Now faster and more convenient

The latest update to the Android app makes the operation of your home control system faster and more convenient. Now, users don’t even need to launch the Home Control app to access many features.

Swiping from top to bottom, users can access device, scene, rule, group and time control settings directly from the home screen dashboard. In the Home Control widget, Android users can turn these icons on or off by simply touching the corresponding icons or functions of the smart device (scene, rules, time control settings), or quickly adjust the radiator to the desired temperature, for example. .

Users can decide which devices, scenes, rules, groups, or time control settings are displayed on the widget to quickly access multiple functions, such as adjusting the thermostat, activating an alarm, turning off all light bulbs for sleep or checking if any windows are closed.

The operation of the widget does not require much battery power. If it is not used for a long time, it will switch to sleep mode and use less energy.

Last but not least, widgets can be permanently displayed on the screen. This is very useful, especially when combined with an Android tablet. If the tablet is installed in a central location in an apartment or house, all users can quickly and easily access Home Control.

Improved feedback feature

With the new update, users can easily, quickly and conveniently turn on or off desired elements, including adapters, scenes, rules, groups and time control settings, by clicking on the icons. The Android app also now provides better feedback when playing home control scenes. Users will also receive visual feedback in the app during scene playback.
