Aplication has a many bugs. But the main issue I spent 45 dollar to buy their the "Smart socket", but there is only on/off button works, timer dosn't work at all. Seems to be the Efergy doesn't want spent money to simple QA and they prefer to leave critical bugs as is.
Upgrade the Firmware ! I have two of the unit, the v23 Firmware can't connect to the internet. You have to upgrade the Firmware... It took many2 attempts within 3 days to get the 'right time' to upgrade the firmware to v28. Then it connects to the internet reliably. Btw the last few weeks they released v29 Firmware.
Works ok when manually doing it but the timer function works poorly. The days I set constantly change to other days. No idea why they don't stick to what I set. It shouldn't be hard to fix this ay. What a lame company.
My 2 units of Ego died in just 1 year of usage in 2016. After getting another 2 new ones, now 1 year later, 1 bites the dust. I can conclude that each unit only last about a year.
This app is mature. It should have fixed its bugs in the years I've had my 3 egos. Scan has NEVER once worked. AP connect works maybe 1 in 50 times with no rhyme or reason. Instructions are incomplete as to what to do after you direct connect. Sometimes your networks are listed mostly not. Even when they are they fail. Just spent 2 hours and have 1 of 3 on my new SSID. Of the 1 device that works the schedule just randomly changes itself (not set to random). Switch does not even obey that. NEVER AGAIN.
Shows potential It would be good if it exported the data to a csv file like it's parent app efergy engage does Maybe you can and I just can't work it out Would be even better if it also interfaced through a web page as well the same as it's parent but without being able export the data it's just another expensive toy Hopefully they will update this app so the data can be made use of then it will be very useful Pity the data can't be picked up in the efergy engage app I have both a efergy engage with a hub and the ego but the ego won't talk to the efergy hub
