Ratings and Reviews
Ok software and products
The products are easy to install and configure, however after the latest update my heating schedule stopped working and had the set point changed to 27 & I am unable to re-link it to the hub. As a result I had to change the schedule in the actual thermostat. Are there some communications bugs that have been introduced with the latest upgrade in the app? This should be the same as before and should remain solid even after display and functionality tweaks. I think prior to any new updates the software should be throughly tested as it is trivial to have a working system and also users could be communicated in a better way in case there has been a mistake. What good is it to be able to add photos or dusk and dawn functions, when the app is struggling in the setup process and communications to some units? I have enjoyed to use lightwaverf for the past 3 years. Old ladies are not that techie, and will struggle specially if the heating is playing funny or sockets stop responding.
This needs to be fixed as a priority!
Unintuitive app - badly needs in-app help
UPDATE FOR LATEST VERSION: Some improvement in the way the app works, for example dawn and dusk times are now actually correct! However the app no longer seems to retain my login details as I am now every time I want to change or pause/un-pause a timer I have to log in again. 5/10 for the update 😠
I don't often write reviews but felt I needed to for this app. The Lightwave product line is a good concept and apparently very flexible although so far i have only installed one electric switch. The real problem I am finding only after trying to set up this one switch with a schedule is that the app is just not intuitive. If I was more unkind I would say it was downright confusing. And this is an upgrade on previous apps!! Have the developers used any customer feedback??
Having said all that, it wouldn't have been soooo bad if the app had some reasonable help options but it doesn't. Come on Lightwave, if you continue to produce apps like this you will lose your customers!!
Just completely ruined
Lightwaverf listen to what your customers are saying, or say goodby to your customers, we won’t put up with this rubbish. You should be be pro’s at this now, it really doesn’t take a company this long to get it right.
Scrap all you have done and go back to the last version before your trashed a perfectly working app.
This is the 5th update since they decided to ruin a perfectly working app, yet it still have all the same problems as the first release.
Why go and change I do not know, before this my lightwaverf kit worked for years.
Lightwaverf, please give us the choice of going back to the old version. This version is unusable.
Your latest up date, they said they had fixed the logging out issue but it just logged out.
❌keeps logging out, it is relentless!!!❌
It’s really annoying. Just scarp all you have done and put the last version back up.
It’s got so many things wrong with this version, I don’t know where to begin.
Why did lightwaverf have to go and make all my equipment useless, I don’t know if they are doing it in house or they have got a developer in, but it’s a joke, the app does not work.
Really poor effort lightwaverf!
If there is a process to make you accountable for making all my invested equipment useless I shall be looking into it. It is really not acceptable to leave users with an app that is useless.
You have taken away features and made the app unreliable.
