Unreliable. Sometimes it connects, other times not, and trust to make you connect through the remote hub, greying out individual blinds and rooms. Bit annoying really.
Had trouble initially with getting the hub to discover the shades, without an error message to explain where to go to fix the problem. I called tech support and walked through the process again and now have full use of the app. I'm happy with the functionality.
A little confusing to set up initially, but works fine once configured. You need to input schedules using Android version 5. For some reason, schedules input using version 6 do not work. Took some research, but finally figured it out. Customer support was no help.
It works, most of the time. Suggestions for improvements. 1) App intermittently will miss a shade (i.e. if I have set up app to raise all shades, sometimes when executing scene, 3 of 4 shades will rise - I have no issue communicating using the puck and I have plenty of repeaters) 2) App only allows remote control through scenes. Would be nice to allow remote control of a single shade. 3) Latency of updating configuration for remote use is high (I have seen it take 2 or 3 minutes before changes are reflected in remote operation). 4) A few times my remote connection showed no scenes, no setup. Closing/reopening app fixed. 5) Navigation on app is a little confusing. App sometimes uses an app bar back button for nav. Other times (for example when editing a scene), there are no nav controls in the dialog. And need to use android back button as the nav element. Would suggest putting an explicit "ok" or "set" button on the dialogs.
App sucks for android. Never works correctly.
Very easy to use. Have your dealer set everything up for you and it will be trouble free.
