I have to hit the refresh button multiple times before it will allow me to change the temperature. After upgrading to Android 8.0, the widget formatting is off and chops the bottom of the numbers off.
After last update screen widget doesn't update . Displays wrong temperature.
Would be nice if there were a specific button to command it to "connect directly" it seems to not try anymore, and the stat responded much more quickly to changes when it did.
This new UI is much better. Unfortunately there seems to be no way to tell if the thermostat actually accepted any changes. Sometimes I will change the temperature or turn the system off from my phone and nothing will happen. When I refresh the app I'll often find that the settings never actually changed. Edit: I no longer recommend this thermostat. Get a nest. For the last year I have had to change the temperature 3 sometimes 4 times before it takes.
Have used this with 5 units, and all have worked perfectly. Highlights of this system: 1-thermostat continues to follow scheduled program even if internet is down, 2-can connect via pc as well as phone/tablet, 3-has hourly usage recorded, 4-can connect directly to the thermostat as long as you are on the same network (even if internet is down), 5-ALWAYS reconnects to the internet/router automatically after a disconnection
This has been a solid app for a few years now, but recently I've noticed a couple bugs: 1) sometimes temperature change settings dont apply to the thermostat, and it takes a couple of attempts before the stat accepts a change. 2) the runtime per hour feature randomly stopped working, and hasn't worked for several weeks now.
