I've been an Insteon user for about 2 years and I love the switches and wall plugs. I wanted a better app experience so I decided to create a new one.

SceneFlow is a simple and elegant home automation app that makes it easy for you to manage all your connected devices in one place. Control Insteon lights, switches, and sensors.

Features:

  • It is simple and intuitive - making home automation seamless for anyone

  • An elegant user experience, reflecting the investment you've made in your connect home

  • Personalized Home screen can display any devices, scenes or rooms for quick access

  • Customizable wallpaper, includes beautiful high resolution photography

  • Fast and responsive, all processing is local when you're at home



Best of all, it's available for FREE in the App Store for iPhone. Works with Insteon hub 2245-222.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sceneflow/id1118095312?mt=8

As a firm believer in the connected home, it's great to finally introduce an app that will help improve the way we interact with our home.

Feedback and feature requests are welcomed.

I've haven't had the chance to review your App but wanted to personally thank you for taking the time to develop and offer the same for free to the community.

Thank You Sir!

Thanks for the kind words! Insteon (and others) make really great hardware, but I think there's room for a more engaging experience - this will hopefully draw more people into the connected home.

I don't suppose you plan on an Android version (he says hopefully)?

Yes! I'd like to release the Android phone and tablet version at the same time. It's a little more work, but I think it'll be worth the wait

SceneFlow now has native iPad support that takes advantage of larger tablet screens. Works in both landscape and portrait mode and includes a screen rotation lock under the Settings tab.

I downloaded the app to try on my iPad Pro 9.7 but it will not log into my hub.

Just FYI, besides the new 2245-222 Hub for Amazon Alexa, there is still an older 2242-222 Hub on my system running most of my scenes. I'm wondering if your SceneFlow doesn't know which one to connect to. In the Insteon App for the Hub I can select which house (hub) I want to connect to.

Thanks, I fixed a bunch of bug in the last release. If you're still seeing issues, let me know and I'll get them fixed.

I'm assuming there's only one hub per account. I'll work on fixing that for next release.

Hey Brandt, looking forward to it!

I don't see a PM option available here, so send me an email and we can arrange a time to talk. I can be reached at [email protected]

Hey Glen,
Not at the moment, but I will look at adding support if there's enough interest from the community.

I believe you will see great reception, feedback, and traction, if you decide to develop a robust smart application that can take advantage of the ISY Series Controller. Also, I truly believe if you used this custom HAD interface to update the ISY Series Controller to offer more than what is available or to compliment the existing Admin Console the heavens would open and rain down gold bars upon your head: http://wiki.universal-devices.com/index.php?title=Home_Automation_Dashboard

Please consider reviewing the link to the HAD interface and considering making a 2017 Smart Application for the ISY Series Controller.

Developer EDOC's for the controller: http://www.universal-devices.com/isy-developers/

Thank You!

How can I not consider it after a post like that! I've only heard good things about the ISY hub, but wasn't sure about the size of the user base. I'll definitely take a look at the docs and see what can be done.

I'm doing my best to finish the Android app before Christmas, so I'll spend some time reviewing the ISY over the holidays.

Speaking for myself and many others we thank you for taking the time to consider this area of development. Please note you can engage Michel the CEO about developer discounts for the hardware and software plugins.

The company is extremely open, active, and encourages third party development support for their platform. I would be eager to assist in any Alpha / Beta trials for iOS and for the HAD interface for the ISY Series Controller.

Please attach this URL reference to any correspondence with UDI to speed up the process.

Thank you so very much and Merry X-MAS to you and yours!

Sceneflow - I have the original Hub and although your App recognizes my devices, I am unable to control my lighting. Is this app compatible with the original Hub?

Let there be light!

Five years later and your iOS app looks very nice! Still no love for Android, though. Any plans to add that in the near future?
