Home Assistant and it's developers work tirelessly to provide a way for devices from multiple brands to truly work together, and Home Assistant is by far the most polished yet customizable attempt so far. A lot of users leaving bad reviews don't seem to understand that this isn't (yet) meant to be a turnkey solution. It's a toolbox for the power user to tinker with their smart home and dial it in exactly the way they want it, which may require some work and light coding along the way.

Great app, really miss "enable all sensors" though. It was such an important feature as it's a chore having to enable 60+ sensors one by one manually. Sort of understand why it was removed, but doesn't make it any less inconvenient to everyone that wants to enable all sensors (or most of them) and doesn't justify totally removing that altogether. Should have left it, perhaps with a clear warning and confirmation that battery life will be affected if you enable all sensors. Outside of that one seriously important (to me and others) thing, solid app as always. Hope to have that back though.

App is great and would have been 5 stars, but the recent update that added Android 11 power menu buttons changed how location is reported. It would always regularly turn on the GPS to get a position, but it was always very brief. Just a flash. Now it keeps GPS on for a minute or longer every time I unlock my phone. It seems to be tied to power menu controls. If I remove all Home Assistant controls it reverts the old behavior. I was using only lights and scenes as power menu tiles.
