When this works it is great. Problem now is that the app apparently did an update, or just decided to forget my data info, and now does not recognize my water heater anymore, so it wants me to re-register my water heater. Problem is that it is in our vacation condo and we turn the heater on the day we are heading there and turn off the vacation mode. So now we will have to get to the condo to turn on the hot water! And wait for hot water. Kind of defeats the point of controlling by Wi-Fi if the app cannot keep your info, especially for an update. Please fix the bugs! When this works it is very convenient but when it doesn’t the water heater is just another water heater that you manually have to operate.

Needs Major Improvement
Maybe it’s because it’s so new, but this app is trash. Unless you have a rate plan with your electric company, you really can’t do much with the app. There’s a “schedule” feature, but all it does is “top your tank off with hot water” at whatever time you set it for. Dumb. Why not create a schedule feature where I can leave the temp at 95° all day when I’m not using it, and then set it to go up to a desired temp at a certain time for bath time, etc. To me, that’s what a schedule feature should do. I try to manually do this, but I’m updating several times a day, and sometimes I forget, then I have colder showers, or I’m paying extra to keep water hot all night when I’m not using it. And half the time, manually changing the temp on the app doesn’t work either. It will say “updating set point” and then when it updates, it’s the same temp I started with. This app definitely needs some hard work. For what I paid for the water heater I know y’all can afford to hire someone to work on this.

App is up to date but lacking
The AO Smith app has a nice appearance, fairly easy to navigate, register water heater, change temp, heating mode, etc. My biggest complaint is there is a button to click that is labeled “Energy Usage” that is useless. It always says “Unable to load energy usage data”. Competitors have a functioning app that displays actual energy usage data. A big reason people spend 2-4x of a typical electric water heater is to save energy and lower their electric bill. A great way to confirm this purchase and have folks like myself recommend them is to show me the data. AO Smith please remedy this.

Logged in, registered water heater through app and it worked great. Next day I had to logon again!? 2 hours later app couldn’t see water heater through WiFi. 3 hours later it’s working fine and I did nothing. Next day, opened as expected and all worked, 6 hrs later app is totally reset, no water heater, no profile?!? A.O. Smith you need to fix this buggy app or stop selling smart water heaters because it’s just another water heater without the app.

Works but cannot add a time use rate plan manually
My electric company’s time use rate plan was not able to be found automatically. I when I tried to enter the rate plan manually, there is a bug that prevents me from entering the cost per KWH entering any number in the cost field automatically adds a dollar sign in decimal point leaving the digits to the left of the decimal point always at zero. Only the digits to the right of the decimal point can be edited.

Does not work
I wasn’t getting any readings for temperature just said null I was able to register the water heater I think. Was hooked up to WiFi. Now I have been kicked off the app asking me to sign in but won’t let me tried creating the account again won’t let me what a joke. This is one of the features that sold me on the water heater you would think they would figure this out I sure hope this isn’t a sign of the quality of the water heater. If they can’t figure out an app maybe they shouldn’t be making water heater’s.

What happened ????
Upon first install, the app retained my use name and password and seemed to be always monitoring my hot water heater. Within the last few days, I would need to renter my password to check the unit. Now, the app continues to also loose my user name. What has happened to this app ? Do you folks even test the app after an update ?? Further, if I have to log in every time it is used, what are my assurances that the app is even monitoring the water heater /or/ better yet, what are my assurances that the app will alert me of a leak ???

The hot water availability ring always shows red without regard to how much hot water is available. Once you add a rate plan it cannot be removed, only changed and not all plans are available. I though it would be good to an app connected Hester but it turns out my needs are to have hot water 24x7 and it looks like this isn’t going to be possible with this set up. The app won’t allow it. I should have gotten a more basic heater. The app doesn’t do what I need and the “hot water availability” icon does nothing.

Needs a Water Softener App
While the water softener connects to WiFi and it emails warning messages, the product as presented causes the consumer to believe the product works via an app. A more effective and robust app would make this a much better product, especially given the price. On a side note, product instructions need to be more clearly written.

this app was seriously written by someone with the development skills of an intro to programming high school class. This product is a lot of money. They should put some of that money into app development. It's almost criminal making this app available at all. one real basic thing is all that we ask: - current temperature of water in the tank There are certainly other things, but just that one basic thing would go along way.

WiFi / Bluetooth a pain, energy usage display useless
Had to power cycle the heater a couple of times. Energy usage display chart seems broken, I just see a flat line and a lifetime energy usage. I want to see how much energy it consumes per day, when it heats and when it is idle and confirm that it works in sync with my utility plan.

No options on app for Water Softener
I purchased the Softener (450T) seeing a mobile device , indicating WiFi salt alerts. No option for mobile devices for the softener on the app. It’s a simple task to build the platform for water softener, like the water heaters. Please develop this technology or remove the mobile device picture from the advertising labels.

App needs a ton of work
Very difficult to get my new water heater added. Thought the extra money would be nice for the added WiFi features however it’s a terrible app. Wish I would have found the reviews for this function before spending the extra money. Also, the first water heater was faulty the day of installation and cost me several hundred more to replace. Overall a bad experience from the start.

So far so good (day 2)
I downloaded this app and iCOMM as our new HPWH is Wi-Fi enabled. ICOMM could not connect but this app did on first try. Not showing energy usage yet but we’ve only had it running for about 16 hours. Will update if it crashes or otherwise loses functionality.

Water Softener not water heater
I bought a water softener from the local Lowe’s store. Your apps are only for water heaters which is not right. You have other products as well. The 450t water softener I bought has WiFi option but there are no apps through your company. Please fix so those of us with water softener units will have the same option to check the softener menu and details from our phones too.

Zero App Tech Support
Good luck in using the app. The basics work ok but when trying to auto import or manually import your utility plans and costs, it errors out. Multiple calls to app tech support over many days, yields nothing. Many transfers, promised call backs never happen, even when given a case number. Use at your own risk. They don’t seem to value their customers

Company does not honor their warranty
Had a gas sensor go out on my Water Heater. They claimed it wasn’t covered under the warranty anymore. 6 year warranty and my 6 years isn’t up. Currently buying a new water heater from someone else. Avoid their products at all costs. You’ll notice no way to leave a review for them on Facebook. Now you know why they set it up that way.

Wi-Fi is garbage
I just bought this water heater and paid the extra money mainly for the Wi-Fi connectivity feature…. The app cannot confirm the serial number on my model so the app is useless but besides that manually works fine…. Get your dev team to fix the app or at least keep it up to date

Does not work
Wish that I had read these reviews before paying extra money for the Wi-Fi connected version. I must agree with many of the other reviews on this thread. The app does not connect with the water heater and the telephone helpline is unable to resolve the problem. Buyer beware!

Not for Softeners
DON’T DO IT. This app is for water heaters only, NOT for home softeners. If you want it because you bought a new softener, don’t bother.

Not very capable
Can control temperature and mode from the app but that’s about it. Not able to create a schedule to automatically control temperature by time and day of week. Tried both ICOMM and A.O. Smith apps. Not able to apply time of use rate plan even though my rate plan is listed.

Previously it wouldn’t recognize my serial number. Now it does but when I enter my DSN, it says it is already in use. Yes, I used it once when I was able to access the system. Needs to be fixed by giving the option to reset that DSN.

You can set your desired temp, and change modes from standard to vacation. As noted above , useless. You would think it could tell you: 1. The actual temperature of the water in the tank 2. Are the heaters on and if so, which ones.
