New version crashes (updated)

Newest version keeps having popup that says upgrade is available (even though one isn't because I just upgraded to the newest version) then immediately crashes and will not open unless I delete and redownload then ignore the popup. Please come out with a patch to fix this bug. Otherwise the app is great when it worked before this update. 5 stars then but a patch is certainly needed.

Updated review: I see that with the new update you can now update the app without having to formally download it through the App Store. The issue seems to have been resolved as of now but hopefully I will not have the crashing issue in the future with the forced updates anymore. Overall the security system I love and the app is very intricate and streamlined in appearance. I have already recommended it to many friends.

Scout Alarm Fan

The Scout Alarm app is beautifully designed. A lot of thought went into the iOS app to make it integrate so well with the scout alarm system. Even though the scout alarm system was dreamed and built via crowd funding and a team of 6, they have certainly delivered. Any issue I have is promptly addressed and fixed by their support staff. New feature requests are considered and built if determined to be necessary to the customer base. I really like my scout alarm system and I am happy I have backed them for almost a year now waiting for the system. The iOS app works great with the system and I would recommend the system to anyone wanting an alarm system they can install themselves, feel secure, and not have to hire a professional to fish wires all over your house. Thanks Scout Alarm and keep up the good work!

Great concept but not ready for primetrime

Just not ready for primetime. The sound from the hub is very low hardly audible. Seems they missed out on the design. The sensors are just too big. Service and support is great but software has limitations and hardware has a long way to go. Cellular service never shows of working and so far tough to say if even get a signal. I would like to give it 5 stars but can't till they upgrade or redesign hardware so sound is audible. Also the app starts showing cellular signal. Please please make it more audible and please provide iPhone 6 plus compatible app. Also please provide option to turn on chirp if door open or close using a sensor. Also fix bug with cellular signal showing in app. Will update rating if fixed.
