Neat but still an MVP

This is a neat approach to automation editing, however it is far from feature complete. UI is very jittery when connecting to my HA server, it looks like it is updating the UI with every entity it loads. You can only trigger from sensors, sun, alarms, and date/time. Not all domains and components are present in the UI. The UX is not very intuitive, I ended up triggering automations when I tried to edit them.

Might try it again next year if it improves.

Developer Response ,

Hi Teagan,

Thank you for the detailed feedback. The app is designed to only update specific components when there are changes in data from an entity. I have not received any other reports of a jittery UI, so there might have been an issue specific to your experience. I will investigate this further.

Currently, I am working hard to add the remaining domains and automation capabilities. Your feedback is much appreciated, and I hope to exceed your expectations when you return (hopefully sooner rather than later ;)).

Unable to Reset Login Connection

App is stuck on “Connecting….” No way to access settings to change login info. Uninstalling, rebooting, reinstalling didn’t fix it.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear that the app did not work. I have identified and fixed the bug that caused this issue. Additionally, I have made changes to the entire flow so that if this bug were to occur again, you will have the opportunity to adjust the settings accordingly.

Didn’t work

It looks endlessly for my server. And won’t connect when manually enter the HA ip address.

Hi Stegdump, sorry for the bad experience, I should have tested the app better before releasing it. Last weeks I have been looking at what may have caused the issue and I think I may have found it. After debugging a lot I think it comes down to the way security certificates are handled with certain Home Assistant instances. There comes a lot of different variables in to play which made this hard to fix (country, HA Connection type, even potential phone settings), that is why it took so long. The last update should contain an update that has fixed it.

Thanks for bringing the issue to my attention, if for whatever reason it still does not work, feel free to reach out to rienk@ovio.systems and I will make it a priority to fix it.

Kind regards,
