Any news on an update for the iOS app as it stands? It's been an age since it has been updated and to be honest it's a pretty pathetic interface and app. I've been patiently awaiting a ground up re-write for a while now but with no joy.

As for us it's an integral part of the whole comfort system it seems to be somewhat neglected especially as it doesn't even support the larger screen of the iPhone 5 / 5S / 5C which have been out for not far off 2 years!

Please, at least let us know if there's at least a roadmap or timescale for what is a fantastic part of the Comfort system that is sorely lacking.

Any knowledge on this would be great

Steve

yes it has been a long time
The good news is that we are redeveloping all the apps, but we have started with the Android tablet and phone
You can see some screenshots of the android phone app here http://www.comfortforums.com/forum110/3810.html
The user interface should be similar

The next will be the iOS apps. We hope to be able to test soon

Great news there's something happening - was starting to worry that it had been left to die.

If I can be of any help in the development / testing I would be more than happy to help as this is something that is really important for me that I believe could really set aside Comfort as a fantastic system that others can't touch.

One of the most frustrating things that is currently the case with the app is the double log in.

We use this extensively for disarming the alarm and pulling into the garage that works currently something like this...

Log into App (with code) -> Enter code again on in-app keypad -> F7 to activate garage door relay.

Also when leaving the house...

Log into App (with code) -> F4 for Gate relay -> F7 to active garage door relay -> Away button to arm

If we could get rid of the double log in this would improve the functionality considerably.

This is all done over wifi using outdoor access points to gain signal when approaching property so no port forwarding for external use.

The new apps will have an auto-login option, similar to the current iPad app
If the connetion is LAN ie wifi, you do not need to login to arm the system
