Inveltr, is there a way to do sub-menus? I'd like to have "rooms" > "office" and then have my room controls. 

Also, great work on a kick-butt app.  This is by far the best one for iOS.

Sorry, my mistake. It Works fine.

Is it not possible to handle multiple Vera's ? I have one at home and one in my Beach house.

Planned for the release after the next, but I am not sure yet how to implement.

You can set up HomeWave for your home, save that configuration, then start over and configure/save for your beach house.  You can then simply load the config for the place you wish to control.

A future version will support controlling multiple Veras in a single configuration.

The best thing I like about the new revision is the sliders.  I don't have any unsupported hardware, so I'm not too worried about that.  I did read in the release notes that devices (dimmers? others?) now support power usage, though, and it interests me.  Can I use that with any old dimmer or switch, like my Monster Illuminessence (Vizia RF, not +) stuff?

Not a gripe: I'm still using default colors & backgrounds.  I'd love to customize it, but the app works great as it is.  SO much faster than iVera since an early revision.  The few times I've added backgrounds & things, it washes the buttons out, so I'd have to then start tweaking button colors...  I ain't got time fo dat...  :P

If those switches and dimmers report power usage, you'll be able to display it in HomeWave on the controls

Hi

Can you please add the ability to turn off the report of power usage on Thermostats. Both in the control and sensor reporting applications.

Thanks
Greg

Open the properties for the device and turn off "Show power use", that will remove the power consumption thing

That option doesn't exist for the thermostats that I have linked to. I have linked to a Trane thermostat.

Hi,

when I set a temperature in a Thermostat Setpoint is it possible to have a confirmation message of the effective change ?

Thanks

Been using the app for quite awhile and I love it.

It does need some work on the landscape iPad screens. If you have icons on the room buttions the layout looks really bad. The icons get turned off in portrait mode so the screen looks fine.

Keep up the great work.

Just want to say we have tested many mobile apps (it's part of what we do after all) and HomeWave is by far the best mobile app out there!  The ipad layout is a bit clunky but the iphone one is perfect!  Keep up the great work!

My advice for iPad users is to keep the buttons on the Home screen as square as possible, or to design for either portrait or landscape and use one orientation exclusively.  See also the new thread on the iPad UI :)
