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!

So far I’ve enjoyed the use of the HIVE. I like the convenience of being able to turn lights on and off, as well as adjusting my thermostats (up and down stairs) without being at home.

Downside is sometimes I have to adjust the AC twice before it actually accepts the change. Or every now and then all of my lights will start turning on as if they are on a schedule daily.

Didn’t even work...

This product doesn’t work. I was given this product from my energy company. I never worked up the nerve to try to put it together and so it stayed unopened in the box for a year or so but amidst this time of quarantine I decided to put it together. I started off plugging in it as the app instructed it blinks green. I thought that showed some promise so I plugged in the Ethernet cable into my router and the green light continued to blink. I decided to type in my hub ID and all I got for the next hour was... sorry we can’t find you HUB. Wow! I mean really?! I have 2 door sensors, 2 color changing light bulbs and an active plug that are just left to rot because the HIVE is crappy! I don’t know if it’s the app or the product, but a pointer to whoever runs this company your product is supposed to WORK!
