Hi, apologies as i haven't been checking the forums. i've tried increasing the range and also decreasing it and still getting the same problem. basically the dot is sitting right next to my phone on its holder when i enter the vehicle. when it launches waze it works perfect but then it just keeps trying to launch waze while in the waze app already so i get the annoying notification.
I am finding the exact same issue. I have 3 dots, I removed all commands on each one. I have updated the firmware on each one. I have even gone so far as to delete the app and download. For someone as OCD as myself, this notification is driving me nuts! !
@Coop42 The roommate mode is really meant for other individuals. We didn't enable it to light up when you are in range of your own Dot because that would be useless. A better test would be setting up a notification to wait for you when you enter range.
@Fleur Can you specify more about the Button, which use cases have you tried? Do you have only one Dot? Is it working with any of the others, if you have multiple? The Philips Hue use case has been notoriously difficult to standardize because Philips has been breaking our use case with every update. For now, I recommend connecting to Philips using IFTTT, many of our users have had more success getting it to work with that.
EDIT: Was able to figure out it was a syncing issue. I'm not sure if it was an issue with using a + in the email address, to allow for a specific address to be used with the iota dot, but if you are using an email with that in, removing it helped with my issues.
If you're having difficulty adding IFTTT, to a Dot, click on "Check it Out" and NOT "Add App". I'm hoping they'll have a better set of instructions for this in the future, and from there you should be able to click on one of the iota labs apps for use. Click and you should be able to select one of the iota dots that you have added.
If you are still having trouble adding, click on the Gear button in the top right hand corner, and either disconnect so you can re-add your connection or click on "Edit connection". Upon clicking on "Edit connection", you should be able to put in your username and password again, so you're able to link the Dots to your account again.
From here, you should have your dots connected again, and you should be able to access them by using an IFTTT app, through setup.
That's what helped me. Hope it helps you. Still would love to know when the "Add App" is back to working properly.
Sorry but I don't have time to waste either trying to attempt fixes (if indeed they were ever forthcoming) for an obviously flawed product, or having to wait a week between replies. It's a garbage product that's nothing like the original concept, and so I'm redeploying it to its rightful place - in the garbage!
I tried Hue with a different dot today, so 2. Added both the Hue app and the button off app. Made sure the room name is exactly as defined. It didn't work. No response on entering or exiting the defined room. Made sure Dot sees my phone. Nothing got the lights to come on. I wonder if this week's Hue firmware update may be the cause? It seems to me these tech gimmicks only work for short periods. Too many changes in too many places create an unstable user experience. A shame really. Anyway, anyone else struggle to switch on a room or is this just me?
