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.
Not very good Disconnects often, automatic rules fail unless you have the app open. No API for things like IFTTT. Poor for advanced automation.
Works instantly, no fees, great potential. UPDATE: This is a good project with great hardware. There is still a lot to do, don't think there are enough devs working on it, their "roadmap" is moving slowly. Project is over a year old now without many improvements or notable hardware (no, I don't need overpriced Bose junk). It is a functioning system but needs to support more products and sensors. Down another star... Hurry up or you will be replaced!
Awesome. I have used this app since day one.
Software quality dreadful This app has failed to connect to my hub three times in the last week. Support person directed me to reinstall. This worked for a day. The next day, it happened again. A reload worked again - for a day. This evening, we came home in the dark and tried to turn a light on. It failed again. Reload of app on my phone did not fix problem. We stumbled into a dark house. A reload on my tablet fixed it. Test this app. This is not acceptable. Also needs ifttt. Connect has potential but needs work - badly.
Horrible UI, intrusive app, AVOID I bought Staples Connect on basis of features, despite complaints about the app. Big Mistake. App appears to be "designed" to be the only thing used on a device, always in the foreground. If it ever goes to the background, even for a second, it has to reconnect and starts back at the useless front page, instead of where you left off. That's not the worst thing, though. The worst thing is that every time there's an even momentary network event (switching from wifi to 4g, etc.) the app will pop to the foreground with a screen informing you it has lost the connection, interrupting whatever it is you're doing, with no way to disable that absolutely broken experience. Returning the hub this weekend, will try SmartThings next.
