bugs bugs bugs Seems its getting worse with each upgrade. Keeps turning things off at random and none of the backup recipes run when this happens. Almost killed all my fish in my fishtank over the weekend. Due to smart things turning off a switch at 3 am in the morning. (No I wasnt awake to do that). really disapointed in this app.. I wouldnt trust this hub as an alarm system or to control any door lock thats for sure.. UPDATE: seems to work well with this latest update.
Overly simplistic, no voice Overly basic UI. Needs better conditionals and state restoration (e.g.., save a device state before responding to a trigger, restore that state afterward). Needs voice support (you can control it from Google Home, but not Google Now... I want to be able to use my phone too... seems like it should be easy to do).
Great except.... Routines never trigger on location. System announces my arrival, but never triggers routine edit: since new update phone presence hasnt been detected on any phone in the house since arrival.
This is a good start but there's one thing the app lacks: lighting scenes. I've spent hours researching this one topic and it seems that everything you really want to do with lighting is so unbelievably complex it makes me want to throw the whole system out. There are "smart" apps and "virtual switches" (that require a technology expert to install because they aren't list in the - wait for it - switches list) and if this then that nonsense and triggers and on and on. Just because the app only allows ONE dim level for all of the lights you turn on in a Routine. It's mindbogglingly stupid this is excluded.
Frustrating Great app when everything is working, that being said, it is barely ever working correctly. Every time I try and add a user it results in a problem.
Please add Android Wear support A good app. Needs to cache data such as images and smart apps! I wanted to suggest a feature: please can we have an Android Wear app. We could use this to easily run routines and see the state of the home. Also it would be nice for us to send the history of the notifications as well on Android Wear😀
