Ratings and Reviews
Worked great at first but now the air and/or heat doesn't kick on when it's supposed to. For instance, I'll have set the temp to 72 for the air con. I'll notice that it feels warm. I check the app and it'll indicate the temp at a degree or two higher, but no air. The air will THEN kick on, as if opening the app triggered it to finally work. Then I'll feel the air con but it won't be indicated within the app. Not good when setting a temperature doesn't actually work. This is a recurring problem and I only decided to write a review after it'd been going on for over a month now. Sadly, I feel like perhaps I should have spent a bit more for another more popular brand that was recommended to me...
Good app; minor usability improvements needed
Overall I’d say I’m pleased with the app. It’s incredibly simple to add new devices and configure them. The usability of the app is pretty good with the exception of 1 thing: make it so that I can turn on/off devices from the dashboard. Having to go into each device to turn them on and off is a bit of a hassle. (Note: I do have actions and schedules for a few of them so I don’t need to go into the app all the time, but there is still a need to manually turn on/off lights and switches regularly.
Secondly, add the capability to group switches in addition to light bulbs. I have a group of switches that controls Xmas lights that I would like to turn on/off with a single tap. Thanks!
It’s a clumsy App. Slow to load, sometimes it sends notifications and sometimes not!
The schedule is weird too, no option to operate
all the time as a default! You have to pickup the weird times and/or choices given!
