Local - cloud
Much to my dismay, I had an interruption in my Internet service, therefore this would no longer work. It is a requirement, that you have access to the cloud. Do not worry, it appears to be free, but that one drawback. If you don’t have a Local controller, you can’t control anything. Up to this point, I would’ve rated with five stars. They need to figure out how to add in local control in case, the cloud is not available.
Good but needs improvement
Functions well, I rely on the timers and I’ve never had an issue with that part. Setup can be difficult, the app interface is hard to understand at first, I got used to it. It looks like the app was designed strictly for function, but more functions would be nice. I would like to able to suspend the timers for holidays and such, but the only way to do that is to delete the timers. How about a suspend function? It would also be nice to organize the scenes I create instead of only the order I make them, same for timers.
X10 WiFi Controller works well.
Overall I’m pleased so far with the X10 WiFi controller. Setup was a little bit of a challenge, in that I use static IP addresses for all devices in my house. But knowing the work-arounds it was not too much of a hassle.
Adding all my devices was simple. However, a great enhancement would be having the ability to drag and re-order your devices once you’ve added them.
Setup of the Dusk/Dawn feature was a bit confusing. You have to add ONE at a time, save it and then go back in to add the other (even though you have access to both screens when editing setting up the feature).
I’ve had a few issues where the “sync” feature fails and errors out. I’ve found that just trying a second or third time works.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
