What's New in Version 1.1.6
Data acquisition fixes.
This software is beyond buggy. Worked initially and now is unresponsive. Do not use!!
Great app - Customers love it (Update 3-11-2017)
Word on the street is the new version due in August may have the ability to open multiple doors. If that is the case, I suspect we will be able to utilize this throughout our entire facility. Very much looking forward to the new release.
Just received word the updated app will not be out until August. I had told my clients about the pending May update, but now I have to back peddle on the date for the update.
Any client that has requested the Easy Code, I have been putting them off until the update is released. I guess they will have to wait just a little longer.
A few months ago, I was contacted by StorLogix telling me there would be a new version of the app. I am very much looking forward to it.
I installed this app about 8 months ago along with the recent upgrade to our StorLogix software.
Clients that take the time to install it on their smart phones really like it. It allows them to monitor their storage unit, giving them a real sense of security. It also gives the facility the image of being cutting edge, which is a real bonus to the facility owner and aides in marketing tremendously.
For us it eliminated the need to provide remote openers with each rental. No longer are the openers returned damaged or dirty. (We are a RV storage facilty with very large doors requiring motor driven doors ). Also, we no longer have to demand a deposit in the openers which is a plus.
Set up was lacking any written support. I suppose had my security company do the install, it may have been easier, but they knew very little about it, so I was forced to take it on myself. I am an IT person so I was able to muddle through it. But if you don't have deep knowledge of such things, do not attempt it yourself, at least not the initial set up. It is not user friendly.
For us, each unit has its own access code. So those who have multiple units (35% here do), the app is useless. It only can access / open one door.
Multiple doors with the current version is not possible. I want to stress that our set up in unusual so your situation may be different.
Our clients are older and generally fear technology so adaptation has been slow.
Walking people through the set up, especially those with technophobia is a real challenge. It is a trial of your patience.
Older IPhones such as the 4 and 4s choke on it. Best to limit installation to newer equipment.
Our security system runs independently from the XT, however the Easy Code relies on your local PC for its operation. If the PC fails, the Easy Code will not function.
If you have a security company do the initial install you will be miles ahead and avoid the frustration I experienced. My bad for not using a company that had prior experience with it. That is on me.
Once past the install, set up for clients is not all that bad. In fact it is pretty easy. But the learning curve is lengthy.
I would recommend this as the benefits outweighs the initial set up. So far it is running smoothly.
I just heard from the developers of this app. They mentioned they would be updating the app in May. That is certainly good news.
I mentioned the short comings of the app and they listened. Some of the issues they knew about. I stressed that they need to provide documentation on the app.
Things like using it on multiple phones, transferring the app to a new phone, addressing issues when a client gives incorrect set up information(such as wrong unit number etc.), updating or changing email address, forgotten passwords.
I will report back once we receive the update.
