Good, solid platform UPDATE: This platform has not been updated in a while. Still works well, but no new features have been added in a very long time and Staples doesn't seem to be actively supporting it. Likely it is either dying of will be sold off. PREVIOUS REVIEW: Is very stable, works even if Internet connection is down, and has plenty of protocol options. UI could use a refresh and still waiting for more advanced features.
The app is buggy bordering on useless. It interrupts whatever you're doing to open itself and tell you it's been disconnected (at which point you usually have to re-enter your login information). The developer (Zonoff) doesn't respond at all to support requests in their forums or via email. Updates are few and far between and almost always contain only one or two device additions but no improvement on the app itself. No IFTTT or Tasker integration. It's fine when it works, but it's disruptive more often than not.
Works great if it's all you know... Leaving for work each morning the app leaps to the main screen, kicking Waze to the curb and flooding my car with white light, since Waze was in night mode. If any other app did that it would be uninstalled immediately. But, since I can't replace this app with a better one, I just have to deal with it... and I think the developers know that. Shame on you for pushing out such an inferior and slow product.
WORST AUTOMATION APP EVER Can't do anything with it. You cant do logic, there is no, if, or, and, timers, etc... Can't combine inputs. Can't say if motion sensor and door... Sucks... Wish I could just use tasker. This app makes hub USELESS
Buggy, slow, no shortcuts App is buggy. Opens by itself to tell you that it has disconnected. Other hubs have better apps. No shortcuts or widgets.
