    This first beta release is for Android mobile devices. An IOS version will be available shortly. As with any beta release, bugs and other issues may be encountered and these may impact the stability of your HomeSeer system. If this is not acceptable, you should wait for the final release version.

    The App supports Android version 5 and later (Lollipop).

    • Customizable dashboard. Add any device, resize, control items to show. Multiple dashboards are supported
    • Device list. Shows all devices, supports sorting and controlling any device and adding devices to the dashboard.
    • Event list. Show all events, run an event, add to the dashboard.
    • Camera list. Shows the latest snapshot from all cameras. Click on a camera to display larger real time view and pan/tilt controls. The camera list is auto updated every 10 seconds.
    • Supports log in from MyHS and local IP.

    We have a knowledge base with some documentation here:

    You can also get to this knowledge base from the help menu in the app.

    Reporting Bugs / Issues
    If you run into any crashes, you will be prompted with a dialog to submit crash info, please submit this! It will contain valuable information.

    If you find a non-crash bug or there is an enhancement you would like to request, from within HomeSeer Mobile select the menu icon (upper left corner) then the "Send Feedback" item. This will start an email. Fill it in and submit. You can include screen shots as attachments. This will create a ticket in our bug tracking system.

    You can also post any issue to this forum so others can review, but an issue will not get addressed unless it is in our bug tracker.

    I got 4 crash with the app, sorry i missed the dialog box.

    3 of them when i tried to control a device in the device page of the app. The reason is because i changed the buttons of the device in HS3. Finally i had to close and refresh the app to get the device with the new buttons

    The last crash was when i tried to edit a scene icon in the dashbboard. The app just crashed after that.

        I can confirm the same.

        However if you manualy put in the browser it will download the .460 file.

            "Error: Trust Failure"

            When trying to connect via hostname.

            The app does not respect the user imported certificate store perhaps?


              I am not able to see the following Z-Wave devices:
              Z-Wave deadbolt - Brand is Yale Model is B1L
              Garage door sensor and the ancillary devices/monitors associated with it. - Brand is Ecolink
              I have verified the "show in mobile" ect boxes are checked.

              I am able to see the following Z-Wave devices:
              Fibaro Button along with all the other ancillary devices/monitors created with it (Battery, status, ect)
              Front door sensor along with all the other ancillary devices/monitors created with it (Battery, status, ect) - Brand is Monoprice
              HS Multi sensor shows up fine as well - Brand is HomeSeer
              Remote Outdoor outlet - Brand is GE

              Would like to be able to lock and unlock directly.
              I created a Battery Dashboard so I could monitor all the Z-Wave device's batteries and can only see the Front door sensor and the Fibaro button.
              Cannot see the Deadbolt or the Garage door sensor battery monitors at this time.

                OK, one more weird thing.
                This concern is with X-10 motion sensors.

                Some sensors I click on and it immediately changes from motion to no motion (Like controlling a light)
                Some sensors I click and the control dialog box pops up at the bottom of the screen

                I have compared settings in both HS and in the App, all are the same.


                  Don't know if it's the backend servers, the HS update or the HS Mobile, but once it has started it feels just faster and snappier.

                  It does take longer to start up, though. After logging in I get a black screen for a few seconds (up to 7-8?), and then the app starts like normal.

                  Are you Norwegian (or Scandinavian) and getting started with HomeSeer? Read the "HomeSeer School"!


                    I updated the app and HS (to 460). The app immediately crashes my device. I'm using Android 5.0.2.


                      would it be at all possible to look at the sizing of the widgets? Perhaps auto sizing? I know it appears minor but if I use the below device as an example then if I make it smaller in height I lose the on/off buttons (the outlines do not show in the picture oddly), making it wider and lowering the height also loses the buttons. It seems this is the smallest size to keep the buttons but there is a lot of wasted space - or the buttons could be bigger/center aligned?


                        I still get a crash when scrolling through my devices without a filter when I get towards the end of the list. If I filter I can see all of the devices eventually. So my guess is that a specific device isn't causing it but the amount of devices is?

                          Version 1.0 works fine on LG6 with Oreo but it instantly reboots my Fire HD8 and HD10 when I start the app.

                            Hey Rich, I'm still seeing the 459 in the href for the download links on the beta page for hs3.

                            EDIT: The links look good now as of 7/28/18 4:06PM CDT.

                              When I try to run the HS# 460 update, whether I select Modify or Repair, it always states the "specified account already exists", and exits prematurely.
