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.

Great app. Love all of the recent improvements. As a note, I've found that disabling battery optimization for the app in my phone's system settings helps the location to report properly in the background. I've also found it helps to install GPS Status & Toolbox to improve the location accuracy while in the background. One feature wishlist item- could the battery level be a separate sensor entity like in the iOS app? I use a template sensor now but wouldn't mind not having the extra config.
