Ratings and Reviews

Ok App -- but needs work


The app functions pretty well and seems quicker and more responsive than the Insteon for Hub app. However, (IMHO) the graphic interface is pretty lame, unnecessarily colorless and boring and does not make a good use of screen real estate. The real bummer for me is no support for my cameras -- which Insteon for Hub does quite well.

Easy and intuitive design!


Love this app! I can control everything very easily. I can even check if I accidentally left the light on after leaving the house. If you are looking for something simple and easy to use this app is for you!

Better than Insteon app


I really like this app and prefer to use it over the main Insteon app. It's more responsive and intuitive.

Developer Response

In the Settings tab of the Homeboy app, there is a preference named "Keep me signed in". By default it is disabled for security reasons. However, if you enable this preference, Homeboy will automatically sign you in when you open the app (pending you've successfully signed in previously). Rest assured that Homeboy doesn't store your password — your session is maintained through a token generated when you last signed in. We've written a full FAQ article on our help site as well ( Thanks for your review and using Homeboy!
