What's New in Version 1.14.1
This update fixes an issue that prevents new users from adding their Insteon Hub (2245-222) to their account.
so many serious flaws
I keep getting signed out and have to constantly re enter my password when trying to access over my cellular connection. This technology in theory is great but it is really tedious to use, and set up. Creating a scene is not intuitive with the included videos. It took me awhile just to figure out how to trigger my lamps from my motion sensor. They have a pointless little 6 second movie clip but it does nothing to help. when I finally did figure out how to configure the motion scene it had to have me hold the button on the back of the motion sensor every time I wanted to make a change to the scene which was tedious. Imagine if you had multiple motion sensors or door sensors mounted on the ceiling and had to constantly get up there and press buttons every time you wanted to change a scene??!! Needs to be a better way to use this system. With how much all the proprietary hardware costs, you'd think it would all work elegantly. Not so much... i'm thinking of switching to Z wave since it's an open platform.
Useless and broken!
Worked great for the first 6 months. The app itself is nothing amazing but it did work. Latest updates have broken the app. Does not connect at all when on LTE from the iPhone but works fine on LTE on the iPad. Connect in the same room at the same time, one works and the other does not. Support is useless with non-answers like "something is blocking it". WTH, worked until your latest update and since the IPad connects sorta blows the "blocking" out the window. Calls to support have a 30+ minute wait until I just give up. Emails take days to answer if at all.
Insteon your latest updates broke things. Look at all the recent reviews and all the issues. Own up, pull this releases and put the old one up until you can sort it out. Things go sideways sometimes we all know that. It's how you handle it that counts and right now it is a zero star effort.
This app works absolutely great! No issues at all easy to set up but has one BIG BIG problem... it cannot turn off LED bulbs!!! They dim to almost off but they can't ever turn off completely I confirmed this with a call to their support team. It seems that the modules need to have power all the time in order to connect to your Wi-Fi and the LEDs pick up on that and will power themselves on and cannot be turned completely off as long as that power source is there. Big big disappointment! It says nothing on the box about this issue although Support says it's a known issue.
One other major problem is that unless you've been living in a hole under ground somewhere with no media contact at all, incandescent bulbs have been outlawed and you will soon no longer be able to buy them or if you can they will be very very expensive!!!
