I have hexagons starter kit + 3 x triangles + mini triangles and the dodecahedron remote control. Loved the layout assistant which we used to configure a layout before buying. The shapes were quite easy to put together and stuck to the wall easily. Once we got them working, we were delighted with what they can do, how innovative, creative and flexible they are. Absolutely brilliant 😃.
Not so good was the instructions for setting up, connecting to Wi-fi / iPhones - iPads etc. Firstly, nowhere could we find info on what the “buttons” on the control unit do, and found out some of it by “suck & see”. Second, the panels worked when trying out the layout on the floor, but couldn’t get it to work after sticking to the wall. By scrabbling around various online pages, found that it might need a “soft reset” or a “hard (factory) reset” - but no link or instructions on how to do that. Eventually found another online page which described hard reset and did it - which got the panels working. Then we came to trying to link it to iPhone/iPad - again, poor instructions - it said to scan the product code, but iPhone “home” wouldn’t scan the QR code - it wanted a numeric code to scan. The PSU does have a numeric code - but it’s split over 2 lines, so won’t scan into HomeKit! The instructions said if it doesn’t scan to input the code manually - but HomeKit doesn’t allow this! Eventually managed to get it configured (don’t ask me how, I can’t remember), but couldn’t get partner’s iPhone connected as a separate account, so she had to sign in with my credentials. Still haven’t managed to get her iPad to connect. Fortunately, the dodecahedron remote control configured easily and has lots of scenes “built in”, so we’re using that.
Real shame that the instructions aren’t better, as the technology is fab. [Btw, I’m NOT a technophobe - I have lots of other intelligent devices (Siri controlled and others, eg. Nest, Ring, Hive, etc) and my first career was in IT.]
These were a surprise gift for my grandaughter who said they are beyond her expectations.
