Thanks for making App on Windows

Some fixes needed Windows 10 mobile app crashes sometime. Creating scene and adding member doesn't work all the time. Doesn't update Thermostat all the time. No option in thermostat section to go on Auto weekday Program. Windows App don't show cooling... if AC is currently ON. Need log of when AC turned ON/OFF to monitor if AC running longer than expected. Needs push notification when plugin module turned-on manually.

Continued good experience - UPDATE NOT WORKING

WP8.1 phone app is better than iPhone for sure... overall, easy system to add on- not working with W10M

Preliminary but has bugs to be worked out

Not as clean an functional as IOS version. Has more issues and not as developed as Android version. Camera do not connect.

Functional

It isn't anywhere near as full featured as other platform's version of the app, and far too often I get the coming soon notification (HD cameras never connect, Nest control isn't available, etc), but it covers the basic functions well enough that I will continue to use the app.

Another disappointed INSTEON customer

I should have known better when the MSFT store rep had to get his Android phone to demo the product in the store, but I went ahead and bought the INSTEON suite of product because they "supported" the Windows family of devices.... Certainly seems like a mistake at this point. App does not open on Win10 mobile. Large disparity between app experience on other platforms. Also, the app on Win10 desktop does work, but missing many features. Had to borrow neighbors iPhone to complete setup. **Update 7/3/2016** Still no working Windows 10 mobile app. Insteon is missing the point here: their devices are meant to add convenience to life, not inconvenience.

Need a Universal Windows 10 App

Insteon has a great product and has a lot of potential to make it even better. I feel like they have placed their focus on other things that have distracted them from their app development. Not just Windows but others platforms as well. I would really like to see a Windows 10 UWP app released sooner rather than later.

Wish I had chosen a different path

When I replaced X-10, I thought Smarthome was on their way to being great. That never materialized. This app (and the android version) show this clearly. The old X-10 software was much more sophisticated more than 15 years ago!!! For example, scheduling lights to come on 10 minutes after sunset is impossible, and only one scene/device can even trigger off sunset. Hundreds of other major and minor problems, wish I wasn't a thousand dollars of hard-wired product into this stuff. Frustrating money pit that never lived up to the claims or functions of their website.

It's an O.K. app.

It's an okay app. It's not as intuitive as it could be. But, it gets the job done. To be honest, I use the iOS app to configure my automation, and use this app to view everything...

Working now

It's working now with W10 devices, but missing features. For example, I can hear audio from a camera but I can't leverage the built-in mic to talk. There are apps in the store now that allow me to use the mic feature that these cameras support.

Not working on windows phone 10

I really liked this app in windows phone 8.1 (my original review follows) but ever since I moved to a Lumia 950 running Windows Phone 10 the app crashes on the splash screen. It'll be great when that is fixed and the app works again. My original review: I like how easy is to setup devices, rooms, scenes, etc. It would be great if they could add more features, like the ones the desktop application has or like its Android counterpart
