So I am one of the unfortunate Iris users. We have mostly liked Iris for the most part. Had some minor issues but eventually got it all working as we wanted. We only have about 8 devices total, lights, thermostat, garage door, and smart switches and our main goal is to be able to control these devices remotely from our phones as we dont have or use motion sensors or any kind of geofencing.
My concern with switching to this instead of ST would be the ability to open garage door , or turn lights on and off, and adjust thermostat when we are not at home. With all the reading I have done about users experiences and the lack of an app, will I be able to do this in any kind of a simple manner?
