Just ok.. even after new update. Geofence is great. but..still Doesn't update correctly, especially what equipment is running. Doesn't read the HRV settings correctly, shows different settings than actual ecobee3 shows. HRV timer doesn't reset to off after. No widget! Be nice to see temp and system status as transparent widget next to my clock and weather and battery widgets.. etc. Can't access all settings. Other than changing temp etc that Almost all.the app is good for. It works no doubt, but needs some tweaking and features. And really, the iOS and Android version should be identical in those respects. Even the windows app and 3rd party apps outshine u in many ways.
I still have an issue with the scheduling - it's rather complicated and inflexible. Separately, now, with an update to the app, I now have to select my thermostat before I can make any changes. E Before I didn't have to. Don't a vast majority of homes have only 1 thermostat in their house? Maybe make it an option in the settings to be able to choose a thermostat or have a default one. Having to choose my 1 thermostat - adding an additional click for no reason - is annoying.
Update: the release for May 10th is so good. Navigation is a breeze now and the native geofence is solid. Just started using this today, April 3rd. Already totally confused by the back butt operation inside the deeper parts of the menu. It acts like it is stuck in some bad if then loop nd never takes you out of the menu. Have to end up using the oddly placed back carrot to get out. More to come.
The app makes you relogon every now and then. This is anoying. The tablet app is better than the phone app. It would be nice if we could run tablet app on our high end phones. Some functions cannot be done via the app. ie must use web site.
I have to further downgrade my rating. Over the past several weeks many more bugs have presented. Latest release improves the GUI. The App suffers from connectivity issues which forces me to give up and go to the web portal to remotely implement commands (the web portal seems to work 100% of the time). Also, the App does not accurately report which stage the system is currently running. Please fix these things!
New version adds a pointless thermostat listing screen where I have to select my single thermostat before I can do anything. Pointless step. Who thought this was a good idea? New version is a downgrade.
Say hi to the new ecobee4. Set it up with the latest version of the ecobee app!
