Lacking one CRITICAL feature
I've been using this app for at least 4 months (maybe even longer but I can't keep up with time) and it seems fine. I set it up so that the camera records every time the front door is opened. The only complaint I have is that it never notifies me when a recording takes place even though I set it up in the Alert options. I don't know if I'm missing a step to activate this option or not. The main point is so I know if/when someone enters the house. If it doesn't alert me, how will I know? I notice it stops recording every now and then too even though I have sufficient memory remaining. Also, we get power surges often and it takes over a day for the camera to reconnect to the network. It shouldn't take that long in my opinion. Power surges last a second or so. Once the power returns, it shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes for the camera to reconnect. I don't understand why mine takes over a day to reconnect. If they fix these key features, this app will be perfect! 😊
No problems here
We have been with Nexia for a little over five years now. I have seen the app go from so so to better.
We have our Schlage door locks, Alexia, bridge, and my recessed lighting hooked up to it. For us (husband and sixteen year old) we love it! We all know when someone enters and leaves. It's even great for my parents who stop in from time to time. They just put in their codes and they're in!
We have even used the app to unlock the door for our contractor who needed to stop in while we were at work. No missed work for us. Just had him text me he was at the front door, checked my Nest/Dropcam camera to see and clicked on the app button to unlock the front door for him. You do need the person to turn the knob back to lock the door when they leave (this part I wish was better but this is a Schlage issue NOT Nexia).
I have even setup the living room lights to come on and off when our codes are put in. This is a great feature for coming home at night. None of us use the computer we just use the app.
I will say you have to play around with it. It is a leaning curve. We also use Nest/Dropcam cameras (we didn't like the images from the Nexia cameras five years ago so we got rid of it and got a Nest/Dropcam).
Needs work for Thermostat Basics
My new HVAC system needed one of these, my old smart wifi one didn't do dual fuel - this one does. It's difficult to get it set up, more steps then needed. You have to use a computer / website first, then register the app. Then register the devices. You can't do Basic things like say... set your seven day heat/AC programs like the Honeywell and other apps so your forced to use the wall thermostat with its crappy touch screen that doesn't register very well and is slow. I can't speak for the automation yet for adding other zwave devices, etc but there are plenty of other one time purchase devices for home automation like the Vera which doesn't gouge you after the fact for a monthly fee. This one does, but you don't know it when you first get the device. All in all over priced, poor setup, phone app doesn't do basic thermostat functions... get a Nest instead for better control and smarter learning. Plus... it just looks cooler. My 2 cents.
