Can't find a scene? We updated the language to reflect that in the scenes modal.
Opening up a location and watching the app crash, well it's not your internet! We patched it up so the app doesn't get overwhelmed.
A few days without the devices modal really left us missing out, but it decided to rejoin the team.
The app was so focused on delivering the best terminal experience that it forgot to focus on the main view - so we reminded it of the importance of sharing it's focus with both.
Release date: 12/16/20

Actions and triggers were momentarily lost, but now they are found!
Scene buttons now exist for parent locations 😅
Our overwhelmed app decided to take a break every time you made a new scene 😱, but after plenty of rest, it should no longer need to crash.
Did the scene names look a little funny to you with words like `INTMotion TimeOut: false`?!? Well, don't worry, it's back to its normal name of `Motion Timeout`.
Trying to edit an action, but getting gated by the Done button and the lack of buttons to click? For the meantime, we rolled back to the old way of making scenes, until we can further assess what went wrong and how to make it more user-friendly.
Refresh is no longer clearing your changes when you edit a name in config 😎, but not to worry, you can always edit it again if you want to change it.

The set command became more human friendly, and now allows you to optionally pass the name of a parameter instead of the index (ex:

No matter how enlarged your web app screen is now the slider won't grow with it.
*The terminal: Will no longer print duplicate mac addresses when using the
getdatacommand. Working in the terminal and accidentally x out no longer clears your history. Keep in mind, refreshing the page still will clear the terminal. The background was too transparent last month and it was hard to see, but we darkened it up.
*For company users and above
Release date: 04/14/2020
We fiddled with the app's logic so that if a location has scenes in it and no devices, then the devices tab will not auto show to remove an extra step for you.
For all the company and admin users out there, we prioritized cleaning up the terminal for two major reasons:
The terminal would empty out, so after running your command the screen turned black and all your work was lost. 😢
The help section in the terminal was outdated and not super helpful.
Within the app, you have the ability to rename your devices from the default device name and mac address. However, the data worker would randomly decide to rename some custom names, but we told it to stop and it listened.

Release Date: 04/02/2019
Occupancy Chart! As of now, we show you how many hours each location has been occupied (and how many it was vacant). We will continue to extend this feature to provide more useful data through these charts.
Some updates to when we show the Sync icon to make it more intuitive that when it's there, something should be done. It only shows if there are devices that need to be saved. The badge only shows if those devices are currently powered up.
Scheduling locations were not showing scene buttons

New interface streamlines commissioning into three simple steps
Release date: 03/25/2019
Step 1 is to add a location. There’s a cool new feature here called Room Type, with predefined location settings based on common configurations.
Step 2 is to add devices to your location.
You can search for devices fast by typing in the last four digits of their MAC addresses, found on the sticker provided with each device.
Step 3 is to configure your location settings. This drawer slides up when you’re ready to add settings to your location.
*Important: Before following any of the steps above, check with your Amatis representative to confirm your site’s Amatis Border Router(s) (AMBR) has been secured before going any further. If this has not happened yet, your representative can schedule this for you.
