The new features on v1.42 of the Comfort iPhone are are shown here

Minimum firmware
  1. UCM/Ethernet 6.002 or above
  2. Comfort firrmware 6.004 or above

Audible feedback when any key is pressed was the most requested feature, and has been implemented in the new version, with quite a distinct sound.

Notification when the login code is wrong;



 

Display of Open zones when arming, with audible tone



 

Countdown Timer for Entry and Exit with audible tone




Display of Active Security Mode - Away, Night, Day by flashing icon



 

Display of Alarm on Keypad,  eg Intruder, Panic, Fire, Arm fail, Low Battery, with audible alarm tone




Trouble Conditions Page


 

Improved Setup Screen



 

Arming can be Local, or Remote ie Comfort knows if you need to EXIT when arming to Away mode, depending on whether you are local or remote. If you are LOCAL ie connected by LAN, then you need to EXIT from the Entry door in order to complete the Arm to Away Mode. If you are connected by Internet, ie REMOTE, you do not need to EXIT to arm to Away Mode.
Arming remotely (ie connected by INTERNET) will require another login for security purposes.





Up to 4 IP Cameras can be shown







 


Display of Connection status to the UCM/Ethernet


  • Connected
  • Disconnected
  • Data Error
The Comfort APP will automatically log out when manually disconnected or when the app goes into the background, ie log out of Comfort before disconnecting.

Multiple IP access has been ruled out due to security issues as discussed in http://www.comfortforums.com/forum66/2141.html

Please note that Comfort firmware 6.004 or above is required for the app to work fully. Firmware 6.004 is not released yet but is expected in a few days

If Comfort firmware 5.215, which is the older version is used, the only difference will be the following
  • When arming to AWAY mode when connection is by Internet ie Remote Away Arming, and there are open zones all open zones will be automatically bypassed and the system is armed without any exit delay. With Comfort firmware 6.004, for Remote away arming, if there are any open zones, they will be displayed in the keypad page, and the user must press # to force arm the system, then the system is armed without needing to exit This is a better and more secure operation compared to the older firmware
