I downloaded the app and linked it directly to my voice assistant app. I had no issues whatsoever. Everything works flawlessly. Even using voice commands, and setting it to different scenes is simplified. As I leave my home or arrive home, I can turn on and off my lights seamlessly. I need one in every room." —Gigi
