This product is very wonky. Over the last year the lights come on at their own will, or not. System can be reset to make it behave for a short time, but then will go out to lunch as soon as your phone goes to sleep. I have to unplug the system to turn it off most of the time.
Tested this out before installing my lighting strips. I'm glad I did. I could connect with the controller, but I couldn't change the color or brightness of the lights. I could add it to my WiFi network, but then the app wouldn't connect with the controller over the network. Multiple resets, reboots and reinstalls, I managed to be able to make the lights change while directly connected, but still couldn't connect on the network, then couldn't change the color after resetting again. Not worth the frustration, I'm taking my lights back for a refund.
App works most of the time but sometimes wont connect. Timers don`t work at all. Would be nice to have them on a timer but they just dont work. Too bad.
Bought the peak 1 2 and 3 in spring 2016. Want to use it on my new deck and deck canopy that i just finished building in sept.'17 Just plugged it in now in the house to check it out. App doesnt work. Cant connect to wifi controller. Reset it twice; unplugged whole unit twice. Still no connection. I've read most comments left by others and they are having simillar problems. Peaks' reply is that they are working on a fix...but its been months worth of complaints and months worth of promises from Peak that they are working on it. Still have not read any comments thanking Peak for a fix. Hundreds of dolllars spent on a product that doesnt work and/or a company that doesnt back up their product with timely updates and/or fixes.

The app works ok, all things considered, however I don't need or want another app to control my lights. It would be ideal if the lights could be discovered and controlled with Samsung Smartthings hub or at least support IFTTT to allow more automation through third parties. The hardware is great and works outdoors, but there's no need for you guys to force the use of your own software. Create open APIs or IFTTT support and this is a 5 star product.
Crashing App This app crashes every time it is run! It cannot find available Peak controllers most of the time. It is fine when it does work.
Events are now synchronized from the controller to the devices allowing for event scheduling from multiple devices.
Improved connectivity between the app and the controllers.
Improvements to groupings of multiple controllers.
Bug fix to resolve app crashes.
