Ratings and Reviews
I’d rather use HomeKit
I was finally able to install the firmware update, but this is the only reason I have the app. If it was possible to trigger the installation of firmware updates from HomeKit, I would never use this app.
Beats Getting Up
It’s a great smart home solution for standard electrical devices. It also integrates with other smart home solutions.
Configuring a Connect Sense device is simple, the Scenes are more involved but still intuitive. I use the app for Connect Sense products only. I use my other smart home products’ Siri access commands.
Sometimes the app shows a device offline and powering the device off & on clears the problem. Other times resetting and reinstalling the device is necessary to bring the device back online.
Though fixing a non communicative offline device is reasonably simple, it’s not reasonable to have to endure the inconvenience so I rated the product an overall 4. It would definitely be rated a 5 if it were consistently reliable.
I just downloaded another firmware upgrade; maybe that fixed the occasional offline aggravation.
