THE GOOD: We use this app for our American Standard 940 and 950 thermostats. We love that we can see runtime history for the 940 single zone. We love that we can adjust the temperature using temporary and permanent holds. We love being able to see the damper status of the 950 for our 3 zones. NOW THE LACKING: unlike the 940, we can't see runtime history of the 950, I think it's because we have more than 1 zone. We HATE that we can't use the app for changing the scheduling of either system.
App is OK. The product is pretty solid. Recently I keep getting a red pop up that says unable to connect to nexia. In about 20 seconds, it goes away and the app functions as it should. After any action or button pressed, I get "unknown error has occurred" but the function works (like turning on or off a light). It's annoying that the red pop up happens because I can't do anything until it goes away.
The newer versions of this app amounts to being spyware. Despite it being indicated that geo fencing, and with it location tracking, may be turned off doing so in app settings has no impact. The only way to get it to stop is to kill the app... each and every time the device is rebooted. This needs to be addressed.
Update: Uninstalled again. App says geofencing can be disabled in settings, but it still will not allow you to stop geofencing without killing the task and disabling location. Until this is fixed, the app will remain a data big and still not be worth using. It works, but since the recent update, it constantly reverts to the temperature seeing that was set before the app update. I have to manually set it with the thermostat in order to change the setting.
Fix please. I have geofencing disabled but still geofencing runs in the background. If I disable the location in app settings the app flashed when opened and is rendered useless, meaning location has to be granted access it the app doesn't work. Why give the option if it won't work without the location. Please fix.
Ugh! This used to work great ; I love being able to control the thermostat from anywhere and check the runtime history. Now this geofencing thing is a disaster and the app just flashes like a strobe light. I'm reinstalling again to see if that fixes the problem.
* Fixed an issue that blocked users running Android 4.x from entering the app
* Temporarily disabled voice control feature on Android 4.x
* We expect to be able to re-enable this shortly
