Ok App -- but needs work

The app functions pretty well and seems quicker and more responsive than the Insteon for Hub app. However, (IMHO) the graphic interface is pretty lame, unnecessarily colorless and boring and does not make a good use of screen real estate. The real bummer for me is no support for my cameras -- which Insteon for Hub does quite well.

Good, but potential to be even better

Better than the Insteon app, but it can't see my I/O devices - only on/off devices? Am I missing something or does it not support I/O devices? Please update if it doesn't! Thanks.

Developer Response ,

Homeboy currently supports most Insteon on/off and lighting modules. Unfortunately, we're currently unable to support sensor devices due to a limitation with the Insteon interface that Homeboy needs to communicate with. We're currently working with Insteon to bridge this limitation so that Homeboy can support sensor devices in the near future. As this is one of the most popular feature requests that we receive, we'll continue to work with Insteon and deliver this feature as soon as possible. However, no ETA as of yet. Thanks for your feedback and for using Homeboy!

Excellent App!!!

Just installed on my phone. It is super easy to setup. It’s quick and responsive and does everything as advertised. Not flashy but I’m sure that’s why it performs so well. Great job!!!!
