Technology moves along

I have a couple of old security cameras that have seen better days, so I decided to try the newest TP-Link one. Much easier to set up than the old ones, and this control app is a definite improvement. Minor issues were that the shortcut was initially confusing (it isn’t an “Apple Shortcut” but is a stand-alone widget), and that using it to set/clear privacy mode only shows a *tiny* dot to indicate success (needs to be bigger and more visible). But these aren’t deal-breakers. The cloud video storage is good value, but you don’t have to use it. A bonus is that the notification of any motion will go to your Apple watch if you have one. Highly recommended.

Terrible Design

This App will drive you crazy with the constant orientation switching. The cameras fail to connect much of the time. (The cameras with their own hub are much more reliable). They should stick to landscape mode and just scale back to present all of the settings on one screen. The default screen should be a display of 6 cameras, then a swipe to the next 6, etc. Upon launch, the program should immediately poll and buffer all the cameras simultaneously so that you can quickly see at least some of the cameras during a security emergency. It does no good when you have a prowler lurking outside and the “thinking wheel” is just pinning around. Like many Apps, they’re overthinking the interface. Default presentation = 6 screens, tap on any screen to blow it up foll screen. Tap once to return to full screens OR tap twice to see control options for that camera, including recordings.

Smart lights aren’t smart at all

Very limited themes. Can only seem to be able to edit the two terrible default themes and not creat new ones. Timing and transition options are really limited in themes. More importantly, themes cannot be applied to a group of lights, nor can the lights seem to act in unison with one another. When using to control a group of lights the functionality is even more limited. Can’t apply a theme (such as cycling through the rainbow of colors) to a group of lights at once. Instead, you have to click into each individual bulb and set the theme, and none of the bulbs are in sync with one another. It is a terrible user experience and looks terrible. If you’re looking for cheap smart RGB lights, the Feit RGB lights are pretty much the same and the app can do much more and the lights are way easier to control. I sent back the 20 lights I bought since they have no group smart functionality.
