Update: not sure what happened with one of the recent updates, but if I use the app at home, as soon as I leave and my phone switches over to 4g, the app pops up saying it lost its connection to my hub. Highly annoying. As far as the rest of the app, it works and that's about it. App hasn't changed much since it's debut and it shows. UI is extremely outdated and several old bugs remain unfixed. Insteon as a whole is behind the curve on home automation despite being one of the oldest companies in the game.
Why do I have to restart and put in my password everyone I open this app. It's terrible. I love my insteon products by this app makes me want to buy another brand and switch them all out. Insteon you are seriously hurting your product with this app. You're lucky Alexa came along.
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. By the way, if your hub doesn't have Internet, it is impossible to connect through your phone over Wifi to set anything up. The hub ALWAY needs to be able to reach the cloud, otherwise consider this whole system a paperweight.
Does what it is supposed to do. How come no android wear support yet? I don't understand why I cannot set the public IP address manually. My Hub is getting the wrong IP and I can't access remotely. Very disappointed.
Every time I want to use this app, I have to kill it in my app manager and relaunch it. Otherwise it hangs indefinitely trying to reload the current hub state.
This app is a failure. Too bad. Such great hardware, but this app should be scraped and an intuitive well designed app should be built.
