No Alexa connectivity, frustrating UX
I bought the RM mini 3 so that I could control my Apple TV (4th gen) and projector via Alexa. I first downloaded the e-Control app per the BroadLink instruction manual. After about an hour of tweaking and wrestling with the very unintuitive interface in that app, I managed to get the app controlling both devices. Unfortunately when I went to set up the Alexa skill, the instructions there stated that “the previous version of the app is not supported” and to download the IHC app.
After downloading this app and resetting the RM mini 3 device, the app fails to connect to it. This feels like a very broken ecosystem and a shoddy product. What a waste of time.
Unable to set the On or Off time!!!
I love this device. It worked perfectly if you just use the On or Off button of the app manually.
However if you want to add a timer, neither the start time or the end Time was able to save. You can choose hour, minutes, and am/pm, then no way the time I selected would stick. This must be a bug. If they fix this problem, I will change my rating to 5-star.
Usted to be good
I have had this app controlling a few plugs, I was getting ready to purchase more devices to connect but I changed my mind. The last update made me have to reconfigure everything and at the end I can only control my devices when I am connected to my wifi at home. It is useless now. I need a product that gives me access to my devices away from home using my 4G /LTE.
So far the best alternative 5 star app and devices for your money is application named e-welink and the switches I am using are call sonoff, your welcome.
