I'm a newer user so I've never had the older version. Have the fire alarms, both wired and wifi compatible. The app tells me my internet is down before anything else in the house as well as when it's back up. Great responses to alarms and notification settings that work for my life. Interface is usable and had no problem setting it up after download.

It is now more clicks to get to the place to set arm or disarm. The button to get to the arm/disarm page doesn't always work or pop up. The All Clear button does not work at all so I now have hundreds of unresolved videos. Previewing the Unresolved Events doesn't work- when I click on it my phone goes black every time and I have to close the app and start again. I can't view any of the videos that are recorded. I did reach out and call on Friday,1/14/22. They never called me back.

I believe the device works well overall. My experience is that the app drops connectivity with the device and I received errors like "lost connection with the cloud" many times. The alarm is extremely loud when testing and you hope it will work when it's critically needed.
