I made the switch the last couple of days. I figured might as well try since it’s going to happen. All and all I don’t mind the new app. It’s presence is better, it responds better, it lags less, and I got use to the UI. I even got to like the scenes vs automation pattern, it makes sense to me.
Few questions or issues though. I have read a few places that you can’t disarm/arm or unlock doors based on presence because of security concerns. That may be the case or a rumor, but if they decided that, why didn’t they support a keypad right away? The Centralite or Iris keypad would have been easy to support?
I did have a Nexia Doorbell Sensor and an Aeotec Doorbell chime device, I got those working adding the mcmc and vid device types from another thread, so those work.
I also liked SHDelay and my Iris Keypad, but that all doesn’t work. I setup the Iris keypad as a motion sensor and it at least gives me some motion and battery stuff, but not a keypad.
I wonder if they plan to support keypads in the future?
I like the delay feature they added, that makes sense and has been requested forever for the old app.
The other thing I find weird is not being able to set mode from a scene, why not, that would be easy and helpful.
Then being able to use a NOT feature in automation, so run this automation if Mode NOT Away or Armed, it only has If for includes, and a single one, not multiple, that would be helpful.
Then the whole unlock doors thing. If presence is too dangerous, then give me keypad support so I can put a keypad outside and give people codes.
Some other small things, in the old SH I could do custom things like alert when door has been open, or sound a chime if a door was open, that seems to be gone.
Then I was thinking about trying out Scout, but looks like that is gone, maybe a future ADT partnership for our self setup homes?
Lastly, I like ActionTiles, would be nice if they helped them support Scenes, Automations, and the new SHM, the rest of ActionTiles works, just those don’t.
All and all once I got used to it, if they tweak a few things, I’m ready. I’m trying to use the new app, it’s the future, it’s where they are going, it’s where we end up unless we leave, so trying to like it.
