By Avi-On Labs, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Avi-on is proud to announce the release of Avi-on Pro, simple Bluetooth Mesh lighting controls that are easy to install, easy to change, and easy to live with.
With Avi-on Pro, you can program and control your entire home, office, building, or landscape using bulbs, fixtures, wireless and wired switches, sensors, and other lighting products from major brands and installers.
New! Basic or Pro Features to Fit Your Needs
The Avi-on app allows you to program lights, switches, and sensors using the same control system--indoors and out. There are two levels of accounts: Basic and Pro.
> In general, the features in Basic* include instant set-up, secure login, schedules with sunrise/sunset, and countdown timers.
> The features in Pro* are designed for managing whole building, home, office, and landscape installations. Depending on your product's manufacturer, Pro Accounts includes all of the Basic features plus some or all of the following additions: device favorites and sorting, grouping, schedules and scenes for devices plus groups, and/or transitions.
> With both Basic and Pro, there are device-dependent features such as dimming and/or color-changing. Purchase of the "Avi-on Remote Access Bridge" or RAB gives you global access and 24/7 clock synchronization using the Internet, plus optional compatibility with Amazon's Echo and Dot in certain regions.*
The Avi-on app allows you to manage and control any Avi-on compatible device. With Avi-on, you can control and program your network with no wi-fi hub or gateway required. All schedules and settings are saved on the local devices, and they work as programmed with or without the Internet or your phone nearby.
Avi-on compatible devices include the following products:
• GE Brand Bluetooth Switches and Dimmers
• Avi-on Indoor and Outdoor Switches, Fixture Adaptors, Controllers and Remote Access Bridge
• ERP LED Drivers
• SPJ Flexlink Outdoor Controls
• More coming soon…
Why a login and password?
Avi-on is designed for multi-device networks, and users who care about security. Your password-protected account allows only authorized users to program your network, enables many users to control many devices with a single account, and provides instant settings recovery if you lose or change phones.
How does "Instant Set Up" work?
Once you have powered your Avi-on compatible device by plugging it in or wiring it, set up takes only a few moments. Stand near the powered device(s). Download the app and register your account and password.
From the app's dashboard, press the "Big Plus" button to add your first device. Avi-on's Bluetooth Mesh technology will list any Avi-on devices that are in range, and invite you to add them to your account.
Once qualified devices have been added, you can instantly use your Basic or Pro features to control and program individual devices or groups.

What's New in Version 1.7.3
Bug fixing and performance improvements
I use 5 of these things to control everything from landscaping lighting to recirculating water pumps. They worked really well and were easy to set up. All was good until came time for upgrade.
App upgrade was bad, firmware upgrade on the devices was a nightmare.
Upgraded the app several times over the past year. Issues include lost schedule, lost devices and now, duplicated devices. Each of my device now have a clone. Removing the duplicate made it worse. The device stopped working completely. Forcing the device to resync with the app just caused the app to crash.
Then came the firmware upgrade. There were two upgrades in the last few months. That doesnt sound too bad except the firmwate upgrade has to be done on each device individually and it requires turning Bluetooth on/off couple of times during the upgrade process. It's a time consuming process and to make things worse, something would usually go wrong during or after the upgrade.
I haven't figured out how to fix the latest batch of issues. Might have to go the nuclear option and do a hard reset on all the devices and start over. Not looking forward to it.
Avi-on, you have a nice product but your software department needs to get the act together. A device like this should just work. It shouldn't be a hassle or a headache to run. It performs a very simple task so just keep it simple. Please!
I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and have had no issues. If you follow the setup in the app you will have no setup issues. Love the product and how simple it is to setup and use.
