Almost ok(ish)

I read another review where the user said the interface was jittery. The developer replied that he was the only one reporting a jittery interface interface. That’s probably because the interface behavior is closer to an epileptic seizure than it is a jitter. For example, while sliding a dimmer slider, the slider jumps all over the place. And when I let it go, it jumps to a whole different value that I didn’t select. It would also be nice if I didn’t have to tap twice to turn on a light. The app isn’t at a place where I would continue to use it and hope for updates. It’s just simply unusable. But as that other reviewer said, you can sense where the developer wanted to go with this. And it wasn’t a bad idea. Just a bad implementation. I too, will check back in a year or so.

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 ;)).
