If you're using the homseer mobile app, this app is a must have accompanyment. Once you get your favorite devices selected, this will become your goto control app. The plugin on the controller side installs and runs without any issues, better than many other hs plugins that way. I'd live to see an Android widget added, but its pretty darn handy as-is.

If Dashboard could replace Imperihome this would be the best app... All the 'ingredients' are there, but Dashboard have not been improved in a long time. They are too difficult to create (need text edit in PC to make it fast) and missing required features like ImperiHome has.

Thank you for taking time to leave a review and for the feature suggestion. Just wanted to let you know, the Dashboards feature has been live for a few months now. More details: http://hsbuddy.avglabs.net/pages/setup.html#dashboards

Technically proficient app. Changing device state involves long press to bring up a separate pop-up with device controls. So, a little clunky for simple app control. But it's free, so not complaining. Works well
