Smooth system with great extended coverage as it seems all devices link! If something ever fails, just redo it like it was new without changing the name, and it will reconnect in an instant. I use all the features including several groups, timers, all of the settings offered on the light bulbs, and others. If power goes out temporarily, in a few minutes your devices will automatically be back on line w/o any input from you! I like the energy monitoring switches in various brands that work with this system and they all work very well! Of the colored light bulbs, I have found that the ones that are a dollar or two more than the cheapest will mimic the really expensive colored bulbs! Remember to get WiFi extenders or similar when you add lots of devices so that everything runs smoothly! When I add an extender, every device seems to be much quicker and no bobbles! Last note I will mention is that in 99% of any failures is your WiFi not this program! However, remember to reinstall any device that is not working per instructions that came with the device! BTW, I have around 35 bulbs and switches on this system and about 60 other devices and they all work fine because of an upgraded router designed to handle many devices as well as three extenders!
HIGHLY Recommend! I love this alarm clock!
I have never been a morning person. I have struggled my whole life with waking up on time and getting out of bed. This alarm clock has literally changed my life. I set my alarm to start turning the light on 25 minutes before the sound will go off to wake me up. I have woken up to just the light so many time before the sound even goes off, and it is such a better, more relaxing way to wake up in the morning! I have also noticed that I wake up feeling less groggy and have more energy throughout the day because I’m not oversleeping. I would HIGHLY recommend this alarm clock to anyone who struggles with waking up in the mornings, or anyone who just wants to wake up and feel more refreshed, less groggy during the day, and just overall relaxed in the mornings! The app is pretty easy to use, my only suggestion would be to add more wake up sound options. I usually listen to “River Sounds” or “Ocean Sounds”, but like a light “Rain Sound” would be cool or something :). My overall satisfaction though is still a 10/10!!
Works great, easy to use with great function
I have no less than 4 apps and a hub to run various WiFi devices. This works great, after you get the trick of turning the lights off and on several times, setup is a breeze and unplugging and power outages are not problematic as with other devices in loosing connectivity when power comes back on. The light controls are amazing and amazing with Alexa also. The trick is that the color on the app does not always match the light. If you think of it as a suggestion of color rather than the actual color. It is not the app, rather the color bulbs as I have three bulbs, all configured the same, will look different. It’s easy to match color and brightness to be the same. The schedule is easy to create and is very convenient. I will say I spent the least amount of using this product in setup, and I have had the best results.
Great potential but
This app has great potential but it has been my personal conclusion that this company’s mission appears to be more vested in adding more compatible devices to this app instead of focusing on adding features or resolving bug fixes for products that already support it. Coming from the ecosystem of WeMo I did not expect to see such a lack of features for a smart device app. I have had WeMo devices inside my house for over 5 years and over time the company did nothing but add features and improve upon itself. How can this company do the same as they do NOT support just a limited number of devices but instead support almost too many to count. Programming in this app is not straight forward. For example to set a device to turn on at sunset you have to create a “scene” in a completely different section of the app. Very confusing as this should simply be coupled with the timed schedule feature. In addition there is not the ability to program an offset time before or after sunset/sunrise. Also, the countdown timer cannot be coupled with a timed schedule. This is annoying as I only want my lights to run for 4 hours everyday 15 minutes after sunset and then I do not want them to be on past 11:00pm. This is impossible to program within this app but not WeMo.
First the app work as expected although pairing some of my plugs was difficult and time wasting. After a couple months the APP got stuck and would not open. After a few days I removed it. In the APP store I found an app that looking identical but it’s name was ‘Smart Life+. I installed it. It work just like this app and the only noticeable different was the main splash screen was a larger tree of devices, etc. Today, not this new version (so I thought) is not in the APP and maybe that explains why the APP would not open. So, now for the third time I have to pair all my plugs and recreate scenes or activities, whatever. Alexa seems to be working as usual. So. I don’t understand how the Smart Life+ app was working in the background. Now I’ve installed this Smart Life app and there must not be a data storage for these apps. I need to pair everything again, recreate scenes and get Alexa to detect my plugs. This is such a mess with duplicate in my Alexa APP for every time I’ve had to start all over again. Crawling on the floor, moving my bed to get to plugs behind it. So tired and even more confused. Developer, Help! What happened to this APP? Where did the + version go?
Replaced high end devices with devices that work with Smart Life. I fist purchased 2 light socket devices for just a on at dusk, off at sunrise, but since purchasing these, and seeing the continuous improvements and adding features, I have slowly replaced all of my devices. I’m not sure about the review on here that says Wem0 is better, it’s not, not at all. My only reluctance was that (obviously) I’m on apple, and my other devices worked with HomeKit. After installing my latest devices, I noticed scenes now works with Siri! Awesome new feature. It took me a few tries to realize I had to say “yes” after voice prompts to Siri. It would be nice to skip that step, but in no way a deal breaker. Keep up the improvements, but for now, you already score higher with me than 2 big name brands. Smart Life, for life for me.
Works great, lots of features, minor flaws
I am new to smart devices so I'm not sure what to expect from a smart device control app. But this one seems to do everything I need it to do. It walks you through basic set up of each device, which is especially important to a newbie like me. As others have noted, your Wi-Fi network name must match whatever your device's network is. It will scan for devices on your Wi-Fi network and can even tell you how strong your wifi signal is. Not sure if it needs Bluetooth on during device detection, but I activated mine just to be on the safe side. It recognized & controls all of my Maxico outlets & allows me to group them by room, task, etc. You can share control with others too. You can also program your device to perform tasks when certain events occur e.g. time, sunrise/sunset, humidity, etc. Only minor issues I noted were... 1) it didn't recognize any of my outlets from the main device scanning page. I had to move to the smart outlets page and rescan for it to find each outlet. 2) English language message errors e.g. "Successed" rather than "Succeeded". Note: the App Store has a similar app called JINVOO. It is essentially an older version of Smart Life. I recommend that you do not use JINVOO as it may not recognize the latest devices like Alexa. Stick with this one, it's newer/better.
Love These Lights
Setup of the 4 lights that were purchased was relatively easy once my WiFi was set to operate at 2.5 GHz. In order to get my dual band modem to operate at 2.5 GHz, I had to call my service provider for them to configure my modem to operate at this lower frequency as well. For a 60+ couch potato like myself, I’m so happy that I don’t have to get up to turn the lights on and off, that I can automate when to turn them on and off and that I can control whatever light color I chose from the comfort of my couch. For those who have an iPhone and have used others Apps, the App that controls these lights is pretty standard and loaded with features. I installed these lights today and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they continue to function as well as they’ve functioned today. Two thumbs up!!
Easy to use - easy set up
I have the exterior motion surveillance cameras. The set up and use was easy. Now that I have had them for about five months I would like to see two changes in the software: 1. I would like to be able to see all three cameras simultaneously one one main screen, and not just one at a time. 2. When a motion alert occurs a still photo is taken and a recording of the movement is made. In order to see the video of the movement you must scroll through all of the videos made during the day and find the time stamp that corresponds to the time on the still photo. It would be preferable that finding the recorded video would be easier. It would also be nice to set up viewing and use on a computer and not just phone and tablet. Those are the only reasons I gave it four stars and not five.
I am very, very pleased with this app and the supported devices I have. After using the OMOTON outdoor dual plugs (Smart Wi-Fi plug IP44) for floods, I purchased the wall switches (OMOTON Smart Wall light switch). Slight hiccup on the wiring but fixed that and works perfectly. I can be across country or in my bedroom and control all the lights I have associated with these devices with this app. Love it and it automatically updates the firmware in the devices. So far cannot say enough good things about this app, super easy to use, rename devices, find (discover), etc. I have not been paid or compensated in any way, just a real life consumer that likes when things just work. I set up outdoor lights to come on at dusk and off at dawn, and worked just like it is supposed to work. I have not as yet set it up with Alexa to control, but may get around to it this weekend. Highly recommend.
Most of the problems I have with my camera are caused by my internet connection. When the camera seems sluggish, so is my connection. Increased distance from the router is not a huge problem. The cloud recordings are good but not perfect. SD cards work a little better. The picture quality itself is awesome. Location of the camera determines effectiveness of tracking and motion detection. Closer to the body being recorded is better. Too much distance and activation is choppy. If you try to test it too much you’ll get frustrated. Work on camera location and let that location ride a day or two, then try a different location. You will see differences in motion activation with different locations. I’ve found that higher locations work best.
Stopped working and app support is in Chinese
The outlet devices worked great initially. So great that I ordered two more. Of course within days of the arrival of the new set the first set stopped working. Multiple attempts to reset failed. Trying to connect the new outlets failed. I followed the Troubleshooting directions, re-downloaded the app twice, reset my router and when all that failed I tried to contact support. There appears to be no help request within the app but I found a message about an upgrade causing issues. Unfortunately it appears there is more to the message but there is no way to expand it so I am left in the dark. So I tried to submit the help request through the Link on the App Store but found it launches a website in Chinese. Unfortunately I don’t read Chinese. I have to give this app 1 star. I will be happy to upgrade my rating if I can get some help AND they agree to make some app changes that will make it easier for users to read messages and to submit help requests in the future.
I love this app. I can’t wait for other “smart devices to adopt it. I can turn on and off devices remotely. It allows me to setup multiple schedules. If I want a countdown for a particular device, yep it’ll do it too. It’s a centralized location for many of my smart plugs and light switches. You want to see stats on power usage for your particular devices, that’s in there too. I’ve not played around with sharing of the devices with other family members as I’m the only one at the moment using the smart devices, but it’s there too. I’ve only mentioned a few of the features I personally use , but there are many more and more I’ve not discovered. To the developers: Please keep innovating and adding more devices. One of the best apps I’ve seen. Thank you!
Customer Sevice is so nice and helpful!
I was getting so frustrated with this air conditioner because it just wouldn’t connect to WiFi for some reason. After trying everything under the sun (twice) I finally gave up and googled the customer service number (since it couldn’t be found anywhere on the packaging or instruction manuals). I spoke with a guy named Bob that helped me figure everything out. My husband called me while I was on the phone with him and I forgot to click back over while my husband and I were talking. Bob held on for about 15 mins before hanging up. He called me back about 5 mins later and walked me through everything. Such a pleasant experience!
When it works, it’s good, but lacks some important features.
Individual devices almost always turn on and off if switched individually. Scenes regularly fail, with many of the devices not switching. It’s definitely not a connectivity issue, since those devices can be switched manually. Room for improvement: automation could use additional features. Lights on at sunset are useful, but the ability to add a random (+/-15 minutes) time shift to an automated action, and a fixed time shift (+/- any amount of time) to automation would be huge. Adding a random time shift to automation is a security feature, making it seem as if someone might actually be home to turn the lights on. The fixed time shift would allow for lights to come on a set amount of time before sunset, since by the time the sun sets, it’s already too dark inside.
