Not so "Simple Commands" more like "impractical commands". When you set it up with Alexa, you have to say "Alexa, Ask Simple commands to 'Close the Garage'" it's impractical and it's not easy setting it up the first time either. The fact that I had to look online to see how others set it up says it all. It more simple for me to just keeps using my button that came with my Garage.

Somehow my review got deleted, this app has a horrible learning user interface. There's no guidance and I have been struggling adding an item, even though there's a connection and synced. Update: After minutes it finished recognizes an item! How long does it take to sync!? And choosing the time zone is a nightmare, there's like a million options. UI needs help!

The app has made arming and disarming Ring system automated. Yes I have to sign in sometimes. To me that is no big deal. What is crazy is the time zone is different from Pensacola Florida, it is eastern time zone, so I set it one hour or so beyond the desired time. This app saves me time especially when I forget before bed.
