App Releases

Version 4.37

Release date: 10/31/20

New Features:

  • Parent locations got upgraded with a status, slider, and occupancy graph ๐Ÿ˜œ
  • The location path made another move by heading to the top right ๐Ÿ†™.


Bug Fixes:

  • We flipped the location name with Hide Devices and Scenes to make sure you can always see the location you are working in. 
  • Actions and triggers were momentarily lost, but now they are found!
  • Scene buttons now exist for parent locations ๐Ÿ˜…
  • Our overwhelmed app decided to take a break every time you made a new scene ๐Ÿ˜ฑ, 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 ๐Ÿ˜Ž, but not to worry, you can always edit it again if you want to change it. 
  • Nothing is worse than having a button, hiding behind another button so the Edit button in devices and scenes scooched over to the bottom right. 

Version 4.36

Release date: 9/18/20

New Features:

  • Calling all company users: You can now edit your device names in the config tab


  • Another move for the devices and scenes! They headed up to the top of the page to make it easier to view uniformly as you hop from one location to the next.


  • Toggle on a view of all the devices and scenes in your location or toggle them off, the choice is yours and it awaits in the top right corner.
  • Last month the tooltips made an appearance in getdata and this time they made their way into the devices modal.

Bug Fixes:

  • Slider control got redirected to calling their correct direct control scenes for each location ๐Ÿ™Œ
  • Your parent locations are back in line with the rest of the locations in the left navigation.
  • The microscope icon found its way to the right, but we guided it back to the left.
  • Scene buttons appear now without any refreshes!

Bug Fixes:

  • In an effort to display everything for a location, we overloaded it ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ causing lags; but don't fear, a fix is here! The root displays as a list of parent locations now that you are linked! 


  • Are you a chrome user? We are too, and now you can access ambr from chrome again! ๐Ÿ‘

  • Looking to delete a device while in the config tab? Look no further than our new delete device button. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  • The search bar and the OTA checkbox just got a little more font awesome-y!

    • Got a PHD or DCDIM in a location?! Do not worry about location settings not opening up!

  • The grace period sliders will hide unless they are selected to provide you with a more uniform flow.

Release date: 5/30/20

New Features:

    • The set command became more human friendly, and now allows you to optionally pass the name of a parameter instead of the index (ex: set [device-mac] -i Mode -v 4 )

Version 4.33.0

Release date: 04/14/2020

New Features:

  • 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.

Bug Fixes: 

  • 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. ๐Ÿ˜ข 
    • 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.

Version 4.0

New interface streamlines commissioning into three simple steps

 Release date: 03/25/2019

  • Step 1 is to add a location. Thereโ€™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.
Heads Up!
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 youโ€™re ready to add settings to your location.
*Important: Before following any of the steps above, check with your Amatis representative to confirm your siteโ€™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.
