It works but it could be much better

It works. Not well. Not terrible. Just works. Not a compliment.

This thing is slow to respond to commands. Very slow. It will do it, but it can take from 30 seconds to several minutes to respond to a command. At that point you are seriously questioning if it actually received your command. This makes using the smart plug to turn your bedroom lights off annoying at best and frustrating to no end at worst. It makes it so I never use the app to unlock my door or lock my door.

It does still work though. It does a good job of creating automations for the thermostat so I can regulate the temperature of the house based on the time of day. There’s no way to set an away mode though so it doesn’t change temperature when we leave the house. I made a Siri shortcut for locking and unlocking the door but that only works from my phone and again it’s very slow.

No Apple Watch support or Apple home support. It would be really great to have one or the other. Either would allow me to send commands through my watch which would make the convenience factor much better.

Besides that it isn’t a broken app but the framework it’s based on isn’t great. I’m stuck with it so I’m glad it at least works.

What a waste

Z-Wave? Really? My landlord made my apartment “smart” with a door lock, thermostat, and some cheap plug in controller. The thermostat won’t stay connected, the plug in rarely works. The door lock is the only reliable thing in this “smart” system. I have used actual smart home equipment from thermostats to cameras and smoke detectors that actually worked. With this system you get no notifications when your door locks or unlocks. The only notification the lock sends is when the lock “jams”. About the dumbest “smart” system I’ve ever used. I still have to get up and manually change the thermostat. Right now it’s set to heat, yet the app shows the ac is still set. And for all this smart technology I’m paying a $10 fee added to my lease. After the first year I figure I will have paid for this pointless and otherwise useless equipment.

Not great but has potential

My apartment installed the new lock and thermostat controlled by this app four days ago. The first day the thermostat didn’t work at all and only gave the option to turn it off, but customer support rebooted it and it now works. Complaints I have so far relate to the displayed temperature in the app (always says 79 when the thermostat is turned off, even if the thermostat itself says something different) and the door lock status not being accurate. I haven’t seen it say it was locked when it was actually unlocked, but it seems like every morning or overnight it resets and says it’s unlocked even though it’s locked. Currently works to lock/unlock door and change thermostat setting, which is nice, but I would absolutely love this app if it worked without issue.
