Sometimes this app will not set the alarm when asked. Usually it will just set it in a few hours, but not always. It may or may not notify me when it does. Last night I tried to set the alarm in Partition 2 at 10 pm using the app. It actually set itself at 9:41 this morning - after we were up and around and after we had turned off the alarms. Partition 2 is in the detached garage but the alarm only goes off in the house so we did not hear it and repeatly tripped the sensors. I will never use this app again.

UPDATE: I want to apologize for taking so long to provide this update. I changed the rating from 1 star to 3. As it turns out, most of the problems we were having related to decreased cell phone reception. Our alarm company was able to move our antenna to fix it. HOWEVER, we still believe that on the day the alarm armed itself AFTER we had disarmed it was a problem with the app. We gave the arming command at around 10 pm, although it never actually armed itself. We disarmed it at around
7 am the next day - then the alarm armed itself at 9:45 am that day, based on the command from the previous night but nearly 2 hours after the disarm command.

The Alarm Guys

I had a Vivint alarm system that drove me nuts for 5 months. Had to call them 14 times for service and out of 14 they only came out 6 of them. The other 8 had a 4 hour window that I sat at home, lost money because I wasn’t at work, And They Never Showed Up!!!! And They Never Called. They were Terrible. I found The Alarm Guys and had them come out. What a difference a hard working service company makes. They were here in the morning and finished the job in one day. The techs had a issue with my door bell cam and next thing I knew the owner and his brother were at my house and resolved the issue. Where else do you get that kind of loyalty and commitment. I can answer that, No where!!, never!!. They run their company hands on. So I very highly recommend The Alarm Guys to anyone wanting a very good alarm and camera system.
They are the best.

No Homekit support

The lack of homekit support is really starting to get troublesome. This is the only integrated device to not support homekit, and is therefore the only thing in my house not included in my homekit automations. Honestly if they just added this one thing the app would go from one to five stars for me, since its usefulness would increase exponentially.

Really hope to see this added soon...

Edit: Gotta say, thank you very much to the developers for answering my review so quickly. That’s literally never happened before and it really shows how seriously they take input from their customers! I really do hope that homekit gets added soon, but I had to bump up my review a few stars in light of this response. Knowing that they’re listening to their customers gives me much, much more confident in the platform and it’s future. Keep up the good work and hope to see this added in the future!

Also, thank you for being willing to add a couple stars back. It is appreciated and we will keep working toward earning the last two stars here. We look forward to hearing from you again.
