Ratings and Reviews
Cool App But…
This app is known for all smarthome builders and users for its straightforward attractive interface which for HomeKit products is amazing but has one MAJOR and when I say MAJOR flaw I mean it. The app has limited smart products that work with this interface leaving the average consumer to not be able to use the app for just about anything and to get any sense of remote connectivity you need to either understand computer programming and server building or just buying constant hub adapters I really do love my apple but due to having not millions in income I have to compromise on products bought and due to the incompatibility of it all I’m left with virtually nothing I would honestly love if companies that are creating a smart ecosystem would allow the user to choose which interface they want to use instead of being forced to have multiple hubs and smart assistants to do every day mundane tasks I understand the reasoning behind it and apple wanting top notch security for its users but it’s hard and costly to get apple approved products and falls in very limited with product lineups the work around is incredibly complicated I wish the companies would just coexist with eachother and work on developing better options and products for the every day consumer
Thanks Apple, you’ve really outdone yourself
We have been religiously using nothing but Apple products for years, peddling them to our friends and family - but today it was really set in stone what an absolute hot garbage dump Apple is becoming. We spent hundreds of dollars upgrading our front door security system with a pro doorbell and electronic smart lock, because - hooray - it can all be used with Home! We got everything all set up, so excited to finally be able to just unlock the door with our iPhones and Apple Watches. I set everything up, so excitedly putting my wrist up to the door to unlock while juggling my 10-month-old and various other items. Great for me! Tried to set up the same ease of use for my husband, but then we realized… HomeKit is now just “Home” and like every other money-grubbing dumpster of a company, Apple has stooped low enough to require JUST ONE MORE expensive device to be able to add the other owner of this house on the app. My husband can’t use his phone or anything else to get into the house without first purchasing the stupid HomePod that no one even knew existed. There is a reason it went away once - it’s worthless. Retire it again and let us use our devices the way they’re meant to be used. Thanks to our friends at Apple, we now have a non-refundable VERY expensive upgrade to our front door that we can’t even use the way it was intended. Appreciate it.
I have my entire home connected through the home app. Closer to 75 individual lights, locks, sensors, etc., including three HomePods and 1 Tv4K. It used to be a nightmare to keep it all connected and running well consistently, but the last 2-3 iOS and HomePod software updates have drastically improved it! A new issue with 16.3.1 is that my HomePods no longer recognize “set lights to adaptive” (which adjusts the brightness throughout the day). It says “Hmm, there are no accessories that support that”; so I must open my phone and go into the app to do it.
Update: Uncovering more and more issues as a result of 16.3.1! Things are working slowly or not at all, at times. Automations aren’t doing the correct things (lights turn on at the wrong brightness/color/or not at all, for example). I get a message that pops up in the app that says my phone “isn’t on the same network as my HomePods” whenever I’m on cellular service instead of my home Wi-Fi. My HomePods give me “error” responses sometimes for simple commands such as “set the basement lights to adaptive”. Ughhhhh! 16.3 years as flawless! Come on!!! 3 stars because if the many, many flaws uncovered in this iOS.
