First, a brief about what the product can and can't do:
The functions of this device are:
- Motion sensor: very useful and can be integrated with HomeKit to control other devices like turning on/off lights.
- Temperature sensor: Can be integrated with HomeKit to show the temperature in Apple Home app and ask Siri: "What is the temperature from my Living room temperature sensor", but can't be used as a trigger for other HomeKit devices like the motion sensor does.
- Humidity sensor: Nice to have, just like the temperature sensor, can be seen in Apple Home app, but no integration can be done.
- Sound Sensor: Nice to have, but not supported by Apple HomeKit.
It has a nice monitor showing the Temperature in C/F and humidity with 3 levels of dim light.
You can create a notification of from any of the sensor using the iHome app which is a plus. Also you can control other iHome devices using the sensor only within the iHome app.
Now let's move to the reality.
The device is NOT stable at all and keeps running into reboot loop, it never works for more than 1 Hour.
I've tried every single possible solution like (disconnect power/ reconnect, hard reset, changing power adapter, changing position, Firmware update) all without any result.
The device keep going into this problem, and now it stays like that until I disconnect/reconnect power, then it works for 1 hour or so. It won't be available in neithre iHome app nor Apple Homekit App, and you can connect/reset the device remotely.
This makes it completely not reliable or useful.
It is not the quality expected from a certified HomeKit device. Similar devices are available with higher prices, but more reliable and stable.
If this is the case with other buyers, I don't recommend anyone to buy this product unless the manufacturer releases a firmware update to resolve the problem.
