The 5ghz thing is a real pain with a dual band router. The only workaround I have found its to go into router settings and separate the 2 bands. Add the devices on the 2.4ghz and then change it back again. Seems to work fine after that but shouldn't have to do this.
Update Jan 2018. Scenes are working again but there is no more history available now?? PLEASE, get this right! Update: MY SCENES HAVE STOPPED WORKING!?!?! Love the theory of this if only it was working!! theres a feature which I would LLLLLOVE to see which is a timer option in the scenes! I.e. I'd like to be able to have the fan in my toilet starting 1 minute after lights are switched on, PLUS turn it back off x minutes after I turned lightd back off. THAT WOULD BE AWESOME ! Let me know if anything like this is on the cards PLEASE!
Update: It's been over 2 months and this app is still using iver 20% of my battery. Why is it still draining my battery??? Loved the app prior to the lastest update but now drains my battery in a few hours. Uses more power than the screen does. Wish they would put in a feature to change buttons to momentary switches.
When they work, they are great but all devices drop connection frequently then you have to reconnect each application one by one. This just makes you think, shall I just turn the item on the old fashioned way, it's quicker. This morning I am unable to reconnect any devices?? The idea is great but it ends up making your life harder having to constantly reconfigure all the time.
I have a couple of Sonoff smart plugs that require me to use this app. My plugs constantly don't work because they say there is a server problem. As I'm writing this review the plugs seen to work with the app but not with Alexa or Google Home. This app is very unreliable and I would avoid any other hardware that uses it.
Scenes no longer work. You cannot add, edit or remove scenes. Still getting issues with Sonoff devices talking to the server and so are not WiFi operational! Full WiFi signal but devices are so unreliable. Do the servers have the capacity for all worldwide traffic? Maybe distributed servers is the answer if not.
1.Optimize overload protection feature
