AN EASY EXIT
Placed at the front door, the wireless departure remote adds a layer of convenience to leaving the house. Pressing the remote activates a preset departure sequence, closing all the smart roof windows throughout your home and activating the secured ventilation mode. The same departure scene exists in the App.

Ratings and Reviews
Lock Status Backwards
It appears that the lock status icon is backwards. When the house is locked the lock status shows “unlocked”. When the house is unlocked the lock status shows “locked”. This is counterintuitive to me. It should display the current status, not the action you want to take. Please fix in future update. Thanks.
Also, Allow landscape mode in iPad as most of us are now using iPads with keyboards like mini laptop computers. Having to turn the whole thing sideways to interact with an app which only allows portrait mode, like on the iPhone, is totally passé at this point. Make it work on the iPad in either Landscape or Portrait mode depending on the orientation of the device. Thanks.
I’d fire the programmers.
I write software for a living and if only one created this in my company, they would be looking for work. Let’s start with internals. This app eats power. I have an older iphone but it ate 50% of my battery in an hour. Verified by looking at power consumption in settings. The actual interface for controlling the blinds is good employing the more modern minimalist icons but doesn’t adjust space for more than two skylights and blinds. There is plenty of room. The real problem is the complicated set of menus to configure rooms and uses computer ease like “bind” “equipment”. This isn’t 2010, it’s 2018. Just drag the blind on top of the skylight. Double tap to unbind. Hold a second or so to locate or if modern phone push hard. A tutorial comes up showing a drag and explains verbally and in text what to do. Lastly the interface to pick is sometimes unresponsive. The hardware interface is good, keep you engineers but the rule is NEVER let engineers anywhere close to user interface or user function. It’s clear their implementation percolated into user interface.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for reporting a potential issue with the VELUX ACTIVE with NETATMO power consumption. Your information is now passed on to our developers. Also, thanks for your proposed improvements to the user interface in general.

When I am away, I no long have to wonder if the house is getting to hot with the sun or to shut all the windows wondering about the rain... A simple press on the app allows me to control my windows to open or to close and by how much I would like. If it ever starts to rain, my window's rain sensor will quickly close all the windows and the app will notify me of the window opened/closed/locked status. Best of all, there is also a timers which I can set the window(s) to automatically close Within an hour or any time within the hour in 5-minutes increments. Super convenient and it is password secured/protected.
