Ratings and Reviews
Overall great — definitely read the instructions before figuring out how to fully operate
ETA — most of what I initially said was inconsistent turned out to be user error on my part. (I didn’t understand that you could not use split modes throughout the entire house.) Bear that in mind when using! For example, we live in New England and quite often the temperatures can fluctuate quite a bit within one day, especially during certain seasons. So I’ll save you the trouble from digging through the instructions like I had to — ***You cannot use heat AND cooling at the same time in different zones.*** You’d have to shut off one and turn on the other. Aside from that, the system works great. I even find that the App gets us more accurate output over the remotes. Overall very happy with it. Just takes some getting used to / has a learning curve to operate to its full capabilities.
When the app works, it’s great - but unfortunately I have to say that it is inconsistent at best. The times that the temperatures have either risen or dipped within my children’s rooms where I have wanted to modify the temperature settings in some way, the App seems to be glitchy or unavailable or showing the zones as in “standby” and I’m not able to override it or correct it except to physically go in the room and change it with the physical remote itself. Very frustrating, to say the least.

Getting the most out of Kumo
We have been using the Kumo cloud for 2 years. Initially I was disappointed with the running cost. It appeared I had just traded fuel oil dollars for electric dollars. A few less dollars, but a tough argument to sell to my wife expecting a significant savings. THEN I started playing with the programming. We now run the system twice a day using the program feature. One cycle early before we get up and one cycle late before retiring. During January, these two cycles total 12 hours. I adjust the run time as the weather gets warmer, eventually dropping the evening run and this morning I shut down the morning cycle too. We both can access the Kumo cloud on our phones to turn in on or off when we feel the need. The impact to our electric bill has been amazing, reducing our kilowatts demand by nearly 60%. Admittedly we need to be more proactive with turning it on and off, but the savings are significant.

Clunky and unresponsive
This app is the only to control a Mitshubishi Heat Pump from a phone or remotely, with its full set of features and efficency. Unfortunately, its a very terrible app. Its slow and unresponsive. When I tap on a button, about half of the time it picks up the tap, and the other half there's no response for a few seconds, and when it does finally respond, a spinning circle appears in the middle fo the screan for several seconds. But, every action requires clicking through at least a few of these screen. So a quick temp check, or update which should be a glance or tap and a few seconds is a tedius tap, tap, wait, tap , tap wait, tap tap, wait, select value/room, wait and at least 2 minutes. I hate this app and threw it out and bought Termostate adapters for all of my heat pumps and an Ecobee instead. Its less efficient, since it can only turn the pump on or off to modulate the room temp, but using the kumo app is just so frustrating that its just not worth the effort unfortunately. And, I can use the smart home system I want to use with Ecobee to integrate with routines and automations where kumo is a walled garten with no external integrations at all. Honestly if kumo provided integration with Google Home, or Apple home, and I could control it form there, I'd be exstatic. But unfortunately Kumo is for some reason completely closed off making it from bad to completely unusable.
