a class action suit to have the failed ones replaced.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
