Ratings and Reviews
Settings could be better
My original review talked about the inability to change between °C and °F. The developer noted that this setting can be changed in the app settings inside your device settings. While it’s nice this is available, it is not very discoverable.
Moving these settings in-app would improve the app experience greatly. Otherwise, app works as advertised.

You'll find the temperature unit selection in the general settings. Open the Apple "Settings" app, choose our app "Devices", and tap on "Temperature Units".
We're planning to enable the temperature unit settings directly in the app in the near future.
I do hope that, apart from the temperature unit selection, you're satisfied with our latest updates? :-)

Bery good experience for a long time now
I am using devices for a longer time frequently now and i am more and more happy with the ease of use, especially after the great design update. There are constantly updates and features like new triggers coming which is also great
“Well isn’t that special...“
But seriously, I like it. Clever use of the AR kit. I’ve been wondering when more apps would start to make use of this API...(can you tell I'm a programer?). I have enough devices in my abode to make it worthwhile to use. Lying in bed while pointing my phone at the corner lamp to turn in on and off. My [great]grandfather is probably rolling in his grave right now.
The app keeps losing the "link" to the device and I have to redo it.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. With our new AR Feature we use Apple's ARKit, which just introduced environment persistency, enabling Apps to restore your Home in our case. Unfortunately it doesn't always works perfectly and is really dependent on your environment. We hope the Framework ARKit will be continuously being improved and will provide you a better and better experience in the future. Until then we recommend you to point your camera to recognisable spots like floors with a lot trigger points ( when you can see a lot of the yellow dots on the screen ).
