What's New in Version 2.14.1
We’ve identified the critical issues below, thank you for your reports:
- Scenes triggered from the dashboard got a wrong fade time, and routines are triggered without a fade. If you experience this issue, please rename the scene and re-save the routine using the scene.
- When saving a widget, a banner with “Save failed” is shown for home off scenes.
- Slow responsiveness / freeze of the app when entering routines.
Original 2.14 release notes:
This is not just a routine update, it's an update about routines ;)
- Your lights as a reminder using a timer!
Timers can be found under “Routines” in the app. You can choose the timer duration, start and stop it at any time and choose what should happen when the timer ends. So get cooking, and get blinking!
- Automatic on? Automatic off!
If you’re using routines to turn lights on, you can also automatically have them turn off in the same routine.
- Randomize to make it seem like you’re home when you’re not.
In “other routines” you can now have your lights turn on and off with a randomness to it. This way you can mimic being home without it being exactly the same every single day.
So many things broken
Since updating the app, my wall mounted remotes now fail to work the majority of the time I press them. Also, after setting up a routine to turn my lights on in the morning, they randomly turn on at night.
It's so frustrating that a company as big as Philips, that has worked on this app for as long as they have, continue to have so many issues.
Can we please have a routine in which we can use sunrise and sunset as the time at which lights go on and off. I mean, this feature has been requested for well over a year now ... how difficult is it to implement such a simple routine? Sunset - lights go on. Sunrise -- lights go off. Most smart lights already have this feature built in (not by request but by logic).
Yet again I try to turn lights down as I am watching TV and unwinding and the app says it's time for an update before I can do anything. 30 minutes later it's still "updating" and I can't control any lights. I would rather just have basic light bulbs and traditional dimmer switches. This is the worst rated app I've seen and I understand why.
