Buggy. Doesn’t work

Update: had created a backup of scenes. For sime reason homekit randomly deletes all the accessories from all scenes about every 6 weeks. A “feature” I’m sure. Anywho, when trying to restore the update nothing happened for a while. Then suddenly ii had a bunch of scenes with only serial numbers as descriptions. Thats not helpful at all. I’m sure I’m doing something incorrect but its pretty self explanatory. Help?

Update: got immediate response from developer. That alone deserves four stars. Took four resets, logging in and out of icloud thrice and removing/adding apple watch twice before it worked. Still crashed after every delete of a scene already deleted. Restarted and repeated. Seems to be better now. But time will tell. No way to tell if its the app or apple, frankly.

Buggy on iOS 13. Crashes all the time. Shows deleted scenes but cant delete them. Not worth the new jacked up price of $9.

Developer Response ,

Please report crashes and bugs you experience. There is a service desk to get help.
There are 4 Apple defined scenes that cannot be deleted. If you see outdated HomeKit data, like deleted scenes, there is a deeper problem of Apple in your setup. The app shows the data it gets from HomeKit.

The Best!

This app is the best HomeKit manager available. The Apple Home app is excellent for automations converted to Shortcuts, but beyond that, you have to have access to more power of the HomeKit API. This app is exactly that. Use it with Apple’s HomeKit and Home app. The ability to peg exact attributes of lights is, alone, worth the price. I can now peg exact matches for lights across scenes. Color Temp, Saturation, Hue, Brightness, and Power. Five attributes for every single device! Exact matches are easy. I will say that it take patience. When setting attributes, some times you wait a few to see it accept the result. No biggie. Just wait on it. Build your scenes EXACTLY as desired. Don’t try to replace the Home App. Use that and Shortcuts and Siri all you want. This app is for configuring stuff behind the scenes more than a front end. I nearly never write reviews. This is worth it. I bought the $65 Lifetime without hesitation. How many $40-$50 bulbs do you own…. Spend this and be thrilled with the access and power. I have only had it for a few days. Changed my HomeKit! I redid all scenes with exact accuracy. I am thrilled!

UPDATE: I just installed the MAC app. No delay there, it appears! Fast to configure a scene with every attribute pegged. Fast. Better. Much faster (responsive) than the iPad app.

Just used it to restore pretty much everything!

I’ve used this in the past (around version 4.0.0) when my HomeKit setup got corrupted and I had to reset; and it was useful, but took a while to manually assign unknown devices. Luckily, I made a backup when 4.2.0 came out (current version when writing this is 4.2.1); and when I needed to restore this time (I deleted a second home in the Home app and it deleted my main home instead), all I had to do was use the Home app to add my bridges and other devices (this app says Apple doesn’t allow creating HomeKit devices, I don’t remember if I had to do that last time or not), but this time, all the devices paired up! My home went from everything with default names in Default Room, to all the custom names, rooms, scenes, and scheduled events executed by an Apple TV.
