This app is full of bugs. I’ve had the Keen system for about a year now. Running three vents and two temperature sensors, connected to Nest thermostat. As others have said, the vents are constantly disconnecting. The app is just about impossible to use. I’ve been on with tech support multiple times to get temperature sensors to connect. Turns out I had beta hardware. They did send me a new temperature sensor and it connects now. However they never did get my keen hub to update firmware. They said it’s my ISP. Of course ISP says it keen. Never got anywhere with that. In the app trying to set the temperature for the vent to close or open it just resets to original value. I had to do it prob 9 or 12 time to get it to stick. One vent I had to reset to get the app to set the close temp. Constant issues. Going to try SmartThings hub next and see if it works better. When it all works it’s great and does exactly what is advertised. The problem is it rarely works for long. Have to mess with it 2 to 3 times per week. It’s a real pain.
Eventually I think the devices will work fine. Very close
I integrated the keen with ecobee. Couple of issues that I see. 1. It works with the Ecobee remote sensors for each room, but it doesn’t utilize the thermostat sensor to control the vents in he same room as the thermostat. 2. What is the Exclamation mark on connected device in the app? 3. Seems to work once I scheduled the occupied room and it go’s through the next cycle. As long you don’t manually touch the controls.... it appears to automate with the ecobee sensors.
I haven’t played enough with the automation and smartthings. I would like to see if the home hits an average home temp then the keen vents open with the ecobee whole house fan starts running with all the ceiling fans executing instead of the A/c kicking on. Especially if the window sensors are open.
Broken - Buyer Beware!
Update: the app, or possibly Keen’s server(s), have been down for days now with. Support has been unreachable. The vents are now unusable, with no indication of a fix.
Great Idea, but Half Baked
These vents are a great idea, and it's clear that some time has been spent on the hardware. Unfortunately, the iOS app and corresponding software seems to be half baked. The interface leaves a lot of interpretation to the user - does +1 degree in a room mean that it's a degree hotter than it should be, or that you want it a degree hotter? You can schedule 'occupancy' times for rooms, but the settings are too coarse - and the weekend settings would probably make more sense if they allowed you to set up late nights on Friday and Saturday. Instead it's Saturday and Sunday, which are indeed the weekend days but not necessarily the right days for this application.
Also the app's 'Auto' mode, which should really be its top feature, hasn't worked for about a month. Tech support from Keen stopped responding to messages - but they seem more than happy to post updates about their attempts to recruit investors for the company.
Stay away until there are signs of life from the development team and improvements to the software!
