Ratings and Reviews
Great idea but needs to be reliable. Haven't noticed any issues with the doors but we always use the security lock anyway. the thermostat turns off/on randomly even when not on auto. The app only works to control the thermostat temperature but doesn't respond when changing functions like COOL/HEAT/AUTO/OFF. If the thermostat functions were 100% accurate and reliable I would give it 5 stsrs, because that's the main usage we have for the sistem in general. Nothing like waking up in the middle of the night all sweaty because the ac turned off on its own or coming back home from a long day to realize its still running when you dnt need it.
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.
Exists because it’s the lowest bidder
I have tried many smart home apps but this one is the worst. It periodically logs me out for no discernible reason and it clearly won the contract for my apartment complex because it was the lowest bidder and cheapest.
It’s very buggy and the smart lock button does not actually tell you if the door is already locked or unlocked. It just switches from locked to unlocked in the app without any reference to the status of the actual lock. This means sometimes the app says ‘locked’ even though the door is unlocked so I have to press ‘unlock’ and then ‘lock’ which is very clunky and annoying. Also if I am out and I need to check to see if I remembered to lock the door, I can’t rely on this app to tell me if it’s locked.
This app could be so much better but right now it isn’t. 1/5
