I'm pretty happy with the iPad App.
Like everything I have an opinion on some things that could be improved.
Personally I also think improvements could be chargeable in say a Pro version.

I will break down a few thoughts:

At the moment we have 4 broad functions:

Setting & Displaying Alarm Mode
Reporting Status & Trouble
Seeing Input status
Controlling via Home Control

The front information screen is functional but not particularly attractive. It might be good if it was optional in some way.

Overall colour scheme is well thought out if not to (possibly) everyone's taste. Following the Comfort colours (brochure) may have been another approach. Could this ever be configurable?

It would be good if it could become a low cost substitute for a custom touchscreen (typical wall mounted). Audio would be difficult or impractical to integrate but is there something more straightforward than it first appears e.g. the KT03 is a UCM & screen combined.

Dimming / slider objects would be mandatory to meet this requirement but pretty useful anyway. If you have a lot of dimmers then a great function is setting things up from the 'comfort' of the Sofa.

I suppose that also then gets into users setting up scenes. Experimentation; recording levels and then some savvy users setting up scenes is limited in scope.

It is also very useful for walk testing and I discovered a site where a lot of the PIRs were not set sensitive enough. This can be done with the audio and/or Comfigurator of course but very convenient with the iPad. Easy for a client to do.

Showing Outputs might be a good addition?
Possibly even Counters?

Anyway interested in other people's thoughts.

Thanks, those are useful suggestions

Anyone else have any feedback about any of the apps?

Hi

I too would like to see a replacement of the keypad with an off the shelf mini pad. Also will like to see a menu driven touch pad with none of them short cuts of F1 ... etc.

Current IPhone app times out too soon.

Great product nonetheless

Thanks for the suggestions

For iphone app timing out, that can be changed in Comfort Server Manager. The timeout setting default is 2 minutes. set to 0 for no time out

Hi,
The android app, I miss the keypad, it had its uses :-)
The ability to input and update counter values, temperature settings etc.
The ability to set scheduled events via the app also would be very useful.
