What's up with this? Updated to the latest hub in order use it with the Amazon Echo. Now the app doesn't update screen icons and I have to close out the program and reopen it constantly in order for it to work at all. This app is installed on a Nexus 9 running the latest Android OS and on Droid Turbo running Android 5.1. Both exhibit the same issues. Update: After doing a factory reset on all of my devices and rebuilding my entire setup the app is performing better.
Would love Widget Support I've found myself hunting for the app, waiting for it to open, then pressing the same one or two devices frequently. It would be great if there could be a toggle button for single devices on the home screens so I can simply place it in an easy access area to single tap turn on lights or toggle garage. IFTTT support would be great as well.
App Not Flexible at all! This app does not allow you to customize or move the order of icons for Devices/Rooms/Scenes. They are placed automatically in Alphabetical order and that it. You have to live with it!! Also, one of the most annoying things is that for the 6 or 8 key dimmer switches, it doesn't come up as how it looks. It comes up as a basic switch, and then you have to click on the "+" every time, in order to expand it to view the whole keypad. Ridiculous! This should have been an option in the settings to choose default.
Does not Work on OnePlus with Marshmallow This app did not work at all on my One plus One phone with Marshmallow. Crashes on the login screen. Not the first time this year that an update rendered the app useless on my phone. Luckily I have an iPad for backup whenever the android app fails due to updates.
Don't Buy!! Return to retail store ASAP Get yourself a SmartThings hub or Hue instead. Insteon doesn't care about Android. All development efforts go to iOS. 2 years of waiting n still same olé laggy, buggy, outdated app. Still waiting for widgets, G Wear, G TV, IFFTT and now Google Home support. The latter should be a no brainer. Example: Wear was released a whole year b4 the Iwatch. But when the Iwatch was released it already had support baked into the Insteon iOS app. For us "just use Tasker"... Unacceptable!!! Worst investment I've EVER made.
Very convoluted Devices, rooms, scenes. The differentiation between these "types" get very muddy very quickly. Mixture of insteon and legacy X10 devices are hard to manage. Scheduling separate devices or scenes to come on or go off at the exact same time is not possible. Three separate devices or scenes cannot all be scheduled to turn on at 5:30pm and off at 12am. They're separate scenes because I want to be able to turn them on manually separately. Why can't I set them to be scheduled to turn on/off at the same time?
