Homewave project dead?
« on: September 20, 2018, 10:07:26 am »
Doesn't appear to have been any updates in over 7 months.  Just curious if the project has run its course?

There's a few things I need to get around to fixing, but other than that I feel the app is more or less where I want it to be.  Of course there's always more functions that could be added...
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

I have used VeraMate for many years on 2 iPhones.  Sad the developer has abandoned it. If Homewave has a free version to try out, I may make the move from VeraMate. Thus far, VeraMate does over 90% of what I need it to do but the AltHue support is weak.

I second this! I am also looking for a replacement to VM. I wish there was a free version of the Homewave app to try out.

That has been asked before!  I will look into how easy it is to put out a free trial version.

And if the software is as good as VeraMate, you can raise the price to $5.99. That is what VeraMate charged for the Premium and I purchased it for 2 iPhones.

Yes, bugs in HomeWave are still being addressed.  At the moment that includes some issues with the "Notch", connectivity issues that some people are experiencing, and compatibility with the 12" iPad Pro.  Also some cameras do not appear to work as they should
