Stock app is not impressive and not up to current user interface standards. If you chose HS, you should do it for full customization the pro products offers. It beats Vera, samsung and wink in my opinion. The down side is the cost of pro version, time to create modern app on your own and occasional app crashes
The Homeseer Automation solution is still the best home automation software that I've used. It is by far the most powerful, flexible, and future-proof. I use it with Z-Wave devices,. as well as a variety of hard-wired ethernet controls and devices and it's the only solution that I've used that isn't reliant on a constant connection to the internet or some "cloud" provider. It has great support for POTS (plain old telephone system) back-up access to your house if you are somewhere without Internet access, and there are no monthly fees as an added bonus. If you use a bit of thought naming your devices and rooms, the ease of use between the HS3 Touch app as well as voice control through Alexa devices is amazing.
Great app It's extremely impressive when you take the time to develop a customized app. It just looks awesome. A couple of suggestions: 1) it can negatively affect battery life. So, I manually exit the app when I'm done interacting with it. 2) I have two properties that I interact with. So, I have to manually exit and then reload the app to select the second property. Those are the only negatives threat I see. Other than that, it works quite well on both my phones and numerous tablets.
Unimpressed I installed it to test drive very expensive HS3 home automation software which supposed to be much better than cheap home automation hubs. Hs3 works on my desktop but this app will not connect to it , I tried port forwarding and what not to make it work. Disappointing , especially for the price they charge for HS3 .
Doesn't work after update The app does't work, all it says on the black blank screen is V 1.0.144 at the top and a flash of message Connection failed with server. Check settings. I'm using local HomeTroller Zee S2, which I can control with a browser. I refreshed the password, restarted touch server, rebooted HomeTroller Zee S2 and ever reinstalled this app, and nothing. Please fix.
I can now connect over local network as well. Needed a restart of homeseer and windows allowance of the plugin to use the network (auto prompt when starting up homeseer where i clicked ok). sweet. Update: I just found out that clicking the homeseer logo in the bottom brings up voice control apparently powered by Google now. That is really nice sine from summer 2016 it actually works in real life
