Lightwaver for LightwaveRF™

Lightwaver for LightwaveRF™


This is a 7 day trial version. You can upgrade within the app to unlock full functionality.

See Google Plus page at http://goo.gl/QWfRN for more information and for some handy hints and tips that have been posted on the G+ Community page.

I do not look at bug reports submitted by the Android system. They are useless. If you need help, please get in touch directly.

Lightwaver allows you to control your LightwaveRF Home Automation products.

These are the same products as sold by B&Q but repackaged as Siemens

You will need:
At least one socket, switch or dimmer.
The LightwaveRF WiFi link hardware.
To use the Android TV functions, you will need an Android TV device running at least Android 5 Lollipop.

The hardware needs to be set up correctly. I cannot help you with this but it is not difficult and full instructions come with the hardware. Once set up, it works in the exact same way as the dedicated remote controls. Simply treat the app as a remote control and pair your hardware devices with the software devices in the app.

Alternatively, if you exactly match the rooms & devices in the same order as in the LightwaveRF manager on the web, then there is no need to pair any device, it will work right away (assuming the official app already works)

This app does not use the LightwaveRF portal unless you are away from home. It communicates directly with your WiFilink so is much faster.

*Why would I use this instead of the official app*
- Multiple locations.
- SSID detection for routing commands.
- Built in Tasker plugin.
- Voice control.
- Android Wear support
- Android TV support
- NFC Task Launcher compatibility
- Homescreen and lock screen widgets
- Designed to be pure Android
- Fully customisable icons
- To support a home developer.
- Backup data to Google Drive
- Good developer support.

LightwaveRF have not released their heating API to 3rd party developers so there is no way to incorporate heating function. Please complain about that one to them not me. It is out of my hands.

Responded to feedback Trial mode is now a time limited full version. Try it! Most of the functionality is just a variation on the manufacturers own app, but you might prefer it. The big selling point for me is the widgets. I now have my more common settings on my home screen. Is it possible to have a lock screen widget next?
