I love the white noise machines but the Android app is terrible. I have to reboot my phone everytime I want to connect to them via the app. Even then it doesn't always connect, so the only way to turn off the white noise is to unplug them. Not great.
V 1.5 After receiving a note regarding the new version, I tried it. Wasted 30 minutes of my time. Could not connect via WiFi. Couldn't finish the set up. App died 4 times. Finally, I gave up. New version is just as bad as the original. V1: App repeatedly. Could not get the system set up. 3/7 Update: 3 days later still not working. Multiple interactions with support did not solve the issues. 3/8: Spent another 30 min with Tech Support - still does not work. Inconceivable that this is so bad and embarrassing for the company.
We use the Nightingale in our daughters room to help her get a good night's sleep. I have an automatic schedule turn the white noise on in the evening just before bedtime and it turns off in the morning after she wakes up. So far, we are loving the sound coverage in her room and have been really impressed with its ability to mask outside noises as well as inside noises. I have no hesitation to recommend this system. The set up took all of 5 minutes and I haven't had to change any settings since day one. I've seen some mention of the sound only coming through one device sometimes and, I have experienced this once every 12-15 days or so but, all i have to do is stop the sound using the app and then start it again and both units respond right away. I think this system works beautifully. For me, this is a very small issue as it works flawlessly 99% of the time.
Love the rain sound and it works great at blocking outside noise, but the app controlling it is junk. Worked for about 3 days then the devices failed to connect to the app and went off schedule. Not reliable and only one is working now at all even if only sporadically. If they could just deliver what they promise in terms of the app controls, it would be 5 stars in my book.
Very unstable. Going to try to return it or toss it in the trash. Previous review for 4 stars: Easy installation, but you might need a little patience in setting things up. The Bluetooth connectivity worked without any hitches as did WI-FI and the playing of the test sounds. Only after I created a new account (my original account was not accepted), did the setup menu appear and replace the blank screen that had initially been displayed. Setting up the sound volume and 'blanket' was very straight forward and now the only thing I need to figure out is the turning on of the nature sounds. One thing that REALLY impressed me about the company behind the product, Cambridge Sound Management, is that they immediately reached out to me after my initial rather negative review. Here's looking forward to the benefits of improved sleep!
Worst consumer electronic product ever produced.
