Doesn't connect to network. Have confirmed network is 2.4GHz and phone connects and works but app doesn't. No in-app feedback of why, just blinks past the scan qr page with no options other than to exit

It's great, when it works. Right now with the last update, I'm not even able to open the app. It keeps loading, and never gets out of this.

The camera quality is great especially for how much it costs. All the things work very well, recording, sound quality all that! I never have connectiom problems. HOWEVER it makes me extremely uncomfortable that the app has to have location access to run this is a camera in a toddlers bedroom why is that necessary?

What it just needs now is a screen to show the battery level of each device. As it is time consuming to check 15 plus different devices one by one

Indoor cam will not open until you give 5 to 10 attempts. Very annoying. Also no option for local network. It is always broadcasted. Waste of internet bandwidth.

After trying many times, hub mini finally connect to wifi. Curtain robot can only move light weight curtain.

amazon rejected my reviews on swicthbot. I bought the curtain motor, and mini hub and the switch button. I wrote reviews on the first two and then a review of their phone app. They rejected my review of the phone app because I basically called them lazy aholes but the other two reviews were published, but then later removed and I'm not allowed to publish reviews on their produts anymore. I didn't save my reviews and now amazon has removed them after publishing and I can't get them back. Again, amazon published the reviews but it looks like switchbot objected and had them removed. So that says a lot about this company. I bought this and then didn't return in 30 days so I'm stuck with it. So I've been trying to use it anyway and sometimes it works but half the time it doesn't. Voice commands don't work. The app doesn't work. Have to recalibrate all the time and then today I find the app was updated and the curtain stopped working. The motor has battery power so that's not the issue. Every day it's something different. When it works it works fine but one day to the next, you never know if it will work or not. ---------- You're the one that is confused or you're just a liar. I wrote two reviews. One for the curtain motor and one for the hub. Both were reviewed by amazon and published and then later removed and now I'm blocked from writing other reviews on any of your products. In the 20+ years I've been shopping on amazon I've never seen that. It only happens when a seller requests negative reviews be removed. Fine, I'll put my complaints on youtube and tiktok. For now, since I'm out over a $100 for this junk, I'll use it tilll I get so frustrated and take a hammer to these devices but I've take steps to side load your app and prevent it from updating because you obviously don't know s about software engineering.

Switchbot technology is [email protected] keeps failing the bots have stopped working despite resetting and new batteries the app shows all devices connected via Bluetooth when they are connected via the mini hub. Stay away from switchbot they do not work and and not anywhere near as reliable as real smart home devices

App doesn't have any of the online features. The cloud service functionality isn't even shown when I click on the switchbot in app. It's not that it's grayed out, it just isn't there. So I can't use the hub and can't connect to alexa.

If I go to Schedule to switch back on the alarm that I set before, and go back, and come back to Schedule, the alarm appears to be off. I have to delete that alarm and set the alarm at that time again. Please, fix this bug.

Can't connect my device, can't reset my password, on the app, website says I don't have an account. It's a complete mess.

This new logon screen should NOT be the first thing I see when I open the app. Failing that, the logon screen should actually work with Amazon or Google single sign on, if you're actually going to put buttons down for each of those services. Make my switchbot devices the first page I see, not this garbage UI you dreamed up.

Works great, had some Bluetooth issues, but it turns out it was my phone. New phone fixed the issue. App is well made, and support through the app is incredible. Had an issue with a product from a year ago, and they're replacing it with a brand new upgraded model for no cost.

When it works it was great, but it can be a struggle to get to that point. My main issue now is I've got a new phone and the app doesn't let me login using third party Google option. Manage to login that way on my old phone still but this one doesn't do anything when I click on it, this is on a Samsung S22.

12 HOUR option. The app is all good besides for the option for 12 hrs AM/PM pls add then this is a 5 star app. UPDATE. I've contacted them via email and they updated the app These guys are excellent.

The old problem fixed, but there is another problem, Google home keep saying "something went wrong" when I turn the swiftbot bot on and off, I check the switch bot app log appear unknown error (173) with Google assistant, could anyone tell me how to fix it? It works fine in switchbot app though.

Then switchbot hub is a great piece of kit, however when programming a new remote into the app, all buttons look the same. There's no way to add icons or colour the buttons to make them stand out. I think this is the one reason that this 'great piece of kit' barely is underused in my household.

The bot works find in app, but when I added the bot widget to home screen and press the widget, it shows "network request failed, please try again later". This issue happens on my Google pixel 4 and Samsung note 20 ultra, please advise, thank you.

Once great, last few months terrible. Constant errors when trying to set, even when standing beside device. Biggest issue, the switchbot nolonger starts device as it had done since it was purchased a couple of years ago. I replaced the battery, reset device, restarted it, reloaded all settings, deleted and reinstalled the app with no success. Also the temperature sensor data takes an age to load before viewing and the data is often out of date. Latest update appears to have fixed slow charts.

After only a few months my switchbot curtain broke and support asked me to take a video showing i have reset it and that it doesn't work. I have done that although seriously, a video of nothing happening? And just more emails saying they didn't get the video. I'm not happy. I want a replacement or refund

Bought a camera last week and apparently it had an account already connected to it. I emailed the company and asked if anything could be done about it, and gave it a week. Instead of a simple yes or no, I never got a reply. Poor service

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME App reads and reports my 2.4GHz router SSID just fine, but then reports "Cannot find any wi-fi access point with the name you set". Really? "Support" is useless in offering a solution. Time to pack this junk up and return it for refund. Too bad, because the LED lights looked to be a good product, otherwise.

I have a hub, a bot and 4 switchbots. Been using this for about 3 months and I have to say everything is rock solid and reliable Only reason not to give 5 stars was because the learning curve is steep and the documentation is sparse so a new customer could easily get frustrated. I hope the company does well, I am looking forward to having more bots in my home!

Rarely connects, new errors each week. Keep it simple, people. It's a switch connected to Bluetooth. Doesn't need to be so complicated.

Loses devices without warning - last update does not connect anymore. Now only "error please try again" appears when controlling my devices since the last "up"date, but cloud (alexa) still does work. Login via google is disabled, the device only works with the current configuration.. Would not buy again.

It's great when it works, but infuriating when you suddenly get constant error messages for no reason. I've been spending ages trying to calibrate, etc. If there were ANY product better than this that would do what I want it to, I'd be on that in a heartbeat, but alas, there isn't anything better for curtains. WHY CAN'T ANYONE MAKE ANYTHING THAT ACTUALLY WORKS PROPERLY?!!!

Cannot detect effectively and precisely, it even generates opposite data!!! For example, when the contact sensor has been closed, the app said it left"open".........

It's pretty annoying that you can only set five scheduled events, but now you can't even set times to 12 PM.

Out of the blue (well, after an automated app update) the device suddenly is encrypted (even though I didn't set a password) and now I'm locked out of using it. the app doesn't recognize my account and I can't even reset the device/password. it's just a useless piece of machinery at this point. Edit: the issue is gone after an update but it still shouldn't have happened. Adjusted rating accordingly.

i created an account on the website thinking this would link to the android app like most everyone else does...however the app doesnt recognize the website account. So you have to have 2 separate accounts which is idiotic.

Paired fine with the hub and alexa but after alexa uses it once it becomes unresponsive each time. I give up waste of time and money.

Works when it wants to, a nice add would be a button to send a reset to the cams, since they often freeze up and need reset.

I just got the Meter Plus and was initially enable to turn on "cloud services" to use it with automations. After a quick in app message to the devs I almost immediately got an email promoting me to check for an update to my Hub Mini, and voila it now works!!! Great product and app, thank you, I'm a fan!

The app needs work because it takes a long time to calibrate. Also you should sell a 90 degree adapter for the Switchbot U 2 curtain because the slots on my rails don't face down, they face towards the window and because of that I couldn't install them.

This is the worst app I have e ever had the great misfortune of tethering myself to. If I had another option for smart plugs where I live I would take it in a heartbeat. It is unresponsive, constantly signs me out, and is borderline unusable without having to fully restart my phone on regular basis in order to get it to respond. If you are thinking of using switchbot products, and somehow are reading app reviews before purchase, I strongly recommend you don't.

Would not connet to Swithbot meter on desk with BT enabled. App requests permission to access geolocation and camera. No reason for that level of access! An earlier version of the app seen on YouTube seems much better designed.

The app is buggy. I often hafto log out and back in or factory reset devices to get things working correctly. I've been plagued with "communication error" messages at totally random times when switchbot shouldn't be doing anything. A month ago my curtains worked perfectly every time but after the last update there has been nothing but problems. I want to give 1 star but my reviews keep getting removed...

Very poor. Crashes constantly, the whole switchbot curtains system is rubbish. Have to reset them every month. App hangs and fails to respond. Maybe in a few years they will get this right but I don't have the patience to waste hours keep contacting there service team who just keep telling me to delete them then read them. Don't waste your money on switchbot products.

Curtain bots are great when they work. Did the firmware update and now nothing works. I've recalibrated my curtains 5x and none of the data saves. Deleted them and started all over again. Get to the calibration and again nothing saves, making them useless

The latest bug-fixes and improvements have solved a lot of problems I've had! I've used the switchbot app on both iOS and Android and had also felt the Android version was lacking features and usability that I was experiencing on iOS. It's nice to see the devs continuing to improve the software because the switchbot is genuinely a really cool and useful device
Emanuel Lopes

Horrible. One of the buggiest apps I've used. When I log into my account the app shows the loading animation indefinitely. I need to exit the app and open it up again and I'm somehow logged in. I went through some hiccups adding a Switchbot on my main phone but it worked. Tried to add it to a second android phone but it's impossible. Again, the app show a "communicating with device" message indefinitely. Also, the account is useless. All the configurations are saved locally.

I've had an earlier generation of the curtain bots - worked simply and flawlessly for a while year. Bought four more units (not cheap!!) and the app gets them calibrated and then does nothing. This is annoying and I can't figure out the problem except that it's the app
Courtney Pure
Jan 23, 2022
Same issue as everyone else... The curtains didn't open one day so I thought the battery was dead so I charged them. Put them back on and still nothing. Look at the app and I was signed out and when I signed back in all the devices were gone. I tried to recalibrate both curtains and they connected individually during set up but when I got to the last step to open and close it doesn't respond.

Works okay, but really needs two features 1) the ability to use custom IR commands with Google Home, and 2) the ability to lay out a custom remote in the GUI - a row of round buttons you can't rearrange is horrid.

Ok so some of the reviews here we're negative, but I got an IR hub mini and it works so well and the app hasn't had any issues for me. I'm honestly shocked the product works so well for the price.

OK app, but I keep getting logged out and receiving "Network not available" messages (that isn't normal notifications so it took me quite a while to figure out where these messages came from) multiple times a day the last few months.
Matt Lindsay
Jan 6, 2022
Could you please add scene verification to keep repeating the command if the switchbot has a "something went wrong" moment. I'm using Google assistant to run scenes but I have about a 75% success rate of the scene working. When it doesn't work I have no idea if it activated or not. Also is it possible to add trim to the switchbot, where the finger can be calibrated between 50 to 100% of the movement. This would help for raised buttons and tweeking the mounted, to not lift it's adhesive mount.

Per response from support and confirming online, AWS was down Tuesday triggering widespread outages for many services. Revising review until further tinkering. Original with 1 star - (Sucks! Just trying to run a SwitchBot plug and it's constantly offline. Reinstalled the app and repaired the device. Still nothing. Can't even delete the old devices, which is the same device, which is no longer visible to the app. The one time it did work, when I was trying to configure it to work with ifttt the app blocked me saying I had triggered the device 'too many times.' Major disappointment. I do hope this discourages others from wasting their money on a SwitchBot plug.)

Really bad I used the App together with my hub and two switchbots. The App is unreliable and most of the times logout resulting in not showing any of your devices and not working with Alexa or similar systems. Today it happened again and although I didn't login in the past 7 days I get a message for to many login attempts. But hey I can always see their shop in which I can buy even more of their products that's the only thing reliable in the App.

Since the last update hubs will not connect to the internet, can not even log into app on second device. Had 20 devices running fine, including four hubs for sometime, just suddenly lost internet. I think they are still connected as they all show up in my BT app but switchbot app not recognising this. Even when I set up wifi again they find the internet but this doesn't show in the app. So disappointed... come on all since last update and I've left it a while now... voice command ob gone too.

My devices suddenly disappeared. First there's annoying popup about needing my location. Once I've added the devices, I shouldn't need to have my location on. Well, really I should never be required to use it, but that's another problem. But second of all one device disappeared and when I restarted the app, the other one had no reading so all of my devices are gone. But they are still detected by Alexa skill, so it's obviously just this horrible app that's the problem.

Nothing connects in the app, bought a hub mini, motion sensor and door sensor and the app won't add any of them, just get spinning circle when trying to connect, or a bland error in app saying failed to connect please try again.

I want to delete my previous review but I don't know how to... The pairing issue was my fault because I confused the two bots. I was pairing a bot that was already paired hence the error. The callibration sometimes is off and I callibrate them everyday still.. hopefully it'll be better soon

The app has many annoying bugs: in winter/summer time transition, the hub updates not only internal time, but modified scenes times (I reported the bug, after 3 years developers still did not fix the bug). Second, weekly I have to restart the hub because it stops sending commands to devices. Thirdly, if the HubPlus has not enough bluetooth coverage, then it does not switch to the phone bluetooth (phone has enough coverage), but it tries to send from the HubPlus vainly.

Easy to use. We've had it set up for a year, same battery even. No problems from the device or app. We use it to turn our ice maker on twice daily. Only change I'd like to see is a manual use button, for testing placement or usage when I don't want to get up.

Chris Sappington

Return your devices immediately before you open them! Support will fight you on the return if you even opened the box! The app is terrible, and the Switchbot Curtain is too weak to open a single curtain. Currently fighting them for a refund on the open boxes. May have to get the credit card company involved.

Absolutely useless app. Purchased switchbot device that "requires" an app to even function. App does not work. Bluetooth doesn't pick up anything. Followed the setup instructions. No "icon" on screen, even on refresh. REQUIRES you to register an account with them for something that really doesn't need a user account to function. Without an app that works, it's just a cheap piece of plastic that I purchased for nearly £30. This whole business model has "user data harvesting" written all over it.

Again, the bluetooth nagging is ridiculous and makes me dread opening the app. Despite the vendors claim, you CANNOT turn off this apps craving for bluetooth access. It CONSTANTLY asks to turn on bluetooth, which serves absolutely no purpose. As advised by the vendor, I've disabled the bluetooth nag notifications...which worked until the next update, after which the notifications were reenabled. After turning it off again, I got a notification telling me SwitchBot was asking permission to enable bluetooth! Stop with the bluetooth buggery...I don't need it and it depletes my battery twice as fast! Just stop!! EDIT: I'VE ALREADY TURNED IT OFF!!! It keeps turning itself on again and doing so creates another nag screen from Android, with the app begging to grant permission to turn bluetooth on, EVERY TIME I OPEN THE APP!! What is your fetish with forcing bluetooth on people?!

My switchbot worked for less than a week. My honest suggestion is to just not open the package, return it before you open it. Apparently, mine had a hardware issue, which is sad, because the thing is so simple and ought to be functional. The constant updates to the app (making earlier versions unstable and potentially making your bot incompatible), the need to have Bluetooth and Location services running simultaneously, the need to sign up for an account - unacceptable, one of the worst...

I bought the thermometer and the minihub for our small office. It would be great if there will be options to sort the scenes as well as copy existing scene. It would be helpful to create scenes that only have a few conditions extra/different

Very good so far I've got two of these in my cigar cases , they update pretty quickly so I can keep a close eye on the temperature and humidity but I do have one suggestion for the app. I think it would be handy to have the data as a widget to add to my home screen? Similar to how I can view the weather and news on my android smart device. Maybe you can look to do this in a future update? A response would be greatly appreciated.

Some of the menus can be a bit confusing to navigate, but so far everything has worked better than expected and it looks modern. Great with Google Home. The low review score is honestly shocking, this is great.

SwitchBot Hub will occasionally disconnect from WiFi but App shows as "connected". Google Assistant will not work until WiFi for Switchbot Hub is removed and reconnected.

It's so buggy and it's hard to sign in,Its very laggy and it'll just completely crash. Like when i click atleast one button it'll immediately crash. And it makes my device's screen freeze and it makes it restart. Please fix this asap.

Scenes doesn't work, have set a bot on my airconditioning. If temp lower than 19 degrees turn off . Temp goes lower but doesn't go off. Same for temp higher should turn on the air-conditioning, but it doesn't. ( Edit ) 1 I have reached out to switchbot through their email. And they contacted me back. They have released update 3.1 for the hub mini. I need to test it out before raising the stars to 5. I hope the scenes will work now. I'll be back

Server response times to the hub are horrible and sometimes time out in north America. Asking Alexa to do stuff to switch-bot is also the same. Please beef up your infrastructure and configure it to scale on demand. Netflix has open source projects on GitHub you could leech off of since the development is currently so poor.

Everything seems to work for me, though the connection drops sometimes. Really missing a press and hold option on the IR blaster too, I have many remotes that do different things if you long or short press, hub cannot replicate this.

It's actually a great app, I connected to alexa easily. I havent had any issues. I'll update my rating after an important request. I use the app to open and close my curtains. Curtains are for shutting out light. So, one might want curtains to open/close based on day/night cycles. There is currently no ability to open/close curtains at times related to sunrise/sunset. Sunrise/sunset times change every day, so setting it to clock times on a calendar isn't a complete solution.

Reply to Switchbot: Not a mail issue. App login and creation goes to a never ending looping video on Android version. REVIEW: New owner. Android app doesn't work at all. Fortunately I have an iPhone too, and it was easy. Sad that this android app can't create accounts or login. Fire your android app maker and get your iOS app maker to build one for Android.

Hardware is let down by a very poor app and support. I use a bot in custom mode and once the bot is told to be on there is no way to stop the action apart from taking the battery out. Then it's responsive again. The bots often disappear from the app. Force close and then reopen is the only option. I've reported these bugs via the app feedback and zero response. Until these bugs are resolved the bots are useless for my requirement.

I bought this to monitor my sons room temperature. Specifically in the summer when the temp can change throughout the night. I wanted to use the notification alarm. I've set the parameters, all notifications are allowed both in app and phone settings and it has never worked. I've paid 16 quid for something that just gives me the ability to read the temperature whilst in another room of my house. Not what I paid for. Very dissapointed.

Controlling the switchbot directly from phone works fine, but that's it. The tutorial tells you to enable cloud service in switch bot settings to use it with Alexa. However, there is no cloud service settings in the device settings! If I delete the hub mini the cloud service tab shows up, but I can't enable it because "no hub found". If I add the hub back that tab magically disappears again. Great. Update: the cloud service tab finally showed up after stopping and relaunching the app many times

Edit: I was unable to pair my CurtainBot as there was a loading icon next to the "Next" button in the app which did not disappear, and I was unable to pair the device. I have since received support via email. They recommend restarting the CurtainBot by holding the button on it for 45s. This fixed my problem; it now showed up in the app as a bluetooth device and I could pair it. The bot barely has enough power to open/close the curtains though.

It's awful, trying to calibrate it makes you want to throw it away . When ever it goes to the right it doesn't stop even though the curtain is open or closed depend on which way you choose the curtain to open . Then going left it stops after moving about 12 Inches. Even though you calibrated it it's not worth £85

VERY inconsistent smart curtains. Half the time only one of two paired curtains will open (especially w/ scenes), silent mode is useless - doesn't move curtains at all, over time curtains don't open or close fully (will change what is considered fully opened & closed requiring frequent calibration which is very annoying), the curtains are very loud, super expensive even with Black Friday sale - probably twice the price they should be, voice commands often fail or just one opens. Do not recommend

Once you login to account, you will not be able to set scheduler for switchbot. Which is bizzare and took me a while to figure out after decided to logout test. When you change phone and when switchbot run out of battery, it may stop working completely. Need to change battery then setup scheduler again with switchbot app "without" log in. Just click on the detected bot in the home page. Log into account is meant for remote operations i believe which requires a bluetooth to wifi hub to setup.

Great app but taking off 2 stars because: 1- they forgot to add widgets for curtain bots (preferably 1x1). You do have widgets for scenes but I can't create scene without a hub, which shouldn't be necessary for widget activation. Seems like an oversight. 2- keeps randomly logging me out. I'll gladly update my review if these were fixed but it's been quite a while since I reported #2

For the curtains: it works well with the remote and hub via app but integration with Alexa isn't the best. It worked for a day and then stopped. I guess i would need to reinstall everything and would work again but it's not a simple and quick proces. It lacks the sunrise-sunset option. The built-in light sensor in my setup detects the same light from street lamps as from sun. Touch&go works flawlessly for both opening and closing. Works well with IKEA rods (both thin and thick) and curtains.

I am using the app for my switchbot hygrometer on an android system. The app seems to be very slow to react to my screen taps and presses. Changing between monthly, weekly or daily seems to confuse the app. Pressing a point on the graph also seems to be very tempremental sometimes it shows you the data from the point that you pressed and other times not. A better way to browse the graph daya would be a nuce improvement.

We use the switchbot curtain. And while it is a super cool thing which really works well, the app is the big downside. It looks great and has a lot of functionalities. But as well a lot of bugs. You cannot count how many problems appear with the app. Sometimes it doesn't find devices, often it is super slow and has connectivity issues, sometimes Alexa can find some but not all devices, sometimes you cannot configure the devices anymore and often the problems are quite persisting.

I would like to give this a better review because i love all of the functions this serves but it only works right some of the time. I have constant connectivity issues and scenes choose to work when they want mainly because of constant updates. Also if your internet goes down or the Amazon servers go down you are left with devices that even though they are on the same wifi network CANNOT communicate with one another. Customer service is ok if you like waiting for a response at 2am.

Awful, it keeps going in the opposite direction and when you move it to the other side so it's the correct direction, it still goes in the wrong direction.

The new UI for the app is terrible! I loved the device so much that I purchased a second one for my son's room shortly before the update and regret it so much. I wish they'd roll back the app update.

Movement of the curtain cannot be stopped during calibration verification, which is a problem if the device get stuck, which it did many times for me while tweaking the install. There should also be a way it fix small alignment issues without full recalibration. Comms with hub fails often, which manifests through cryptic messages throughout the app that imply something entirely different is wrong. App should force keep screen on during calibration to prevent it from failing.

Terrible account management. You have to create seperate accounts on the website and app for no reason... Support staff lack the ability to read and understand simple messages.

There are some blatant functionality/instructional holes here. They ability to switch between long press and short press is essential in some cases. However you MUST be within bluetooth range to change the mode. You cant do it via cloud app. That's silly. I'd say check the fine print but for things like this there isn't any. Also know that the app email and password doesn't work for logging into the website support center. Also no desktop app. :(

The hub does not offer delays between steps in a scene. This makes IR control of things like TVs much less useful since most TVs take time to turn on and receive IR signals. Seems like something simple to add. I asked about several months ago, still not added. Competitor TuyaSmart has delays.

The temperature module works really well, and has all essential features. The main SwitchBot usually works fine, but can be unintuitive or slow to use sometimes. I really wish it allowed for better control of the RGB lighting of the SwitchBot Hub. Not all devices you'd expect to be supported work, although this may not be SwitchBot's fault. Overall, it's a good app and a good product, not perfect, but usually gets the job done.

Two MAIN issues: 1) The "press" mode worked properly only the first time. As soon as I tried the "switch" mode (which also worked fine) and went back to "press" mode, it automatically pulls back even if the timer is set to 0 seconds. The timer gives us the option to press for 60 secs max, which also works fine, but I need it to stay pressed until I press the off/on button myself, an option I no longer have. 2) There should be bigger disclaimer saying that you need a HUB to make it work w/ Alexa

The device is probably good, but like others you sign up, it requires a confirmation code that doesn't! There is no way to contact them. So basically you paid for something you cannot use. It turns out they throw a bunch of text in the confirmation email that steers it right into the spam folder. Once you get that figured out you sign up and can find your product. The interface was pretty primative.

Works. Some issues. 1. Signing up for an account shouldn't be necessary when using the temp meter stand alone (comp love data mining, but no one is unhackable). 2. My unit is creating duplicate time stamp data readings **Just within the first 10 mins, seems to be normal now**. 3. Even though the temp meter unit is set to °F, the data in the CSV file is in °C (not a huge issue, F = (C*9/5)+32, just annoying). 4. Not able to save CSV file locally on device (easily), app makes you email/cloud it.

I find that the arm is too weak to press or pull most of my switches. Moreover, the padding on the pulling sticker prevents the arm from applied enough pressure on the light switch. Lastly, only 5 timer slots is far too little, and, they should come in even numbers. Otherwise you cannot close the on-off circuit.

I also tried getting the Mini Hub to learn from my TV remote, but it keeps saying it learnt the code but dose nothing when I try testing it in app. I can't really say anything good, about the mini hub or this app, I probably will send the hub back. Shame I had high hopes but it's simply just doesn't work.

Good app so far, but it is really frustrating that the graphs for the temperature and humidity meter don't have graduations and scale labels on the Y axis. (Unless i can configure this somehow?)

Not a bad device as far as I can see. I'm very disappointed that I cant download any of the data. I have tried contacting the feedback team, they got back to me pretty quick but the answers I'm getting are not solving the problem. To me it just looks like a rubbish app in many ways. I'm disappointed

Unable to setup a scene. It only allows you to select a condition, but not an action. The app doesn't look anything like the screen shots.

Why do you need all of those permissions to turn a switch on and off. Rediculas! Edit: I understand the blutooth but why do you need to know my location? Record audio? View network connections? Read and modify sd card? Have full network access? View my wi-fi connections? Change my audio settings? Run at startup? None of these have anything to do with operating a switch that turns on and off.

Very useful product at a good price point. One feature I would like is to be able to customize automatic hold time beyond 60 seconds. My application has longer, custom hold time requirements.

Can't get this to work with my Frigidaire AC unit that has a IR remote with many settings. Frigidaire isn't even listed under their Air Conditioners! They've only been around forever so that's a huge let down. All i can do is turn it on and off by doing the manual didn't find my device, of which i tried for over an hour different angles with the remote, distance ect. Seriously this is the ONLY reason i got the thing!! Also my app looks NOTHING like this. Alexa wont accept my acct info to work. 😡

I have been using switches, hub, hub plus through kick starter and a full product set. No issues at all with amazon echo as well. Makes my life simple. Love it. Looking forward a app on gear s3 watch.

App is adequate for controlling my air conditioner and TV. However, I wish there are more features such as creating customised chained commands (e.g. Lowering my TV brightness through a set of button presses; basically schedule but ready to be executed at any moment), another possible feature is that an android widget can be created that directly brings the user to the controls for an appliance.

Simple UI & super easy to set up. A dark theme would be nice. DEFINITELY NEEDS A WIDGET for easy one button push operation. A serious app flaw imo.

This app, and the device, simply don't work. The adhesive isn't strong enough and the switch actuator pushes too hard so it always immediately falls off the switch plate.

After the most recent update unable to pick up the switchbot via bluetooth, have tried everything. Unsure why an update made things worse but now this switchbot is a useless paper weight. WILL NEVER BUY AGAIN!
