Great Potential - Steamroller Time?

Much faster response times than others. I have the following hubs in use: Hue Hub, Harmony hub, Wink 2,Ring, and Google. This is one of the best devices for compatability and ease of use. it is Microsoft after all. We just need a few more "updates". If they fix the reliablility issues, that this could be the best device currently on the market. Remeber Bill Gates driving a steamroller over Netscape? The ad said "it took a bit of time but we're slowly coming back". Alexa, you need to step up your game or you won't be playing. I tell her to shutup more than ask her questios. (Wink 2 - i had hope for them but now its minimal, Harmony Hub (great for control of all TV's, audio and lights - links with other hubs - will still use).

UPDATED: No way to switch Homes

I have two homes set up in Apple HomeKit. With the most recent update there is no longer a way to switch between them. I loved this app, but need to be able to access the data stored for both HomeKit locations.

The developer confirmed the bug immediately and are working on the fix. That’s real customer support! I have the whole bundle of their Home apps and use at least one of them every day. Excellent apps and outstanding people.

Developer Response ,

Hi,

Sorry for this, a bug was introduced in the latest update that accidentally caused the home switcher icon to hide. I have an update waiting for review right now with Apple.

Feel free to reach out to me via the in-app support channels and I can add you there further in the future.

Great GUI for, effectively, a free Notes entry.

It does what it says, though I felt led to believe that was something else: specifically, it doesn’t auto-import codes from your existing HK setup, leaving you to manually enter them all from scratch (just as you’d have to do in a Notes app note). I paid the $3 to avoid this time-consuming task, and though I now understand that’s impossible to do (HK doesn’t store them, apparently) the sting of throwing money at a solution I could’ve had for free via Notes is still there.

Three stars for being what it said it is. -2 for not making what it’s *not* more clear. It’s a great solution if you’re willing to put in the work.

Hi, the last paragraph of the app description explicitly states that it cannot import codes from HomeKit due to the security model that HomeKit has. HomeKit itself does not store the codes at all, they are simply used as keys to enable pairing.

HomePass does a lot more than notes. It offers actual camera based scanning of text and QR codes so you do not have to manually enter anything. You can select already paired devices to auto fill data fields and now you can export a PDF and view your codes on your Watch to re-pair them.

If you are unhappy with the app, you can request a refund via Apple. - Aaron
