App Fails To Connect Multiple Times


I have received the message "Failed to Connect, License Agreement Required...." This message comes up when I am on the Control4 network. After talking with tech support we un/re installed the app and it seemed to work fine. Then last night my iPhone connected to our guest network without me trolling it to do so. Got the same message. I then turned the WiFi off and use cell service to try and connect, got the same message. And these messages always seem to happen on the weekends!

I believe it would be helpful if there are appropriate messages for whatever the issues are. For instant, "not connected to home network" is your on another network and your unaware of the setting change or the WiFi is off. This message "Failed to Connect, License Agreement Required.... Contact your dealer" reads to me that I'm not a Control4 owner or that I'm using a device that hasn't been added to the system. Very confusing.

But just before I typed this review that app once again gave me this message when I was on our home network. Closed the app and it reopened working fine again. But I'm sure this will happen again, I have no doubt. Hopefully these confusing messages and lack of connection will be addressed sooner than later, because at 10 o'clock at night trying to figure out why my music isn't turning on is frustrating to me and not at all impressive to our guests that are waiting for entertainment to turn on.

Needs UI update!


I love my control4 system and the app is functional, but badly in need of a UI update! For some reason, the previous update finally appeared to support the improved resolution of the iPhone 6/6+, but this newest update seems to have taken that support away! Now that the iPhone 6 has been around for over a year, really unacceptable that they still haven't updated the app to support it. I'd really like to see the entire UI overhauled, but at a minimum, please support the improved screen resolutions! The new background color is also pretty ugly. It's really the only UI thing I've seen changed in a while, and was not a change for the better.

Functionality wise, the update is fine. I haven't had any issues with scenes not working or any other previous functionality being lost.

Wait 5 minutes???


2 star review:
Control 4 is fine when it works. Various times throughout the day, I press a command to have no response. My dealer told me to wait 5 minutes and try again. Uh huh... my God I spent a lot of money on this for that type of service.

It’s also cute that in order to use the watch feature, i need to restart my watch thereby eliminating any usefulness that the watch app would have. In that time, I can grab my phone.

There is so much potential here. I wish Control 4 would get their “stuff” together. Until then please stay away. Try literally anything else. I’ve spent 1000s on this and is one of my life regrets.

4 star review:
Update: Seemingly the day after I wrote my original review my Control 4 system has not been offline once. Like I said, it’s fine when it works and I’m happy it has been working flawlessly for over a month. I also discovered I can press and hold on the watch app and it will reconnect to the system so I no longer need to restart my watch to make that feature work. Still ridiculous that I have to do that though.
