Good ... but unable to view scene members. Love the devices displayed in a list. The ability to see the status of each device is perfect. What would be great is On/Off control for each device right on the list screen. Press and hold to brighten/dim ... just like the actual Insteon switch. Control buttons on right of list and status on left as part of icon. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for your review and feedback. You can actually view device members for a scene in the homeboy app. For Android users, there is a 'view details' menu item option from the scene screen. It will show you some scene information including the device actions for that scene. And thanks for the suggestion about control right from the list screens!

Cannot use to configure, only activate or deactivate devices, which reduces it's usefulness to me, but per the developer reply, it is out of their control.

Hi, Daniel. Sorry to hear you're disappointed with Homeboy. Third parties have limited ability to manage Insteon devices, so we've built a fast, lightweight app to simply control their devices and scenes. We tried to be clear about that in our product description and hope you'll consider giving Homeboy a fair shot based on what it's designed to do.
