Ratings and Reviews
Everything worked well until iOS 15.1
I can connect to the cloud network and control the spa, but cannot connect locally. It says that “Precise Location Disabled”, but it is not when I go to location services and look at it. I have toggled everything on and it still doesn’t allow local mode. I am not real upset, since I can get into Cloud Mode.
Otherwise, the interface is okay. It would be best if you didn’t have a slider to adjust and just had a simple and intuitive up and down set point arrows for setting the spa temp. The slider sometimes gets confused when I am trying to scroll the screen for the jets and light portion below.
I wouldn’t give the app a 1, but it does need a little work and is almost there!
Works for me
I have been using this app for about 6 months and it works for me most of the time. There have been occasions in which I couldn’t connect to my spa, but they have been rare, and I have always been able to connect by repeated attempts. When I am connected the app works reliably. It basically duplicates the functions of the deck-mounted controller but in a more user-friendly and sleeker interface. Additionally you can set the spa controller’s clock time by syncing it’s time with your phone’s time, so it’s just a one-button task.
I have a very basic spa and I wonder if that’s why my experience with this app seems to be better than that of others.
Wish-list items would be to be able to receive an alert when spa reaches desired temperature, and to have Alexa compatibility.
This without a doubt, the WORSE app I have attempted to use. I worked in the IT world for nearly 40 years, so I have attempted more than a few. Balboa should end their embarrassments and take this thing off the store. It simply does not work. I deleted it, but I wanted to do it harm.
** A year later or more… still disrespect this app. Not developed by highly skilled professionals. I have found out it needs a very powerful Wi-Fi signal. I recently upgraded my equipment to mesh gear. I decided to reinstall the adapter and try one more time. After monkeying around with the clumsy setup, I actually got it to work. Better than nothing - does what I want to do now, but it was a huge effort which it should not have been. Going to two stars with no fanfare.
