- Disappoitment Review by Autonow
I got one of these I only lasted a few months long enough to be out of warranty.
Initially it worked fine had to press the button a few time to get it to accept the input.
The main problem was after I let it sit a few months in off with no use it would not take a charge and would not work. Since you can not change the battery it became a waste of money. I would find a way to use the powered keyads or just use mobilinc.

- Great idea. Implementation needs refinement. Review by James
Great idea. Implementation needs refinement.
Size is fantastic. Buttons are butterfly-angled which feels good in the hand - but means you can't really put labels on them and no custom etching is available. Not that you'd spend that much extra money on these - the batteries aren't replaceable and won't last as long as you'd hope. But at least they're rechargeable by USB while they last.
The visor clips and table stands are oddly absent and sold separately for a shocking amount of money for what's a few pennies worth of injection molded plastic.

- A $45 disposable Review by Curmudgeon1
A $45 disposable
When the battery stops taking a charge, it's done. Throw it away. Too pricey not to be repairable.

- Bad quality battery Review by Ellison
Bad quality battery
Had it charged 3 times, then it stopped working. Green light turns on when connected to power, but it doesn't seem to keep charges anymore. Synced devices won't respond to its commands anymore. I have other models of Insteon mini remotes that are still working though.

- They sure are pushing these remotes, why are they better supported ? Review by CptKwirk
They sure are pushing these remotes, why are they better supported ?
They really seam to be pushing these remotes in sales all the time, but why aren't they supported in the Android App? I have quite a controllers that are hidden behind wall switches and in fixtures, so the "tap to program" method really isn't practical. Why can't these be programmed and added to scenes like all other devices? I understand its a battery device, but couldn't they set into a programming mode and then look like the wire in switches?

- No instructions, illogical app, totally useless Review by PHB
No instructions, illogical app, totally useless
I know what I want this to do. What I can't work out is how to make it do what I want. I literally have a degree in nuclear physics and I have been using computers over 40 years. The windows 10 app doesn't seem to be able to program these at all.
Logically, you would select the device and assign functions to the buttons. Nope, doesn't work that way, select the remote and it asks if you want to turn it off.
There are no instructions anywhere on how to program these devices and without that they are useless.
The hub itself isn't capable of being programmed for interesting functions like 'open the garage doors and turn on the light if it is dark.'

- Battery Life? Review by rsable
Can someone please comment on the battery life. I can't imagine mounting this on the wall without a charger like they show in some pictures. Don't own one yet so don't think it is fair to give it bad rating.
Smarthome response: Battery Charge Hold Duration: 5~6 months based on average 5 button presses/day(will decrease over time).

- Makes Life Easier Review by David
Makes Life Easier
I bought this because it is a hassle to load up a smartphone app every time I want to turn the lights on or off. It works without a hitch. I've programmed the unit through the Revolv Hub app as well as manually. Both worked, however, I noticed better response when manually programming the remote without the Revolv App. I'm not sure where the complaints are coming from about the remote only working in the same room, because I can move to the other side of my house or the basement and still get the remote to operate my bedroom lights. I guess it depends on the interferences people have in their house.

- Bad printing Review by Juan
The lettering on all my remotes has worn out quickly. Now the front is just white with no markings whatsoever.
