I’m a big fan of the idea that you can use your phone to control all sorts of things around your house, but I think this is one area where it’s just not practical.

The app is too slow and unreliable for me to recommend it.

The Good: It works with a lot of different devices, including some less common ones like my Roku box. You can also set up “scenes” so that when you do something in the app (like turn on lights), other things happen automatically (like turning down the thermostat). This means you don’t have to go through multiple steps every time you want to do something; if everything’s already set up correctly, then pressing one button will make everything work as expected
