There is no way to add a SIB

When trying to add a SiB all you get is a white screen with no text. If I can’t do the one thing I got the app for then the app is no good.

An abysmal app for an abysmal product

The concept was great, but execution to the concept has not yet happened.

Not only is it a flaky mess (there is no consistency at all), but if you read the support page it looks like Donald Trump may have written it.

For all the lack of reliability, or even accuracy in the documentation, the author believes that saying it is great and wonderful, makes it great and wonderful. The creator opines that all the problems with getting these to work are due to someone else’s failures. It’s not the SiB, it’s the crazy iOS versions with all those pesky screen sizes, and too many versions, and other “stuff” which is just them not working very well for this super amazing easy to use product.

In the real world of developing products for a market, the product should work with the infrastructure it is supposedly designed to interface with. The creator of these has chosen to blame the infrastructure as the problem, rather than the poorly executed product.

A great example of how badly the documentation is developed, is the explanation on how to reset the device to factory settings, when the app can no longer be used (or in the majority of cases, never did work, and stalled mid pairing). It states that one should press the button which will turn green, and then about 12 seconds will turn white, then quickly release the button, and repeat this 3 times.

Sounds simple but the app can’t find it via WiFi (2.4GHz on Eero mesh) or Bluetooth...trying to restart the process from factory unfortunately results in button push, 5 seconds to flashing white, which after releasing and pressing the button again does absolutely nothing (stays in flashing white mode until it powers down again). Another variant is to continue holding until 12 seconds (ignoring that the white light has been flashing since about 5 seconds in) and then release and try again...no difference. And yet another...just keep holding the button to see if the white light will eventually stop flashing...and it does...when it powers down again.

The creator obviously prefers Android to iOS, but using an Android device has fared no better, and that changes nothing about the factory reset process which is app independent.
