Good devices, easy setup, bad app

With a more sophisticated app, this could be a really good product, but the app seems like it’s still in development. For example, there’s very few options for customizing the garage door sensor notifications. You get notified every time the garage door opens and closes. The notification is the same as a text message. Eventually I disabled all notifications from the door. It should be easier to see whether the garage door is open or closed on the home screen rather than having to click down. On the other hand, the devices are cheap and easy to set up. This rest is the easy part to fix! Hoping for an update to the app soon

Bad user interface

This is a nice concept, but the interface wasn’t designed well. For example, it currently tells me “! Your devices need attention”. My “Dishwasher” device says “! Reported on Jan 9 at 3:02 am”. That’s it, there’s no way to find out what was reported or to reset it. There’s a graph of temperature and humidity, but they’re in range.

An app designed by an engineer

This app seems to have been designed by an engineer working in this product, or otherwise by someone who does not pay attention to Ui design, user-friendliness, collection of focus-group feedback or A/B testing - or pretty much any type of work which is required for a main-stream application. It is hard to configure the application for in-home use without guessing whether a ‘logical-and’ or a ‘logical-or’ is intended, something which should not have been necessary for a consumer-facing app. Overall a disappointment for a hardware product that could have been great.
