Bug Fixes

Scenes – Create and control scenes (Scenes would allow you to control multiple devices at the same time. For example you can turn all your lights off with a single click).
Added support for Philips Hue (Ability to control Philips Hue lamps through all the interfaces and also include in the Rules and Scenes. .
Controlling the sensors locally via the Almond App – Ability to switch between cloud and local connections using the cloud icon on the top right corner.
Wi-Fi/Wired Clients – Using Wi-Fi/Wired clients as presence sensors in Rules when your Almond+ is in Router mode. You have to first enable “Use as Presence” sensor option. These client devices are shown in the sensors tab of the Local Web UI and Network devices section of the Android app and iOS app. In our experience, most mobiles (phones and tablets) connect almost instantly when they come into contact with the Router. However, there is a lot of variance in the way they re-connect. We noticed that these devices periodically reconnect to the Wi-Fi network, but this period can be anywhere between 1 to 60 minutes. We have decided to set a default time-out of 6 minutes based on the behavior of most popular iOS and Android phones.
